Fitzmas: Libby Hit FIVE times

Oh I'm happy: 2 perjury, 2 false statements, 1 obstruction of justice.

Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been indicted by the federal grand jury investigating the outing of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame for perjury, obstruction of justice, and other charges, RAW STORY can confirm.

Libby will resign. ABC News, citing a White House source, said his "boxes are packed." According to the New York Daily News, his post will be filled by Cheney's chief counsel David Addington. The announcement will be made at 2 p.m. ET.

The only sitting Cabinet member to be indicted in recent history was President Reagan's labor secretary, Raymond J. Donovan. Accused of grand larceny in 1984, he was acquitted in 1987. H.R. Haldeman, chief of staff to President Nixon, resigned before being indicted -- and convicted -- in the Watergate coverup.
