[12:04:08] <nick> cmn32480, i disagree with your assessment on the hastert story
[12:04:58] <cmn32480> refresh my memory... what was my opinoin?
[12:05:02] <nick> there's a lot more to it than what's in the AP story, it's not something i've followed closely but it's been an interesting case that's been mostly ignored
[12:05:09] <nick> 'it's a bit tabloidy'
[12:05:10] <cmn32480> I'm only on cup one of my coffee++
[12:05:50] <cmn32480> I don't belive that I said tabloidy, but I recall that coming up in the discussion
[12:06:03] <nick> oh sorry, bytram said that
[12:06:19] <cmn32480> it is an interesting story
[12:06:40] <cmn32480> if there is more to it than jsut the AP article, we shoudl ptu that in
[12:08:48] <nick> i'd have to put that together, it's a story thats been mostly ignored and downplayed
[12:08:56] <nick> i was quite surprised to even catch the AP headline
[12:09:08] <cmn32480> this was the only mention that I've seen of it
[12:12:14] <nick> "The US media has had that 2005 Vanity Fair article with more than five current and former witnesses who went on record stating that: 1- the FBI had been surveilling Dennis Hastert since 1996; 2- That the FBI and DOJ had in their possession implicating documented evidence on Dennis Hastert since 1997; 3- That his criminal activities included espionage, foreign bribery, money laundering, embezzlement, drug networks in Chicago "
[12:22:26] <nick> " In 2005 Vanity Fair drew on FBI insiders, FEC filings, sworn testimony and other documents to report on some of the information the Bureau dug up on Hastert. This included FBI wiretaps capturing Turkish agents boasting of tens of thousands of dollars in payments they had used to assure Hasterts flip flop on the US Congress Armenian genocide resolution."
[12:22:54] <nick> After his time in government he went on to be a lobbyist for Turkey apparently
[12:29:21] <nick> "Thomas Durkin, the federal judge assigned to preside over the criminal case against Hastert has repeatedly <a href="http://www.politico.com/story/2015/06/denny-hastert-indictment-thomas-durkin-118501">donated</a> to Hasterts congressional campaigns, federal campaign finance records show. So obviously we are looking at a judge who supported, donated to and voted for the defendant here."
