Cheney on Fox News Sunday December 22, 2008
Cheney admits to telling Pat Leahy to go F*** himself on the Senate floor in 2004 claiming he felt it was “imperative” at the time.
Friday June 25th, 2004 CNN wrote “The story, which was recounted by several sources, goes like this: “Cheney, who as president of the Senate was present for the picture day, turned to Leahy and scolded the senator over his recent criticism of the vice president for Halliburton’s alleged war profiteering.
“Cheney is the former CEO of Halliburton, and Democrats have suggested that while serving in the Bush administration he helped win lucrative contracts for his former firm, including a no-bid contract to rebuild Iraq.
“Cheney’s office has said repeatedly that the vice president has no role in government contracting and has severed all financial ties with the Texas-based oil services conglomerate.
“Cheney was chief executive officer of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000. He resigned when he became George Bush’s running mate.
“In response to Cheney, Leahy reminded Cheney that the vice president had once accused him of being a bad Catholic, to which Cheney replied either “f— off” or “go f— yourself.””
