Personal history

Background

According to Kenneth T. Walsh, Libby was born to a "prosperous family" in New Haven, Connecticut––his father was an "investment banker."[6] According to other news accounts, he first acquired his nickname "Scooter" as an infant, when his father, after seeing him move quickly across his crib, described him as "a scooter."[2][7] It has also been reported that the Libby "family lived in the Washington region, Miami and Connecticut before Scooter graduated from the Phillips Andover Academy in Massachusetts."[2] In 1972 he graduated magna cum laude from Yale University, where, reportedly, he was intensely influenced in his political thinking by Paul Wolfowitz, a professor who became his "mentor."[2][6][5]. In 1975 he received his Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Columbia Law School.

One of Libby's most infamous clients in his work as a private lawyer was fugitive billionaire commodities trader Marc Rich, who had been convicted of tax evasion and illegal trading with Iran, and who was pardoned by President Bill Clinton: Libby "represented Rich dating back to 1985 but stopped working for him in the spring of 2000"; early in March of 2001, at a "contentious" Congressional hearing to review Clinton's pardons, Libby "testified...[that] he believes prosecutors of billionaire financier Marc Rich 'misconstrued the facts and the law' when they went after Rich on tax evasion charges."[10] According to Jackson Hogan, Libby's roommate at Yale University, as quoted in the already-cited U.S. News & World Report article by Walsh, "'He is intensely partisan...in that if he is your counsel, he'll embrace your case and try to figure a way out of whatever noose you are ensnared in.'" Walsh adds: "That might help explain Libby's aggressive representation" of Rich.[6] Marc Rich (born Marc David Reich on December 18, 1934) is a billionaire international commodities trader who fled the United States in 1983 to live in Switzerland in order to avoid prosecution on charges of tax evasion and illegally making oil deals with Iran during the hostage crisis. ...

Government public service and political career

After working as a lawyer in Philadelphia, Libby "accepted a job offer from his old Yale political science professor, Paul Wolfowitz, and went to work for Wolfowitz at the State Department, from 1981 to 1985," as a member of the Secretary of State's Policy Planning Staff.[9] From 1982 to 1985, according to his official U.S. State Department biography, Libby served as director of special projects in the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs.[3] Although in 1985 "he left the government to enter private legal practice.... By 1989 he was working again for Wolfowitz, this time at the Pentagon, as principal deputy under-secretary of defense for strategy and resources....For his government service [in 1993] Libby was awarded the Department of Defense Distinguished Service Award and the Department of the Navy Distinguished Public Service Award. He also received the Department of State’s Foreign Affairs Award for Public Service [1985]."[9][3] During the George H. W. Bush administration, Libby was also confirmed by the U.S. Senate as deputy under secretary of defense for policy.[3] According to Curtiss, "When the Democrats took over in 1992, Libby crossed the Potomac to serve as legal adviser for the House Select Committee on U.S. National Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with the People’s Republic of China."[9] Libby co-authored the draft of the "Defense Planning Guidance for the 1994-99 fiscal years" (dated February 18, 1992) with Wolfowitz for then-Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney.

According to Stephen Smith, in the previously-cited CBS News report of October 28, 2005, "Along with Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, and Wolfowitz, Libby became part of a network of neo-conservatives who many know as the 'Vulcans' – Mr. Bush's core national security team."[7] In 1997 Libby became a founding member of the Project for the New American Century, and, while he was still a partner at Dechert Price, and Rhoads, he joined Wolfowitz, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, and others in writing its 2000 report entitled, "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century".[11][9][12] CBS News is the news division of American television and radio network CBS.

After becoming Vice President Cheney's chief of staff in 2001, Libby was reportedly nicknamed "Germ Boy" at the White House, for insisting on universal smallpox vaccination.[13] His "constant presence behind the scenes in the Bush administration" reportedly also led to his nickname "Dick Cheney's Dick Cheney": "'He is to the vice president what the vice president is to the president,' said Mary Matalin, who worked with Libby as an adviser to Cheney during Bush's first term....Speaking before the indictments, she described Libby as a deep thinker and problem-solver who gives 'discreet advice.'"[7][12] The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) is an American political neo-conservative think tank, based in Washington, DC co-founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan. ...

In 1996 Libby published a novel entitled The Apprentice, about a group of travelers stranded in northern Japan in the winter of 1903 during a herpes epidemic.[14] After Libby's grand jury indictment, his publisher (St. Martin's Press [Griffin]) reprinted the novel, described as "an everyday tale of bestiality and paedophilia in 1903 Japan...[and] packed with sexual perversion, dwelling on prepubescent girls and their training as prostitutes": "One passage describes a girl being thrown into a cage 'with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons....They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.

Before that, Miller was jailed on July 7, 2005, for contempt of court after refusing to testify to the grand jury about this meeting despite a signed blanket waiver from Libby allowing journalists to discuss their conversations. Miller has argued that Libby's waiver to all journalists could have been coerced and that she would only testify if given an individual waiver, which Miller received after serving most of her sentence. The waiver was offered "voluntarily and personally" by Libby, accompanied by a letter which has been the subject of much speculation: July 7 is the 188th day of the year (189th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 177 days remaining. ... 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Until then, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

After agreeing to testify, Miller was released on September 29, 2005. She appeared before the grand jury the next day, on September 30, 2005, but was not relieved of contempt until she testified again on 12 October 2005. For her second grand jury appearance, Miller produced a notebook from a previously-undisclosed meeting with Libby on 23 June 2003, several weeks before Wilson's New York Times editorial was published. According to Miller's notes from that earlier meeting, Libby disclosed that Joseph Wilson's wife was a CIA employee involved in her husband's trip to Niger.

Libby told investigators that he first heard of Plame's CIA employment from journalist Tim Russert and that he had forgotten that Vice President Dick Cheney had already told him that information.[23] The indictments charge that all of these alleged statements of Libby's were false, in that Libby had numerous conversations about Plame's CIA employment before speaking to Russert; Russert did not tell Libby about Plame's CIA employment; Libby knew for a certainty that Plame was employed by the CIA; and Libby told reporters that Plame worked for the CIA without any disclaimer that he did not know whether this was true or not.[24] The "false statements" charges in the Libby indictment stem from its allegation that he made these claims to the FBI; the "perjury" charges, from the allegation that he repeated these claims to the grand jury; and the "obstruction" charge, from the allegation that Libby made these statements in an effort to prevent Fitzgerald's grand jury investigation from uncovering the truth.[4] Tim Russert Timothy John Russert, Jr. ...

Libby retains attorney Ted Wells of the firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to represent him in the case.

A legal motion is a procedural device in law to bring a limited but contested matter before a court for decision. ...


The jury received the case for their deliberation on 21 February 2007.


The jury rendered its verdict on March 6, 2007, finding Libby guilty on four of the five counts against him. He was convicted on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, but found not guilty on the third count, making false statements. The convictions could result in jail time of up to 25 years and a fine of up to 1 million dollars when Libby is sentenced.
