The report comes at a time when several of Trump's own political allies face similar charges, although the White House has said no pardons are now being considered for people caught up in the Russian Federation investigation.
President Trump made clear that he doesn't know Libby, "but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly".
Plame was married to a critic of the Bush administration. He was not charged with the leak, however.
Former FBI director James Comey - who at the time was serving as deputy attorney general - was the one who appointed a special prosecutor in the Plame case.
Cheney had suspected that Comey's appointment of the special counsel was revenge for a dispute regarding the legality of a surveillance program, according to the New York Times, which had an advance report on the expected announcement.
ABC News, quoting unidentified sources familiar with the president's thinking, reported Trump had been mulling the move for several months.
Now, a decade later, Libby is finally getting that pardon at last - for reasons no one quite understands, other than President Trump himself.
Since the conviction, Libby's law license has been restored and then-Virginia Gov.
"I am working on legislation in which any pardon the president issues in which he is a potential witness, subject, or target, the files ought to be provided to Congress so the American people can tell whether this is part of an obstruction of justice", Schiff said.
According to the New York Times, Libby's case "has always been a cause for conservatives who maintained that he was a victim of a special prosecutor run amok, an argument that may have resonated with the president".
