The "I" is for INDICTED

I. Lewis Libby won't be saved by his warm, fuzzy nickname now. Out of the 5 violations which the investigation looked into, Libby has been charged with violating 3 of them, two of them twice. The charges are obstruction of justice, false statements (2) and perjury (2).

You can read the indictments here (skip to page 9).

You need to re-read the document. He was charged as follows (From the front page of the indictment):

Count 1: Obstruction of Justice
Count 2: False Statements
Count 3: False Statements
Count 4: Perjury
Count 5: Perjury

You are correct; what I posted were the specific violations on which the investigation was based, rather than what the final indictments were. The former had the 2 additional violations. I have corrected the post.
