No consequences for Bush Jr?
When Bill Clinton, "the man from Hope," took the White House one of the things he did not put on his agenda was a serious investigation into the vast criminal enterprise operated by George Bush, Sr. that went by the name Iran/Contra.
Bush Sr. who belonged in jail on many counts walked away scott free.
Since Clinton left the White House, it's obvious that he and Bush Sr. are the best of friends playing golf together and posing for numerous photo ops.

The term of art for these kinds of operations is a "bust out."
The scam works as follows: an organized crime group takes over a business, borrows as much as it can in the business' name, fails to pay vendors and then disappears with all the cash.
The Bush family and its associates in organized crime and the CIA have figured out how to run this scam on a multi-hundred billion dollar level using the entire US banking system as its playground.
When you consider that Reagan was probably out of it from Day One of his term and that Bill Clinton is a close associate of George Bush Sr., the Bush crime syndicate has been influencing when not outright running the executive branch continuously since 1980, which, perhaps not so coincidentally, marks the earliest days of the credit bubble the economy is now having serious trouble digesting.
In 1992, an obscure governor from an economically backward state became president of the
To be sure, he was intelligent, charismatic, and had a well organized campaign.
He promised "change" from the disastrous fours year of the Bush Sr. administration.
In fact, he and George Bush Sr. were friends and colleagues long before they ran against each other, a fact obscured by the media.
As president, Clinton:
