President Trump pardons former Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff.
The president signed off on clemency for Scooter Libby on Friday, following months of consideration. This comes 11 years after Libby was found guilty of obstructing justice and lying to the FBI during an investigation into who revealed the identity of a former CIA agent.
Libby’s 30 month prison sentence was commuted by then-President George W. Bush, but he did not pardon him.
