Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) has taken his rage
over the FBI's Saturday raid to the next level. He wants
the seized documents back now:
"We think those materials ought to be returned," Hastert said, adding that the FBI agents involved "ought to be frozen out of that (case) just for the sake of the constitutional aspects of it." [Pun apparently not intended]
Majority Leader Boehner, remember, thinks this should go the Supreme Court. If Hastert is more than just boasting (a big "if"), that could be sooner rather than later.
The FBI, meanwhile, says their agents did everything they could to get the documents they needed for their investigation - apparently they've been itching to raid Jefferson's congressional office since last summer
, when they raided his home in Louisiana.
