White House Refuses to Release Bush/Abramoff Pictures

The White House has found photographs -- in their collections -- of President Bush with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. But the Bush administration refuses to release them.

The White House says the pictures are not relevant to the ongoing corruption investigation swirling around Mr Abramoff and his connections since he pleaded guilty to corruption charges.

TIME magazine reported over the weekend that their reporters had seen five photos of Mr Bush with Mr Abramoff -- but their source would not allow their publication.

Meanwhile, ThinkProgress suggests TIME's source could be none other than Mr Abramoff himself. They suggest he's shopping the photos around to the highest bidder in the publishing world. (WashPost)
