Skip to comments.Walpin-gate opens wider: FBI investigation embarrasses the White House
Posted on 06/21/2009 9:30:54 PM PDT by Abakumov
President Obama's excuses for firing AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin look weaker every day. The FBI has opened an investigation into a Sacramento program formerly run by a close ally of President Obama's, giving credence to the IG's work.

Which reminds me. Martha Stewart and Scooter Libby both went to jail for lying to the FBI.
I wonder if Kevin Johnson or anybody in his circle lied to the FBI.
dammit where’s my tiny violin
Thank you. Feel free to re-distribute it. Call your local radio talk show host, write a letter to the editor, mention it in passing to your friends and family, etc.
That's what I will do.
The coverup is worse than the crime.
I question the timing.
I did not have sex with that inspector general, Mr. Walpin.
‘Which reminds me. Martha Stewart and Scooter Libby both went to jail for lying to the FBI.

Are you sure Scooter actually served jail time? I thought Bush’s pardon upheld the jury verdict but wiped out the jail time. Just wondering...
This White House fosters a culture of corruption.
The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next. Abraham Lincoln
The philosophy in American “schools” (more appropriately, INDOCTRINATION CENTERS) since Horace Mann and John Dewey has been SOCIALISM.
The increasing systemic philosophical and political corruption since has culminated with Obama and what may go down in the books as the MOST corrupt administration in our history. And it didn’t just happen: It was ENGINEERED.
But it’s likely that the new kids will be taught to believe that it was always thus.
“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side’, I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community’.”

Keep in mind too that Mr Maya said that they spent thousands of dollars in fees to try and retrieve these deleted emails so this should be easily proven.
Thanks Kim...It’s also posted here: (duplicate)
Sooner or later, it will happen. Hope it’s soon.
IIRC there were emails that someone tried to destroy.
Now this is out, won’t Obama just tell the AG to make the FBI make this go away? Short of a special council we won’t get anywhere. BTW, the same reasons they gave for firing this man is what they are floating to get rid of General Jones from inside the WH...
Maybe not. I think he paid a fine, though.
Perhaps I should've said Stewart and Libby were sentenced for lying to the FBI.
They're using the "confused" and "disoriented" defense?
Have these people ever heard General Secretary Ubama speak without a teleprompter?
There have been a few occasions where he sounded confused and disoriented WITH a teleprompter.
You could be right, he is not even six months in and he is already unraveling.
I just noticed that while looking for new titles. I hope it doesn’t get pulled - because there are new comments that may not be on the other thread, maybe it would get locked instead?
‘Perhaps I should’ve said Stewart and Libby were sentenced for lying to the FBI’
Either way, your point was correct. These guys got nailed and paid a price. Johnson should too, or Nobama should give HIM a pardon after he’s found guilty and then explain why...
Zero never had anything to start with. The media is having a difficult time propping him up with all his blundering.
Just wait until the massive tax increases kick in. Some of us can ride it out, many won’t.
This is the first I’ve heard of this. I guess the media is rather silent or I’m just not paying enough attention these days.
I just read the IG for Amtrack suddenly retired — after 35 years. Seems O is awfully anxious to get rid of all the IG’s... congress should be screaming like stuck hogs and they are whimpering instead.
That’s a new one for me...Do you have a link? I’d like to read it....and add it to the collection.
AG Holder will kill this investigation. Or, in the true Chicago mafia way, he will see to it that the investigation “concludes” that there was nothing to see all along, and Walpin truly was nuts.
No they're not. Ubama is one of THEM. They're chuckling to themselves.
Don't forget about the "problems" with the IG who is to oversee the TARP billions...
Too late now! What amateurs. If you want to portray your victim as a mental case, you put something in his drink first; then you stage an incident for proof of your victim's derangement. 0bama's people sure do lack for subtlety.
As if the worthless FBI drones are going to do anything to investigate/implicate/arrest 0bama and his criminal lackeys.
Keep in mind that the same damn FBI leaked information to 0bama when they were getting to raid the offices of Vivek Kundra in March of this year.
From the article:
"White House Had Advance Notice. The AP reports, "The White House says it got a heads up before the raids. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says the Department of Justice told the White House on Thursday morning of its planned raid of the DC offices, but declined to say if administration officials knew about the ongoing investigation of the D.C. technology office when they hired Kundra."
If you are relying on the FBI to make fair and honest decisions/assessments/indictments regarding the immoral/illegal/unethical behavior of 0bama and his criminal buddies, then you are sadly wrong.
What a f^%&ed up place our beloved Republic has become.
Ubama doesn't need subtlety. What for? He has Congress and the Democrat newsrooms in his pocket. That slimy p.o.s. can literally do and get away with anything he wants.
Have a nice day.
Joe is correct on this. Libby was supposed to serve time but President Bush commuted the sentence and Libby remained free. The original conviction still stands though.
Basketball Jones is going down and he’ll take the 0bamas and Robinsons with him (I hope)
As it should. That cowardly game playing by the Bush Administration made me sick. All somebody needed to do was stand up and say, "Joe Wilson is a fraud. His wife, Valerie Plame, who works for the CIA, apparently colluded with other Democrat fixers at CIA and State to send her husband to Nigeria for cocktails with fellow low-level diplomats so he could come back and report that he 'found no evidence', etc. We have asked the FBI to investigate these shenanigans and report back if they find that any laws were violated."
But no... they all had to play coy.
Eric Holder will shut this down. It’s his shop.
Where the hell is Pat Fitzgerald when he’s needed?
I hear this Walpin guy is a crazy old coot
Texas Eagle, you saying you have any confidence in the F.B.I.?
The agency has become a political tool. And I expect a white wash covering up any misdeeds this “magic negro” or his minions do.
In the end he will answer to the People, just like everybody else. It’s slowly starting to happen.
Nasher, Do both of these articles have their own threads?
I knew about one but not the other thanks....
I use this as a quotation because I do not want to be accused of perjury. This is the canned liberal response to any scandal that is exposed. ie: "look over here... (waving arms in the air) OVER HERE"
Obama and team have used this method since the onset of the Rev Wright problem and it seems to work since the media jump onboard and do his bidding.
The public is now so used to the stream of previously unbelievable policy coming from the White House, they are no longer even giving this stuff a second glance.
I hope, HOPE one thing comes of this. When these jokers are unseated, the Republican Party will drop the whole bipartisan line and remember what it got them... They owned the show for many years and did practically nothing. They assisted in passing BS liberal legislation and propped up moderates in an effort to draw in the left crowd. It led to bad policy, liberal style spending habits and eventually, loss of power as the liberals accused them of doing the very thing they wanted to do themselves... and used it all as an instrument to defeat conservatism in the last election.
This is good news that this has not dropped off the face of the earth but Eric Holder will impede any real investigation and this will be forgotten about just like Pelosi’s ridiculous CIA allegations.
