Sheik Yerhariboudi

It would be a gross underestimation of Fitzgerald's ability and shrewdness to assume that he's completed his assault upon Mordor.

The main reason he's isolated Libby is to make Scooter feel like the lonely fall guy. Fitz has so far the stickiest, steepest charges and he can paste at least ten years' worth of jail time on Scoot.

Scoot feels alone, abandoned. He flips. Investigation continues and Scooter doesn't go to the Crowbar Hotel for a stretch of protracted rape and humiliation.

Let's not even mention DISBARRMENT.

Fitz is betting that Scooter would rather see Dick in an orange jumpsuit and face the humiliation of remaining free by peaching on his betters. Fitz has just so much ammo at this moment, and is looking for more, but needs help in getting it firmly in his hands. Fitz knows what it is, who has it and how to get it completely loaded into his gun.

He's just picking his targets at this moment, not overreaching: not expecting to take down a grizzly with a .38 special.

The Heretik

Agreed, Yerhariboudi. As much as you see defenders of Mordor citing the language in the indictment as limiting the damage, the document is also intriguing for what it does not say. The limited sense Fitzgerald discussed Libby's specific problems does not mean there will not be more general problems in Mordor later.
