Weldon searches spurred by leak

You heard that right, the FBI was forced to execute search warrants on Monday, with much publicity and fan fare, as a direct result of the leak on Friday by FBI officials determined to embarass Congressman Weldon weeks before the election. If the investigation had not been leaked, the warrants might never have been executed. In other words, this is all the product of CREW and friends of Bill over at the FBI.

From the AP:

The search warrants were executed, in part, because of news reports over the weekend exposing the investigation, according to a senior Justice Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing inquiry. Typically, such searches are sped up to prevent any evidence from being destroyed.

Dem Dirty Tricks Squad Targets Able Danger Congressman

Curt Weldon (R-PA), the congressman who has waged a lonely battle to bring the Able Danger revelations to light, has been targeted by the George Soros-funded Democrat hit squad Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington. CREW was deeply involved in manipulating the Foley scandal, possibly to the point of altering an alleged Foley email.

Weldon has led a campaign to expose the persecution of former Able Danger personnel and the apparently successful coverup of the intelligence group's warnings, blocked by the Gorelick "wall," prior to the attack on the USS Cole and the 9/11 terror attack.

Now it appears that Weldon is paying the price for offending the Democratic establishment.


At an event earlier today at Philadelphia International Airport to discuss airport noise, Weldon said the investigation was politically motivated - blaming a complaint filed by Melanie Sloan, director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

"She is the only one I know of who went to the Justice Department and asked for an investigation," Weldon said. "I know that because I have her letter."
