Cheney wanted full pardon for Libby

George W. Bush’s commutation of “Scooter” Libby’s (in photo) 30-month prison sentence in the Valerie Plame case wasn’t enough for Dick Cheney. On the day after the Bush-Cheney era ended, the former vice president told the Weekly Standard, speaking of his former chief of staff: “Scooter Libby is one of the most capable and honorable men I’ve ever known. He’s been an outstanding public servant throughout his career. He was the victim of a serious miscarriage of justice, and I strongly believe that he deserved a presidential pardon. Obviously, I disagree with President Bush’s decision.” According to the magazine, this was the fifth time Cheney publicly disagreed with his boss. The other four issues: a federal gay marriage ban, firing Donald Rumsfeld, D.C.’s gun ban and North Korea.
