A federal judge said Thursday he will not delay a 2 1/2-year prison sentence for I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby in the CIA leak case, a ruling that could send the former White House aide to prison within weeks.
Good. Have fun in the big house, Scooter!
No date was set for Libby to report to prison but it’s expected to be within six to eight weeks. That will be left up to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, which will also select a facility.
No word on whether Scooter will be given credit for “time served” during those six to eight weeks, even though he’ll be trapped in the prison of his own mind, desperately wondering when and to what federal country club he’ll be sent. Boo hoo.
