President Bush Disregarded the Rule of Law (Rep. Diana DeGette)

I am outraged by President Bush's decision to commute Scooter Libby's sentence.

President Bush has shown his blatant disregard for the rule of law that our country's entire judicial system was founded on. Mr. Libby was found guilty by a jury of his peers, and unfortunately, the President has chosen to ignore that decision.

The President's actions today show this Administration's disturbing view that they are above the law. I intend to continue to press hard in Congress to insure the integrity of the rule of law throughout all three branches of government.
