Now, One of the Most Predictable Stories Ever

From Yahoo:

"WASHINGTON – Vice President Dick Cheney told the FBI he had no idea who leaked to the news media that Valerie Plame, wife of a Bush administration critic, worked for the CIA.

Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was convicted of perjury, obstruction and lying to the FBI in the probe of who leaked Plame's identity to the news media.

Cheney's denials that he talked about Plame are among the few things in the lengthy interview with the FBI that Cheney appeared certain about.

Evidence at Libby's criminal trial showed that Cheney had told Libby about Wilson's wife in mid-June 2003.

The vice president advised the agents that he had no idea what Libby knew on the days before Plame's CIA identity was publicly revealed."

I.e. he lied without a shred of compunction to agents investigating an act of treason.

I wonder if Republicans (and Joe Lieberman) will show as much outrage about this as when Bill Clinton supposedly lied about his blow job?

I think the word "supposedly" is used incorrectly. There is no doubt at all that Clinton lied about both the blow job and his relationship with a 21 year old intern.
