Pelosi was Briefed on Harman's Wire Tap
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
says she was briefed several years ago that Rep. Jane Harman
(D-CA) had shown up in a wiretap. Pelosi denies that she was pressured by Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban
to appoint Harman chair of the House Intelligence Committee
But then at the end of the interview, Pelosi says that Harman did not get the job
because of internal term limits. She said, "The only reason Jane was not chosen is because she already had two terms. It had nothing to do with wiretaps or Iraq
Iraq? Who said anything about Iraq? The accusation was that Harman was to be rewarded for getting off the hook two career employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee
who are being tried for espionage.
Makes you wonder what Harman had to do with getting up the Iraq War
, which seems to be another strand in all this. Pelosi admitted to disagreements with major campaign funder Saban over Iraq.
Curioser and curioser.
