Bush spares Libby from jail term


news.bbc.co.uk

US President George W Bush has intervened to prevent Lewis Libby, a convicted former vice-presidential aide, from serving a prison term.

President Bush described as "excessive" the 30-month sentence Libby was facing for obstructing an inquiry into the leaking of a CIA agent's name.

Though no longer required to go to jail, Libby is still due to serve a period of probation and pay a fine.

Mr. Bush has been known to use his ability to override the countries will for some time. However, overriding a court ruling of this magnitude is a certainly new trick for him.

I'm not sure this will sit right with even many Republicans. It certainly won't be improving the Democratic view of him.
