Reports: Utah Prosecutors Call for DOJ Probe Into Reid, Lee

Two district attorneys in Utah are calling for the Department of Justice to launch an investigation involving Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, according to reports from ABC News and The Washington Times.

ABC reported that the local prosecutors, one Democrat and one Republican, are looking into questions regarding campaign contributions and the online poker industry.

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told ABC the district attorneys were engaged in “a publicity stunt.” Jentleson said Reid has never been contacted and questions submitted by ABC News were “nothing but a fever-brained witch hunt.”

A Lee spokesman told ABC that the Utah senator also has not been contacted.

The Washington Times reported the Department of Justice’s public integrity section denied a request by FBI agents to use a federal grand jury and subpoenas to investigate.

    In some ways, much of the current disrespect for liberty and individual responsibility results from misunderstanding the lessons of science.

    To freedom’s detriment, the false definition of liberty, as the power of centralized government to do specific things, has become widely accepted within self-proclaimed progressive circles.

    Although the notion of uniformity may appear to align with democratic processes, it actually erodes our recognition of individual value.

    Whether or not someone imposes their will upon another is an issue far different from whether or not we can choose wisely among our options.
