Which ought to remind everyone that Comey was always a left-wing partisan tool.
he D.C. Court of Appeals reinstated Former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, Lewis â€œScooterâ€ Libby, to the bar. Libby was previously convicted of lying in relation to the Valerie Plame scandal and can now freely practice law again. He was disbarred in the District of Columbia in 2008.
According to the National Law Journal, Libby entered the courtroom with 11 letters of support from a federal appeals judge and other legal dignitaries.
Judge Laurence Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit wrote that Libby had a â€œreputation as a skilled and ethical government official.â€
Disciplinary officials noted in their Sept. 23 report about Libby that he was found to be â€œforthright, candid, present, and recognized his situation with grace.â€
Libby requested over the summer that the D.C. Court of Appeals reinstate him to the D.C. Bar. On Thursday, exactly 11 years to the day following arraignment, he the court granted his request.
Washington D.C.-based former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova believes the Libby decision is a â€œterrible blowâ€ to FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday that the agency had no new conclusions on Hillary Clinton and her private server from the 650,000 new emails found on Anthony Weinerâ€™s laptop.
â€œScooter Libby was restored to the practice of law by the DC court of appeals because they believed that Scooter Libby presented evidence that his original trial had been corrupted by false testimony. And that false testimony was coerced by Jim Comeyâ€™s friend Patrick Fitzgerald and Comey was part of the team to destroy the vice president of the United States and it didnâ€™t happen,â€ DiGenova said.
He added,â€ Itâ€™s such a smack in the face to Jim Comey. Comey and Fitzgerald tried to frame Scooter Libby, and they did, but then they didnâ€™t get it done. And then of course that idiot George W. Bush didnâ€™t give him a pardon he only commuted his sentence.â€
