Campaign for America's Future:

Several politicians are booked to discuss the virtual pardon of Scooter Libby: Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on CBS' Face The Nation; Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. on ABC's This Week and Reps. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., and Chris Cannon, R-Utah on Fox News Sunday.

The critical question for all of them is:

Does the commutation of Scooter Libby's jail sentence amount to obstruction of justice on the part of President Bush?

Several have directly accused Bush of obstruction of justice, including Ambassador Joe Wilson, blogger-journalists Marcy Wheeler and Josh Marshall, and our own Rick Perlstein. Also, Washingtonpost.com's Dan Froomkin noted that our Founders did not believe the pardon power included the power for the president to "stop inquiry and prevent detection" of crimes associated with himself.

More questions on the CfAF site as well as links to give feedback to the Sunday bobblehead shows. Bill Scher will be on Sam Seder's AAR show to discuss.  You can stream Sam's show here.
