Bush—Cheney CIA/Plame case indictments released
Bush orders Fitzgerald fired and espionage indictments quashed
by Tom Flocco
Washington, DC—October 21, 2005—12:00 EST—TomFlocco.com
exclusive—Today Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald handed over
22 indictments to Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, accusing
President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney and
others of espionage, obstruction of justice, perjury and a
variety of other charges in the matter of the CIA/Valerie
Plame leak-gate case.
According to intelligence sources who spoke with federal
whistleblowers Thomas Heneghan and Stewart Webb, Bush then
ordered Gonzalez to fire Fitzgerald and have the indictments
quashed and sealed.
Gonzalez refused to release the indictments which have been
handed down by the grand jury and ordered served by a judge,
subjecting the Attorney General to additional charges of
obstruction of justice, the sources said.
The indictments confirm our original “Bush-Cheney indicted”
report on August 2, 2005. .......(claims this Tom Flocco: Tai
Gonzalez was Bush’s former personal White House counsel before
receiving a presidential appointment as U.S. Attorney General.
The move is reminiscent of the “Saturday night massacre” when
President Nixon fired Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald
Cox in an attempt to save his presidency and obstruct justice.
Intelligence sources added that Bush tried to delay publicity
about his attempt to fire Fitzgerald and quash the indictments
this afternoon by ordering a diversion regarding a “Capitol
Hill police attempt to disrupt a suspicious package in a car
near the U.S. Capitol.”
The move to distract attention from the indictments occurred
not long after the receipt of process by Gonzalez, according
to intelligence sources with knowledge of the events.
While Gonzalez received the service of indictments, Bush was
in California this morning and was scheduled to speak at the
dedication of the new Air Force One pavilion at the Ronald
Reagan Presidential Library in California.
It can be assumed that Bush’s orders for Gonzalez to refuse
receipt of process and fire the prosecutor in the CIA leak
case were discussed over the telephone since Bush was to speak
at the Reagan Library just a few hours after the indictments
Bush should have finished his speech at approximately 2:30 pm
Eastern time, and it is probable that presidential strategy
sessions regarding how to prevent the indictments and their
criminal contents from becoming public have already commenced.
It is open to conjecture whether Bush could be arrested in
California before even returning to Washington, given the
criminal nature of the indictments.
An attempt to quash indictments and to fire Fitzgerald may
also cause a constitutional crisis if Bush and Gonzalez
continue to obstruct justice and defy U.S. law and
constitutional legal process.
Intelligence sources told TomFlocco.com that the military or
U.S. marshals should arrest Bush, Gonzalez, Cheney and others
immediately for their criminal acts in keeping explosive
espionage, obstruction and perjury indictments hidden from the
American people, all of which affects U.S. national security.
