President Bush: Serious abuse of Power

US President George Bush has commuted the sentence imposed on former Chief of Staff for Dick Cheney.

Scooter Libby was convicted this year and sentenced to 30 months in prison with two years probation.

Bush has now formally commuted the sentence.

At the time of his convction, Juror Denis Collins said -

"said he and fellow jurors found that passing judgement on Libby was 'unpleasant.' But in the final analysis, he said jurors found Libby's story just too hard to believe: 'We're not saying we didn't think Mr. Libby was guilty of the things we found him guilty of, but it seemed like ... he was the fall guy'. Collins said the jury believed Libby was 'tasked by the vice president to go and talk to reporters.

If nothing else, doesn't this indicate Bush and Cheney know they have something to hide? This isn't one for conspiracy theorists, its one for Congress. They should impeach Bush and Cheney now.
