What a surprise!

'Oily' French Bank Taps Ex-Bubba Atty:
The French bank at the center of the United Nations' Iraq oil-for-food program has hired President Clinton's lawyer in the Paula Jones sex-harassment case to help it deal with numerous investigations into the financial scandal, The Post has learned.

Super-lawyer Bob Bennett has joined a politically influential legal and lobbying team being assembled by the French bank BNP Paribas, which is facing intensifying scrutiny on Capitol Hill and elsewhere over its handling of the bulk of the $100 billion worth of oil-for-food transactions, officials close to the giant financial institution said last night.
Bobby better get cracking - more of those pesky coverup letters keep turning up!
