BP Attempts To Buy Off Government Officials

Alex Seitz-Wald, ThinkProgress: "Facing possible jail time for their roles in the largest oil spill in American history, BP and Halliburton are building high-powered legal teams with 'deep Department of Justice and White House ties.'

The federal government gave a lowball figure of 12,000 to 19,000 barrels a day gushing out of the well. Then, BP puts this cap on and claims they are getting 10,000 barrels a day.
