Harman on NPR: Dodges questions but slips up
Once again thanks to Juan Cole for the heads up. Jane Harman, the Rep being accused of taking bribes from Israeli spies was on NPR yesterday to talk about the situation.
She was in full plausible deniability mode. She kept asserting that she didn't know if such phone calls with the Israeli agent existed. She's not denying the existence of such calls. She's saying that wants to know what the NSA has on her before she says whether or not the phone calls existed. Yeah. That sounds like an innocent person. If she admits to wrongdoing A, but the NSA recorded her performing wrongdoing B then suddenly she's on the hook for A+B instead of just B.
Then she slipped up. (Transcript from CQ)
MR. SIEGEL: But, indeed, if what happened was, initially, your phone wasn't tapped; the person you were talking with was being tapped. And if that was an investigation of a foreign agent, is it realistic to think that anybody is going to release a completely unredacted transcript of that conversation?
She knows exactly what conversation she was having because she knows it was an American citizen. Kudos to Siegel for pressing her on that slip up! As Juan Cole points out, "an American citizen recruited by Mossad would still be an Israeli spy or agent, run by an Israeli field officer." Her flimsy attempt to cover her slip doesn't save her.
I hope this investigation lands on her quickly. If she is innocent, then I'll be happy to apologize, but it is far more likely that she's guilty. If she is found guilty then I want to see her removed from Congress and imprisoned. Our government is controlled by corrupt politicians and lobbies and we need to find a way to stop it.
