Deguerin: Don't we all have friends like Jack?

A day of Delay: The retrospective. Originally posted on 01/03/06

Deguerin was on "The Abrams Report," to discuss Tom Delay's relationship with Jack Abramoff. He was steadfast in telling us that although Jack was a crook to the worst degree, good old Tom stood by his friends. Wouldn't you?

Dan listed all the quality time Tom spent with Jack and asked:

Abrams:...are you concerned?

Deguerin : There's no question that they are friends and Tom Delay's not the kind of person that's going to turn his back on a friend that's in trouble---Tom Delay is not going to abandon Jack Abramoff just because Abramoff has done some illegal things...

Just a few, tiny illegal things. Dick is hoping that Jack will tell the truth about Tom, but Delay is going to stand by his man no matter what. Nora O'Donnell did a good job to try and force Deguerin into admitting that Delay has met with the justice department over Jack.

O'Donnel: So Delay has spoken with members of the justice department in the public integrity section?

It was then that Dick caught a case of the Judy Miller, "I can't recall disease."

Deguerin : No, I'm not sure about that...

Can you help us out?
