FBI: No Probe of Hastings

We noted a couple days back that the WikiLeaks twitter feed carried a report that journalist Michael Hastings had been in touch with them just days before his death this week complaining that the FBI was probing him.  No details have followed since--and the attorney he allegedly contacted, Jen Robinson, has not tweeted a thing--and now the FBI tells a Burlington, VT. newspaper (Hastings went to school in the area) that this is hogwash.  Of course, it's possible that Hastings merely thought he was being investigated.

The article also reveals:  police have ruled out "foul play" in the Hastings car crash (amid the usual conspiracy theories), have not decided on cause of crash (beyond likely speeding), and that a Vermont memorial for Sunday is now planned.
