The president signed off on clemency for Scooter Libby on Friday, following months of consideration.
I Lewis Libby, who goes by Scooter, was Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff. Rather, it's been mostly about alleged false statements, just as it was with Libby. Libby, who served as Cheney's chief of staff, was convicted in 2007 of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to FBI investigators. "President Trump recognized this wrong and wold not let it persist".
Excerpts of Comey's new book due out Tuesday, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", slam Trump, calling him "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".
It turns out, moreover, that Mr. Cheney was wrongly convicted. She and her husband had been in talks to represent Trump in the Russian Federation investigation. "I don't know Mr. Libby", Trump said, "but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly".
Above all, Mr. Trump pardoned an innocent man. At a press conference after Libby's conviction, Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor whom his friend, then Deputy Attorney General James Comey, had appointed, called my testimony crucial to the verdict.
President Trump hadnt even issued his pardon of I. Lewis Scooter Libby when the Democratic Party foghorns started suggesting he was doing it for reasons they see as nefarious.

Late Ronaldo penalty puts Madrid into CL semifinals
The goals cancelled out Real's resounding 3-0 win in Turin a week earlier but Lucas Vazquez won a disputed injury-time penalty. The penalty came as Vazquez was in position to score in front of the goal after Ronaldo headed down a cross into the area.
Wilson said the presidential pardon signals that "you can get away with anything".
"One thing has nothing to do with the other", she said.
Plame appeared on MSNBC Friday morning and said a pardon would send a message "that you can commit crimes against national security and you will be pardoned".
Conservatives have rallied around Libby's case, arguing he was the victim of an overly zealous and politically motivated prosecution by a special counsel.
Finally, neither Mr. Trump nor his thoroughly outmatched legal team knows the full exposure he or potential witnesses face.
Arpaio was found in contempt of court for defying a federal judge's order to stop detaining people simply because he suspected them for being undocumented immigrants. The plans were first reported by ABC News. The CIA requested a Department of Justice investigation into the naming of Plame as an agent - a breach of classified information. While Libby was never charged with leaking Plame's name, he was convicted of lying to the FBI and a grand jury and of obstructing justice in the investigation. Libby had pleaded not guilty to all charges.
