Good. That case was an abortion of justice. It gave us the precedent that a man can be prosecuted, and imprisoned for a long time because of a supposed inconsistency of testimony in a case where it is admitted that there was no crime or victim.
AKA Multiple witnesses in the Grand Jury said Scooter Libby intentionally exposed an undercover CIA Agent as payback for providing intelligence that disputed the false claim being sold by Cheney of Iraq having an active WMD program.
Trump just pardoned one of the team that led us into the Iraq war on false premises and who nearly cost an undercover CIA Operatives life to do so.

Observers see it as a call to folks that might cooperate with Mueller that Trump will save them if they get caught lying.

Aside from the fact that libby was not the leaker, libby paid a large fine and did real jail time.
So trump pardoned someone who the fbi prosecuted for lying to them.
Think the fbi will prosecute ALL who lie to them?
