Plans to Draft Legislation to Protect from Raids
Atty General Alberto Gonzales has been tough on law-breakers i.e. pedophiles, illegals, etc. and is doing an excellent job in my opinion. The FBI had ever right with their search warrant to enter the office of Democrat William Jefferson at the Capital building. Why are these lawmakers screaming about their privileges instead of this major corruption going on? It seems the phrase of the day is No Wrongdoing!! Democrat Harry Reid is the latest!!
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner said on Tuesday he plans to draft legislation that would protect congressional material during searches by government investigators.
Sensenbrenner also said he wanted to call Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and FBI Director Robert Mueller to testify about their justification for the unprecedented raid on the office of Rep. William Jefferson, the target of a bribery investigation.
Sensenbrenner, a Wisconsin Republican, said at a hearing on the raid that his bill could avoid a repeat of last week's standoff between congressional leaders and the Bush administration after the search of Jefferson's Capitol Hill office. [Full Story]
