Dick Cheney To Be Charged In Halliburton Case (UPDATED)
September 7, 2015

UPDATE: This is an old story that came through Twitter as breaking news. Sorry for the misinformation!

They'll never get him there to stand trial, but it's always good to hear he's not forgotten:

Nigeria's anti-corruption police said on Thursday they planned to file charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in a $180 million bribery case involving a former unit of oil services firmHalliburton.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday summoned the country chief of Halliburton and last week detained 10 Nigerian and expatriate Halliburton staff for questioning after raiding itsLagos office.

"We are filing charges against Cheney," EFCC spokesman Femi Babafemitold Reuters, but declined to give any further details on what the charges were, or where they would be filed.

Of course, there are other things he could be charged for, right here at home.
