The billionaire backer of a wireless company accused of using White House connections to interfere with a Pentagon commander’s congressional testimony last week emphatically rejected that and other charges relating to the embattled firm on Monday.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, private equity titan Phil Falcone – the chief investor in LightSquared, a Virginia-based firm aiming to establish a new wireless broadband network – rejected as “absolutely false” allegations that LightSquared had obtained in advance the written testimony of Air Force Gen.

I'm absolutely SHOCKED he would disavow the charges. You don't suppose Obozo will do the same, do you??

Here's how the Chicago Way liberals think: If they tell a lie and it can't be proved that it's a lie - they think it's the same as telling the truth. These are the people who think ‘right and wrong’ is based on the size of the audience. If not one saw the theft, then it ‘didn't happen’.

I think this will be a bigger scandal than the solar company.

I’m getting confused...

Is this the thing about the destruction of our GPS for cash,, or the solar panel con game for cash? Did they sleep in the Lincoln bed room? Wait, er, what?

You guys are just racist!

Yup, sounds to me like the new ethics of DC.

If Diogenese were to be searching for an ethical person in this administration, searching with a lantern, he would need a super tanker load of fuel perhaps to finally locate one.

Cavuto interviewed him too. Pretty much gave him a pass. You know - everybody does it.

Bigger?? Who knows? Does it matter?

No one is going to do anything about it.

Obama is like Superman . The Media has the kryptonite, but they won’t use it because they are both on the side of American destruction.

To just about everything Megan asked him, he would state that the bit of information was misinformation. It was afternoon comedy.
