>Harman Vehemently Denies Bribery Allegations Allegedly Caught on NSA Tapes
[California Democratic Congresswoman] Jane Harman says she never offered to help a "suspected Israeli agent" in exchange for the agent lobbying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a key chairmanship for Harman.
[California Democratic Congresswoman] Jane Harman vehemently denied on Monday allegations published in a congressional magazine that she had offered to help a "suspected Israeli agent" seek reduced charges for two men accused of espionage in exchange for the agent lobbying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a key chairmanship for Harman.
Harman, a California Democrat, was overlooked by Pelosi to head the House Intelligence Committee in 2006 when Democrats regained the majority. The post instead went to Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas.
The article published Sunday in the Congressional Quarterly anonymously quoted two former National Security Administration officials who said they read transcripts of a wiretap in which Harman was overheard in a conversation with an alleged Israeli agent being spied on by the Bush administration.

Is NSA lying about information from a wiretap?
Anyone who believes a liberal DemoRat is a fool. Just look at what Washington has been turned into — and it is all DemoRat controlled. Caveat Emptor.
She's too smart to go down quietly.
Meant to be a SARCASTIC COMMENT!!!, not to question the veracity of the "Puzzle Palace"...
Oh, well . . . since she vehemently denies, then obviously she’s innocent/sarc
Except that the two kittens are cute.
But her family Fortune couldn’t buy her the ChairITship from Bugeyes Piglousy, but now two Israeli Agents? Thats something different! The DEMORATS are just like Ralph Nader said, “CORRUPT, DECAYED, and ROTTEN TO THE VERY TOP OF THE PARTY!”
spmethin’ very fishy about this. Pelosi has had it in for Ms. Harman for some time.
Well, since it’s a “vehement” denial, it must be true. :O)
A continuing saga?:
“The U.S. Justice Department is trying to determine whether Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., got improper help from an Israeli lobbying group. Harman of California is the senior Democrat on the House intelligence committee. Time Magazine reports she may have received a boost from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee when Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wanted to remove her from the committee. Harman left a voice mail for the magazine calling any suggestions of improper conduct “irresponsible, laughable and scurrilous.” She has retained Ted Olson, the lawyer who formerly served as President George W. Bush’s solicitor general.”
I don’t think so. Pelosi et al. are throwing her under the bus for some reason.
It could be INTEL agencies taking revenge or it could be (and more likely) Pelosi et al The latter seems more likely...
Tune in tomorrow as Pelosi's world turns...
If you read the transcript of her conversation, note that they continued to quote her AFTER she hung up the phone. Thus it wasn’t her phone that they bugged, it was her office. She is being thrown under the bus by the LIBERAL Democrats. She is a Blue Dog Dem.
The wicked Queen Nancy has consulted her mirror on the wall and recieved the distressing report that there is one who yet stands in her way of becoming the “fairest of them all”!
Never made the connection. Harman has some impressive brands, but I suspect they are a shadow of the former companies. Certainly no financial incentive here.
This is all being done to take the air out of the pro Israel lobby in congress. There is a couple of storys on American Thinker about it.
Oh, we believe you. NOT!!
Shut up, you crook!
We've got you on tape.
This'll make it easier for BO to attack them, for defending themselves against Iranian nuclear genocidal hostilities!
Look for all out Israel smears 24/7 by the foolaide dispenser. (formerly known as television)
Nancy Pelosi hates Jane Harmon. Jane is from CA just like Pelosi, and Pelosi can’t stand any female competition. She wants the spotlite all to herself. Plus, Harmon is somewhat moderate on certain subjects, primarily terrorism and on Israel she is quite conservative, so Pelosi hates that too, and they have crossed swords on security issues, and on Israel. Pelosi has tried to go after Harmon before. This is try #2. She wants to get Harmon off of the Intelligence Committee (as I suspect does Obama and Rahm Emanuel) as she poses an obstacle to the Obama Admin playing Hardball with Israel as to a peace deal. Harmon would support Israel and argue against any moves against her. Therefore Jane must go. Certain snakes in her own party have coiled around Harmon, and I hope she is able to fight them off before they squeeze the life’s blood out of her.
Jane, you ignorant slut...
Yes. This wouldn't lead Pravda (aka NYT) unless the topmost Party operatives wanted to put a political bullet into her.
this is exactly why dems are so against nsa wiretaps. their corruption could be found out!
