There is no suggestion that the myriad connections between the administration of President Bush and Enron were illegal.
The corporation had close relations with many Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
Links exist between Enron and the current administration at all levels – personal, social, financial, professional and political.
Political rivals of President Bush have said, however, that the sheer volume of links between the administration and Enron may build up a highly damaging perception of guilt by association.
According to reports, 35 administration officials have held Enron stock – some had six figure investments. Several, less senior officials, have served as paid consultants for Enron.
The White House has given lawmakers access to thousands of pages of secret documents relating to Enron.
