Cheney Faces Criminal Indictments; Other Illegal Actions Raise Warning Flags at White House

Vice President Dick Cheney faces criminal indictments for illegal activities while CEO of energy giant Halliburton and also illegally intervened to secure a $7 billion no-bid contract for his former employer after his election to office, an analysis by the White House counsels office concludes.

The Vice President is currently under investigation by French authorities for bribery, money laundering and misuse of corporate assets while at Halliburton and also faces a U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission probe of a $180 million "slush fund" that may have been used to pay bribes.

Please read the entire article. Let's face it. Dick Cheney is the worst sort of corporate and governmental crook. Besides all the legal problems discussed in this article, there is a good possibility that Cheney or his chief of staff, Scooter Libbey, will be indicted by the grand jury investigating the Valerie Plame leak.

Note: I tried to title this post "Dick "F U" Cheney Faces Indictment", but the censors cut the title down to "Dick." Somehow, that is even more appropriate.

YES!!!! I am one happy camper. So, lets see what the pro-Bush party does now. With Dick in toruble, whatever will Bush do? Or will this be covered up like the Franklin Scandal?

I can't believe it! I never thought this day could come. The republican party was to corrupt to be caught, or so I thought. So, who is gonna be Bush's new VP?

Dont hold your breath waiting for a court date. I suspect there might be another round of "Washington Sniper" played on the american public.

Washington Sniper? You mean the two guys who shot a bunch of people? How could this be like that? I see this as becoming Cheny suddenly dissapears, then he is found but won't talk under oath, Bush gives him a pardon, done.

I think this will just turn into one big floorshow and Bushie will pardon Cheney like Lay when no one is looking. But then again maybe Georgie is next and Rummy and all the rest if the Cabal maybe they could make a set of playing cards?

donguillermo thank you for bring this to everyone's attention
. Great Job !!!!

It's about time one of those crooks are brought-up on charges, YEA !!!

Now to get the goods on Bush's dirty-dealings. At any rate this will hurt Bushes chance for re-election even if he dumps Cheney, YES ,

A big fat ball of greasy corporate corruption MAY finally get his. It is interesting, watching our sound-bite news all you get is that Cheney cussed at Senator Patrick Leahy, NOT that Cheney is in very hot water with all his Halliburton deals.

Now if Cheney leaves, will GW Bush run around like a rooster with his head cut off?

Hmm, this has not been on tv, anywhere. I watched CNN, Local, and Fox news, nothing. The republicans have this pretty well hidden.

Your not going to see it or hear it on those channel s , their all one-sided and I bet you can figure-out whose side their on,

I want to see Bush running around with his head covered as "chicken little" did, screaming "My Empire's falling", " My Empire's falling", daddy help me, "My Empires falling",

Don't get too excited about this yet. First of all, Cheney hasn't actually been indicted anywhere. I think it is very likely he will be indicted in France. He is clearly vulnerable to conflict of interest charges in the no-bid Halliburton contracts, but when or even if he will be indicted is still a big question.

I think his biggest problem is the SEC investigation of the $180 million Halliburton slush fund. The Valerie Plame grand jury could also create problems if members of Cheney's staff are indicted.

Also notice that Capitol Hill Blue bases much of the article on inside knowledge from the Office of White House Counsel. You need to know that Capitol Hill Blue is not the most reliable source, and that they have had problems with unreliable sources in the past. To their credit, they have acknowledged when their sources turned out to be unreliable.

Finally, do we really want Cheney off the Republican ticket? Right now, Cheney is very unpopular, and I think the swirl of scandal around him will only get worse in the coming months. If Bush replaced Cheney with someone like John McCain or Condoleezza Rice, I think that would help the Republicans.

Damn it, he better get indicted damn it. He better get sent to a medium security prison and get stuck with bubba who got sent to jail for Bush sent his job overseas so he had no job and tried to rob a place so he would really be pissed at Cheney and have Dick meet his version of Cheney.

This is excellent new but do you know why it's not being reported here in the States? The government controlls the media. They're trying to protect Cheney. Of course Bush will totally deny the allegation and protect Cheney himself saying he is great. Why am I not surprised however when Bush lauged at the cabinet meeting and said "&$%@ e'm all."

Here's a little more about it, if anyone's interested. The first one (with the quote) I thought was pretty good, it shows that yes, the bush administratiion is trying to keep it hush hush....

"At the daily White House press briefing on January 23, President Bushs press secretary, Scott McClellan, was asked about an Associated Press story reporting that Cheney might be in some legal jeopardy. "So the question is," McClellan was asked, "if the French want to extradite the vice-president to stand trial in France, will the president allow for that extradition?"
McClellan: "Didnt I just talk about people using this for election-year advantage? John, go ahead."
Q: "No, wait. This is an AP report about a "
McClellan: "Sorry, John."
Q: " criminal investigation of "
McClellan: "John and we have I have heard your political commentary about it, and I think we will move on.""

We all know France is not a true ally to the US?
We can all assume France would just love to have Kerry, who has ties to the French, in the White House.
Could this be something they are cooking up to help get rid of Cheney, and therefroe Bush?
France is high on ly list of "people living in glass houses". We all know they shouldn't be throwing stones

You know, I've had quite enough with France-bashing. Listening to some people, you'd believe that France is a nation of cowards who never fight and always learn to surrender first.

Well... if the gnral comte de Rochambeau and the marquis de Lafayette had surrendered in 1779, there wouldn't be any America, now would there?

It's easy to discredit an entire nation. It's harder to try to understand the nuances of why that nation acts the way it does.

The Americans expect the world to understand why it acts the way it does, and it has a right to expect that. But America should have the same generosity towards countries that happen to disagree with American policy.
