BS, he may not be an official ‘target’ but he IS a complicit subject.

He may not be a target, but he’s been caught in the crossfire.

Hopefully he’s not the target because they want to “trade up”.

I will stand by my earlier prediction:

Fitz will not touch anyone in the Obama camp. Simple politics. You don't do anything to hurt your new boss even if it is required that you overlook what would seem to you and I as obvious criminal activity by Emanuel. I expect JJJ to survive as well.

Was he wearing dark glasses, an earpiece and trying not to smirk???

Because maybe he turned Blago in?

Anyways...be careful of believing all these leaks from investigations, how often have they been wrong in the last dozen years?

I remember the days when the left actually went after Nedra Pickler for fair and honest reporting. She's actually quite intelligent and a good reporter. But I guess they got to her, or maybe her bosses at AP did, because she's joined the left wing pimp club just like all the rest of them.

Isn’t Rahm Emanuel close to RE? Just curious.

Exactly. Fitz is probably working on a way to throw GWB in prison for something or the other.

Emanuel pleading fatherhood and death threats. Poor thing. He had no words of comfort for Ken Starr, who as far as I know never bribed anyone.

I heard it ‘spalined this way. A target means you are getting ready to be indicted, a person of interest means that are looking at making you a target.
