William Jefferson D-LA Testifies In Pre-Trial Hearing

Remember this guy? It's been awhile but William "Frozen Assets" Jefferson's trial is finally about to beigin and the Democrat's still have'nt kicked him out of office!

The FBI had information about potentially shady business deals involving a Louisiana congressman going back the late 1990s — at least eight years before he was indicted for taking bribes, an FBI agent testified Thursday.

FBI agent Timothy Thibault said during a pretrial hearing at U.S. District Court that he found a bureau document from the late 1990s questioning Rep. William Jefferson's business deals with a sugar company. It was not immediately clear what investigation, if any, occurred at the time.

Jefferson, a Democrat from New Orleans, was indicted earlier this year on charges including bribery, racketeering, money laundering and obstruction of justice.



The indictment spells out a dozen separate bribery schemes in which Jefferson allegedly used his influence as co-chairman of the congressional Africa Investment and Trade Caucus to broker deals in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes.

The current investigation began in March 2005, when a prominent northern Virginia businesswoman, Lori Mody, approached the FBI and complained that she was being swindled in a business deal involving Jefferson and some of his associates.

Thibault's testimony came in a pretrial hearing in which Jefferson's lawyers are seeking to suppress statements Jefferson made and some evidence taken from his New Orleans home in an August 2005 raid.

Jefferson had been expected to testify Thursday to support his lawyers' argument that Jefferson should have been advised of his right to remain silent before the interview occurred.

But Thursday's hearing ran long and was continued until Jan. 16. Jefferson's lawyer, Robert Trout, has said he plans to call Jefferson as a witness, but he is not obliged to do so.

The congressman made potentially damaging statements at the end of the interview, after seeing a surveillance videotape in which he was retrieving a suitcase filled with $100,000 cash. Jefferson dejectedly told the agents "what a waste," and speculated about his political future, according to the agents' testimony.

What a waste? LOL! What a waste that he made a HUGE mistake? Or what a waste that the FBI found and took the remaining FROZEN $90,000? He obviously spent $10,000 of it. What a Moron. Oh Lord the Democrat Culture of Corruption Continues...

Where is teh outrage? Where are the calls for resignation? Where are the demands for justice to clean up corruption?

Not hailing from the left I can assure you that.

CC,

I dont know.

If it were a Republican it would be a groundswelling news item.

Good question.

Where is the outrage?

there is none. There will not be any. If you want a textbook case of media bias, here it is. He is guilty and he is one of Pelosi's.

If the guy is found guilty in court, he should go to jail, lose his position and be banned from further public service.

There are too many of these types on both sides of the aisle. They are so many who are corrupt you need a special police force just for congressman and senators.

No outrage because it's no surprise. The same reason there was no outrage from the right regarding Ted Stevens, who is still in office :)

What I don't understand is why Fox News hasn't stayed on top of this, but yes, I agree that if it were a Republican we'd never hear the end of it!

Have you thought about this, Marie? What if the Republican's were running a woman and a black man for the office of the Presidency? The liberal MSM would be screaming from the rooftops that we are playing the gender and the race card!

How funny you are Marie! Yeah, it's amazing what a Ph.D. can do for your grammar and for clarity in writing! ;)

So...are you going to address the lack of outrage on the right for Ted Stevens? Why the double-standard?

Where are the calls for his resignation?

I understand your wanting to stick to these types of issues. Facts and truth become, at times, too difficult to address.

Gayle,

I have thought about it and yes if it were a Republican, they would scream it from the rooftops!



Federalist,

Well I might if only the Democrats would Police themselves first.

OoOOoooooooo attacking my grammer and writing! That's about all you Liberals have left when you have no plans for anything going on in this hemisphere.

Dont you run your own blog?

Whine, bitch, and moan over there about issues you wish I would moan about.

I will rant and rave about issues that I am concerned about over here, and how about you do the same on your own blog?

You come on here and just bash our President and everything we would like to see in our next President yet, you have no plans, no opinions about your own candidates, nothing!

Um....Bush isnt on the ballot this time dude.

If you wish to participate in actual debates, discussions, and throw one of your candidates in the mix feel free!

But if all you can do is Bash Republicans, our President, and me, then I suggest you take it to your own blog.

We like to discuss real topics over here. Not past History, especially from someone with no plans for the future!!

Coming from New Orleans originally, I can tell you. He is business as usual.

And I hope that The arrest him and convict him and throw him in jail.

Right next to Ted Stevens....
