  • I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby is a former American lawyer, a prominent Republican and former adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney. Libby was disbarred after being convicted of a felony in relation to the Plame affair. From 2001 to 2005, Libby held the offices of Assistant to the Vice President for National Security Affairs and Chief of Staff to the Vice President of the United States and Assistant to the President during the administration of President George W. Bush. In October 2005, Libby was indicted by a federal grand jury concerning the investigation of the leak of the covert identity of Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame Wilson. Plame's position at the CIA was considered classified information. Libby was indicted on five counts relating to the Plame affair: Two counts of perjury, two counts of making false statements to federal investigators, and one count of obstruction of justice. Libby resigned all three government positions immediately after the indictment was announced. In the subsequent federal trial, United States v. Libby, the jury convicted Libby on four of the five counts in the indictment and acquitted on the second count of making false statements.
