From a previous FR reply of mine, behind which I stand, of course:

W. Va. Senator John D. Rockefeller, Democratic Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, someone who is absolutely in a position to know the truth about the matter, when asked on Fox News Sunday June 22, 2003, whether he'd heard any evidence to suggest President Bush lied regarding Iraqi WMD intelligence reports said, "No, I have not."

When asked why John Kerry was intimating Bush had lied, Rockefeller basically said, "Kerry is running for president. His agenda is not the same as mine."

This might suggest that Jay was stupid for letting himself appear to change his views so dramatically later.

It's my impression that his response at that time on FNS was genuine, but Democrats came down hard on him quickly thereafter for being so out of sync with their leaders' plans. I think, therefore, Jay doesn't really run that show.

I wouldn't be at all surprised that it's a Mellon-via-BillyJeff/McAwful run show.

"Aids to Rockefeller" as authors doesn't sound like anything in my experience within the beltway. (All right, I admit, about the only thing I've ever run in DC is my computer.)

I agree. For a Senator to allow his position on this most important committee to become politicized, there had to be considerable outside influence = Clinton.

Think of the 'objection' that the Judicial committee had to Miguel Estrada. The dems kept demanding Estrada's files from his work in the (Clinton) administration. It was clear to me that Bill and Hillary knew as fact that there were some Estrada written opinions that could be spun to render him 'unsuitable.'

There was no other reason to keep hammering on that one note.

****

We must never underestimate the vileness of the Clintons.
