Scooter Libby is not off the hook yet.

Let's not forget the Wilson's ongoing civil suit against Libby, Vice President Cheney, and presidential advisor Karl Rove and 10 unnamed defendants. Melanie Sloan of the the watch-dog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) serves as legal counsel for the couple.

From the lawsuit:
On April 26, 1999, at the dedication of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) facility named for him, former President George H. W. Bush said: "We need more protection for the methods we use to gather intelligence and more protection for our sources, particularly our human sources, people that are risking their lives for their country....I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors." George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, Remarks at the Dedication Ceremony for the George Bush Center for Intelligence (Apr. 26, 1999).

You should have told that to your kid, Poppy!

Here is the complete text of the lawsuit. (4M PDF)

So folks, buck up. The fun ain't over yet. Could there be further chances of perjury charges? Don't know, I ain't a lawyer. This will be interesting regardless.

Scooter has two things of value that keep him out of jail:
1) Cheney's secrets.
2) A dead man switch. If Scooter disappears or meets an untimely demise, his memoirs will hit the street the following day.

Listen to Olbermann's rant then ask yourself what was behind door #2 to cause Bush to choose this course of action.

If Scooter had gone to jail, he'd have squealed.
