Dick Cheney in Chicago dings Patrick Fitzgerald for prosecuting Libby

| No Comments

Former Vice President Cheney was in Chicago Monday with daughter Liz to promote his new book--and deliver a slap to the Chicago based U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who prosecuted Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Read the story by Chicago Sun-Times political writer Abdon M. Pallasch HERE.

Fitzgerald convicted Cheney's chief of staff for perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI "in the Fitzgerald-led investigation into who leaked to the news media that Valerie Plame, wife of a Bush critic, worked for the CIA," Pallasch wrote.

The late Chicago Sun-Times columnist Robert Novak was the first to report about Valerie Plame working for the CIA.
