Republicans turn against Lewis Libby

WASHINGTON (AP)_Some Republicans on Capitol Hill are welcoming Lewis Libby's resignation as Vice President Cheney's chief of staff.

Congressman Jim Ramstad says it's time to stop the leaks and spins. He says he'd like to see Washington turned into what he calls "one big recovery meeting where people say what they mean and mean what they say."

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist says the Senate won't investigate the CIA leak.

Libby's indictment in the CIA leak investigation is a political embarrassment for President Bush. It paves the way for a possible trial renewing the focus on the administration's faulty rationale for going to war against Iraq.
