  •  And whose chief of staff committed perjury? (0+ / 0-)

    And is now disbarred.

    We're talking about Cheney's former Chief of Staff, of course. Second rate for sure.  

    And I didn't realize until just now that his legal career had troubles before the Plame matter.

    Bar suspension and disbarment

    Before his indictment in United States v. Libby, Libby had been a licensed corporate lawyer, admitted to the bars of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, although his Pennsylvania law license was inactive, and he had already been suspended from the Washington, D.C. Office of Bar Counsel (D.C. Bar) for non-payment of fees.

    The Chief Judge of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals recommended permanent disbarment upon confirmation of his conviction, which Libby had initially indicated that he would appeal.

    On March 20, 2008, following the dropping of his appeal of his conviction, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals disbarred Libby.
