So Nice For a Change...

...that another country's president is under criminal investigation:

French judges placed former prime minister Dominique de Villepin under formal investigation on Friday for his role in an alleged plot to smear Nicolas Sarkozy and damage his chances of winning the presidency.

He said he would cooperate fully but said he had no involvement in the scandal in which Sarkozy's name appeared on a faked list of accounts purportedly held at Luxembourg-based securities clearing house Clearstream.
