So You Want to Talk About Corruption in High Places ....

It's hard to believe but there is still a functioning Independent Counsel investigating crimes alleged to have happened during the presidential administration of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

That would be Special Counsel David Barrett, who was appointed in May 1995 to probe allegations against then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. Cisneros pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge and paid a fine of $10,000 four years later, but Barrett continued working.

A finished report is expected sometime in the near future, as in a few months into the near future. NRO's Byron York estimates that Barrett's probe has cost more than $19 million to date.

Meanwhile Gateway Punit has details about what the forthcoming report will include regarding allegations that senior officials covered up a tax fraud case against Cisneros. And Gateway Pundit promises more to come. Go here for the details.
