Jurors deliberated a third day Friday without reaching a verdict on whether former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby obstructed the investigation into who leaked the identity of a CIA operative married to a prominent Iraq war critic.

After 2.5 days of deliberations over the fate of Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, the eight women and four men went home until Monday.

In addition to obstruction of the leak investigation, Libby is charged with lying to the FBI and a grand jury about how he learned about and whom he told about CIA operative Valerie Plame.

Prosecutors say he concocted a story to avoid losing his job for disclosing classified information to reporters without authorization. Libby said he gave investigators his best recollection of what happened and any errors resulted from memory flaws.
