    The two are now being interviewed by the FBI here in their Louisville office.

    Hopefully they are sweating their little butts off.

But he did say before providing more on the DNC stance, he wanted to wait to make sure it was these two that had been identified before saying anything more.
    Good evening Pero - hope all is well.

    If you think about it, if it isn't a crime for a third party to tape a conversation between two other parties, it wouln't be necessary for the police to get a wiretap warrant to do just that.

    This isn't in a way the samething as the plumbers during Nixon planting a bug in the DNC headquarters. These guys planted no bugs, but they stood outside a closed door recording the goings on with an I-Phone as I understand it, which is basically the same thing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yes, and now there is speculation that Mother Jones could be in trouble.

    Don't forget the decoder ring. Then there was the x-ray vision glasses. You got these things from the bottom of a cereal box or had to order them from the back of a Comic book.

    It depends on how they placed the listening devices. If they broke in, it's breaking and entering and trespassing.

    Aw, when life was good, and we were allowed to play with toy guns and never heard of little children actually killing playmates with real guns. Maybe we do little boys a disservice by not allowing them to play as little boys used to play and they search out their parent's real weapons instead of their own toy guns.

    Apparently there were skunks, or moles, in the woodpile...they admitted they tape recorded McConnell's strategy sessions.
