“With a case this high profile there has got to be either a major malfunction of the system or criminal enterprise at foot to allow this to happen. So are you looking at both, is the FBI looking at both?” the South Carolina Republican senator asked.
“The FBI is involved and they are looking at criminal enterprise, yes,” Hawk responded.
