March 7, 2007: Former DOJ Prosecutor: Libby’s Prosecution and Conviction ‘Astounding’

Speaking of the conviction of former White House official Lewis Libby (see March 6, 2007), former Justice Department prosecutor Guy Singer says: “A conviction at that high level within the White House is almost unheard of in our history. It is exceedingly rare that a prosecution is initiated, let alone concluded, at this level. For such a high-ranking member to be convicted of obstructing justice is really astounding.” [Los Angeles Times, 3/7/2007]
