ABC News: Hastert being investigated too?

The Blotter reports on some interesting wrinkles regarding the Abramoff/Congress investigation, which may explain why the Speaker of the House was so outspoken about FBI agents' recent actions with Cong. William Jefferson: "Despite a flat denial from the Department of Justice, federal law enforcement sources tonight said ABC News accurately reported that Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is 'in the mix' in the FBI investigation of corruption in Congress.

Speaker Hastert said tonight the story was 'absolutely untrue' and has demanded ABC News retract its story.

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."
