Fitzgerald Indictments Could be Coming Down Today; Bush Acting Like Stalin in 1953, Claiming A Foreign Cabal Is Out to End His Presidency
Sherman Skolnick, the first to report on the Bush administration indictments months ago, claims Bush may be on the verge of a psychatric breakdown. He also claims Bush is saying ‘the Jews, the French and a foreign cabal’ are out to destroy him.

Chicago investigator and ‘judge buster,’ Sherman Skolnick, who once brought a former Illinois governor to his knees, putting him behind bars, is up to his old truth-telling tricks again, saying he’s received credible reports President Bush is on the verge of a psychiatric collapse over U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s pending indictments.
Skolnick said Bush has been ranting and raving in the White House, claiming “the Jews, the French and a foreign cabal” are conspiring to take down his Presidency and are behind the well-known and imminent Fitzgerald indictments.
“If anybody remembers Stalin back in 1953, Bush sounds just like him,” said Skolnick this week from his Chicago home. “He’s on a sinking ship and he knows it. I’ve gotten reports that when the indictment comes down he may leave the country and go to Alice Springs, Australia, a well-known CIA base of operation.”
Other reports, circulating from Washington insiders, claim the President is “emotionally unstable, totally absorbed with the fall his of presidency and “living on cloud nine” unable to focus on anything but Fitzgerald and his indictments which are going to reveal “the lying and illegal nature” Bush plunged America into war.
Skolnick also claims that Bush will not take the dignified way out and resign like President Nixon, but will go down “fighting and screaming’ or finally be convinced to go into forced exile.
“He won’t go easy, that’s for sure. And the indictments, including Bush and Cheney, could come down as early as this week and perhaps Wednesday,” said Skolnick. “Reports are Bush also has made a last ditch effort to go to the Supreme Court to have the indictments quashed but only two of the nine high court justices were in favor of listening to his story.”
Skolnick, well-known for his hard brand of investigating government corruption since the 1960’s, was the first to go public months ago with the story of the Fitzgerald indictments taking down Bush and his cronies, going forward with the story when many called his reporting and investigating “over the edge and baseless.”
However, Skolnick again has been “proved right,” as even the mainstream press and those in the Republican party close to Bush have acknowledged Fitzgerald’s indictments are not “hype” but are, in fact, a reality about to soon take place.
“I’ve heard reports, which have also surfaced in the “Capital Hill Blues” reports that Bush’s aides say he is flying off the handle and out of control,” said Skolnick. “Also my sources tell me that Bush, behind closed doors, is trying to tell the federal court in the District of Columbia that a foreign cabal is behind the indictments, trying to take his Presidency.
“He’s obviously losing it and if anyone saw him at his recent press conference, when he was questioned about indictments and refused to answer, he is definitely not all there. “Also, Gordon Liddy recently said on the Sean Hannity Show that Bush ‘ought to be put in a monkey cage’ and Chris Matthews acknowledged the indictments are for real and Bush is on the hot seat.”
This week other reports surfaced that Bush lawyers tried to get the federal court for the Eastern District of Columbia to quash Fitzgerald’s indictments but were unsuccessful on both occasions.
Sources close to the case said Bush’s personal lawyer, Harriet Miers, made an unsuccessful plea to the court to stop Fitzgerald in his tracks, a move judges felt had no legal basis.
Skolnick added that when Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez recently met with Fitzgerald, seeing the severity of the indictments, he immediately disqualified himself from the case, refusing to sign or issue the indictments against his colleagues in the White House.
Other sources close to the case said 22 indictments are expected to be released, going far beyond just the leaked evidence outing CIA agent Valerie Plame, but exposing the treasonous acts of Bush and others regarding the illegal nature of the Iraq War and doctoring of WMD intelligence reports leading to the unjustified invasion which has left thousand of soldiers and civilians dead as a result.
Skolnick claims politicians from all corners of the country are “reading the writing on the wall,’ trying to distance themselves from Bush, who basically is being left to drown in his own pool of political.
Skolnick claims all bets are off as to Bush’s successor, but he added the indictments will tarnish the administration so badly that “the ninth man down in the chain of command,” being an obscure position in the agriculture department, could possibly wind up as President after the political dust finally settles.
