Jurors in the perjury trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby indicated yesterday they remain focused on whether Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff lied to the FBI about a July 12, 2003, conversation with Matthew Cooper, then a reporter for Time magazine.
In a note to the presiding judge late yesterday afternoon, jurors asked three questions about how they should decide whether Libby is guilty of making a false statement to investigators about his conversation with Cooper.
After sending the note, the jury concluded its ninth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict. During that time, it has sent U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton five questions about Libby's statements to the FBI regarding his conversation with Cooper.
