Woke Up This Mornin' and I Got Myself a Conspiracy Theory ...

Item One: The US Senate is tangled up in the matter of renewing (or not renewing) Section 2015 of the USA PATRIOT Act, relating to the NSA's unconstitutional collection of phone data.

Item Two: Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the US House of Representatives, was indicted last week on charges of withdrawing money from his bank accounts in such a way as to not trigger bank reporting requirements, and lying to federal agents about why he did so.

Are the two items related?

To wit, was the indictment thrown out there at the time it was for the specific purpose of threatening US Senators who might be considering voting against the renewal?

"Nice political career / post-political prospects ya got there ... be a shame if anything happened to them ... xoxo, your friends in the national security establishment."
