Seems the judge in the LIbby trial is about to be exposed to many of the details reagarding the threats against the US – the same threats that had Scooter Libby’s attention during the Wilson-Plame media lies.
The judge who presided over the trial of vice presidential aide Lewis Libby has been appointed to the secret court that oversees U.S. intelligence wiretaps.
Reggie Walton, a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts effective May 19.
This will make sentencing in the Libby case interesting. I wonder of Fitz-Magoo will ask the judge to recuse himself. I am confident a couple of weeks seeing the possible threats we face on a daily basis will sober up the judge and give him plenty of understanding to Libby’s situation regarding priorities (terrorism vs. Joe Wilson’s lies to the media for the Kerry campaign).
