US lawmaker seeks release of spy case transcripts

A former member of the House Intelligence Committee is asking the U.S. Justice Department to release transcripts of her recorded conversations involving two pro-Israel lobbyists accused of espionage.
Rep. Jane Harman, a Democrat, wrote Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday, saying she wants to make public all materials involving her.
She asked Holder to investigate why federal authorities were recording her conversations and why the conversations were leaked to the media. Harman denied any wrongdoing.
News reports said that the National Security Agency intercepted phone calls between Harman and a supporter of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. She reportedly was overheard agreeing to seek favorable treatment from the Bush administration for the two AIPAC lobbyists.
