Rachel Maddow has all the details…and the documented proof:
$2 million in a Swiss bank account, with $200,000 a year in interest for him to live off of. And yes, the Saudis came through. If that’s not a scandal, I don’t know what is.
Please note that this is about a million (or two!) miles removed from the Boycott/Divest/Sanction campaign against Israeli apartheid, which is spearheaded and supported by countless Jews, including some in Israel. This is not that, and it is completely unrelated to that. This is Agnew’s own paranoid antisemitism talking — he apparently thought there was a Jewish conspiracy to control the media, and turn it against him. Even though the evidence of all his prior crimes is out there, well documented even by individuals with no ties to Israel OR the US Jewish community. (In that sense, he is quite of a piece with his disgustingly antisemitic boss, ol’ Tricky Dick himself.)
But this crime? This has not seen the light of day until now. And it should make for quite a few new and intriguing chapters in the saga of the Bush family ties to the House of Saud, not to mention those of the current Repugnican squatter-in-the-White-House.
