Libby resigns after indictment


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lewis Libby, a senior aide to Vice President Dick Cheney who was indicted in the CIA leak investigation, has resigned and left the White House, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said on Friday.

Libby resigned "earlier today, it was accepted, and he is no longer at the White House," McClellan told reporters.

"We'll have more to say after the special counsel has his press availability," he said. Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald planned to hold a news conference at 2 p.m. EDT.

Libby submitted his letter of resignation earlier on Friday, McClellan said.

Libby was indicted on five criminal counts of obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements after a two-year investigation into the leak of a covert CIA operative's identity.
