Cheney and Gonzales Indicted
A South Texas grand jury has indicted Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County’s federal detention centers.
The indictment criticizes Cheney’s investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and “at least misdemeanor assaults” on detainees by working through the prison companies.
Cheney’s office said it has not received an indictment yet.
“I think this is a case where it may have hit AP’s desk before it hit ours,” a Cheney aide told FOX News, referring to The Associated Press.
As my friend Jim Becker said: Things are changing.
