Jurors asked at least three more questions Monday before completing the ninth day of deliberations in the trial of former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.
The notes were not made public, but late afternoon court arguments revealed that at least one question centered on what evidence jurors could use to consider whether Libby lied to the FBI .
Libby is accused of lying to the bureau and a grand jury about how he learned the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame and whom he discussed it with in 2003. Libby says any inaccuracies in his statements were the result of his faulty memory.
Walton sent jurors home and said he would answer the questions Tuesday.
Cooper says Libby told him that Plame worked for the CIA. Libby says he confirmed that he had heard that from other reporters but did not know if it was true.
