Harman was recorded saying she would
“waddle into” the AIPAC case “if you think it’ll make a difference,”
according to two former senior national security officials familiar
with the NSA transcript.
In exchange for Harman’s help, the sources said, the suspected Israeli agent pledged to help lobby Nancy Pelosi
, D-Calif., then-House minority leader, to appoint Harman chair of the
Intelligence Committee after the 2006 elections, which the Democrats
were heavily favored to win.
