    The final report of David M. Barrett, an independent counsel appointed in 1995 to investigate potential felonies committed by one-time Clinton administration Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros, is tentatively scheduled for release on Jan. 19, Barrett told FOXNews.com.

    Are we suprised? All the more reason to return the law making process to making laws. Not adding lines to funding bills that circumvent current ones in order to hide ones own ass.

    Bills that are proposed should be for 1 thing only. Need funding for the judiciary, thats the bill. Nothing else added. Need funding for highways, thats the bill. Dont throw in $1mil here and there for a random statue or a bridge to no where.

    That will be an "interesting" read, to put it mildly. What are the betting odds the MSM will ignore it to the extent they can?

    It used to be that both parties protected 'the top members', but that is another thing Watergate changed. The Republicans have been slower to end 'the old ways' but I think they are catching on now and want payback.

    A "gutted" report to be released?

    Free the Barrett Report
    By R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., American Spectator
    Published 1/5/2006

    People familiar with the Barrett Report claim that, during his investigation of former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros, Barrett came across illegal IRS and Justice Department activity in the Clinton years that involved corruption and infringements on the civil liberties of private citizens. A whistle-blower in the IRS, John Filan, delivered up an 18-page blueprint sketching out the illegal activities and perhaps identifying the victims. Sources claim it contains some of the most illuminating revelations of IRS misconduct ever. Lawyers at the Clintons' ever-reliable Washington firm of Williams and Connolly have bottled the report up since it was finished in August of 2004. Democrats and a couple of incompetent Republicans have seen to it that the report is gutted. This month the gutted report will be made public. The date is January 19. Safire seems to want investigative journalists to get the rest of the report out. Frankly I would like to see our elected legislators on Capitol Hill get the whole, unredacted report out.

    The report seems to be making more and more news. Perhaps we will get to see the whole thing. The IRS is by far and away the government agency most able to effect the rights, freedom, and privacy of US citizens.
