Bush And Cheney Fought Bitterly Over Refusal To Pardon Scooter Libby
George W. Bush revealed that Vice President Dick Cheney was furious with him for not pardoning Cheney aide Scooter Libby.
Bush, in an interview aired Monday on NBC’s “Today” show, said Cheney was angry that Bush only commuted the sentence of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, convicted of lying during the leak investigation.
Bush’s appearance came as he begins promoting his memoir, “Decision Points.” In the book, Bush recounts that a furious Cheney told him: “I can’t believe you’re going to leave a soldier on the battlefield.”
Bush said he worried the incident would fracture his friendship with Cheney. But he said: “I’m pleased to report we are friends today.”Click here for reuse options!
