    “What did the President know, and when did he know it?”

    The classic Watergate question arises again. And while we’re at it, “What did the President’s Chief of Staff know, and when did he know it?” And, “What did the Senate Assistant Majority Leader know, and when did he know it?”

    These questions must be asked in light of:

    1) The inexplicable – and contrary to the supposed new policy – rush to vote on the stimulus package in the Senate.
    2) The fact that every Senate vote was needed, including Sen. Burris’ (recall the need to fly in Sen. Brown of Ohio from his mother’s memorial).
    3) The fact that this matter with Sen. Burris may have hung the vote.
    4) The ridiculous and unbelievable delay in the disclosure of the Burris affidavit.
    5) The fact that it took a newspaper to disclose it.
    6) The fact that Rep. Currie is a long-time Illinois Democrat leader and colleague of the new President, his Chief of Staff, and the Assistant Majority Leader in the Senate (Sen. Durbin).
    7) The fact that leading Democrats are now calling for Sen. Burris prompt resignation.

    There is sufficient predication here to initiate a new investigation.

    The phone records (and email records) between Rep. Currie, the White House and Senator Durbin must be disclosed (yes, including the President’s Blackberry).

    The air must be cleared!
