now, this is hardball!
and this is the way we do it, downtown. . .
here, senator chcuck schumer suggests that
there was a darker purpose behind choosing
commutation over outright pardon. . .
he also suggests that he and senator leahy
may yet call patrick fitzgerald to talk about
the cloud over the vice president -- to
essentially restate his closing summation
from the libby criminal trial, before a
senate judiciary committee (read: televised!)
hearing, in the near future. . . YES!
do watch it -- it is only 1:48 long. . .
[h/t to FDL, for alerting me to
schumer's statments, on video. . .]
more to come, later this afternoon. . .
