Yes, that’s right: Still no verdict.
Jurors in the perjury trial of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby indicated yesterday they remain focused on whether Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff lied to the FBI about a July 12, 2003, conversation with Matthew Cooper, then a reporter for Time magazine.
In a note to the presiding judge late yesterday afternoon, jurors asked three questions about how they should decide whether Libby is guilty of making a false statement to investigators about his conversation with Cooper.
After sending the note, the jury concluded its ninth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict. During that time, it has sent U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton five questions about Libby’s statements to the FBI regarding his conversation with Cooper.
