Joe Wilson: 'Did he do this so that Libby would
David Edwards and Muriel Kane
July 3, 2007
CNN interviewed Ambassador Joseph Wilson, husband of outed
CIA agent Valerie Plame, about the commutation of "Scooter" Libby's sentence
soon after it was announced on Monday. "There's very little that surprises me
from this administration any more," said Wilson. "I think it's corrupt from top
"I don't give really a darn whether Scooter Libby goes to
jail or not," he continued. "What I care about is that the rule of law and the
system of justice that has undergirded our democracy for 220 years is upheld.
And that is what has been subverted by the president's actions today. ... By
commuting the sentence, I think the president raises the very real suspicion
that he is party to the obstruction of justice or the coverup of the original
crime. ... I think the public has a right to know whether there was a quid pro
quo in this. Did he do this so that Libby would shut up?"
