The House Judiciary Committee plans to hold hearings next Wednesday on President Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison term. Don’t expect anyone from the administration to be there to discuss the decision. Instead, I imagine, we’ll be treated to the testimony of liberal law professors auditioning for bigger and better roles. Specifically, we likely will hear from “scholars” who found nothing wrong with Clinton’s pardon of Marc Rich and other contributors to Clintonite causes, and who thought Clinton’s perjury didn’t matter because it was “about sex.” They will present freshly spun theories as to why commuting the sentence of an executive branch member in a perjury case undermines the American justice system.
