No Known Congressional Report, Inquiry into Abramoff and Lawmakers:


CongressDaily PM reports that the Senate Indian Affairs Committee will finally issue a report on Jack Abramoff and his bilking of Indian tribes in the next two months. However, the report will not touch on Abramoff’s dealings with lawmakers or executive branch officials meaning that “two years after news of the activities of Abramoff and his allies first came to light, there is no known congressional inquiry into whether lawmakers or administration officials took improper or illegal actions on their behalf.” Congress has essentially given up its authority to investigate the matter and left it up to career Justice Department investigators and prosecutors.
