ABC News stands by Hastert story

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.

ABC’s law enforcement sources said the Justice Department denial was meant only to deny that Hastert was a formal “target” or “subject” of the investigation.

“Whether they like it or not, members of Congress, including Hastert, are under investigation,” one federal official said tonight.

This helps explains why Hastert was one of the first members of Congress to complain about the FBI searching the office of another member!
