McConnell on the Hot Seat over Leaked Judd Tape


The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has asked the Senate ethics committee and the FBI to investigate whether McConnell was having a discussion about potential Judd weaknesses -- including her mental health and religion -- on government time.

“Using taxpayer-funded resources to pay staffers to dig up dirt on political opponents isn’t just an ethics violation, it’s a federal crime,” said CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan. “As Sen. McConnell requested, the FBI is investigating the recording. A thorough and fair investigation necessitates the bureau also inquire into whether Sen. McConnell himself violated the law.”

Mother Jones first reported on the leaked tape, which was reportedly recorded at a Feb. 2 meeting. Shortly after the leak, the McConnell campaign said it was working with the FBI.

the word "leaked" is a product of the media, it was wire tapped

or illegally recorded.

Just saying, the media wants s to think it was leaked, it was not. It's no different than the break in of the DNC during Watergate.

In addition, what was recorded was recordings of Ashley Judd herself, as they were playing interviews of her.

CREW is just a Democrat funded org, to fight Repubs.

Not a McConnell fan, but I'm not going to let the media drive the story to their liking.

I once had a cop tell me that they are extra critical of the one who actually called them for help, sometimes looking for any excuse to arrest the caller.
