Political Trial Manages Conviction

Libby trial produces interesting feedback...
View: VIDEO: Juror convicts, yet prefers a pardon.
Ann Coulter's : Shooting Elephants in a Barrel

Ask anyone who has been handed down a conviction as a result of a "hauntingly driven" Political trial... Your life is hell, fate uncertain, & at the mercy of whatever suits the agenda of the witch hunt... You're out!

A sad and tragic end to a long and distinguished career, and profound dedication as a public servant of our country? Or just a trial which deviated away from principal, amidst the many witnesses who lied under oath, yet still managed a felony conviction... Without an illegal action!

Most troubling, was a Juror's conviction vote, which (after-the-fact) preferred a Libby pardon! This would have been the one circumstance, by which a nullification would have been appropriate; and the power to 'fail to convict' a right, responsibility, and option of all jurors...

Interesting quick facts from my Liberty Friends:
The first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, instructed jurors in the 1794 case of Georgia v. Brailsford:
"You have, nevertheless, a right to take upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the law as well as the fact in controversy."
And the 1972 DC Court of Appeals, U.S. v. Dougherty observed that:
"The pages of history shine on instances of the jury's exercise of its prerogative to disregard uncontradicted evidence and instructions from the judge. Most often commended are the 18th century acquittal of John Peter Zenger of seditious libel "the case that gave Americans our freedom of the press" and the 19th century acquittals in prosecutions under fugitive slave laws."

Miller on Libby, Cheney, Pelosi,
Coulter, and Maher … Oh my!
The Captain posts this, from the juror:
Libby Juror: Please Reverse Us
“I would like him to get” a pardon from Bush, Redington said. “It kind of bothers me that there was this whole big crime being investigated and he got caught up in the investigation as opposed to in the actual crime that was supposedly committed.”...

It's sad enough that the juror voted for conviction and now says - oops. But then to continue under the notion that a crime was even committed has my eyes nearly rolling out of my head.

Often frivolity of this sort comes forth when innocent will not do…
(Especially when 'any' guilty charge will)... Now they've a 'win-win' situation. A hope to discredit the REP party; or carry it over beyond the elections…
