Latest Misguided Attack on Sen. Harry Reid
Washington Times Reporter Charles Hurt charges today that Sen. Harry Reid improperly disclosed that Henry Saad, a Bush nominee for the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, had negative information in his confidential FBI report.
But this was not confidential, it was in the public domain. In fact, it was broadcast over the Internet at a Judiciary Committee hearing on Saad's nomination in June, 2004. Via Roll Call, 6/7/04 (Available on Lexis.com):
Is This Thing On?
The Senate Judiciary Committee is embarrassed -again.
Fingers are still being pointed over who is responsible for leaving the live Web audio feed on during Thursday's confidential, closed-door session to consider controversial judicial nominee Henry Saad of Michigan.
Senators were deep into their private meeting, raising and answering questions about the contents of Saad's FBI background check when the alarming call came that the entire private session was being streamed live on C-SPAN's audio Web site.
