Libby Denied Access To CIA Leak Data, Federal Judge Does Not Want Case To Become An Iraq War Debate - CBS News

Libby Denied Access To CIA Leak Data, Federal Judge Does Not Want Case To Become An Iraq War Debate - CBS News:
(AP) A federal judge refused on Friday to give I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby access to a wide range of information from several government agencies, saying he would not allow the former White House aide's trial in the CIA leak case to become a debate over the war in Iraq.

'You want to try the legitimacy of us going to war,' U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton told lawyers for Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff. 'I don't see how that will help us determine whether Mr. Libby lied when he talked to the FBI and went before the grand jury.'
That's right. Save the legitimacy issue for the impeachment hearings. As far as Libby's case is concerned, a lie is a lie, and that's the truth.
