Bipartisan congressional negotiators squelch independent counsel's findings
Though it has had scant attention from the mainstream media, a bipartisan effort to squelch an independent counsel's final report on Clinton-era abuse of the Internal Revenue Service and Justice Department has gotten the attention of Web activists and commentators, causing a growing call for the release of the document that is said to including damning evidence against the 42nd president and his administration.
Over 10 years ago, independent counsel David Barrett was charged with investigating former Clinton Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros in relation to his lying to the FBI about tax fraud he committed trying to cover up payments to a mistress. Though Cisneros pleaded guilty in 1999, Barrett, in the course of his probe, found evidence of wrongdoing within the IRS and Justice Department in relation to the Cisneros fraud.
Reportedly, Clinton team members tried to interfere with Barrett's investigation, which has cost $21 million, including conducting surveillance of his office.
An IRS whistleblower told Barrett, a Republican, of a cover-up surrounding the Cisneros matter.
Writes columnist Robert Novak: "The informant said a regional IRS official had formulated a new rule enabling him to transfer an investigation of Cisneros to Washington to be buried by the Justice Department. Barrett's investigators found Lee Radek, head of Justice's public integrity office, determined to protect President Bill Clinton."
Columnist Emmett Tyrrell, who has called for the release of the entire Barrett report, writes:

Big Giant Texas Bump!
This needs to come out-NOW!! I promised some lib e-mail friends it was going to be soon.
A matter of seconds !! Great Post!
There is a good ol' boy unwritten rule that only the unimportant and unpopular politicians are subject to the rule of law.
Mark my words, nothing will come from the Barrett report. The willing accomplices in the MSM and the other side of the aisle will once again trump the truth........
Has the potential to stop the beast cold!
Who actually runs Congress, anyway?
This sounds good. Real good. Breaking News, possibly, for more bumps?
Would that anything, ANYTHING, would or could stick to the Clinton's, the real teflon presidents.
He stammered that his job was to work with the opposition. I told him, flat out, "I voted for you to defeat the Left, not hold hands and be friends!"
Needless to say, he's gone come next election.
Maybe once a month, the Barrett Report gets mentioned on the editorial page
of The Wall Street Journal.
I'm afraid that the chances we (the public) will see an authenticated
Sasquatch before we'll see that report.
This cannot go away. It may be up to us, but it must be revealed.
There is a practical solution to all this; the Barrett Report needs to be leaked and dispersed far and wide via the internet. Surely there is a conservative of good conscience somewhere who has access to the unredacted text.
To protect an anti-freedom, anti-truth, anti-life POS like Bill Clinton?
Check out my tagline!
You might want to ping him to this report. He does use the screen name that is the same as his: Tony Snow. ;o)
Surprise, surprise. They are all on the same team folks. Some of them are just a little bit more whacked out than the others.
