    The Justice Department has launched a criminal investigation into whether Democratic Senators Dick Durbin, Jay Rockefeller and Ron Wyden leaked details about a secret "black ops" CIA satellite program last December in a move that may have seriously compromised national security, former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense Jed Babbin said on Saturday. "The CIA made a request to the Justice Department to investigate and possibly bring criminal charges against these three [senators]," Babbin told WABC Radio host Monica Crowley. "My information is that investigation is ongoing." Mr. Rockefeller is the Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and Mr. Durbin is...

    So, whatever happened to the "secret" Democratic memos from the Intelligence Committee that that Republican staffer discovered? You know, the ones that showed the Dems' willingness to disrupt the War on Terror just so they could do a hatchet job on Bush? This issue seems to have dropped off the radar. And while I'm at it, let me just drag up ol' "secret docs in sox" Sandy Burglar, just to keep things current there too.

    The "nuclear" showdown that is expected to begin unfolding in the Senate today has its origins in closed-door discussions more than three years ago between key Senate Democrats and outside interest groups as they huddled to plot strategies for blocking President Bush's judicial nominees. In a Nov. 7, 2001, internal memo to Sen. Richard J. Durbin, who is now the minority whip, an aide described a meeting that the Illinois Democrat had missed between groups opposed to Mr. Bush's nominees and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat and member of the Judiciary Committee. "Based on input from the groups, I...

    On November 5, 2003, Americans were given an unprecedented look inside the Democrats' war, when Fox News published an astoundingly revealing memorandum from within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, describing how Democrats on the Committee intend to use their positions, influence, and access to information - not to help win the war on terror, or to protect American citizens - but to undermine the Bush Administration. The memo describes their agreement to launch an "independent investigation" as a means to that end, timed to coincide with the 2004 presidential campaign.Read the memo on intelmemo.com On January 15, 2004 The...

    So far, the secret Democrat strategy to win the presidential election seems to be going according to plan. The plan leaked out in a memo from the Senate Intelligence Committee, written by a staff member for Sen. Jay Rockefeller, exploring how Democrats could exploit the inquiry into pre-war intelligence for political gain. Rather than answer questions about why they would employ such underhanded tricks, the Democrats set out to discover who leaked the memo.

    America is at war. We are at war against the network of international terrorists who committed the mass murders of 9/11. We are at war against the survivors of Saddam Hussein's regime, and against the remnants of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Americans have died, and continue to die in this struggle. The leadership of the Democratic Party is also at war. However, their war is against President George W. Bush. And this war is the highest priority of Democratic decision-makers -- even within the traditionally nonpartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. On November 5, 2003, Americans were given an unprecedented...

    Manuel Miranda, the Senate staffer who until today was Majority Leader Bill Frist's top adviser on judicial nominations, has left his post with a massive parting blast that should put to shame Judiciary Chairman Orrin Hatch. The substance of his contentions — that Democratic senators engaged in violations of the public trust that may be legally actionable — makes Hatch's utter capitulation to Democrat demands look craven by comparison. Miranda's letter to the Senate ethics committee, drafted earlier this week and delivered this morning, alleges that a series of Democratic memoranda that were not (and have not been) leaked will...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Last week Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) and Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, questioned the commitment of the administration and the Justice Department to pursue the investigation into the alleged leak of a CIA officer's identity earlier in the year. In a letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft, the pair asked that he provide "an overall status of the investigation, including the number of people the Justice Department has interviewed, the number of briefings you have received, the general types of information you are briefed on, what conditions...

    "Four things belong to a judge: to hear courteously, to answer wisely, to consider soberly and to decide impartially." -- Socrates, 470-399 B.C. A devastating memo written by a Democratic member of the staff of the U.S. Senate's Select Committee on Intelligence and leaked to Fox News is now creating a furor on Capitol Hill. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is charged with protecting the nation's most guarded secrets. The members of that panel have the nation's highest security clearance. Much of the sensitive information they review is for their eyes only and is off limits even to the...

    <p>Recently, several memos drafted by Senate Democrats have been leaked to the press. One memo, from the Intelligence Committee, exposes a Democrat plan to use the awesome power and resources of that committee as a political weapon against the president. The other memos detail how powerful left-wing lobbyists pressured Democrats to impermissibly oppose judicial nominations based on race and gender. Now the Democrats are outraged — because they got caught. Senate Democrats have demanded a probe into these leaks; their request has been granted by detrimentally congenial Republicans. The investigation notwithstanding, if the leakers are dismissed, they may have actionable claims against the government.</p>

    A Republican staffer on the Senate Judiciary Committee was placed on administrative leave last week in the wake of a U.S. Capitol Police investigation into the release of memos describing strategies for Democrats to use regarding judicial nominees. Committee Chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) told reporters he took the action because, "I am mortified that this improper, unethical and simply unacceptable breach of confidential files may have occurred on my watch." Democrats on the committee have expressed outrage over the memos' release to the Wall Street Journal in which their strategy to delay and defeat President Bush's judicial nominees when...
