“On January 18, 2001, two days before he [former CEO of Halliburton, Vice President-elect Dick Cheney] took the oath of office, he and his wife [Lynne] signed an irrevocable ‘gift of trust agreement,’ in which they divested ‘themselves of any and all economic benefit’ from the stock options [that were deferred payments from Halliburton]. As part of the agreement, Cheney had agreed to donate any profits from his stock options–then valued at about $8 million–to charity.”

 – Stephen F. Hayes, Cheney, Page 437
