The Liberal Media

Jeff Greenfield just told Wolf Blitzer:

This might be a good case for a presidential pardon.

You know, pardoning Judith Miller. So she doesn't have to testify. So Fitzgerald can't make the case he presumably might be making against a prominent Bush administration official.

Sure, Jeff. Sounds like a great case to me.

...sam heldman reminds us:

Ken D nailed it above -- civil contempt (i.e., putting somebody in jail in order to induce them to comply with a court order, such as an order to testify, with the proviso that they can get out of jail as soon as they agree to do so) is not a crime, and therefore not pardonable. Jeff Greenfield was supposed to know something about the law, wasn't he??
