"Frank Wolf of Virginia and Lamar Smith of Texas."

They should investigate Clinton and how he accepted $10M in illegal campaign contributions from the Chinese (got off charges with a slap on his wrist) and gave the Chinese rocket guidance technology from Loral.

The people at the top rarely pay the price. It's usually their underlings.

Going all the way back to Nixon. 43 people were convicted of crimes related to Watergate but the ring leader was never charged and eventually received a full pardon.

And we, as a country, were OK with that for some reason. When I bring this up with people today they usually say "We needed to get that behind us."

I'll never understand that answer.

There is a possible Cray Research connection to all this, but I'm not going to say a thing about it. The MOUTHPIECE has a real problem with selective censorship that twists the meaning of a person's comments..
