    "Cheney is accused of investing some $85 million in the Vanguard Group that houses federal inmates. The grand jury accuses Cheney and Alberto Gonzalez of engaging in organized criminal activity."

    "Several political figures also indicted

    WILLACY COUNTY - A Willacy County grand jury has indicted a number of political figures, including Vice President Dick Cheney.

    Indictments have not yet been made public and we're told a district judge still has to sign the indictments. Two state district judges are also indicted along with Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr.

    NEWSCHANNEL 5 is digging to find out more. Senator Lucio has already issued a statement in response to the indictment. It says a motion will be filed to quash Senator Lucio's indictment this week.

    NEWSCHANNEL 5 is working in Willacy County right now and will bring you the latest when it becomes available."

    Nothing may come of it, but shut up, let me have my moment. icon_smile.gif

    Yeah, nothing WILL come of it. No local Grand Jury has any jurisdiction over the Vice-President. That office is only subject to impeachment proceedings by the US Congress.

    Not sure who's driving this, but it's all a sham.

    of all the contrived nonsense to go after him about when there are REAL impeachable offenses on his record!

    Al Capone was imprisoned for tax evasion and had other "greater" crimes that he couldn't be brought to justice for, so maybe this could be Cheney's "tax evasion" that he goes to prison for.

    I certainly would want to see Cheney charged for war crimes, but I don't think it will ever happen in the US, and not by means of a local Grand Jury. Plus Bush may issue a blanket pardon before he leaves office, that immunizes them all from US prosecution at all levels.

    I'm more intrigued by the idea of charges being brought before an international war crimes court, under the jurisdiction of the United Nations, to which the US is a signatory. For political reasons I don't think the US would take the lead, but other nations could bring the charges instead. And a US Presidential pardon would have no bearing in that case.
