    Wiretap.

    I think the Executive Branch's job was performed successfully. No, seriously, what the **** else do you want?

    Edit: Maybe he should have announced it on television, blown the whole investigation? Spooked Blago into keeping that idiocy off the phone?

    Re: Harris: Obama knew of Blagojevich plot

    From the same article.

    Obama's 2008 internal report about his staff's contacts with Blagojevich at the time indicates that Balanoff relayed to Jarrett that Blagojevich was interested in a Health and Human Services Cabinet post.
    So he relayed that he interested.

    And how is that illegal?

    And what is this all about?

    Harris said Blagojevich came away believing Obama knew what he wanted after having a conversation with a local union representative, who in turn spoke with labor leader Tom Balanoff, with whom Blagojevich met to discuss a Jarrett appointment. Jarrett, now a White House adviser, was seeking the appointment to Obama's Senate seat.
    How is this not heresay?

    Harris is testifying under a plea agreement, so the only way it can go poorly for Harris is if he isn't telling the truth.

    Yes I know and depending on the conditions of his plea the State could take away the plea agreement. It also will be a shot to his creditability.

    Or maybe he should simply claim ignorance, like he did about ayers, wright, or any other time he gets caught off guard.

    What did he know, and when did he know it? Time for a Special Prosecutor to look into the Obama Corruption.
    He "believed" he knew?

    I thought I remember reading that one of the main sources that gave information against Blogjevich was Rahm Emmanuel. Seems kind of strange to have the White House working to remove the guy while being a part of some unnamed conspiracy theory one guy has without any proof.

    No.

    It is not illegal to fail to report a crime. It's only illegal if you participate or actively mislead the police or otherwise take action to prevent the person from being brought to justice. Doing nothing is not illegal.

    Re: Harris: Obama knew of Blagojevich plot

    Now wait, I'm confused....

    Third Party heresay spoken to a reporter from a notoriously anti-war magazine by an unnamed source should be grounds for the dimissal of a General during a time of war.

    however

    We're supposed to ignore and write off as useless and not worth paying attention to the third party heresay spoken under oath in a trial that paints the president in a negative light.

    Gotcha.

    So when do we impeach Obama?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
