Scooter Libby’s perjury charges ‘nothing’ .....Really?

Fox News contributor Monica Crowley.

Appearing on a June 12 broadcast of The O’Reilly Factor, Crowley claimed that when the former top aide to ex-Vice President Dick Cheney lied to investigators trying to determine who leaked the identity of a covert CIA agent, he was ultimately prosecuted “over nothing.”

“Look, in the Valerie Plame thing, the left pounded Cheney and they pounded Scooter Libby, and they ended up prosecuting Libby over nothing,” she said. “Plame was not even a covert operative. It was over nothing. Nobody did anything. There were no national security secrets to come out.”

Hmmm I thought perjury was a felony that carried a five year sentence?
Clearly this young lady seems to think since there was no damage done then nothing there's no crime.She is ignoring the fact "Plame’s network of spies who were working on finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and rooting out details of Iran’s nuclear program — collapsed. Then her husband’s business dried up".

One can only assume based on Fox's history,if Libby was a Democrat she won't ignore these facts.
