Bush administration killed criminal probe of Democrat

leave a comment »

The Congressional Quarterly has reported that U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, a California Democrat, offered to intervene into a probe of suspected Israeli intelligence in return for help getting a committee chairmanship, then concluded the discussion before hanging up by saying “This conversation doesn’t exist.”

President Bush’s attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, killed an investigation into Harman because Bush needed her to help publicly defend warrantless wiretapping, the article says.

Harman is denying all.
