JUDICIAL WATCH LAWSUITS AGAINST BUSH ADMINISTRATION SEEK ALL CONTACTS
BETWEEN BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND ENRON

Press Secretary Ari Fleischer Refuses To Answer Questions At Press
Conference Whether Bush Administration Is Looking Into This

Fleischer Should Consider Resigning

(Washington, D.C.) Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that
investigates and prosecutes government abuse and corruption, has filed 4
lawsuits seeking all contacts between Enron and the Bush and Clinton
Administrations, among other information.

At today’s White House Press Conference, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer
refused to answer questions whether the Bush Administration is looking
into these contacts.

A few days ago, Fleischer downplayed the need to investigate the Enron
scandal, claiming that the American people have become tired of “political
witch-hunts.”

“Fleischer’s attempt to avoid answering important questions about Enron
and his snide comment that the investigations of the Clinton scandals were
unwarranted – in order to shield the Bush Administration from similar
investigations -- is intellectually dishonest. Further, just last week he
incorrectly told the media that The White House was not called by Bush
cabinet secretaries over the Enron collapse. Fleischer’s credibility is
therefore now close to zero, and he should consider resigning,” stated
Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel, Larry Klayman.

“The American people have a right to know all the facts. If the Bush
Administration is not hiding something, then why is it stonewalling
Judicial Watch’s legitimate document requests, forcing the public interest
group to file 4 lawsuits to date, “added Klayman.

Judicial Watch will be filing a shareholders’ derivative suit in the near
future.
