I guess it's no surprise that Hastert went totally apeshit about the FBI raid on Rep. Jefferson's congressional office, since ABC News is now reporting on their new non-blog, The Blotter, that:

'Federal officials say the Congressional bribery investigation now includes Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, based on information from convicted lobbyists who are now cooperating with the government'.

Both the Department of Justice and Hastert's office flatly denied this, although an update from ABC quotes a source thusly:

'Law enforcement sources told ABC News that convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff has provided information to the FBI  about Hastert and a number of other members of Congress that have broadened the scope of the investigation. Sources would not divulge details of the Abramoff’s information.

"You guys wrote the story very carefully but they are not reading it very carefully," a senior official said'.

So what they're saying is he's not 'formally' under investigation 'yet'?
