He's being indicted for giving inconsistent testimony to the grand jury.

I'll admit it, I haven't followed the recent news on this so what exactly was he giving false testimony about?
The indictment accuses Libby of lying to a grand jury about how and when he learned about Plame's identity in 2003 and then told reporters about it. The information was classified. It does not charge Libby with actually leaking the information. If convicted on all five counts, Libby could face up to 30 years in prison and $1.25 million in fines.
He said the investigation was largely completed, but added: "We're not quite done." ...However, he cautioned reporters not to jump to conclusions and noted the grand jury's term had come to an end.
