The Prosecution Rests Its Case in the Libby Trial

Hosted by  • 

Scooter Libby has watched silently as prosecutor Paterick Fitzgerald has methodically presented a perjury case against him. Now it's Libby's turn to respond—and perhaps Vice President Cheney's. Where does the case stand after three weeks of prosecution testimony? What has Fitzgerald revealed that we didn't already know? What can we expect from the Libby defense? Is this a trial about how America went to war or just a petty grudge match led by a frustrated prosecutor who found himself investigating a crime that was never committed? Guest host Lawrence O'Donnell speaks with journalists and attorneys formerly with Congress and the US Justice Department.
