President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who was convicted in 2007 of obstructing justice and committing perjury while serving as chief of staff to then-Vice President Dick Cheney. Then-President George W. Bush commuted Libby's 30-month prison sentence, which was connected to the leak of CIA employee Valerie Plame's identity, but Libby paid $250,000 in fines, performed community service and completed probation.
