Congresswomen Harman Caught on Wiretap

Hosted by

New developments have resurrected a three-year-old story about LA Democratic Congresswoman Jane Harman. In 2006, it was reported that the FBI was investigating whether she and AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, violated the law in a scheme to get Harman appointed top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. Subsequently, the case was dropped. Yesterday, Congressional Quarterly reported that Harman was overheard on an National Security Agency wiretap. Jeff Stein, who writes the CQ column “Spy Talk,” broke the story.
