I don't know how reliable this is, but here it is: Sherman Skolnick, a long time Chicago ‘judge buster’ with a 40 year history of investigating judicial criminality, today confirmed his sources claim U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is in Chicago looking for a way to “prevent a national catastrophe” by mediating the dilemma caused by the recent grand jury indictments against President Bush and other high-level officials. Skolnick claims a ‘true bill’ has been voted by the grand jury, indicting Bush and others for perjury and obstruction of justice, as well as naming U.S. Supreme Antonin Scalia and William Rehnquist as un-indicted co-conspirators. Skolnick adds the indictments have been suppressed from the public due to the sensitivity of issues involved, similar to way indictments against Richard Nixon were suppressed during Watergate....

...According to Skolnick’s sources, Bush has been given two distinct choices in the wake of the impending release of the indictments suppressed from public view, either to resign or stop the grand jury process, his sources telling him that Bush said ‘if he takes the fall for this, he’ll cause a financial disaster in the process.”

Skolnick also said Newsweek went to press Saturday at 6pm with a story to hit news stands Monday regarding the zealous Chicago Special Prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation that started in 2003. Fitzgerald's probe began by looking into the Valerie Plame-CIA leak, but spilled over into more damaging issues involving Bush and others, including the 2000 Presidential elections, the war and Iraq and even the administration’s handling of 9/11.

Recently on his website and he posted an article titled "Bush and Co. Face Prosecution," where he gave a detailed look at the recent grand jury proceedings going on in Chicago and indictments handed down against Bush.

"One or more of the grand juries have concluded their probe and have voted True Bills, Federal Criminal indictments, against George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, "Scooter" Libby, Condoleeza Rice, and Theodore B. Olson; and several media people not previously mentioned in the monopoly press as implicated," wrote Skolnick.

"Shown also as un-indicted co-conspirators are two Judges on the U.S. Supreme Court, William Rehnquist and Antonin Scalia, who are among the "Gang of Five" also in Bush versus Gore. Because of the horrendous consequences involved, the indictments are suppressed and there may be an extended delay until they appear on the Chicago Federal Court open records.

Also, last week investigative reporter Tom Flocco reported that Fitzgerald's grand jury voted out "true bills" or federal criminal indictments against President Bush, Vice-President Cheney, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, former CIA Director George Tenet, Presidential Senior Advisor Karl Rove, Presidential Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Vice-Presidential Chief of Staff I. "Scooter" Libby, imprisoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Vice-Presidential Senior Advisor Mary Matalin.

However, the U.S. Attorney's office in Chicago, through its media spokesman, Randall Sanborn, refused comment on any aspect of the grand jury proceedings, but high-level and credible legal observers claim suppression of grand jury indictments is not unusual, especially when dealing with matters concerning the national interest such as the Nixon indictments during Watergate and now Bush.

Although Flocco is taking considerable heat for running the story and today retracted a follow-up story adding more details about Bush’s alleged response to hearing about the indictments, Skolnick is standing by the facts behind his own version of the indictments, saying he was unaware of Flocco’s situation.

"I expected to be a called a liar on this one for sometime after my story appeared, but the truth will come out," said Skolnick after his original story on Friday appeared....
