They've been ready for awhile, but their gearing up to finally pull the trigger.
After almost two years of investigation, the Feds think they finally have enough information proving John Edwards used campaign funds to hide his extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter to indict him.
Sources are reporting that this morning, additional subpoenas were issued in the case requesting e-mails, records and other material belonging to more than two dozen individuals and organizations with connection to the disgraced Senator. Among those given subpoenas were people in charge of John's nonprofit organization (he may have laundered money donated for use in the cover-up), his former campaign manager Nick Baldick, and the Alliance for a New America LLC. Federal records show that about $3.3 million of the $4.8 million raised by the 527 was distributed to AFNA LLC for unspecified "consulting services." What's that about?
On the political end of things, North Carolina's senators have reached out President Barack Obama and asked that he delay replacing George Holding, the U.S. attorney in Raleigh, as he is heading the investigation.
Everyone is stepping up their game, John. Even the Prez is getting involved. We sure hope you know what you've gotten yourself into.
