    FBI agents have made two arrests after raiding the D.C. office of the man tapped to be President Obama's chief information officer, sources told FOX News.

    The agents on Thursday morning raided the office of Vivek Kundra, who was leaving his post as the D.C. chief technology officer to join the administration. The investigation is related to allegations of corruption, one source said, but is not targeting Kundra.

    Seriously...Obama is the biggest shyster that has held office. If those who support him cannot recognize this mere fact...I must conclude they are never going to accept it or they support his so called conduct.

    Kundra was not a target of the investigation, a source told FOX News. The target was someone who worked for him. Are you claiming that if someone who works for you commits a crime you should go to jail? Ridiculous.

    It was consistent. Not limited to one incident.

    fNobody paid for their crimes in the Bush administration. Just ask Scooter Libby.

    Not for long. Bush commuted his sentence or he'd still be in jail. He did not serve his sentence.

    Scooter Libby should have never served ONE day in jail! He should have received a pardon from President Bush.

    As we have come to expect from you, you just aren't telling the truth. You just can't help yourself can you?

    Scooter Libby served time in prison, paid a $250,000 fine, has two years of supervised release, 400 hours of community service, and lost his law license.

    The only part of his sentence he didn't serve was part of the jail time that was commuted by Bush.

    These are facts that are easily accessible for anyone with google (and you have it ... use it). You simply didn't tell the truth. There is absolutely no excuse for you to come in here and say something that is blatantly untrue. That is completely unacceptable.

    You need to start telling the truth or remove yourself from these conversations.

    As I stated, he didn't serve his full sentence. Therefore he did not pay his debt to society. He should still be in prison. Them's the facts. If I am sentenced to life and serve a year and then my buddy, the President, turns me loose, did I pay my debt?

    Read the great senator's quote in your signature. You are not entitled to your own facts. The notion that Libby did not pay his debt to society is your opinion. A commutation of a term means you served your term, much like when a landlord allows you to break a lease without penalty under agreement. You have implicitly then fulfilled your lease.

    You are incorrect. Not serving your full sentence doesn't mean you haven't paid your debt. The debt could have been too high (in this case, given the facts, it appears that any judgment was too high). But the court could have erred in assessing the debt.

    If you were sentenced to life for stealing a pack of bubble gum, then yes, you paid your debt.

    I recently got a tax notice saying I owed money for 2007 taxes, with penalties and a returned check fee. Turns out, they never presented the check to my bank for payment. So under your thinking, I haven't paid my debt if I don't pay the $50 returned check fee and the penalties. But the fee and penalties was unjust and therefore, should not be assessed.

    Simply put, your thinking is just faulty, just as your original charge was.

    You said "Nobody paid for their crimes in the Bush adminstration." That is simply false. It should not have been said, and you should apologize for it and retract it.

    Long enough for lying about a "crime" that never happened.

    When is Bill Clinton going to serve his time for perjury?

    What was that about serving time in prison?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    On June 5, 2007, the presiding trial judge, Reggie B. Walton, sentenced Libby to 30 months in federal prison, a fine of $250,000, and two years of supervised release, including 400 hours of community service,[10][11][12][13] and then ordered Libby to begin his sentence immediately.[14]

    On July 2, 2007, when Libby's appeal of Judge Walton's order failed, President Bush commuted Libby's 30-month prison sentence, leaving the other parts of his sentence intact.[15][16] In commuting Libby's prison term, Bush stated: "I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison. ... My decision to commute his prison sentence leaves in place a harsh punishment for Mr. Libby. The reputation he gained through his years of public service and professional work in the legal community is forever damaged."[15]

    The persecution [not prosecution] of Scooter Libby is a vivid example of the Bush hatred displayed prominently by some on this Christian Forum. As far as I am concerned Fitzgerald should spend some time in jail for prosecutorial misconduct. He knew who leaked Plame's name and that no crime was committed yet he continued his persecution [not prosecution] hoping to nail Rove to further his ambitions.
