Rep. Jane Harman and AIPAC
In Congressional Quarterly, Jeff Stein details Rep. Jane Harman's possible corruption and ethics breach:
Jane Harman, the California Democrat with a longtime involvement in
intelligence issues, was overheard on an NSA wiretap telling a
suspected Israeli agent that she would lobby the Justice Department to
reduce espionage-related charges against two officials of the American
Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the most powerful pro-Israel
organization in Washington.
Harman was recorded saying she would
"waddle into" the AIPAC case "if you think it'll make a difference,"
according to two former senior national security officials familiar
with the NSA transcript.
And now Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has asked that Harman be investigated immediately.
