Statement from Lindsey Graham on the Indictment of Scooter Libby

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement. “From this indictment there seems to be no indication there was ever any criminal intent – either individually or as part of a conspiracy -- to publicly expose a CIA operatives identity in violation of federal law. “It was proper for Mr. Libby to resign from his position while charges are pending against him. It is equally proper that politics be parked at the courthouse door so he may receive a fair trial. As the substance of the charges work their way through the court, I believe it is appropriate the Mr. Libby be giving the presumption of innocence like every American.” #####
