The Coming Storm - Rep. William Jefferson

How about this. Democratic Congressman William Jefferson, has got his ass in a sling for sure. He can deny all the wants (Democratic trait of sorts), but it's on film at eleven. As Perry Mason used to say, "Case closed, Della, get the car!"

Therefore the only question now is not about WHEN he is going down, but who he will take with him when he goes.

"A congressman under investigation for bribery was caught on videotape accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded, according to a court document released Sunday. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer.

At one audiotaped meeting, Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., chuckles about writing in code to keep secret what the government contends was his corrupt role in getting his children a cut of a communications company's deal for work in Africa."


Of course the article can't help bringing retiring Rep. Tom Delay and his problems into it. Notice you never see the MSM mention a Democrat's issues when discussing a Republican?

"The Jefferson investigation has provided fodder for Republicans who have suffered black eyes in the investigations of current and former GOP lawmakers, including Tom DeLay and Randy "Duke" Cunningham."

Whatever. However, note that Jefferson basically said he will leave off only kicking and screaming, while Delay simply and immediately stepped down. Who's your character baby!

But I digress.

However, this will be a huge scandal for the Democrats as while many think this is just another corrupt Louisianna politician with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar fact is that there are only far more reaching activities involved.

You will remember that Jefferson commandeered National Guard resources so he could get to his house the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina simply so he could hide evidence. In my book anyone one who would sell out his fellow man in a time of need has serious and long standing character defects. One source told me that Jefferson's case cast a wide net.

We're about to find out how wide.

"Mr. Conyers line one"

UPDATE: What is is with Democrats and Africa?

UPDATE II: The Scandal grows. Jefferson digs in.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
