Pelosi Statement on Indictment of I. Lewis Libby

Pelosi Statement on Criminal Indictment of I. Lewis Libby

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today following the criminal indictment of Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff I. Lewis Libby:

"The criminal indictments of a top White House official mark a sad day for America and another chapter in the Republicans' culture of corruption. At the heart of these indictments was the effort by the Bush Administration to discredit critics of its Iraq policy with reckless disregard for national security and the public trust."
