Ex-Clinton Cabinet Member Henry Cisneros & Tax Fraud Pops Up 11 Yrs Later
How convenient! A lil bit of "wagging the dog" to take the heat off the multiple BushCo's crimes, hmm? NYDailyNews: "A special prosecutor's long-delayed report (I'll say! 11 loong yrs delayed!) charges that a coverup at sr levels of the Clinton admin killed a tax fraud case against ex-cabinet member Henry Cisneros, who admitted in '99 that he had made secret payments to a mistress before serving as Clinton's secretary of Housing & Urban Development. David Barrett's 11yr, $23 million probe, which will be released today, states in stinging terms that this Clinton coverup succeeded. Barrett investigated tax fraud charges stemming from those under-the-table payments to the mistress." Dems have played corruption games (although no where near as far reaching as the corruption games today's GOP currently is playing) and the Dems paid dearly by getting ousted from the majority in the Congress in '94 BUT let's compare the Clinton presidency to the Bush presidency, shall we? Please click here. So, this "scandal" pops outta thin air 5 YRS after Clinton leaves the Oval Office?? 1.) If the GOP can smear Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, will the Dems get to challenge the independence of Barrett's prosecutorial zeal and political timing? 2.) It took 11 yrs and $23 million on an investigation that will only fetch a guilty plea to a misdemeanor? I want my hard-earned money back! 3.) If Fitz keeps his investigation open for 11 yrs, will he be able to arrest and jail Bush soon after 2008 for the 100,000+ Iraqi deaths he ordered & the 2,000+ dead US soldiers he is responsible for per his WMD lies, not to mention the illegal NSA spying, and the mammoth Abramoff-complicit RNC money-launderering crimes? Just asking...
