America's pastimes?: Baseball, clemency, obstruction

At yesterday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on Bush's commutation of Libby's sentence (basics here), there was only a little discussion of whether and how lawyers and judges would respond to the President's sentencing work in other cases.  But this issue has been very effectively covered at White Collar Crime Prof, where Peter Henning now has this new post discussing (and providing this link) to  a supplemental brief filedt by the defense team for Troy Ellerman, which is "aligning the attorney who leaked the grand jury testimony of Barry Bonds and other athletes about their steroid use in the Balco investigation with the erstwhile former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney."
