The little grand jury that could

A gentleman by the name of Tom Flocco is reporting that the president and vice-president have been indicted by a Chicago grand jury. Needless to say, the “Bush-hating” mainstream media is all over this one, because those liberal reporters just hate hate hate our glorious conservative president:


A Chicago grand jury has indicted the President and Vice-President of the United States along with multiple high officials in the Bush administration

U.S. federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s Chicago grand jury has issued perjury and obstruction of justice indictments to the following members of the Bush Administration: President George W. Bush, Vice-President Richard Cheney, Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Cheney Chief of Staff I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, imprisoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller and former Senior Cheney advisor Mary Matalin.

There were no indications given as to whether the President and his top staff members would appear publicly before cameras at the grand jury proceedings, given the gravity of the charges.

Besides the Valerie Plame CIA leak case, the Fitzgerald probe is reportedly far-reaching and expanding much deeper into past White House criminal acts involving Bush-Clinton drug money laundering in Mena, Arkansas to White House involvement in 9.11; but also for sending America’s young people to their deaths or to be maimed in Iraq and Afghanistan under false pretenses.

Interestingly enough, the U.S. Attorney’s office first stated that it had no comment, then commented that its OFFICE hadn’t issued any indictments. Which, of course, says absolutely nothing about whether the GRAND JURY issued them. Despite the heavy coverage on CNN and Fox, Citizen Spook decided to check it out:

CS: “Who am I speaking with?

Female assistant: “I’m not giving you any names for anybody here.”

CS: “Has the grand jury returned any indictments?”

She hung up.

I called the main number again, and asked for Richard Sanborn’s, was transferred and got the same female assistant on the phone:

Female assistant: “I told you we have no comment to your question.”

CS: “But I have more than one question.”

Female Assistant: “And we cannot comment, I have to go.”

CS: “Please don’t hang up, the duty paralegal said your office was the only place to go for a comment. And I understand you can’t comment, and I’ll respect that, but I have to get you on the record as saying ‘no comment’ to the questions I have, and not just a blanket answer. I understand you can’t comment, but will you please allow me to ask the questions, and if you’re answer is ‘no comment” that’s fine, I won’t press you, but please let me ask the questions so we can understand what you’re saying ‘no comment’ to.

Female assistant: “What’s your question, sir?”

CS: “Regarding Patrick Fitzgerald’s investigation, has the US Attorney presented any Indictments to the grand jury for deliberations?”

Female assistant: “No comment.”

CS: “Is the grand jury currently deliberating over any indictments?”

Female assistant: “No comment.”

CS: “Has the grand jury returned any true bills?”

Female assistant: “No comment.”

CS: “Has the grand jury returned any not true bills?”

Female assistant: “No comment.”

CS: “Has the grand jury returned any bills of ignoramus?”

Female assistant: “No comment.”

CS: “Has your office issued any Indictments?”

Female assistant: “This office has not issued any indictments.”
