Van Hollen Statement on President Bush Commuting Scooter Libby's Prison Sentence
Chairman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement today on news reports that President Bush commuted Dick Cheneys former Chief of Staff Lewis Scooter Libbys prison sentence:
A jury found Lewis Scooter Libby guilty of lying and obstructing the investigation of who leaked the identity of covert CIA operative and a judge sentenced him to prison but true to form, the Bush Administration wont be held accountable.
President Bushs decision to make sure his and Dick Cheneys loyal deputy doesnt pay for his crimes is just the latest example of their belief that the Bush Administration is above the law and not accountable.
