Nigeria Charges Dick Cheney With Bribery

Georgia US CheneyDick Cheney is facing arrest on corruption charges…in Nigeria. You can’t get much more shady then that. The BBC reports:

Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency is to charge former US Vice-President Dick Cheney over a bribery scandal that involves a former subsidiary of energy firm Halliburton. The case centers on engineering firm KBR, which admitted bribing officials. Mr Cheney was Halliburton’s chief executive before becoming vice-president to George W Bush in 2001.

KBR last year pleaded guilty to paying $180m (£115m) in bribes to Nigerian officials prior to 2007, when it was a subsidiary of Halliburton. The firm agreed to pay $579m (£372m) in fines related to the case in the US. But Nigeria, along with France and Switzerland, has conducted its own investigations into the case.

Mr Cheney’s lawyer, Terence O’Donnell, said US investigators had “found no suggestion of any impropriety by Dick Cheney in his role of CEO of Halliburton.”

“Any suggestion of misconduct on his part, made now, years later, is entirely baseless,” Mr O’Donnell said.

  1. The irony here is so beautiful as to almost defy description. Cheney being charged with bribery and corruption by Nigeria is like…being accused of serial murder by John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy. I don’t even care how this pans out…just the satisfaction of watching it play out in all its glory is worth it.

    Well…of all the crimes that Dick(less) Cheney can be accused of, not using a rubber, or the necessity of ever using a rubber in his All-Lesbian family will not be one of them.

    And speaking of criminals, is there anyone in that anti-American, anti-US Constitution, parasitical demonic family who isn’t a criminal?

    Cheney, America’s No. 1 draft-dodging cowardly perv….

    • Speaking as a lesbian American, I should let you know that the community has revoked both Lynne and Mary Cheney’s respective memberships, and demanded the return of the complimentary toaster they were given when they signed up.

  5. Do the Nigerians hang those found guilty of bribery?

    Doesn’t matter, Obama would never extradite.
