Fred Barnes Lobbies for Libby Pardon

Reported by Janie - March 8, 2007 -

Shortly after the guilty verdict came in from the Scooter Libby tiral, "All Star Panelist" and Special Report regular, Fred Barnes spent a portion of Tuesday night's show lobbying for the pardon of Libby.

During the "All Star Panel", Barnes claimed “he [Libby] didn’t really seriously impede the investigation,” and “he’s been a loyal and effective member of this administration.” (ThinkProgress has the video.)

In fact, Libby was found guilty on the "obstruction of justice" charge, which denotes that he did actually "impede the investigation." What being a loyal and effective member of the administration has to do with lying, is beyond any reasoning person's comprehension.

Barnes, as usual, was aiding and abetting the administration by attempting to divert attention from the leak of Valerie Plame's name and the administration's involvement.
