Embattled media mogul Martha Stewart is said to see a political conspiracy behind the deepening investigation into her questionable stock trades, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
"Martha really believes it is the Republicans who are behind this -- and they are chasing her for purely political reasons," a Stewart intimate said this weekend.
"Martha told me that she believes they are doing the very same thing to her, they did to President Clinton. What Ken Starr did. She believes it is nothing short of a witch hunt! They are even digging into her private e-mails! They are demanding to know who she's dated. Martha said to me, 'Can you believe they want to know who I'm dating?' Republicans on Capitol Hill are probing her sex life!"
The close Stewart friend, who demanded not to be named out of fear of being dragged into the investigation, spoke just hours after Justice Department officials sacked her stockbroker's offices - removing boxes of evidence related to the ImClone stock scandal.
"Who runs the Justice Department? Republicans. Who runs the House of Representatives, and these committees looking into Martha? The Republicans," said the Stewart friend. "Guess who is a major force in raising money and contributing to Democrats?"
[Last year Billionaire Stewart contributed $125,000 in soft money to Democratic accounts, records show.]
The close Stewart friend predicted Americans will rally behind Stewart the same way many did with President Clinton during his impeachment.
"Once all the facts come out about this abuse of power, about these subpoenas, which ask for every detail on Martha's very private life, people will come to her side."
A spokesman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee strongly denied congressional investigators are being motivated out of any political concern and noted questions about a subject's personal contacts with other individuals are standard.
Oh please, nobody's that sick.
Please tell the Rats that this isn't going to work this time. We are on to their tricks. No one cares a whit about Martha's sex life, and in fact, not many of us care about Martha.
Please ask Joe Liebermman: WHEN IS ROBERT RUBIN GOING TO BE CALLED BEFORE THE SENATE?
Who rallied behind Klinton? Those who stood to lose their hand outs if he were removed from office.
I need some Pepto Bismol like golfer Rich Beem at the PGA Tourney this afternoon- stat!!
Nobody goes to war like this, nobody but Clinton.
I think she sees herself going to jail.
She will lose a considerable part of her TV audience if she goes this route.
For the most part, the women who watch her show and buy her magazine for tips on home-keeping are traditional women who are home with their kids. Not Hitlery-clones who look down on women who stay home and bake cookies.
She made a billion with glitter paint.
See laid down with rats and woke up with fleas.
Why should I feel sorry.
The problem is the punishment doesn't fit the crime, if she in fact broke the law. At most she saved about $34,000. I don't know if it's a Republican vendetta, but it sure looks like she's being setup as a scapegoat by the government.
If Matt Drudge reads this, I hope he realizes that leaks from the Clintonistas are rather easily spotted, and this strategy isnt going to work. He might as well tell his Rat sources to go peddle their wares elsewhere.
Anyone who thinks that the House Finance Committee is interested in Martha's sex life is not playing with a full deck. Furthermore, no one would believe that she HAS a sex life (catty comment by Miss Marple provided gratis).
Aw! No way! Am I getting paranoid too? I can't believe I said that.
Seriously, it's likely that it was the flying monkees that they used in the wizard of Oz movie. I'd bet that's the deal. Those monkees are sneaky plus they hate anyone that knows which knives and forks go where in a 5 course meal. Ever since those monkees got out of area 51 in Roswell New Mexico they have been doing stuff like this. Poor Martha, she never had a chance.
Sounds like a 'very special' episode of Martha Stewart's Living!
