WASHINGTON –– The prosecutors who concealed evidence to score a conviction against the late Sen. Ted Stevens should be disbarred, officials said at a congressional hearing Thursday.

“I don’t believe that the people that took Ted Steven’s life, how they should ever be able to practice law again,” said Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, who added that he didn’t personally like Stevens, but felt the prosecution was an injustice.

A federal jury convicted in the Alaska senator of felony corruption in 2008 for lying about home renovations and other gifts he had received from executives of VECO Corp., an oil field services company.

Watch Out for Terror Babies: Seriously?

A new threat could be crawling across the nation, clad in diapers: Terror babies.

Seriously?

Well, yes seriously if you ask some Texas Republican members of Congress who cite former FBI agents, according to Wednesday’s  Anderson Cooper 360 show on CNN. Nonsense, if you ask a former high ranking FBI official, who appeared on the show.

The Texas lawmakers say “terror babies” are being born in the U.S. to acquire American citizenship. Then according to the members of Congress, who cite unnamed former FBI officials, the babies are flown overseas where they train for 20 to 30 years until they return in the hopes of attacking the United States.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) has discussed the issue on the House floor, and on Wednesday Rep. Debbie Riddle (R-Tex.) spoke to Anderson Cooper about the issue.

Riddle provided no evidence to support her claim and declined to reveal who her ex-FBI sources were.

The CNN host also interviewed Tom Fuentes, the FBI’s assistant director in the Office of International Operations from 2004 until 2008.

“The FBI has 75 offices overseas, including offices in Jordan, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan,” Fuentes said on the show. “There was never a credible report — or any report, for that matter — coming across through all the various mechanisms of communication to indicate that there was such a plan for these terror babies to be born.”
