Executive Privilege

The President apparently has invoked "executive privilege" to keep the Vice President's interview with FBI investigators shielded from public view. The interview was about his role in the leak of former undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame. The Vice President's former aide Scooter Libby was found guilty of 4 felonies. Bush commuted his sentence, somehow better than a pardon, though the 4 felonies remain. It was better because by commuting the sentence Scooter Libby was not allowed to testify before Congress so his secrets remained just that.

I'm listening to Donald Trump being interviewed by Howard Stern and they are talking about how Bush lied us into war. Stern just asked him:

"Would you put Osama bin Laden on The Apprentice?"
"Would you put Hitler on the show?"

Now they're talking about Paul McCartney's pre-nuptial that fell apart.

You see how easy it is to get sidetracked.
