Harman: "I didn't need to cut some deal with AIPAC."



"I have a long friendship with AIPAC. I didn't need to cut some deal with AIPAC." So she would have accepted to put pressure on an espionage investigation not because of a political deal, but simply because of her "friendship with AIPAC."

Of course you have to savor the irony of someone who backed the Bush wiretap program now complaining about being wiretapped. It still has to be seen what the grounds for her wiretap was, since it was a legal one, not part of the Bush programs. Was she being investigated about... her friendship with AIPAC?
