I think an Obama supporter in either the Justice Dept or the FBI tipped off the Obama camp before they made a deal with Blago. That said, it may be that Rahm Emmanuel could be guilty of something by even taking part in such discussions without informing the Feds. Knowledge of corruption and not reporting it is a crime.
He was at the courthouse in Chicago yesterday. My first thought: shredding documents. And he wouldn’t answer any questions.
I have no doubt they called this thing before it got any deeper, likely because it was getting dangerous for Obama. Question is, who in the Chicago district is perhaps not fully onboard with Fitzgerald and compromising his investigation?
BINGO! We have a winner. Tell me this timeline is just coincidence:
Fitzpatrick gets wiretap subpoena from Federal judge. Gets tons of juicy data including the Obama team trying to setup a deal.
Federal judges are the dominion of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Our friend Patrick "Leaky" Leahy, a proven squawkbox of confindential information, meets with Obama's future AG appointee Eric Holder. Leahy leaks to Holder that a Federal judge has authorized a wiretap of Blago.
Holder informs Obama and guess what? In the next 24 hours, the Obama camp pulls back from Blago, the story is leaked to the press, and Obama's pick Jarret starts claiming she never wanted the job.
The next day Blago is arrested because Fitz realizes his investigation has been compromised by "someone."
My guess is Fitz is REALLY pissed off and if you thought Scooter got a whipping, wait until he finds out who blew his stakeout.
