NEW YORK: A document suggesting that Texas oilman Oscar S. Wyatt Jr. provided former President Saddam Hussein's government with information about when the United States would invade Iraq should be excluded from his upcoming oil-for-food trial, his lawyers say.
"This document essentially alleges that Wyatt has committed the deplorable crime of treason and aided an enemy of the United States," the lawyers said in court papers made public Tuesday.
Wyatt is scheduled to go on trial next month on charges that he conspired to pay millions of dollars in kickbacks to Saddam's regime in Iraq to win contracts in the United Nations' oil-for-food program.

"Such a document is undeniably prejudicial, as a jury sitting during the pendency of the ongoing Iraq war would potentially be prejudiced against Wyatt upon learning that he allegedly gave information about the United States invasion to Iraqi officials," the papers said.
The document also claims Wyatt convinced Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy to deliver a speech against the war with Iraq, the lawyers wrote.

They buried the lead, as always -— last bit.
Where would he get information about our invasion in the first place?
Shine the light of day on all truth.
Perhaps the gentleman ought to do the right thing.
It's right outside his back door.
They sure did!
Unfortunately, with enough cash, a person in his position can get that sort of information.
Hang *his* a$$ right next to Wyatt's.....
I’m surprised we don’t have a “Honor Treason” holiday in America with so many walking around.
ALL evidence is prejudicial.
The motion must alege the evidence is UNFAIRLY prejudicial because its prejudice is not probative to the charges.
This seems VERY probative.
“The document also claims Wyatt convinced Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy to deliver a speech against the war with Iraq, the lawyers wrote.”
If that conversation took place; I bet Kennedy was half way out of the room with his speech ready before Wyatt even finished.
Hang Wyatt and Chappaquidick Ted Kennedy too.
When can we hang him?
“Your Honor, I ask that this evidence be suppressed because it proves my client is guilty as sin.”
Lawyers: Continously proving that snakes evolved into sharks and sharks into humans.
(sorry for smear, all of you honorable JDs (g))
Notice he contributes to Jay Rockefeller and Kofi Annan's son is also listed as a co-conspirator in this scam.
When is the TREASON trial?
With an equally big name...Rockerfeller.
