Perjurers Libby and President Clinton same crime different Verdict!

Scooter Libby is found guilty of the same thing William Jefferson Clinton aka the "First Black President" Lying which is Perjury:
"The willful giving of false testimony under oath or affirmation, before a competent tribunal, upon a point material to a legal inquiry"
The Arkansas Supreme Court's Committee on Professional Conduct initially called for Clinton's disbarment in 2000, saying he lied about his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Slick Willie was asked about Lewinsky during a January 1998 deposition in a sexual harassment suit brought by Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee. His attempt to conceal the affair while under oath led to his 1998 impeachment and 1999 subsequent acquittal by the Senate.
Don" believe me? Here is the Info from noneother than the Clinton News Network
  • from CNN: The committee recommended in May that Clinton's Arkansas law license be withdrawn, in the wake of accusations he gave misleading testimony under oath in the Paula Jones case.
    That deposition, made January 17, 1998, became the basis of an independent counsel investigation, and the president's impeachment.
  • From Cnn
  • The conduct of Mr. Clinton ... was motivated by a desire to protect himself from the embarrassment of his own conduct," the Arkansas State Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct declared in court papers.
  • Clinton has argued that his testimony about his relationship with Lewinsky was "not false as he defines that term."
  • Acquittal at his impeachment trial did not end Clinton's legal problems. In April, Judge Wright held him in civil contempt of court for what she described as his "false, misleading and evasive answers that were designed to obstruct the judicial process" when he testified in the Jones case 15 months earlier; in July the judge assessed penalties of more than $90,000, which Clinton agreed to pay.
  • On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, the president formally acknowledged for the first time that he had knowingly given false testimony before Judge Wright. The admission came as part of a deal under which Clinton also accepted a 5-year suspension of his law license and agreed to pay a $25,000 fine; in exchange, disbarment proceedings against him in Arkansas were dropped, and Robert W. Ray (1960– ), Starr's successor as Whitewater independent counsel, concluded his investigation without taking further legal action against Clinton.
U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright found President Bill Clinton in civil contempt of court Monday for his "willful failure" to obey her repeated orders to testify truthfully in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit.
Wright has referred her ruling to the Arkansas Supreme Court to see if any disciplinary action should be taken, CNN has learned.
"Simply put, the president's deposition testimony regarding whether he had ever been alone with Ms. (Monica) Lewinsky was intentionally false and his statements regarding whether he had ever engaged in sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky likewise were intentionally false," the judge wrote of Clinton's January 17, 1998 deposition.
Wright also ordered Clinton to pay Jones "any reasonable expenses including attorneys' fees caused by his willful failure to obey this court's discovery orders," directing Jones' lawyers to submit an accounting of their expenses and fees within 20 days.
She also ruled Clinton must reimburse to the court $1,202 for the judge's travel expenses. Wright traveled to Washington at Clinton's request to preside over what she now calls "his tainted deposition."
"The court takes no pleasure whatsoever in holding this nation's president in contempt of court," the 32-page opinion read.
Referring to the professional rule that states it is misconduct for a lawyer to engage in conduct involving "dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation," Wright also referred matter to the Arkansas Supreme Court's Committee on Professional Conduct to review Clinton's action and impose any disciplinary action it thinks is appropriate, including possible disbarment as a lawyer.
Wright said she "has concerns about the nature of the president's January 17, 1998, deposition" but "makes no findings at this time regarding whether the president may be in contempt."
In the deposition, Clinton said: "I have never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky." He acknowledged August 17 before a federal grand jury -- and again in a nationally televised address -- that he had an inappropriate relationship with Lewinsky.
However, he has said that the statements he made in the Jones deposition were "legally accurate."
Clinton testified to the grand jury that he might not have been paying attention when his lawyer told the judge about Lewinsky's affidavit in which she said there was no sex of any kind with Clinton.
