“Can you imagine, friends, in an administration of which Ollie North was a part, commingling illegal campaign funds between official and campaigns? Possible payoffs to ex-deputy attorney generals? Obstruction of justice? Illegal foreign donations to this country? Fraudulent security clearances? Waiving of national security concerns? … You cannot imagine those things happening in any administration in which Ollie North would be playing a role, because he would not tolerate them, and he would not associate himself with anybody that did.”
–Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., speaking at a gala in honor of Oliver North, after the opening day of hearings on the campaign finance scandal.
