That's the best I could find. Federal sentences for perjury, contempt, and intimidation median sentence was 24 months.

Scooters was above that by 6 months.

BVS, it was dialog from CNN. Newsbusters had the transcript. Are you ok with Dershowitz talking on CNN as a source for Dershowitz?

Does that mean he should serve no time at all?

Plenty of folks have connected Libby with spilling the beans on Plame. Why else would Plame's husband be a featured guest on the cable outlets last night? It wasn't Libby, it was Armitage, that's why his name was brought up.

As far as Clinton goes, I didn't post the long list of his pardons. He was the president, it was within his authority.

So he was only 6 months longer than the MEDIAN? Oh Noes! How harsh...:|

Columnists don't write the law. The law calls for prison terms, as Anitram said.
And judges impose sentences within the parameter of the law with some leeway.

And president's pardon and commute sentences.

It still doesn't mean he shouldn't serve jail time!

And don't forget how high the stakes were in this case.

There's also first time offenders paying the max, especially in drug offenses. Be consistent about perjury, that's all I ask, so far I see none of you doing that.

Dershowitz? Fair enough. But he's defended his share of perjurors.

Should he serve no time at all because he got six months more than the norm?

Shouldn't it matter that what he's dealing with affects a lot of people? He works in the government.

I still don't understand. It was from a CNN live show, with the transcript posted. I still don't understand your issue. Are you saying it's likely newsbusters blogger is posting doctored or false CNN transcripts?

I'll try and dig up the transcript on CNN.

MadelynIris 07-03-2007 04:27 PM

on a side note, can anyone tell me why my images aren't working?

Why don't you drop it, I never said anything about newsbuster in relation to this paticular story, just the website in general. It's hilarious.
