Libby Trial: No Shooter, No Scooter Testimony

Not a huge surprise. Can you imagine Cheney having to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Marcy (emptywheel) at FireD

Not a huge surprise. Can you imagine Cheney having to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Marcy (emptywheel) at FireDogLake liveblogging from the Libby Trial:

There's a rumored snowstorm hitting DC, so much of the Federal government is shutting down. Apparently, they're going to let the jury go home. But we're going to stay here and let Wells and Fitz wrestle out the CIA briefer testimony.

Walton: I wanted to get the jury out of here, the Federal government has shut down. Then we can go over any legal issues so we don't have any delays tomorrow. I assume that we're not going to need the jury on Thursday.

Wells: Prior to lunch I indicated to the court that I would be making recommendations to Libby (with regards to) the progress of his case. Over the lunch hour Mr Jeffress and I advised Cheney's lawyer. If we had called he would have been available on Thursday. We have released the VP as a witness. Jeffress and I recommended to Libby that subject to putting on the briefers and some documentary evidence, he should rest following that. After consulting with us and his wife, he indicated he would follow this advice.
