McHenry acknowledges no evidence of Democratic involvement in Foley matter, but argues it remains an open question.
From CNN Political Editor Mark Preston

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Patrick McHenry acknowledged Sunday he had no evidence Democrats had been withholding information about then-Rep. Mark Foley's contact with teenage House pages, but the North Carolina Republican said a "question remains, were they involved."

Pressed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer several times to offer up evidence that Democrats knowingly withheld information on Foley, R-Florida, for political gain, McHenry failed to do so. But the North Carolina Republican then said "if they were not involved, they need to say clearly," on CNN's 'Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer.'

McHenry added, "And it's a question. It's not an accusation."
