Nightline, GMA, Today report Thompson's reaction to commutation, but not his ties to Libby defense fund
Tue, Jul 3, 2007


'In reports on President Bush's decision to commute the sentence of former vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, several network news programs have quoted from or cited potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson's statement approving of Bush's decision without noting Thompson's connections to the Libby Legal Defense Trust. Thompson is a member of the trust's "Advisory Committee" and has reportedly held at least one fundraiser to help pay for Libby's legal fees.'

'According to the trust's website, the organization was established "to help defray the legal defense costs for Lewis 'Scooter' Libby and his family against the recent legal charges brought against him." The site urges visitors to "join Scooter's many friends and colleagues in supporting the defense of this good man in clearing his good name." Accordingto a June 25 Associated Press report, Thompson "helped run" the organization, which "set out to raise more than $5 million to help finance" Libby's legal defense. In addition, a July 3 Washington Post article reported that Thompson "held a fundraiser for Libby at his McLean [Virginia] home," according to fellow advisory committee member and former Ambassador Richard Carlson.'

'By contrast, a July 3 article quoting Thompson's press release also noted his position with the defense trust: "Among the first to offer support was former Tennessee senator and possible White House hopeful Fred Thompson, who served on the advisory board of the legal defense fund for Libby, and urged Bush to pardon him. 'I am very happy for Scooter Libby,' Thompson said. 'I know that this is a great relief to him, his wife and children. This will allow a good American, who has done a lot for his country, to resume his life.'"'


"Libby’s friends and supporters have raised more than $5 million to cover legal fees and were continuing to raise money, but Libby paid the $250,000 fine himself, according to a source close to the situation."

Fred Thompson - another CFR-member for president
Should Fred Thompson enter the 2008 presidential race, he would become the fifth member of the globalist, NWO's Council on Foreign Relations to do so, joining fellow CFR-members, US Senator John McCain, (former VA) Gov. Jim Gilmore, (NM) Gov. Bill Richardson, and US Senator Chris Dodd. Furthermore, former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich, also a member of the CFR, is also considering entering the presidential race later this Fall (perhaps if enough conservatives don't take the bait and swallow the lie that globalist, First Amendment free-speech enemy Fred Thompson is a "conservative")
