Well, it wasn't cattle futures
Presidential brother and S&L criminal Neil Bush made a tidy $798,218 trading stocks in a small high-tech company where he was a "consultant", including a single-day profit of over $170,000. Says Bush:
"Any increase in the price of the stock on that day was purely coincidental, meaning that I did not have any improper information," Bush said in e-mails to The Associated Press. "My timing on this transaction was very fortunate."

Now, I recall the outright disbelief on the part of many right wing pundits when Hillary Clinton gave a similar explanation about how she'd made a $100,000 profit on trading cattle futures. Somehow I suspect a similar level of outrage about this deal will be striking by its absence.
