"Wolfowitz’s lawyer points fingers."

A World Bank committee investigating President Paul Wolfowitz has nearly completed a report “concluding that he breached ethics rules when he engineered a pay raise for his girlfriend.” The bank’s board will consider the report on Monday. Wolfowitz’s laywer, Robert Bennett, charged, “The board, through these unreasonable and unfair actions, can’t create a fake crisis and say he has to leave because he’s hurting the bank. They’re the ones who are hurting the bank. Even those people opposed to Mr. Wolfowitz will see how outrageous this is.”
