    I'm amazed that Harry strayed from his usual canned responses....He is becomming a "Lame Duck" Senator in Nevada for sure...Both the GOP and DNC are paying close attention to "Harry's" diatribe's of late...even rumors of a "Re-call" ;)

    Less clear is whether a senator could face sanctions for characterizing the content of such files.

    Good luck on anything being done about it.

    Eh, Dingy Harry is at it again. I wish he's just shut up.

    I suppose we can chalk it up to more liberal temper tantrum...Dingy doesn't like his offers being rejected... :bang3:

    I guess I should wonder why I'm not very surprised that nobody cares that theres questionable information in an FBI file on a nominee that they want on the federal appeals court. :smoke:

    Since we don't know what the info is, it's hard to make a call on that.

    that sounds like a 'don't know, don't care' statement.

    Yeah, sort of. The flip side of your question is: How many nominees in the last 10-20 years have been approved with a "problem" in their FBI files, and how many times did that bite the Senate in their collective ass?
