Run, Libby, Run


Hurry, hurry! You don’t have much time to check out Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald‘s response to Scooter Libby‘s plea to stay out of jail pending appeal.

Fitzgerald’s brief isn’t; it’s 43 pages. But it does have a note of compassion. Well, just a footnote of compassion, anyway. At the bottom of the second page:

The government does not contend that defendant poses a risk of flight or danger to the
community, or that defendant’s appeal is frivolous, or brought solely for purposes of delay.

Too bad. Wouldn’t it be better if Libby did flee D.C.?
