  •  Connections Abound (none)
    Connections abound among the players, a fact that is exemplified by the court filings in the criminal case involving David Safavian.

    The pace of the filings in the criminal action involving David Safavian suggests a torrid burn rate of attorneys' fees.  It is hard to see how Mr. Safavian can afford this.

    Safavian's counsel and the US Attorney are sparring over pre-trial discovery.  Safavian's counsel wants to see all "e-mails, correspondence, and any other documents from May 2002 through August 2002" between seven named Abramoff business associates concerning Mr. Safavian, White Oak, the Old Post Office Building, and the 2002 Scotland trip.  Safavian's counsela lso wants notes, documents, and tapes of interviews of the Chief and Deputy Chief Investigative Counsel to the Senate Inidan Affairs Committee, as well as documents, tapes, reports, and other records concerning Mr. Safavian's arrest and/or cooperation in other matters.  Perhaps most ominously, Safavian's counsel wants to know the "identity" of the individual who contacted a GSA hotline to report Mr. Safavian's alleged misconduct.
