Monday, we learned that the President sent a letter to the Russians offering them Poland and the Czech Republic if only they’d put in a good word for us to their friends in Tehran. Then, […]

I am asking very firmly the attorney general, and I’ve checked with the Judiciary committee and we have a cooperative effort here – they’ll be working on this as well…But, we’re going to have a hearing […]
