Libby: Government Files Sentencing Guideline Calculations

Earlier I wrote about the Government's sentencing memorandum for Scooter Libby, and noted that it would be filing an explanation of how it calculated Libby's guidelines at 30 to 37 months. I've uploaded the newly filed calculations here, and I have to say, I disagree with them. As does the Probation Department.

It's a very complicated calculation because instead of just using the perjury, obstruction and false statement guidelines, it asks the Court to cross-reference those guidelines with the higher guidelines for violations of the IIPA and Espionage Act.
