Gagged Former FBI Translator Claims U.S. Rep Bribe Evidence
Andrew Kreig
DC journalist and attorney
Posted: August 8, 2009 08:45 PM

Seeking to overcome years of gag restraints, former FBI contract translator Sibel Edmonds reportedly claimed in an Aug. 8 deposition that several leaders in Congress and other high-level U.S. officials were suspected early this decade of bribery by Turkey's government.

- snip -

Reporter Brad Friedman of Los Angeles, who spoke by cellphone with Edmonds and several other key deposition participants, wrote a parallel "live-blog" account on his non-subscription website. His most recent story was headlined: "Deposition of Sibel Edmonds Completed, DoJ a 'No Show', Bombshells Under Oath."

- snip -

The Justice Department has argued as recently as this week that the witness's employment agreements forbid her from disclosing any information learned during her work. The FBI's interests include protecting sensitive investigative work regarding officials, and in maintaining good relations with the government of Turkey, an important U.S. ally in the Mideast. Turkey would be particularly sensitive regarding allegations of bribery, of course, and of allegations that the government was involved in genocide against Turkey's Armenian minority early last century. U.S. voters of Armenian descent want the U.S. to pressure Turkey to confess to genocide, which Turkey resists.

- snip -

Schmidt's attorney Bruce Fein, a constitutional scholar and a former high-level official during the Reagan administration Justice Department, told reporters today that he objected to many responses by Edmonds during her deposition.

1. Mean Jean may be very sorry she started all of this.
Bruce Fein, the attorney for Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) --- who began all of this with her complaint at the Ohio Election Commission against David Krikorian, claiming he made "false statements" by alleging she took "blood money" from Turkish interests to suppress a vote in the U.S. House on the Armenian Genocide resolution --- was confronted by a reporter with Armenian TV who asked if it wasn't the "cornerstone of free speech for candidates to talk about freely about these matters.
