Well, well. Apparently this isn't Scooter's first dalliance with the presidential pardon process:

Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff testified Thursday he believes prosecutors of billionaire financier Marc Rich "misconstrued the facts and the law" when they went after Rich on tax evasion charges.

The testimony from Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who represented Rich dating back to 1985 but stopped working for him in the spring of 2000, came during a contentious, hours-long House committee hearing into former President Bill Clinton's eleventh-hour pardons.

(Libby was Rich's lawyer. Nice. One to keep in mind when the GOP faithful starts spooling up their "Clinton did it! Clinton did it!" loops yet again.)

Sounds like Rich should have had a better lawyer. Thankfully Bill Clinton righted this judicial wrong involving inadequate representation!
