Hutchison likened the senior administration officials who might or might not be indicted to Martha Stewart, who was only charged with a cover-up (lying about insider trading is okay as long as you're not convicted of insider trading? ....).
But, a quick phone call to former Clinton Administration official Walter Dellinger--now Martha's legal representative for her appeal-- would have disabused Mr. Kurtz of the idea that his client was even charged with lying about insider trading, much less convicted of that charge.
Or, Kurtz could read Dellinger's appeal brief which explains that the prosecution effectively conflated the illegal insider trading of Imclone CEO Sam Waksal with Martha's perfectly legal sale of what remained of her Imclone holdings on December 27, 2001.
Which is exactly Senator Hutchison's point.
