"But it's been a tough issue for a lot of people in the White House and it's run its course and now we're going to move on", Bush said in 2007.
President Donald Trump plans to pardon I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby - the onetime chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney during the Bush administration, reports said Friday.
Trump released a statement through the White House that he did not personally know Libby but that the man had been treated unfairly.
The White House announced Friday afternoon that Trump had pardoned Libby, Cheney's former chief of staff who was convicted of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2007.
"I am grateful to day that President Trump righted that incorrect by issuing Scooter, & rdquo with the pardon". Late Thursday, the Associated Press had published a primer that revealed just how caustic the book's criticism of the president would be, relaying Comey's assessment that Trump was unethical and "untethered to truth".
It turns out, moreover, that Mr. Cheney was wrongly convicted.

Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson called Trump a "vile and despicable individual."
Trump said he pardoned Libby, whom he doesn't know, because "he has been treated unfairly"-a claim Plame shredded as completely false". Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican and daughter of the former vice president, said Libby was the victim of a "miscarriage of justice", and she thanked Trump for "righting a awful wrong". Another twist is that the special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald, was appointed by James Comey, deputy attorney general at the time.
Trump said, "Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of [Libby's] life". Trump pardoned Scooter Libby on Friday. He added that Mr Trump "recognised this wrong and would not let it persist". As Arthur Herman wrote in Commentary, an overzealous special prosecutor framed Libby, a dedicated public servant (and a friend of this writer).
Plame spoke to MSNBC Friday.
So when the ambassador, Joe Wilson, started to hear that erroneous claim being used to justify going to war with Saddam, he made a decision to speak out in an op-ed in the New York Times. In addition to racial profiling, Arpaio was long criticized for what many in the community decried as inhumane prisons in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. The CIA requested a Department of Justice investigation into the naming of Plame as an agent - a breach of classified information. Nor would he say why he pursued Libby after learning early on that the source of the leak was not Libby, but Richard Armitage, an aide to Secretary of State Colin Powell, who had argued against the war.
