Did the Dems Get Caught by NSA Wiretaps!!

Maybe we’re looking in the wrong direction on this whole NSA issue. I can’t help but think that for the Dems to go to such lengths, there has to be some campaign money in it for them. Just like they pander to the far left whackos I.E. Moveon.org, maybe they also have to protect themselves as well as pander to some of their big money supporters who may not want their overseas calls monitored by the Bush administration.

This is just a first attempt to connect some dots, but it is interesting. Let’s start with Judge Robertson and the Clintons.

From Newsmax As Accuracy in Media noted in 2000, Judge Roberston’s conscience wasn’t particularly troubled by the crimes committed by one-time Clinton Deputy Attorney General Webb Hubbell.

In two cases involving Hubbell, AIM reported, “Judge James Robertson threw out a tax charge and another for lying to federal investigators. Appellate courts overruled in both cases, and Hubbell then plead guilty to felonies in each case.”

Judge Robertson’s conscience also seemed to go AWOL when it came to the case of Archie Schaffer, an executive with Tyson Chicken - the company that had showered Mr. Clinton with campaign contributions and helped steer Mrs. Clinton to her commodities market killing.

Recently, Judge Robertson has acquired membership to the Council for Court Excellence Executive Committee where we find some of his old pals from Wilmer Cutler Pickering. Robertson was with Wilmer Cutler Pickering before Clinton appointed him.

Wilmer Cutler Pickering, now goes by the name of WilmerHale. The Law Firm is involved in everything and with everyone from Banks, VC’s, the SEC, Pharm, etc.

We are more than 1,000 lawyers strong, with offices in 13 cities in the United States, Europe and Asia. Our practice includes over 350 litigators with unmatched trial, appellate and Supreme Court experience; a regulatory practice that includes more than 100 lawyers who have held high-level government positions; an intellectual property practice enriched by the expertise of more than 120 attorneys and technology specialists who hold scientific or technical degrees; over 250 seasoned corporate transactional lawyers and business counselors; and hundreds of other lawyers who focus on bankruptcy, environmental, labor and employment, private client, real estate and tax matters.

While all of the media attention has been focused on Abronoff, little has been paid to the Congressman from New Orleans.

The Nigerian Tribune FBI’s raid on Atiku’s home: US lawmaker’s aide opens up A former aide to Representative Jefferson William, Bret Pfeffer, has shed light on alleged money laundering and illegal business deal between Jefferson and Vice President Atiku Abubakar, as he pleaded guilty to being the man behind the deal, during a court proceeding in US recently.

According to the report, Pfeffer had told a US court that another congressman whom he only identified as Representative “A” had lobbied high ranking officials in Nigeria and Ghana to export a technology developed by a small US based telecommunication company to their countries.

The congressman told Pfeffer, according to the court documents, that “a member of Representative A’s family should perform the legal work to further the Nigerian deal” and be put on the payroll of the newly formed investment company for $2,500 to $5,000 per month.

When the group met again at a law firm to consummate the deal, the congressman approached Pfeffer in the lobby and demanded a 5 to 7 percent share of the new company, the documents say.

In July 2005, the documents say, the group sought to pursue a similar arrangement in Ghana. That month, Pfeffer, Representative A, an unnamed member of the congressman’s family and a member of the congressional staff travelled to Ghana, a time period that coincides with Jefferson’s visit to the West African nation. Pfeffer reported back regularly to the investor in the United States about progress during the trip, according to the documents.

“Pfeffer observed Representative A meeting with various high-level Ghanaian government officials to promote the Ghana deal,” documents say. “Pfeffer was also present when Representative A met with officials of the Ex-Im Bank in Washington, D.C., to further promote the Ghana deal.”

Later, the documents say, Representative A told Pfeffer that “a member of (his) extended family” would serve as secretary of the newly created Ghana company and would handle marketing.

I just think this is an excellent post. Who were the three dem senators who went over to Iraq before the war, and decided there where WMDs?

Wonder if they made any calls to any terrorists?

Wonder if there are any politicians in California who've been having conversations with terrorists south of the border?

This would be good to know...;-D

Here's more news on Congressman William Jefferson of New Orleans:
