Skip to comments.Top Obama adviser says ‘no evidence’ that Sestak’s bribe charge is true
Posted on 05/25/2010 1:08:22 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Senior adviser to the president David Axelrod said Monday evening that there is no evidence that White House officials tried to keep a Democratic congressman from entering the Pennsylvania Senate race by offering him a high-ranking government job.
When the allegations were made, they were looked into. And there was no evidence of such a thing, Axelrod said on CNNs John King USA.
Axelrod acknowledged that if White House officials dangled a job in front of Rep. Joe Sestaks face to keep him away from challenging incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter, that would constitute a serious breach of the law.
Axelrod also acknowledged that there were conversations involving White House officials and Sestak, but said that those had been looked at by White House lawyers and their conclusion was that it was perfect the conversations were perfectly appropriate.
The presidents adviser would not say who was involved in the conversations, but promised: I dont think that any questions will be left unanswered on this.

“Top Obama adviser says no evidence that Sestaks bribe charge is true”
Clinton parsing: its true be we have gotten all the proof out of the way.
Ok folks, you heard it right from the White House. Sestaks is a liar.
Scream it from the rooftops.
Admission by one of the parties involved that a job was offered isn’t “evidence?”
Either Sestak is lying or the Obama administration is.....we’ll see.
So Sestak lied and needs to come clean before the election....hold your breath Admiral you are being called a liar....speak up and file a complaint or you will end up under the proverbial bus.
You think the guilty would say yes we did it!!!!
When you get to decide what is true and what isn’t, there is always “no evidence.”
Give me a f*ing break, Axelrod, Holder, DOJ. You commie slime.
The “inquiry” consisted of making sure any memoranda of the call were erased, burned and the person who memorialized it was given a photograph of Ft Marcy Park.
No questions unanswered...all denied.
Not for dem’s.
And of course Davey wouldn’t even THINK about lying!
Then either the 0bama admin is lying, or Quid Pro Joe Sleestak is lying...
I hope Sestak has tapes! If not, the bus not only road over him but backed over him to be sure.
Who looked into them, specifically? Names? What dates were the investigation begun and concluded? Were there notes or any documentation to the investigation? When will they be made public?
No evidence...that survived.
Axelgrease's job is to keep friction out of the white house. He descended from snake oil salesmen.
How’s that bus undercarriage lookin’ Sestak?
The President of the U.S. is calling the Democrat candidate for PA senate a liar. Gotta love it!
Why would Sestak “lie” about a thing like that?
Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
Would you buy a used car from David Axelrod? He even looks like a shyster.
In the words of Hussein, or was it Bart (or OJ) Simpson:
“I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it, you can’t prove anything”.
White House Accused of Federal Crime in Specter, Bennet Races
For the second time in five months, the Obama White House is being accused -- by Democrats -- of offering high ranking government jobs in return for political favors. What no one is reporting is that this is a violation of federal law that can lead to prison time, a fine or both, according to Title 18, Chapter 11, Section 211 of the United States Code.
The jobs in question? Secretary of the Navy and a position within the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The favor requested in return? Withdrawal from Senate challenges to two sitting United States Senators, both Democrats supported by President Obama. The Senators are Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania and Michael Bennet in Colorado.

So, Axelrod is calling Sestak a liar. Hmmmm, interesting.
Is this that same kooky administration that knew nothing about Air Force Once circling over NYC??!!
I thought these guys had Blackberrys and Twitter?
It all depends on what the meaning of the word “evidence” is.
Your Ministry of Truth reminds you that there is nothing to see here. Return to your cubicles.
Is Sestack a liar?
Does Charlie Daniels play a mean fiddle?
Does a 20 pound bag of flour make a really big biscuit?
Is Ed “Too tall” Jones really too tall?
Al Gore used the phrase “ No controlling legal authority” when he got caught taking money from nuns who had taken vows of poverty........
There is NOT a single Rat on this Earth that will tell the truth.
the wolf says that the fox was not trying to get into the hen house.... What are we that stupid?
Sure would be funny if there was a recording somehow.
Is he a liar vs did he lie in this case...
My son and I were the only customers eating a late lunch at a mom and pop Italian restaurant one afternoon. The owner and another younger man were seated a few booths away but across the aisle. They were speaking rather heatedly going back and forth between English and Italian.
The older man, who was the owner, kept assuring the younger one he would be fine. “If they don’t got no evidence you was there, they got nothing on you”.
My son and I ate quickly and made a hasty retreat. We have often wondered what cover-up we were witnessing adn wished we had spoken Italian.
This seems like the same sort of thing. Axelrod isn’t denying the offer, but that there is any evidence to support the claim.
It is a felony they need to file a complaint...with the AG directly and publicly...He can join the Scooter Libby club of sacrificial lamb...special prosecutor now!
so there not say it’s not true, just that there is not evidence to prove it’s true
Okay, I believe he did not have sex with that congressman, not one time, now let him go back to doing the business of the American people.
Oh, I mean he did not offer that congressman a job to quit the race for senate.
Let’s encourage Axelrod and Sestak to fight it out.
We all know Obamaman lies.
I don’t think so. He is not denying that an offer was made just that there is evidence to support the claim of the offer.
Lawyer or Mafia speak.
Right. Who’s lying? Sestak or the WH?
First Blumenthal, then Axelrod, Seatrak, and of course the bamster. And the hits just keep on comming
Talk about a culture of corruption.
These guys are probably getting smarter after Blago was caught, but it’s the exact same Chicago game.
He’ll probably get some other bribe from the WH to take back his first claim, just say that he misspoke. He misunderstood and/or mischaracterized a conversation someone had with him. He will end up skating through without a scratch to him or 0bama.
Yeah, they take no questions so they have to provide no answers as usual!
