       [T]he chief if reluctant prosecution witness against Mr. Libby, journalist Judith Miller, says she now believes her testimony at trial was wrong. .  . .  It is never too late to correct an unjust conviction, and Mr. Libby deserves to have his reputation restored.”  The Wall Street Journal, Editorial, “The Libby Injustice,” April 6, 2015

       “I gave honest testimony, but it was wrong.  . . .: I do think I was a part of unfair treatment to Mr.Libby. . . .” Judith Miller, Fox and Friends, April  2015

       “Journalist Judith Miller’s new memoir, “The Story: A Reporter’s Journey,” exposes unscrupulous conduct by Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald in the 2007 trial of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.  Peter Berkowitz, “The False Evidence Against Scooter Libby,” The Wall St Journal, April 6, 2015

       [S]pecial prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald rigged the 2007 perjury trial…. Fitzgerald constructed a web of lies out of Miller’s testimony in the Libby trial in order to get a conviction, by withholding exculpatory evidence from her and from Libby’s lawyers.”  Arthur Herman, “How the obsessive, dishonest prosecution of Scooter Libby almost cost us Iraq,” Fox News, April 8, 2015

       As a result of Fitzgerald withholding evidence, [Miller] inadvertently helped convict an innocent man. . . .  It is undisputed [Fitzgerald’s] methods were neither professional nor legally sound.” Victoria Toensing, "Libby Trial Shows Dangers of Political Prosecutions," The Hill, April 15, 2015

Prosecution witness Judith Miller recently revealed that she testified falsely in the 2007 perjury trial of Scooter Libby.  Worse yet, she reveals that her false testimony stemmed from “unscrupulous conduct” by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.   Miller laments her role in convicting Libby, an innocent man.

Miller’s courageous new memoir, The Story, opens a new chapter in efforts to exonerate Lewis Libby for non-criminal conduct in a case that should never have been brought.  She reveals that all Libby did in 2003 was rebut false charges against the Bush Administration.  But despite Scooter’s fully appropriate conduct, Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald withheld exculpatory evidence to falsely incriminate Libby.  Why? Because Fitzgerald’s real target was Libby’s boss, Vice President Dick Cheney.

Libby’s innocence, Fitzgerald’s wrongdoing, and the tragic consequences for America are discussed in articles cited in this website. 

We hope that you will join the effort to spread the word and support Scooter as he battles for justice.  His exoneration is long overdue.

Background on the Lewis Libby Justice Fund

http://www.scooterlibby.com/images/libby_accent4.jpg The Libby Legal Justice Fund was established to help right the record, correct the injustice, and defray the costs for Lewis "Scooter" Libby and his family in confronting the injustice of the false charges brought against him. 

The Lewis Libby Justice Fund is the successor fund to the excellent work done by its predecessor, the Libby Legal Defense Trust, and will support efforts that include and extend beyond the legal services and related costs that were the focus of the Trust.

Recent revelations of wrong-doing by the prosecutor and injustice in the case against him open a final phase in Scooter’s efforts to clear his name.  Scooter pled “not guilty” to each and every count in the indictment.  In pleading not guilty, Scooter declared his innocence and his intention to fight the charges and many false claims made against him.  That fight continues.  But this long fight can be very expensive.  And Scooter and his family already have made many sacrifices during Scooter’s ten years of dedicated public service and years of defending against these unjust charges. Now they need our help to win this fight. 

We are confident that at the end of this process, Scooter Libby will be fully exonerated both in the law and in the hearts of our fellow countrymen.  We invite you to join Scooter’s many friends and colleagues in supporting the defense of this good man in clearing his good name.

All money collected will be deposited in the Fund and will be disbursed, over time, for professional services and other efforts and expenses to right the injustice Scooter has suffered.

What You Aren't Hearing About Lewis "Scooter" Libby
