The Slime Regime

With the indictment against Cheney aide Scooter Libby, the news at the forefront will this story for some time. However, this story plays out, it will tend to mute the impact of other investigations into this administration's dirty laundry.

Cases to keep an eye on include the following:

* Cheney/Libby refusal to send key documents to the Senate committee investigating the reliability pre-war information.

* Jack Abramoff's, super lobbyist, indictment and related indictment of White House aide.

* SEC investigation of Senate majority leader Bill Frist's.

* Tom DeLay's indictment in Texas for money-laundering.

* Italian investigation into faked Niger documents that made their way into the White House.

* Col. Wilkerson's (a Colin Powell aide) accusation that a Cheney-Rumsfeld "cabal" has hijacked the US government.

* A major GOP donor indicted on charges that he tried to skirt campaign finance laws by giving other people thousands of dollars to pass on to President Bush's reelection effort.
