Re: US Domestic Spying

Shields & Brooks on the Newshour Fri - say congress is anxious about the Abrams affair - don't want any more offices searched...not that they would find anything by this time - but it sure wouldn't look good with elections coming up.

So is he being indicted because he broke the law, or is he being indicted because he dishonored his political ancestors by doing a crappy job of breaking the law?
