Based on what you know now, which of the following statements about Lewis “Scooter” Libby do you think is true? One: Libby did not lie to the grand jury. Two: Libby misled the grand jury, but did so accidentally, not knowingly. Three: Libby lied to the grand jury knowingly, on his own initiative. Four: Libby lied to the grand jury because he was told to lie by a superior.
12% Did Not Lie
13% Misled Accidentally
29% Lied On Own Initiative
34% Lied Because He Was Told To
12% Not Sure
That’s 63% who think he lied on purpose, and a plurality who think he is part of a larger conspiracy.
I don’t know whether or not it’s impressive that 31% think Cheney will resign, or that 59% think he won’t.
