    Coburn Turns Over Emails To Feds Investigating Ensign Scandal | TPMMuckraker

    Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) -- who acknowledged last year that he acted as an "intermediary" between Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and Doug Hampton, the man with whose wife the Nevada senator had an affair -- has turned over emails to the feds who are investigating Ensign's affair, Politico reports.

    Coburn and Ensign were roommates at a Christian house on C Street at the time of the affair.

    Coburn didn't tell Politico what's contained in the emails -- but said "there weren't many."

    Coburn told POLITICO that he is cooperating with the Justice Department in the investigation of Ensign, and says he's willing to submit himself to an interview with the FBI or Senate Select Committee on Ethics, which is conducting a parallel investigation into whether Ensign broke Senate rules.

    "We've given them everything they wanted," Coburn said, referring to the Justice Department.

    It's only OK for republicans to investigate affairs?
    It goes beyond an affair in Ensign's case, as you know.

    As an aside, anyone notice how our so-called Liberal Media™ hasn't covered this much, compared to the Rangel scandal?

    GEE I wonder why, Rangel has 13 Serious charges against him, and is a very High profile Character.

    Apples and Oranges.

    No. I don't know. That's why I'm asking.

    And who said it was okay for Republicans to investigate affairs?

    You're joking right? The Rangel Scandal has been ignored for almost two years. If he hadnt finally been charged he wouldn't be in the news at all. He's still be sitting in Washington playing with our tax money.

    The left ONLY cares about Republican scandals. Democrats that get caught were just " playing the game" Republicans that get caught are criminals. Just ask our esteemed buddies on this board.

    I no longer have any Liberal Buddies. The Gravity and Scope of what the Extreme left is trying to do to this Nation, Does not allow the the luxury of having them. If you are still Defending this Administration and Far Left Radical Congress. You are not only not my Buddie, you are my sworn Enemy. This is war.

    It's clear some people are at war at one another. Is it too much to hope that this war remains non-violent?
