Cheney Under Fire

Federal law-enforcement officials said that they have developed hard evidence of possible criminal misconduct by two employees of Vice President Dick Cheney's office related to the unlawful exposure of a CIA officer's identity last year. The investigation, which is continuing, could lead to indictments, a Justice Department official said. (Insight online)
In other Cheney news:
[Cheney] spent several days in early January on a duck hunting trip with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, at a private camp in southern Louisiana.

Such companionship between a politician and a Supreme Court justice might not ordinarily raise eyebrows in all quarters, but the timing of this excursion made it particularly controversial. Just three weeks earlier, the Supreme Court, with Scalia's participation, had agreed to hear Cheney's appeal in a major lawsuit. (Star Tribune)
