Early tar­gets

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“Hal­libur­ton, the CIA and big to­bacco com­pa­nies are among the early tar­gets iden­ti­fied by top Demo­cratic staff to ABC News as likely tar­gets for in­ves­ti­ga­tion once the Democrats take con­trol of the House at the be­gin­ning of next year,” Rhonda Schwartz re­ports at ABC.com.

“The staffers say Con­gress­woman Nancy Pelosi [. . .] has told top Demo­cratic donors there is a ‘100-hour agenda’ she wants to push through — tak­ing on the min­i­mum wage, drug and en­ergy prices and cor­rup­tion.

“De­fense con­trac­tors, in­clud­ing Hal­libur­ton, the intelligence ra­tio­nale for the war in Iraq and CIA se­cret pris­ons are what one staffer called ‘un­in­ves­ti­gated scan­dals.’ ”
