Vanity Fair: Bush Had Ties to Abramoff
WASHINGTON (AP) --
Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff says President Bush knew him well enough to joke with him about weightlifting. "What are you benching, buff guy?" Abramoff said Bush asked him. The president has said he doesn't know Abramoff.
Abramoff said he finds it hard to believe Bush doesn't remember the 10 or so photos he and members of his family had snapped with the president and first lady.
"He (Bush) has one of the best memories of any politician I have ever met," Abramoff wrote in an e-mail, according to Vanity Fair's April issue being released this week. "Perhaps he has forgotten everything. Who knows?"..."
Look for the full interview in the next issue of Vanity Fair.
Anyone who thinks Bush was not in on the Abramoff cash bonanza probably believes Lyndee English was the only culprit torturing detainees at Abu Ghraib.
