Libby rolls on Cheney and Chimpy

Scooter Libby, like John Dean before him, has refused to take the bullet for the Preznit. Dean agreed to testify before Sam Ervin's Watergate Committee after HR "Bob" Haldeman and John Erlichman had presumed he would go to jail rather than implicate Tricky Dick Nixon in the Watergate cover-up.

Well, Scooter's taking a page out of Dean's book (and isn't it curious that Dean testified to the Senate just last week that the NSA domestic-spying scandal was "worse than Watergate"?): he's rolled on Cheney, saying

Libby testified that he was reluctant at first to reveal the information, until Cheney assured him that Bush had okayed it.
Prediction: the White House will deny, endeavor to discredit Libby, and, when more information supporting Libby's testimony comes to claim, claim "executive privilege" allows the Preznit to summarily declassify information by fiat, and even to give that fiat to others: that's what Cheney claims.

Bastards seem to have forgotten that Nixon himself got shot down over executive privilege.

This administration is over. It's just a matter of how many more they kill or ruin before they admit it.
