Washington-Insider, CFR-member Fred Thompson backed CFR-member Scooter Libby pardon

Bush Commutes Libby's Prison Sentence
Tuesday, July 3, 2007; A01

President Bush commuted the sentence of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby yesterday, sparing Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff 2 1/2 years in prison after a federal appeals court had refused to let Libby remain free while he appeals his conviction for lying to federal investigators.

Former senator Fred D. Thompson (Tenn.), an unannounced presidential candidate who has helped lead Libby's defense fund and called for Bush to pardon Libby, said: "This will allow a good American who has done a lot for his country to resume his life."

Fred Thompson calls for Libby pardon
In an interview ... on Fox's Hannity & Colmes, potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson launched into a passionate defense of Scooter Libby. [broadcast on June 5, 2007]
THOMPSON: "... I didn't know Scooter, but I called him up when I saw what was happening. And I said, "I'll help you if you need help," a long time before I thought about presidential politics.

HANNITY: I only have a second in this segment. If you were president, would you pardon him? And do you think the president would pardon him? And would you pardon him now?

THOMPSON: I would, absolutely.

Fred Thompson Thrived as Lobbyist
Monday, June 25, 2007

Republican Fred Thompson, who likes to cast himself in the role of Washington outsider, has a long history as a political insider who earned more than $1 million lobbying the federal government.

As a lobbyist for more than 20 years, billion-dollar corporations paid Thompson for his access to members of Congress and White House staff. During that time he was close to two Senate majority leaders, both from his home state of Tennessee - his political mentor Howard Baker and, more recently, his former colleague Bill Frist.

[ CCL Note: Both Howard Baker and Bill Frist are also CFR members. ]

Thompson also helped run the Scooter Libby Legal Defense Fund Trust, an organization that set out to raise more than $5 million to help finance the legal defense of Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, who was convicted in March of lying and obstructing Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the leak of a CIA operative's identity.

"This is no political outsider," said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for government ethics and campaign finance reform with Public Citizen. "He clearly gained a network of contacts in Congress though Howard Baker that he cashed in on and would represent anyone who would pay him."

Clinton sees differences between Libby, husband's pardons
July 3, 2007
KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) ¬ Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton
drew a distinction between President Bush's decision to commute the sentence
of White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby ¬ which she has harshly criticized ¬
and her husband's 140 pardons in his closing hours in office.

"This particular action by the president is one more piece of evidence in their ongoing disregard
for the rule of law that they think they don't have to answer to," she said.
