The Hill has today's story. The BRAD BLOG reported on Ney up to his eyeballs in the Abramoff investigation recently, and last May when it was reported that he was under investigation by the DoJ.

But we found the following phrase, in today's report, had a somewhat familiar ring to it...

Ney said he could not comment on the specifics of the DOJ investigation.

"I believeůthat although the government's investigation of Mr. Abramoff has been well-publicized through other sources, it is inappropriate for my office to comment in any detail about an ongoing investigation," he said.

...Hmmm... Now where have we heard that same phrase recently? These guys are getting a lot of use out of those words lately!
