Saad What?!? Harry Reid’s Shameful Trampling of Privacy Rights.

By N. Beaujon

Every day the news gets more reprehensible. Yesterday Harry (“Valley Girl”) Reid, a formerly unknown Congressperson, again, made gossipy headlines by illegally exposing the FBI file of Bush judicial nominee, Judge Henry Saad.

At a press conference, otherwise known as “Democrat Shrews take to the Mic to Embarrass Themselves”, Reid stated that “"Henry Saad would have been filibustered anyway…All you need to do is have a member go upstairs and look at his confidential report from the FBI, and I think we would all agree that there is a problem there…” Never mind that the innuendo dripping from Reid had all the savoir fair of a bitter Valley Girl gossiping out her new rival but “leaking” the contents of a highly confidential FBI file is downright illegal.

Liberals love to expound on privacy rights but then, inexplicably, go around scavenging FBI files for their bon mots like homeless people digging for day old pizza at the bottom of a dumpster. After all, who can forget Craig Livingston, under orders from the Clinton administration, clutching over 600 confidential FBI files in his chubby little, ex-bouncer paws? In comparison to this crowd Richard Nixon was a piker. (The remainder of this article can be read at nbeaujon.com/saad_what.htm )

I heard about that yesterday. What an absolute OUTRAGE. All this concern for privacy if someone wants to engage in sodomy or kill a baby but one’s personal FBI file becomes fodder for gossip in Washington waterclosets? He should be severely reprimanded for this despicable comment.

Of course the MSM buries it along with any possible link between Hillary and her illegal campaign reports.

One congressman != all liberals.

All that is left in the Democratic party are liberals.
And they are the moderate ones. To their left are Howard Dean and the Democratic Socialists of America.

This is not our parents and grandparents Democratic Party.

All that is left in the Democratic party are liberals.

That may be, but if all Democrats are liberals, it does not follow that all liberals are democrats, and if one liberal Democratic senator, or even several Democratic governmental officials, have released private information about their political enemies, it does not follow that Democrats or liberals in general are unconcerned or hypocritical about privacy rights.
