Texas Grand Jury Indicts Cheney, Gonzales

No, it’s not for war crimes or Gitmo or lying to the American people or anything like that. Soon. In the meantime, the expectation is that Dick Cheney will wiggle free from this particular case.

From FOX News:

A South Texas grand jury has indicted Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County’s federal detention centers.

The indictment 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.
