Harman not under investigation


Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) is not being investigated by the Justice Department.  Back in April, reports surfaced that her calls had been monitored by the National Security Agency, and that she allegedly tried to intervene in the AIPAC case (now dropped). But Harman has released a letter she received earlier this month, reports Reuters:

A June 16 Justice Department letter said Harman "is neither a subject nor a target of an ongoing investigation by the Criminal Division," according to a copy that she released.

"Earlier this year, I was the subject of media reports concerning transcripts of alleged government wiretaps. To date, there has been no official confirmation that such transcripts exist or are accurate, and I have written to Attorney General (Eric) Holder asking for full disclosure," Harman said.
