Bush Says Probe Will Clear Cheney and Bush Defends Cheney in Face of SEC Probe. I’m sorry, but this is really inappropriate. Bush is the guy at the top, the boss of everyone involved in the probe. So what’s he doing describing the probe’s conclusions before the probe starts? Can you imagine being on the team that’s looking into this, after getting this subtle hint from the boss? And, meanwhile, Cheney led the transition process that gave jobs to everyone who will now be probing his activities.
And, by the way, Bush is still refusing to let the SEC release the file on his father’s “investigation” of his insider trading scam.
