Libby: The Cost of Building A Case

The Libby Legal Defense Trust here has a wonderful website that provides some of the "other side" to what the government is alleging. Clearly the advisory committee has some impressive names listed. (see here). 

More and more individuals accused of white collar crimes are turning to the web to present their story and to obtain favorable press.  Here we see not only a place to present favorable evidence, but also a call to assist with the legal costs of presenting a case.  On the home page of this web site, Ambassador Mel Sembler calls for people to join "The Libby Legal Defense Trust to help Scooter defray his legal costs from the recent charges."

(esp) (with a hat tip to Peter Lattman of the WSJ here) See also prior post here.

What do they say on the "other side"? I couldn't find anything relevant to the grand jury's charge that: "In or about March 2004, in the District of Columbia, I. LEWIS LIBBY,
also known as “SCOOTER LIBBY,” defendant herein, did knowingly and corruptly endeavor to influence, obstruct and impede the due
administration of justice... by misleading and deceiving the grand jury as to when, and the manner and means by which, LIBBY acquired and subsequently disclosed to the media information concerning the employment of Valerie Wilson by the CIA..."

I couldn't find anything relevant to that at all.
