The AP, in their story on calls to the White House, noted one call in particular, a 17 minute call from Jayne Millerick, then a GOP strategist working on the 2002 election. This was with the same number at the White House's Office of Political Affairs that James Tobin called so frequently.
The AP simply noted the call, and reported Millerick as saying that she "did not recall the subject" and that she hadn't learned of the plot until after the election.
But details from the phone records analyized by the Senate Majority Project suggest that Millerick was fully aware of the plot to jam the New Hampshire Democratic Party's phone lines and seriously concerned about its legality on the day of the jamming. If that's true, it suggests that the jamming was definitely on her mind when she phoned the White House on the afternoon of the crime. That call lasted from 2:59 PM to 3:16 PM.
Millerick made a run of calls on the day of the jamming that suggest that she was looking for legal advice:
At 10:32 AM on Election Day, for example, Millerick phoned the law firm of Nixon Peabody. It's been previously reported that former NH GOP chair John Dowd had ordered the jamming stopped after receiving legal advice from a lawyer named David Vicinanzo on Election Day morning. Nixon Peabody is Vicinanzo's firm.
Immediately following the call to that law firm, Jayne Millerick placed three calls to David Horan, a criminal defense attorney.
When contacted by phone by TPMmuckraker.com, Millerick again asserted that she'd known nothing about the jamming until after the election. When asked about the calls to these lawyers, she said that she wanted to review the records before commenting. She has not replied since receiving the records.
Late Update: We've posted the call analysis for you to see here. Millerick's calls to the lawyers are on page 2, and her call to the White House is on page 4.
Late Late Update: Millerick says the calls were to find Republican lawyers to watch the polls.
