Skip to comments.SENATE REPUBLICANS ACCUSE JOHN KERRY OF USING CLASSIFIED INFO STOLEN BY SANDY BERGER
Posted on 07/20/2004 1:11:47 PM PDT by gopwinsin04
SEN. SAXBY CHAMBLISS: 'Reportedly these documents are related to homeland security and then suddenly we see the Kerry campaign came forward with what may have been illegal documents. This is sensitive stuff and was a significant breach of security...Kerry knows better than to use these documents,' Chambliss says in a press conference.
SEN. GORDON SMITH: 'There is a curious connection between the removal of these documents and the Kerry press conference on port security..It's disappointing what people might do as they try and take the President down.
Kerry's Watergate. It's prison stipes for Berger and Kerry!
This is getting better by the hour. Has Kerry been seen in public today??
If Kerry himself used these classified documents for his political gain, he should go to prison as well as Sandy Berger. Actually, since we are in a state of war, and this involved national security, I would not be opposed to the death penalty for TREASON.
MORE over here..........PING
glad to see some Pubbies stand up! Oh, and thank you Georgia for electing Saxby!
Send the dorks to jail.
If the Dems want to question timing, there's some timing to question!
The timing IS suspicious ...
Why would Republicans want this to come out NOW? ... before the Dem Convention? ... Seems like timing would be MUCH better in between the DNC and the RNC conventions.
I never believed all the Hillary hoopla about her knocking off Kerry to get the nomination and push Bush on the defensive with a short campaign against an unknown popular opponent ...
but now Im starting to wonder ...
Seems like the Republicans are not responsible for the leak ... we need to know who leaked this ...
Where there is smoke...we may have a raging Kerry wildfire here!
Mrs. Murphy: Help you two?
Elwood: Do you have any white bread ma'am?
Mrs. Murphy: Yeah.
Elwood: I'll have some toasted white bread please.
Mrs. Murphy: You want butter or jam on that, honey?
Elwood: No ma'am, dry.
So is Hillary going to step in now to replace Kerry and save the day?
I hope they have some basis for suggesting the info got to the Kerry campaign. The MSM will let Dems overstate a case, but not Republicans. Everything the Reps say needs to be air-tight; if the Reps make careless allegations, THAT will become the story.
You're welcome, and maybe we'll get Herman Cain in there today or Aug 10th runoff
YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!! Someone finally came out and said it!!!
So John Edwards may be the new nominee? Or are we looking at a convention floor fight between Hillary, Dean and Edwards?
Can it get worse?
Frankly, I am afraid, very afraid of what depths of the sewer the dems will plumb.
"Actually, since we are in a state of war, and this involved national security, I would not be opposed to the death penalty for TREASON."
This is why I love free republic...not for the wishy washy, limp wristed girlie men.
We could only hope but - something tells me this whole thing will fade away as the DNC Convention gives all the network newsreaders a tingling in their drawers. The only people who will carry this story beyond the convention will be us and talk radio.
Desperate men do desperate things. Gotta admit, though, that a Prez candidate receiving stolen national security secrets is a bit of a stretch. Still, why underestimate these guys?
Hillary! must save the day.....
in general, I like it.
But I also will say - they had better be right about this, and not stretching the link to Kerry on this.
It was just mentioned in a News Max article:And then there's this tidbit: "Officials with the Bush-Cheney campaign point out that Berger gave a surprise background briefing to reporters on Feb. 27 on behalf of the Kerry campaign, in which he outlined airline security issues apparently drawn from the now-missing classified memos Berger is accused of removing from the National Archives," FNC reported.
If the "Hillary!" conspiracy theorists are right, then might as well force their hand as early as possible, rather than have her step in later in the game (post-GOP convention).
Otherwise, it's probably Edwards, who is a real lightweight and an easy mark for Dubya.
Hmmmmmmm....this is starting to make sense. Sandy steals the docs; Justice knows all about it but keeps quiet (and keeps tabs on Sandy); Querry makes public utterances that reveal knowledge of the stolen documents; Justice then begins their public investigation of Sandy while all-comers take care of Lurch.
Am I completely off base here?
I smell Hitlery's fingerprints all over this one. She will step forward by acclamation at the convention...just watch.
is their video/audio of that briefing?
What better time to have the media obsessed with Kerry scandals than during his conventions?
What better time to have the media obsessed with Kerry scandals than during his convention?
And away we go!
This is all a nefarious plot to sabotage Kerry!!
It is NO COINCIDENCE that this is all coming out RIGHT BEFORE the Convention! Sandy Berger's lawyers are issuing statements, and now the Republicans are piling on ... oblivious to the real reason for this entire exercise!
Clearly, the scandal will unfold in the next several days ... fatally damaging Kerry ... meanwhile, who has been in Europe ... far from the scene of action ... waiting for just the right moment to step in and reveal the real plan ... that's right ... BUBBA!!
Kerry -- DUMPED!!
New Nominee - Hillary!!

Maybe this is the tip of the iceberg and just the beginning of revelations. They could know that this is going to go far beyond November.
This is a takedown move by Hillary! so she can come to the rescue and be named the 'Rat nominee at the DNC Convention. This was her plan all along...
Has anyone heard of any ties back to the (in)famous Senate Intel Committee memos, which were supposed to be used for partisan purposes against the Bush administration? I wonder if all this is tied together somehow.
Unbelieveable. Not a peep in the mainstream press or TV except FNC.
Except now all the major news media has already gone on record saying they're not going to cover the conventions heavily...
I agree somewhat ... but isnt it better to let your enemy blow up his baloon and then pop it ... rather than prevent him from blowing it up ?
This article just out - it says '08 but.......
Dems seen favoring Sen. Clinton in '08

The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) Delegates to next week's Democratic National Convention already have an idea about 2008 if presidential candidate John Kerry should lose this fall: They would favor Hillary Rodham Clinton over John Edwards as their next standardbearer........
Gawd. Silly me. Make that "Let me be the tenth!..."
