Do you think Lewis "Scooty" Libby was guilty of treason?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Court Said No

    Lewis "Scooter" Libby was found guilty on two counts of perjury, two counts of making false statements to federal investigators, and one count of obstruction of justice. Beyond these charges many think treason should be included but the truth is, is that Libby was part of one of the most corrupt administrations the US has seen and more than likely the truth of that administration will probably no be publicly known.

  • His Superiors Are Guilty

    Lewis "Scooter" Libby was made the scapegoat of the Bush administration for the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame during the Iraq War. Plame's husband was critical of the Bush administration's handling of the war. In retaliation, his wife was outed as a CIA agent. Libby was made the scapegoat for his boss's incompetence.

  • Does not fit

    Treason involves aiding an enemy in order to levy war against the US, and, regardless of what people think about Scooter Libby, or what people think he was supposed to have done, he definitely did not commit acts of war against the US government due to his involvement in the Plame affair.

  • He was not

    No, he was not guilty of treason. He was simply blamed for an event that happened. This man was not trying to damage any part of our government system, which is what i would define treason as. This man did not want the hurt our country in any way at all.

  • He was a scape goat.

    No, I do not think that Libby was guilty of treason, because he was the fall guy in a scheme of political persecution. There was no evidence that Libby did anything worse than anyone else. He was a politician that was serving his own interests, just like every other politician. But that doesn't equal treason.
