Papers filed in US vs. Noorzai show that Rosetta Research and Consulting LLC, acting on orders of the FBI and Paul Wolfowitz, made illegal payments to gain the trust of Bashir Noorzai.
Rosetta ran low on money. McCain's friend, Frank Gren, tried to get money from Scruggs. Surprise, surprise, Scruggs went to prison for bribery!
Could it be?
Could it be Scruggs was approached not just for his money, but his willingness to participate in bribery? Birds of a feather?
McCain was right in the middle, meddling with the FBI and getting aide Chris Paul to do the real dirty end of things.
