    He was on WIP In Philadelphia today.
    He said that no senate hearings are planned for Spygate.
    He said he a lot of other items that he has to attend to in the Senate
    He also said that Belicheck would be deposed under oath as a result of the lawsuit and therefore there was no need for hearings


    I have NOT been able to confirm as of 7PM

    Is Specter stupid enough to believe that those lawsuits will make it to court? Any judge with a shred of credibility will throw them out.

    Re: Specter says no Senate Hearings Planned on Spygate

    In other words, Patrick Leahy told Specter to go screw.

    Odds of Belichick getting deposed in a lawsuit are still pretty remote. The Patriots should be able to get the new lawsuit dismissed pretty easily since the plantiff is suing off a rumor with no hard evidence to find cause. No judge is going to allow a lawsuit based on a rumor.

    Hahahaha, he wishes. The lawsuits will get thrown out of court long before anyone testifies to anything under oath. Besides, even if Belichick went up and repeated everything that he's said to date under oath, everyone would just claim that he perjured himself anyways.

    That is throwing up the white flag. As a lawyer, he knows damn well that that suit will be dismissed and there will be no depositions taken.

    BTW, do we have any verification of this in any way? I guess I am just worried about celebrating too prematurely.

    I wish I could verify with a link, but I heard Senator Specter on WIP interview this morning and again during Afternoon drive Sports News.

    Perhaps he was told he didn't want to open pandora's box for fear of exposing his hometown teams.

    Re: Specter says no Senate Hearings Planned on Spygate

    Perhaps I am wrong, but it is not his choice to decide what the Senate does.

    Sorry, it is the chairman, or woman of a specific committee.

    Get over yourself fool. Counting on every person in this country to be a moron. NOT.

    I wish the people in this country started learning about the government in that they are invading our lives like never before.

    Butt out, it is called the Bill of Rights. Get over it.

    Time for term limits to get these bums out.

    Re: Specter says no Senate Hearings Planned on Spygate

    Maybe Florio is right on when he says "Other questions about Walsh should be asked. Such as, for example, how he found -- and how he can afford -- a Washington, D.C. lawyer who specializes in white-collar crime and government investigations. Could it be that Senator Specter hooked Walsh up with Michael Levy, and/or that Levy is handling the matter at no charge as a "favor" to the Senator?"

    Oh, please. That lawsuit will never see the light of day unless the judge seated is under the influence of some heavy, heavy drugs.

    Re: Specter says no Senate Hearings Planned on Spygate

    Patrick Leahy is the only one who can call Senate hearings. On February 8th, the Washington Post quoted him saying that he felt Specter was playing Eagles fan and that he had not received a request for a Senate hear and that he was not inclined to have them. Since then, Specter claimed that Leahy supported him furthering the investigatuion, but Leahy has not said anything else publically.

    Sorry to question you, but we have been burnt by people claiming they heard something on the radio before. I am sure you are right, but won't be 100% sure until I get independent verification. I'm no John Tomase.

    I completely understand.

    I am listening to the station again to try to verify.
