JOHN LEHMANN - A federal judge ruled yesterday that Bill Clinton was shielded from a shareholder fraud suit alleging he ignored a stock scam in exchange for a $1 million donation to his presidential library. Manhattan federal Judge Gerald Lynch dismissed the claims, ruling he was protected by presidential immunity. The suit was brought by seven Global Crossing investors who were wiped out when the company collapsed a year ago. They alleged Clinton joined a conspiracy by ignoring fraudulent transactions at Global Crossing and closing his eyes to the "corruption of Pentagon officials." Lynch said presidential immunity also protected Clinton from allegations of "improper motivation" relating to the $1 million payment to the library from Global Crossing chairman Gary Winnick.
I think I'd like to hear more about the corruption of Pentagon officials ... they're probably still there.
