President Trump will reportedly pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff of Vice President Dick Cheney who was convicted of lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice, according to ABC News. Trump has reportedly “signed off”on the pardon and has been considering it for months. Libby was convicted in 2007 during the investigation into the leak of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity and was sentenced to 30 months in prison. He claims he “forgot” that Cheney told him Plame’s identity a month before he originally said he had found out. President George W. Bush commuted his sentence, sparing him jail time, but did not pardon him.
