IN DEFENSE OF BUSH - episode 5
In which Ned Needleman defends the Bush-Cheney White House against the accusation the White House threatened a process server with arrest over his attempt to serve Vice President Cheney with a complaint filed against him by Judicial Watch on behalf of shareholders of Halliburton.
IDB: Welcome to another episode of In Defense of Bush. Here we have a caller named Elmer from San Diego. What sort of mud do you want to throw at the president Elmer? I'm Ned Needleman ready and eager to defend!
Elmer: It's not just mud about Bush, more about the Bush-Cheney White House. I think Cheney's pulling a lot of the strings on George so I don't want to leave him out. It seems to me that they're consistantly into obstructing justice. Here's one little tiny example. I read here now from the website of Judicial Watch, an article of July 26, 2004, entitled
Process Server Threatened With Jail By White House Security
White House Refuses to Allow Complaint to be Lawfully Served On Vice President Cheney
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that
investigates and prosecutes public corruption, today reported that
security staff at The White House threatened a process server with arrest
over his attempt to serve Vice President Cheney with a complaint filed
against him by Judicial Watch on behalf of shareholders of Halliburton. It
is a crime to interfere with service of process.
IDB: Okay, hmm. Let me ask Dick Cheney what he suggests. Just wait a second.
IDB: I've talked to the Vice President and IN DEFENSE OF BUSH, we agree that you should go fuck yourself!
Elmer: That's not very...
IDB: And that's all the time we have right now. I'm Ned Needleman In Defense of Bush.
