Embattled U.S. Senator John Ensign awaits word on whether the Senate Ethics Committee will move forward with public hearings into scandals swirling around the Nevada Republican. Officially, no decision has been made regarding a formal hearing. But something unfolded in Las Vegas this week that could be a blueprint for the senator’s future, and it’s not pretty…
All this week, I-Team cameras have been secretly recording as senate investigators talked with a who’s who of Las Vegas business and political leaders.
Last month, we reported that criminal investigators from the Department of Justice were in Las Vegas talking to potential witnesses. This week, at least two attorneys for the Senate Ethics Committee were camped out at a hotel near the Strip where they interviewed a string of witnesses whose testimony could mean the end of John Ensign’s political career. What they didn’t know is that the I-Team was watching the whole thing go down.
