If you have not heard yet, Dennis Hastert had his pants all in a wad over the FBI raid on Jefferson's office. Now, it appears we know why he was so upset, the dude is "in the mix."
Federal officials say the Congressional bribery investigation now includes Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, based on information from convicted lobbyists who are now cooperating with the government.
Well, well, well. This story is getting qutie a twist.
Never fear, we have a few more twists to navigate before we get all caught up. For instance, the DOJ has denied any investigation into Dennis Hastert. That statement doesn't mean diddly. Why? Some other federal sources say that Hastert isn't under a "formal" investigation, but he is under a wide-spread investigation stemming from the singing of Jack Abramoff.
Whether they like it or not, members of Congress, including Hastert, are under investigation," one federal official said tonight.
The investigation of Hastert’s relationship with Abramoff is in the early stages, according to these officials, and could eventually conclude that Abramoff’s information was unfounded.
Officials said the next logical investigative step would be for the FBI to seek a wide range of documents from the members of Congress named by Abramoff, including letters and business documents.
So, why did Hastert have his pants in a wad over the FBI raid on Jefferson's congressional office? Because Hastert could very well be next. Hastert has been dancing with the devil, and devil is coming to collect.
