In a letter sent today, House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers and Constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties subcommittee chairman Jerrold Nadler “strongly urge” Vice President Dick Cheney to recuse himself from any discussions of a pardon for Scooter Libby.
Conyers and Nadler say Cheney’s comments about Libby’s sentence — he said this week that he hopes “our system” will “return a final result consistent with what we know of this fine man” — suggest that he’s blurring the line between his professional duties and his personal interests, especially in light of the fact that the investigation Libby obstructed involved the actions of the vice president himself.
“As the federal prosecutor stated in his closing arguments, the evidence at trial revealed that there was ‘a cloud’ over certain aspects of your conduct,” Conyers and Nadler write.
The congressmen tell Cheney that it would be “deeply divisive, and invite deep cynicism and disrespect for the legal process,” if Americans were to conclude that Libby “undertook actions that subjected him to criminal liability to protect you, knowing or believing, or having the facts ultimately reveal, that you would thereafter take steps to protect him from the consequences of his criminal conduct.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
