I got a letter today:
This new Bush/Harken insider trading revelation has really got me steamed:
Board was told of risks before Bush stock sale
Harken memo went to SEC after probe
By Michael Kranish and Beth Healy, Globe Staff, 10/30/2002
WASHINGTON – One week before George W. Bush’s now-famous sale of stock in Harken Energy Corp. in 1990, Harken was warned by its lawyers that Bush and other members of the troubled oil company’s board faced possible insider trading risks if they unloaded their shares.
These fucking pukes. Bush had the audacity to lie to the American people and suggest that matter had been looked into and he had been cleared. But now we learn that not only was he warned by Harken’s legal team, they hid the warning form the SEC when it investigated HIM for insider trading. Seems to me that means they or Bush are guilty of Obstruction of Justice, in addition to insider trading.
I gotta go for a walk and calm down. The hypocrisy is of these people is so damn maddening.
So I asked him if I can post the message, and he writes:
You can print it and use my name. I want the whole damn country to know what liars, swindlers and cheats these people are.
The GOP Thugs spent $70,000,000 destroying Clinton over lying about sex under oath and alleged crimes as involving the Whitewater affair. Bush’s Harken dealings are text book insider trading dealings, and Harken Energy’s off the balance sheet manipulations and phony profit reporting behavior/dealings pre-dated ENRON yet could have been used by ENRON as a how to guide.
But I didn’t post his name.
