GOP likely to urge Obama officials not to shred documents
The Hill ^ | 11/3/10 | Jordy Yager and Bob Cusack

Republicans are likely to urge the Obama administration not to shred documents as they transition to the House majority. 

 Before the election, GOP officials on Capitol Hill privately discussed the issue but refrained from publicly tackling it, not wanting to assume what would happen on Election Day.

 Now that Republicans will control the House, the shredding matter will move front and center.

If they shred documents, it’ll be another thing to prosecute him with. Obama is literally handing the Pubbies the keys to his own impeachment and conviction. Then prison.

The audacity of this administration is such that there are probably documents that read like some super-villain screed detailing every bit of their master plan.

Hearings...lots of ‘em. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

I’m sure the most ethical administration in US history
will scrupulously comply.
And pigs will fly ...off to India.

I’ll bet that the shredders are already working overtime. The orders probably went out weeks ago.

Republicans have been too polite too long to the conniving,cheating 'Rats .

Ordinary people who still belong to the Democrat party should know they are supporting all kinds of cheating.

Nixon lost the Presidency for trying to spy on the Democrats' cheating;and decades later the Democrat party still engages in widespread vote fraud(see Chicago,Nevada,etc.).

“I’ll bet that the shredders are already working overtime.”

They’ve probably overheated, jammed, and been replaced several times by this point.

Paper? That’s so 20th century.

Now all the incriminating stuff is in e-mails and other electronic documents. And they can’t be destroyed, there’s always a back-up record somewhere.

If the Obama clowns were up to anything, we’re all gonna find out about it, very soon.

This idea will not sit well with either the
undocumented Tyrant Imam's Czar of Shredding .. or
DNC's Gorelick or Sandy Berger.

Urge? URGE???

How about confiscating them before they can shred them. If they’re not shredded already.

"Shredding documents in an investigation? Why- that might be...(gasp) illegal."

Yeah, but urging someone not to shred documents before launching a formal investigation is simply telling them, you better shred everything you can now.

I am convinced this is why Obama hasn’t put out a good forgery of a long form birth certificate. The Hawaii records were scanned a long time ago and many many backups now exist.

Oh for f's sake.

Quit telling Al Capone you're coming for him, and you better not find any evidence of criminal activity when you get there.

"Each side will posture to be seen as the reasonable ones"

Conservatives won based on outrage. To now try to appear as the reasonable ones, to compromise, to become "Democrat light" is a grave error that Republicans always seem to make. STAND UP conservatives! America is mad. Use that energy to cruise to an even greater victory in 2012.
