Jed Babbin: Rockefeller IS the source of the leak on the NSA wiretaps..will he take a polygraph?
John Batchelor program..WABC radio

Posted on 02/03/2006 8:47:20 PM PST by ken5050

Turned on the radio, happened to catch the last segment of the John Batchelor show. He was interviewing Jeb Babbin....who many of us know and respect, and read his columns. I was absolutely stunned by what Babbin just said...hadn't seen/heard it anywheres..and thought it merits reposting for your benefit....

Rockefeller called Syria. Sure he called the NYT. And he keeps his money off shore.

from macsmind (1/21/06):

" On Rockefeller like a Fly on ....

I haven't forgotten Senator Rockefeller or his plan. And neither has the DOJ. He's going to get nailed and soon.

The "hold up" over the NSA leak investigation for which he is suspect number one, is widening to include his activities in 2002, specifically his act of treason against the US to which he admitted to, but the MSM of course wouldn't report.

Last month I was going to post from this very good article that more eloquently than I outlines the exact nature of Senator John Rockefeller's treason against the United States...."

Umm-hmmm. I think the best we could hope for is for Rocky the squirrel to resign from Intel Committee. I don't hold out much optimism for Republican determination on this one.

I concur. This administration has not shown any inclination to take U.S. citizens on,,,.

Go Along to Get Along seems to be the Administration's theory with the Dems when it comes to malfeasance.

Pogo said it best: We have met the enemy, and it is US

I agree. They are both trying to destroy freedom, America and Western civilization.

"Is there even the remotest chance he will be held accountable in the slightest way for any of this?"


The entire Democratic party and the so called main stream media are all actively commiting treason on a daily basis as far as I'm concerned.

If a Senator instructed a member of his or her staff to leak classified information the Senator is the leaker!

You can say that again. The perp MUST be held accountable. We all know full well, that if a Republican broke the law, they'd be held accountable. I'm sick of the one-sided justice in this country.

Whoever did this has put this country at risk.

Jed Babbin/John Batchelor Ping!!!! They replay the Friday show on Sirius radio Sat: 9a-noon EST and Sunday 8a-11am. I think FX replays it over the weekend as well.
Jed Babbin has bigtime credibility in my book and did not sparse his words. Estimated DOJ will be moving hard on this in three months time, with the staffs of Rockefeller and Durbin in the cross-hairs.

I thought there was an investigation of Rockefeller going on regarding this matter, but since I haven't read anything about it in a while, maybe Republicans didn't push the issue.

Hatred toward Bush is much stronger than Patriotism. The bitter Hatred clouds making the right decision to protect us against future terrorism.

My bet is that Jay will take the fall. Its universally acknowledged on the Hill (and by those who have had personal contact with him!) he is not very bright and therefore is a good partisan point man. Co-chair of Senate Intel is not a big plus come re-election time. There are not big pots of money that can be siphoned in WV to bribe constituents . Most WV'ers don't even know Jaybird co-chairs that committee ! Also isn't his committee term about up? So taking a bullet for the team is not a big loss for the DemoDummies. His seat also viewed as a safe democrat seat. Jay could take a dump on the American flag on the 50 yard line during half time at Mountaineer field in Morgantown and a majority of WV'ers would rationalize it away & re-elect him.

Rockefeller's pointing at the executive branch (a.k.a. WH) seemed to me completely gratuitous. He gave no reason whatsoever for his allegation.

A clumsy attempt at misdirection, IMO. That, instead, drew more attention to him.

did anyone hear Mark Levin tonight? I caught a few minutes..He was discussing some memomrandum that a Cinto DoJ atty wrote in 1994 ( and the guy has now written something attacking Bush about the NSA wiretaps)back then he said that the president.( Clinton) has the absolute authority to IGNORE any act of Congress that impedes his constitutional authority...anyone have any info?

I would guess that the memorandum related to the search of Aldrich Ames' residence.

In a little-remembered debate from 1994, the Clinton administration argued that the president has "inherent authority" to order physical searches -- including break-ins at the homes of U.S. citizens -- for foreign intelligence purposes without any warrant or permission from any outside body. Even after the administration ultimately agreed with Congress's decision to place the authority to pre-approve such searches in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court, President Clinton still maintained that he had sufficient authority to order such searches on his own.

"The Department of Justice believes, and the case law supports, that the president has inherent authority to conduct warrantless physical searches for foreign intelligence purposes," Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on July 14, 1994, "and that the President may, as has been done, delegate this authority to the Attorney General."

Clinton Claimed Authority to Order No-Warrant Searches
Byron York - December 20, 2005 <- Summary of Ames Investigation <- GAO Report on "data sharing"

Note the date on the "data sharing" report.

The clock's not on the administration, it's on the Dems considering whether they can exploit a domestic spying lawbreaking accusation by the midterm elections. The Dem leadership knows who leaked it, and that the identity of the leak card will be played by the administration exactly when they need to accentuate their reason for not obtaining a warrant - leakers will compromise the program and thereby deprive us of valuable intelligence. Exposing Jay would be good if they did it now, but it would be better if they did it just as the Dems are at their most indignant over the administration's assertion that vital programs would be compromised by those who have decided to go to war against our war on terrorism.

thought it was odd that he brought it up too. I'm trying to remember various exchanges from that hearing given this news and what I keep coming back to is Rockefeller's last statement, which followed Roberts odd comment

His comments followed Rockefeller's .. but I can't remember exactly what

Hey OXENinFLA .... I can't seem to find the transcript of this Senate Intel Hearing ... do you know where I can find it???
