Abramoff, Bush Met Almost a Dozen Times:


In e-mail correspondence released by the American Progress Action Fund and the blog Think Progress, Jack Abramoff reveals that he met with President Bush “almost a dozen times.” According to the Los Angeles Times, Abramoff, in e-mails with Washingtonian editor Kim Eisler, claims that he was invited to the President’s ranch in Crawford, Texas and that he engaged in conversations with the President “about a bunch of things, including details of my kids.” The Washington Post reports that Abramoff wrote that Bush “has one of the best memories of any politicians I have ever met.” Abramoff appears upset about the President’s statements claiming that they never met or talked. The President has denied ever talking to or meeting with Abramoff outside of three Hanukah parties at the White House.
