Cheney must keep records, judge orders

A federal judge has ordered Dick Cheney to preserve a wide range of the records from his time as vice president. Dick Cheney and the Bush administration were sued to ensure that presidential records are not destroyed…

The Bush administration’s legal position “heightens the court’s concern” that some records may not be preserved, said Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.

A private group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, is suing Cheney and the Executive Office of the President in an effort to ensure that no presidential records are destroyed or handled in a way that makes them unavailable to the public…

This summer, Cheney chief of staff David Addington told Congress that the vice president belongs to neither the executive nor legislative branch of government but rather is attached by the Constitution to Congress. The vice president presides over the Senate.

It’s become a cliche; but, not only is this the least competent administration in the history of these United States – they raise the standard almost daily for corruption.

I sincerely hope the next administration has the courage and integrity to pursue these thugs in the courts. Wishful thinking, eh?

    These crooks really thought they were the beginning of a “1000-year Reich” – called the “New American Century”. They presumed to keep secret a pyramid of backdoor deals without equal in decades of sleazy American politics.

    Now, their greatest fear is truth seeing the light of day. Not that their dedicated nutball supporters won’t forgive their transgressions. There’s just something called Justice standing around waiting to be served.
