CIA blocking Duke Cunningham investigation
In May of last year Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, the third highest-ranking member of the CIA, was implicated a scandal involving erstwhile Republican congressman Duke Cunningham, defense contracts, and orgies at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. (If this doesn't ring a bell, refresh your memory with Jane Hamsher's Hookergate 101.)
Now, the CIA is refusing to cooperate with federal authorities investigating Cunningham's various national-security related influence peddling schemes.
Cunningham is already in jail for taking bribes from defense contractors. If Foggo were indicted, he would become the highest-ranking member of the CIA in history to be prosecuted for a crime.
TPM Muckraker says that Foggo's indictment was expected months ago, but the CIA refuses to declassify key documents.
