The US president Scooter" Libby will not serve any of his 30- month prison

Bush not ruling out Libby pardon
The US president has refused to rule out granting a full pardon to a former White House aide convicted of perjury.

George Bush had already invoked his presidential powers to ensure that Lewis "Scooter" Libby will not serve any of his 30- month prison sentence for obstructing an investigation into a CIA leak.




"I felt the punishment was severe. So I made a decision to commute his sentence, but leave in place a serious fine and probation," Bush said after visiting wounded troops at the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre on Tuesday.

"As to the future I rule nothing in and nothing out."






Libby, a former aide to Dick Cheney, the vice-president, still has a felony conviction on his record, two years on probation and a $250,000 fine.
