CNN: PAGE LAWYER DOES NOT RULE 'IN OR OUT' PRANK CLAIM... DEVELOPING... Former congressional page Jordan Edmund's lawyer Stephen Jones... BLITZER: He will join us live in the next hour. What are you hearing, Brian, about some of these Internet suggestions, some Republicans suggesting this whole thing is a prank, a hoax and there is no there, there.

CNN REPORTER: "We asked him about that item in the DRUDGE REPORT. He said very clearly he cannot rule that in, he cannot rule that out. He says he is not saying it was not a prank but later in the interview, CNN pressed him on that. He said that he -- he does not read the DRUDGE REPORT, not part of his regular reading and, quote, it sounds like a piece of fiction...

BLITZER: He says the DRUDE REPORT item sounds like a piece of fiction?

CNN REPORTER: He did say that, but important to note he says he is not ruling it in or out.

IT WAS NOT A PRANK!!!!! You don't hire Stephen Jones because you did a PRANK.

There's a new thread about a woman, Robin Kastaros (sp) who is supposedly writing a BOOK about Pages.....and her GAY son was a Page to Pelosi and her Husband, John is an INTERNET SECURITY EXPERT...HACK...HACK!!!

IOW, it's a prank, and he's doing the Miranda dance. No way he's gonna incriminate his client, except with an immunity deal in hand.

Ab~sooooo~lute~leeeee

The lawyer has been hired to make sure his client gets all his rights. Last thing he's going to do is admit the guy is guilty of a half dozen crimes.

Likely. Why else does the "victim" page need a famous DEFENSE lawyer? Does not compute otherwise. The lawyer said he couldn't say *why* he was hired but said, 'you've read the IMs, you known why he needs a lawyer.'

For those playing along at home: IOW = In Other Words.

Jones may be doing this pro bono. That he's a criminal defense lawyer, however, sure speaks volumes.

Actually, that part does compute, regardless of what actually happened.

This "victim" has seen enough of Washington to know that if there's an investigation and you're involved, you need to lawyer-up right away.

If it's a prank, he's really gonna need a lawyer -- but the mere fact of an investigation is reason enough to hire him.

From what been said I think it is a pretty clear that this ex page is not gay. Yet, he is engaing in gay sex talk. That leads to believe that this was a "prank" unless I am missing something

If it's not a prank, Jordan is gay. Seems pretty simple to me.

If he's not, no way will Jordy let that impression stand. This is gonna be interesting.

What really bugs me is that it is CNN breaking this part of the story, not Fox! The lawyer just spoke. Said he was talking to Wolf because he's such a responsible journalist. OMG!

Jordan Edmund wrote sexual IMs to Foley or in response to Foley.

Edmund says he is NOT gay.

He needs to make up his mind, either he IS gay or it IS a prank.

It may be a prank but let's consider that this gives him major exposure and since Ok City and the execution he's not been much in the national media spotlight. This is a case that could end unified Republican control--it's HUGH. Lawyers are just as whorish as politicians, not surprise there are so many of the former also as the later.

Jones handles many areas of the law, not just criminal defense. Perhaps it is his familiarity with high profile cases that they used him.

BLITZER: He says the DRUDE REPORT item sounds like a piece of fiction?

Wolf Blitzer wants to be able to sleep tonight thinking that the "Prank Story" is a piece of fiction according to Jordan lawyer and hence the story is not dead. The CNN reporter is not giving Wolf Blitzer the rest of mind that he wants.

So far I don't even think anyone has accused Foley of a crime, but I know there are some very nervous people behind this story. I hope anyone who held onto this story spends every penny he has on lawyers and hates taking "the oath" before TV cameras.

But Jones? Something smells.

Agreed, that's pretty high-powered. But put yourself in this guy's place.

He's THE central figure in a high-profile scandal, and you've got to know that the all of the other folks will be coming after him with their big guns. If he's smart, he's going to start out with the best guy he can find.

It makes a great deal of sense to me.

Now that "prank" has raised its ugly head, it only makes it more imperative to have a top lawyer; but it was imperative anyway.
