    Exclamation Dick Cheney and former Attorney General indicted!!!

    Story developing with more names...

    Vice President Cheney indicted by Willacy County grand jury

    Vice President Cheney indicted by Willacy County grand jury

    By Emma Perez-Trevino, The Brownsville Herald
    November 18, 2008 - 3:25PM

    A Willacy County grand jury under District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra returned multi-count indictments Monday against Vice President Dick Cheney, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, plus several other public officials.

    The indictment accuses Cheney and Gonzales of engaging in organized criminal activity. It 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.

    Gonzales is accused of using his position while in office to stop an investigation into abuses at the federal detention centers.

    Another indictment charges state Sen. Eddie Lucio Jr. with profiting from his public office by accepting honoraria from prison management companies.

    Also indicted are state District Judges Janet Leal, state District Judge Migdalia Lopez, The GEO Group (formerly Wackenhut Corporation), former U.S. Attorney Mervyn Mosbacher, Gus Garza and Gilberto Lozano.

    They all face a stream of criminal charges including abuse of office, profiting from office, and murder.

    For more information on this story, read Wednesday's The Brownsville Herald.

    Is this the same as the Vanguard Group which does no-load mutual funds? That's who we're invested with?

    Vanguard has more mutual funds invested in Halliburton than any other investment company.

    Are yo sure he can pardon charges, or would Cheney have to be convicted first?
