Posted on 03/07/2006 7:23:21 AM PST by rellimpank
Lost in the tumult over Islamic port deals and Katrina video capers is the recently released -- and willfully ignored -- Barrett Report. David Barrett, you'll recall, is the independent counsel appointed in 1995 to investigate allegations of impropriety against President Clinton's Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros. Mr. Barrett found his path mined by the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service and President Clinton's attorneys, even after Mr. Clinton departed the White House. He prepared 18 felony indictments against Mr. Cisneros but had to settle for a guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge (lying to the FBI about his mistress, a poor choice for a tax write-off). He sought to prosecute Mr. Cisneros for tax fraud over a period of years but was thwarted by Attorney General Janet Reno. Ultimately Mr. Cisneros resigned his post, whereupon President Clinton, constitutionally bound to men who lie about their mistresses, pardoned him.

I have't .. though some Dems in Congress want us to forget
Hmmmm. . . .
Not to mention he has been an unregistered agent for foreign nations over the last 6+ years....
Not just the Dems. My critter's a Pubbie, and still hasn't gotten back to me after I called about it weeks ago. Grrrrr....
Hmmm... is right.
...napping with Ruthie, no doubt.
Rich Lowry has a book out titled "Legacy" - about Bent Willie, but I don't know anything further.
Best if it comes out in October. March is too early. (Hee hee.)
... the image in the morning news perpetually on my wish list ...
its stark moral relativism that duke over 8 years when cisneros got nothing. These people keep just keep giving.
Is Tony Snow the only talk show host covering this in depth?
If you can say that while writing this article, never mind the subject matter of which you write.....I just don't get it.
A Clinton story for you!
Something stinks. It's way past time to get the full story out. The spineless GOPers are starting to disgust me. It should not be the President who has to do everything. He's got wars to fight and needs to stay above this, but congressmen don't.
This is not unlike something David Shippers wrote about Hillary Clinton.
Congress is a cesspool. Both houses. Both parties.
My congress critter is Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) and I called his office 3 times and noone there knew what the hell I was talking about. I told them and even went to his office in Savannah and then his aide called me from D.C. and told how to "find the report on the internet". I told her I knew that part of the report was available but that I wanted to see the redacted portions too. Kingston's office isn't up to speed on this and I have the idea that he won't do anything at all to get it released either. What a bad joke on all the American people this is. The really sad part to me is that Kingston is #5 on the Republican hierarchy list. If Kingston doesn't get his act together and get this report released in its' entirety, I'll never vote for him again! I told his office that too.
