Two And A Half Or Three For Treason? We Can Do Better Than That!!

Patrick Fitzgerald has recommended that Scooter Libby be sentenced to two and a half or three years for what amounted to TREASON. So, that's the going rate for treason these days? You spend two and a half or three years in Club Fed (really will never see more than a year) for blowing a CIA officer's identity? Come on Fitzgerald, you can do better than that!!

Fitzgerald: Libby deserves 2-3 years in prison. “Former White House aide I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby betrayed the public’s trust and deserves to spend 2 1/2 to 3 years in prison for obstructing the CIA leak investigation, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said Friday.”

“Particularly in a case such as this, where Mr. Libby was a high-ranking government official whose falsehoods were central to issues in a significant criminal investigation, it is important that this court impose a sentence that accurately reflects the value the judicial system places on truth-telling in criminal investigations,” Fitzgerald wrote in court documents.

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton has broad discretion over Libby’s fate. Walton faces two important questions: whether to send Libby to prison and, if so, whether to delay the sentence until his appeals have run out.

Libby’s lawyers have not filed their sentencing documents yet but are expected to ask that he receive no jail time.

Mr. Fitzgerald, two and a half or three years doesn't accurately reflect the value of truth-telling in this country. Try LIFE!! Then maybe these sons of bitches will learn to tell the TRUTH!! Anything less is unacceptable!!
