The top spot on the House Intelligence Committee.
Congressional quarterly reports that representative Jane Harman a California Democrat.
Was caught on an NSA wiretap.
Striking a shady agreement with a -- -- -- -- -- Now former NSA officials say that -- -- took.
Petitioned the Justice Department to go easy on two pro Israeli -- is accused of passing classified information on to the Israeli government.
In return -- was promised that the lobbying group would then push it deep below -- to -- point -- To head the house Intel committee after the 2006 elections.
Now what -- hung up the photo of well she got a little skittish declaring quote.
This conversation doesn't exist.
And the FBI began investigating Harman let's stop that -- request a former attorney general Alberto Gonzales.
Who'll in an ironic twist -- -- -- support for the president's NSA wiretapping program that's President Bush.
A representative Harman denies the charges arguing quote.
The Justice Department has never informed her that she was or is the subject of or involved in an investigation.
And she went on to say that.
If there's anything about the story that should.
Arouse concern it is that the Bush Administration may have been engaged in electronic surveillance of members of the congressional intelligence committee.
-- a minute I get it it's President Bush's fault thank you congresswoman -- clear it all up.
Obama senior adviser David Axelrod was the guest of on -- on CBS's face the nation this weekend.
-- had well some interest in commentary about the tea parties that took place this weekend at last week.
While -- -- plus performance has now earned him this evening's liberal translation treatment let's take a look.
I think any time.
That you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something.
That's that's that's unhealthy.
This is a country where we value our liberties our liberties our ability to express ourselves and so -- these are.
One thing I would say is nothing that he wilders and -- -- president just cut taxes for 95% of the American people.
I think the tea bags.
Should be directed elsewhere.
Because he's certainly understands the burden that people face.
I David I'd love it I really do for the past eight years criticism of the administration was the highest form of patriotism.
And now what's unhealthy so how does this happen.

To keep up with -- changing definitions.
That last week we told you about the lack of support to senator Chris Dodd has been receiving in Connecticut now since January.
He has only received contributions from five in state donors only recently got some more encouragement from out of state.
And this time from President Obama now despite stay on the sideline during the heated special election in upstate New York.
Obama has decided -- -- wait around to support the scandal plagued senator who is up for reelection next year.
In a phone interview with the Boston Globe President Obama said quote.
While I can't say it any clearer I will be helping Chris Dodd because he deserves the help.
Now Chris is going through a rough patch while he just has an extraordinary record of accomplishment and I think the people in Connecticut will come to recognize that.
Now a rough patch may be in.
Well underestimated here that is God's disapproval rating -- -- around 60% and polls have him trailing.
His Republican opponents by double digits.
And too -- President Obama can't vote Connecticut.
For senator -- otherwise he would have.
Six -- supporters in the state.
And finally tonight if you're wondering where all of that stimulus money went.
Look no further than John Murtha is congressional district the Washington Post reports that the ethically challenged Pennsylvania Democrat.

Only three that's right three commercial flights depart from the airport on weekdays and guess where they're all going Washington DC.

So how -- this airport still operating -- here just a few examples of some of your hard earned tax dollars at this airport has received.
Now in the past decade it's estimated that Murtha has garnered at least a 150 million dollars in earmarked for the airport.
And that includes 800000 dollars from this year's stimulus bill and millions upon millions in improvements for runways that by the way are barely used.
Now we can all rest easy knowing where our tax dollars -- being spent and I'm sure that John Murtha county airport.
We'll pull all of us at -- -- of this recession.
