Jane Harman-- Israeli Agent? Bush Shill?


Americans need to know where Harman's loyalties lie

Don't be surprised. There are many reasons we've been opposing slimy Blue Dog Jane Harman since 2006. Jeff Stein at CQPolitics broke the story early this morning. If you haven't spent your day watching a gaggle of Fox propaganda agents talking about Obama's handshakes and fascism, you've probably heard about it. Harman "was overheard on an NSA wiretap telling a suspected Israeli agent that she would lobby the Justice Department reduce espionage-related charges against two officials of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the most powerful pro-Israel organization in Washington." The Bush Regime agreed to cover-up the result of their eavesdropping in return for Harman's steadfast support of... illegal eavesdropping and other unconstitutional Bush Regime policies. Now the hackish Harman professes to be shocked that she would be wiretapped. I guess she wasn't paying attention to what she was helping Bush perpetrate on the American people. Why hasn't she resigned yet?
[C]ontrary to reports that the Harman investigation was dropped for "lack of evidence," it was Alberto R. Gonzales, President Bush's top counsel and then attorney general, who intervened to stop the Harman probe.

Why? Because, according to three top former national security officials, Gonzales wanted Harman to be able to help defend the administration's warrantless wiretapping program, which was about break in The New York Times and engulf the White House.

As for there being "no evidence" to support the FBI probe, a source with firsthand knowledge of the wiretaps called that "bullshit."

"I read those transcripts," said the source, who like other former national security officials familiar with the transcript discussed it only on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of domestic NSA eavesdropping.

TPM has put together a very detailed and revealing timeline of everything that happened in this scandal that could send Rep. Harman to prison. And the video of Stein on Countdown this evening certainly makes it all crystal clear:

And now we see why Pelosi refused to let Harman become chair of the House Intelligence Committee. Harman should retire from politics. I hope Marcy Winograd has kept in touch with her supporters.

Hey Jane, karma is a bitch -- don't think for a second that we don't remember you supporting FISA!
