Coburn Speaks With Ensign Investigators
Senator Tom Coburn spoke privately with Senate investigators looking into Senator John Ensign's affair with a former staffer, Politico reported Thursday.
The news of Coburn's conversation with members of the Senate Ethics Committee is the first information about the Ensign probe since the panel appointed a special counsel, Carol Elder Bruce, last month.
Coburn and the Nevada Republican are longtime friends.
Politico said Coburn's appearance before the panel took place "recently."
