Skip to comments.Darrell Issa to subpoena Obama admin over Project Gunrunner
Posted on 06/05/2011 12:40:33 PM PDT by Nachum
Rep. Darrell Issa says hes had to go directly to the field to get information about Project Gunrunner because the Obama administration has stonewalled on all of the information subpoenas theyve been sent. But now its their turn. Issa says that hes ready to subpoena people in the Obama administration for hearings this summer. He points out that this isnt the discovery phase of the process because they know exactly what happened. They now want to know what the administration was thinking by approving a process that sent high-powered weapons to the worst of the worst on both sides of the border resulting in the deaths of both Federal agents and Mexican agents.
If you are short on time, the actual interview with Issa starts at 1:10.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Darrell may just as well get the House SWAT team in training, ‘cuz this subpoena is going to be given all the respect due to a bucket of cold spit.
Issa may be more of a problem for the DOJ and the administration than Grassley. The Repubs do control the House (hard to realize, I know considering their behavior of late) and Issa doesn’t have serious skin in the ethanol subsidy game that Grassley and the Iowa political/business establishment does so there is no really big stick the administration can wield against him. This case does have real potential to be damaging in a big way in am election year. Eventually even some media whores are going to tumble to its ‘headline potential’. And self advancement will top ideological loyalty every time.
I will believe Issa is going to subpoena people, the day he does it.
What is this, the umpteenth time he has postured, then does naught?
Issa, if you are going to shoot, then shoot, don’t talk, IOW, crap or get off the pot.
We’ll see. I doubt if this will go very far. I beleive Issa might be given “an offer he can’t refuse”.
Why are the Republicans slow walking this investigation? It has been months since this fiasco that got Americans killed was made public and nothing has happened.
I have zero faith that Rep Issa will actually do anything.
This will not end well for the Hussein administration.
I agree with you and am cheering him on.Americans have died because of this unlawful action the Whitehouse may have ordered and it is important that this goes forward.It will be hard not to cover it when the WH starts the blocking.
You and I may say there’s really only one way to cover this story once they get around to it. I suspect we’d be wrong.
Me too. Most Republicans have no gonads.
C’mon—doesn’t Issa know that obamathugs are not subject to any subpoenas? The king hussein simply will deem them nonenforceable ‘cause he won.
This will go about as far as D’Amato’s Whitwater investigation.....nowhere!
-——hard to realize,.....considering their behavior———
unless of course you are deaf dumb and blind and don’t pay any attention to the outstanding successes of the legislation passed and sent to the senate. The Republicans have done great, even magnificent work that can’t be denied except by the sanctimonious selfrightousists among us
We know darned well what they were thinking. They joined a propaganda campaign with the President of Mexico himself, blaming American gun dealers for all the violence among the Mexican cartels. They wanted to blame it on redneck conservative Christians who support the Second Amendment. But it backfired, because they didn't get to orchestrate the proceedings when it went public. And unfortunately several innocent people were shot with the guns they provided, including a Border Patrol agent who was sent in after a narco killer armed with a popgun.
Please name some that really count. Seriously.
How much has the Republican congress actually gotten passed?
For instance, they could have included the denial of government funding for Planned Parenthood in a bill that Obama had to sign, or close down the government. But they pulled it, and put it through in a separate bill, which will never be passed while Obama is in the White House.
So, what might have been a real accomplishment became a symbolic gesture.
How much have they actually accomplished? About $200 million in first-round budget cuts, after promising to cut a hundred billion (which would still only be a drop in the bucket).
I will not pander to your ignorance
Bitch moan gripe deny .....pompous self righteousness at the very worst
Me too. And remember back when the Republicans won the house, Issa was being described as being Obama's worst enemy?
What a joke.
Same old, same old (Republicans).
If you cant back up your statements or at least give reasons for making them I would suggest you dont make comments you cant give reasoning for. There are more of us who would like to hear your reasoning.
Why are the Republicans slow walking this investigation?
I’m beginning to think anything serious like this is simply given a nod and a wink and they go through the motions and let it fizzle out. For public consumption only. They can go through the motions but cannott cross the line because their families might be in danger. I hate to think it’s come to that but.....
Blow out your birthday cake candles now.
Remember the Whitewater, Waco, and Lewinsky investigations?
Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.
Why come on a discussion site and post comments, then refuse to discuss the details to back up your initial comments?
Not ragging on you, but it seems to make no sense. We’re all here to share our thoughts and make our points and either become eduacated by other on this site or be the one educating those who are less knowledgeable. Teach or learn, but please avoid calling others ignorant without having the decency to back it up with facts.
eduacated = educated.
I should learn to spell check before posting.
Issa is making an awful lot of noise. We will see what he does when the rubber meets the road.
Rubber meets the road?
Nah. They just want to make a lot of noise during election time to get the Obamanauts on camera looking stupid. If they do happen to find something, well- that’s a bonus.
While anything that lands egg on the faces of the criminal thugs of the BATFE, it would perhaps be more useful to investigate where, exactly, the gangs in mexico and elsewhere are getting grenades and rocket launchers. It’s not at the local gun show, that’s for sure.
It’s am old truckers saying It means when they get down to business.
