Scooter Libby

So Scooter is under investigation relating to the case where Plame's name was leaked to the press. I've no idea if he actually perjured himself or not (though this administration seems to have a very selective approach to applying morals).

I do, however, find Scooter's legal defense to be very suspicious. They're going to subpoena a bunch of the White House documents to "show" how overworked he was and how the perjury might be attributed Scooter being overloaded with too much stuff (and stuff more important than Valorie Plame). Well, the judge who is overseeing the case threw out another case when the defense wasn't allowed to get access to the documents deemed secret because of national security.

What do you think the odds are that the White House will withhold the documents he requests? The judge will have to throw out the case. Bush won't let his man hang out to dry, not while he was working to further the President's agenda.
