Supreme Court Ends Plame Case Against Cheney, Libby, Bush Officials
FoxNews ^ | 6/22/09 | Lee Ross

Posted on 06/22/2009 7:40:08 AM PDT by anniegetyourgun

The Supreme Court announced Monday it will not give further consideration to a lawsuit brought by a fired CIA agent and her husband against high ranking Bush administration officials, including former Vice President Dick Cheney.

The decision is a victory for Cheney and his former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove, and former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage. They and nine unnamed co-defendants were sued by Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband Joseph after her CIA cover was leaked to reporters.

Couldn’t find any evidence that she was a covert agent?

Monday's ruling by the Supreme Court, made as usual without comment, leaves the lower court rulings in place.

And 'without comment' is likely the way the MSM will cover the decision. I sure hope Libby writes a book.

Now they should sue Plame! And Powell! However I doubt they will, the expense and stress of this crap all these years has probably worn them down to the point that they just want to be let alone to enjoy what's left of their lives.

To illustrate the absurdity of Valerie’s claim; she and her husband were listed in Who’s Who, including their jobs, home address, etc.

Good screw her and her lying husband. The two of them were in it together and obviously violated their duties to the CIA in order to press their left wing agenda.

I notice they haven’t gotten jobs from Obama either. At least not yet. You would never want them working for you they are scum.

Nope. "Freudenschade" was a term used by a DUmmie at Democratic Underground a couple years ago when William Rivers Pitt wrote that Karl Rove would be indicted within 24 hours. I picked it up on a thread by PJ-Comix about that DU thread, and it's been used ever since. In fact I created this graphic (below) at the time...

So when is the Government going to sue Plame for return of her government pay earned while running a DNC campaign office from the CIA?

Actually she had been, long long ago - IIRC she was one of the many outed by Aldrich Ames, who is still stealing oxygen.

Now Plame will write a book, do the talk show circuit, tell a bunch of crap, and Cheney and Libby will still be convicted in the court of public opinion. /shakeshead

I’m glad there is finally closure and that all three courts slapped Plame down. I really hope they spent a bunch of money in the process.

Why Andy McCarthy defends Fitzgerald is a mystery to me. Fitz was out to get the Bush administration and this Plame debacle was the bizarre way that he chose to do it. Fitzgerald seems to be doing his best to hide any and all incriminating stuff against Obama from Chicago as well. He is a man with a plan...and it is more Obamana than Panama.

Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband Joseph after her CIA cover was leaked to reporters.

Valerie's cover story was that she was an analyst for the CIA
working at the Langley Virgina CIA Headquarters.

Yes, exactly. That was my first thought. By refusing to hear the case, rather than reversing the lower court decisions, SCOTUS has effectively left that crook Fitz's work in place. So, Plame doesn't get her money, but Scooter was still found guilty by a kangaroo court, a crooked judge, and an admittedly biased jury, and only partly relieved by Bush.

So, it's not a further victory for Plame and her fellow liars, but it's not a defeat for the propagandists who are using her. And Cheney is still the goat, even though he was never even brought to trial.

She leaked her covert status to her future husband on their third date.

Wonder how many other boyfriends she told she was an undercover spy.

Fitzgerald had “issues” with Scooter Libby over the Marc Rich pardon. Libby was Rich’s lawyer and Fitzgerald was mightily steamed when Clinton pardoned him.

Although Fitzgerald is a Democrat, he was nominated by Peter Fitzgerald (a conservative/libertarian) US Senator from Illinois because of his generally non-partisan behavior. My best guess is that Fitz suffers from overzealous prosecution complex (i.e., wanting to justify his position) rather than raw partisanship.

For the sake of further irony, guess who took Peter Fitzgerald’s Senate seat after he declined to run again. Yup, it was The Won.

This was always political manipulation of the courts by the Democrats for the purpose of electing a Demorat as president in 2008. The case should have been dismissed as such years ago.

Slandered the 3 and possibly the other 9, my thoughts exactly.

Who has had their earnings damaged by Plame and hubby?

Paybacks are hell.
