Skip to comments.Issa Investigates White House Political Activities
Posted on 07/12/2011 4:56:49 AM PDT by sunmars
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is probing what he sees as signs of an unseemly overlap between President Barack Obamas official and political activities.
In what could be considered the committees sharpest probe to date of the White House, Issa sent a letter to Obamas top lawyer Monday evening asking for a slew of documents relating to what the California Republican termed as an array of potentially illegal fundraising behavior.

Good job, Darrell
They must hate him over at the WH, he’s like a dog with a bone, beginning to really like this guy if he keeps this up.
If Issa really wants to see 0bama’s crew scatter, he oughtta visit the White Hut and drop a stick of bacon.
Any bets on How soon before the media, specifically, MSNBC and the Black Congressional Congress starts trotting out the well worn Racist Card???
The traitor in the White House must not have any dirt on Issa, or his blueshirts are still digging to find some.
This investigation might go somewhere. Color me crazy, but I don’t think Fast and Furious could have ever reached Barack Obama with our media.
Which is why the neocomms want to close down conservative media on the internet and on the radio.
Watergate was essentially a third rate break in. It eventualy toppled an administration. Here’s hoping history repeats itself.
barry don´t need no stinking Congress. What´s Issa going to do. Impeach him?
Given Obama’s Chicago ties, I sincerely hope Rep. Issa has good personal protection, and his family, too.
No, it was a media event at the height of their power.
It eventualy toppled an administration. Heres hoping history repeats itself.
As long as the MSM inflects the locus of public attention, not a chance.
When do the offenses reach the level that impeachment can be reached? Gunrunner, Fast and Furious, illegal campaign activities, starting a war with Libya without provocation, etc? BS has been riding rough shod over the Constitution for over 2 years now and my recollection is that all of Congress and the President swore to ‘uphold and defend the Constitution so help me god’.
The House can impeach, but it requires the Senate to convict. Remember clinton?
Pretty sure that Issa knows this, but by bringing baraq’s activities into the light, he is doing the job of the former media types.
Go get’em Issa!
The Race Card is seriously overlimit and has been canceled.
There’s so much to go after. Issa seems ready to start looking into it and it’s about time.
This investigation might go somewhere. Color me crazy, but I dont think Fast and Furious could have ever reached Barack Obama with our media.
You could live video coverage of Barry buying crew served automatic weapons from a gun show purchased with a check drawn from the Widows and Orphans Fund on US Treasury paper, then driving along the border hanging out the window gunning down women, children, young, old, Mexicans, cops and Americans, even the Pope in cold blood, and even if Walter Cronkite through a seance was commenting on the veracity of the scene - the Enemedia wouldn't cover it or even acknowledge it happened.
That and it’s a campaign issue.
"Issa Is or Issa Ain't My Baby?"
You bet he is!
Actually, the GOP has only had control of the House since January, and Issa has been hard at work for quite a while.
And I have no doubt that he has only just begun to fight.
I’m glad he knows how to multi-task. Keeping tabs on and bringing to justice so many corrupt/illegal goings-on with 0bama and company is like playing whack-a-mole.
Some of these are going to stick These ..and Issa is the one who could bring him down. Hopwfully sooner than the election...even if only by a week. Go Issa!!!
He should convein an investigation into what Article 2 section 1 clause 5 means when stating natural born citizen. First witness to be called: Pelousy and all documents supporting her belief as they relate to one Ozero.
I was seriously thinking the same thing. Issa is a brave man.
No, methinks the 45th President should be ours, along with (hopefully) all the way to at least the 50th that follow her.
I'm hoping against hope that F & F will be the ticket out of the WH for the little fraud. I hope Issa first goes after Holder, so the media will actually cover it, THEN drag little slime bucket Barry in. Oh, how I will RELISH when this guy is exposed.

This is true and very creepy. I’ve never seen the media like this, not with Clinton, NEVER. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? Is the coup complete? I’m not sure which is scarier, the Marxist Muslim narcissistic sociopath stinky fly attracting girly man in chief or the media? Every single day is a WTF day.
I’m liking Darrell Issa more every day. Not that anything will come of it, but that I know Issa is annoying the living cr*p out of the Boy King and his minions.
It’s about time.
Obama has used the Office of President to campaign and raise money from day one. Remember the scandal of soliciting and collecting email addresses that Major Garrett exposed?
It is still going on and getting more blatant:
The White House and Organizing For AmeriKa are one and the same.
“WHYWHYWHYWHYWHYWHY COULDN'T HE BE A WHITE REPUBLICAN?!?!?!?
if they did cover it they would surmise that it was Palin and Limbaugh who were responsible for his behavior because of all their “hate” speech.....and I’m sure George Bush would have something to do with it....
He has a good BS meter and this "administration" has more BS than any other in the entire HISTORY of this Republic.
Personally, I think Zero's fundraising can wait. I would like to see Eric "My People" Holder thrown in the slammer for giving guns to drug runners and the death of a Border Patrol Agent.
And Issa is taking issue with a campaign video that he says appears to have been shot in the White House, advertising a raffle to have dinner with Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden in return for contributions.To: Office of General Counsel Federal Election Commission 999 E Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20463 (Delivered July 11 per certified mail)

Subject: Allegedly Illegal Fundraising by Obama Campaign, June 2011
This sworn statement attests to the following specific item: On July 5, 2011, I saw "Obama Raffle Video Not Legal, Election Law Experts Say" by Matt Cover at CNSNews.com (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-raffle-video-not-legal-election-la) that alleges a violation of U.S. Code Title 18, subsection 607 It shall be unlawful for an individual who is an officer or employee of the Federal Government, including the President, Vice President, and Members of Congress, to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election, while in any room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties. I have copied the article's text for your information but you can verify it by checking it online. The article cites http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idN06LgizUw&feature=player_embedded as evidence.
” My goodness...Issa must have invested in the leading manufacturer of shredding machines because he’s causing a flood of activity......
Good job, Darrell “
Nah, Issa is for fiscal responsibility. He borrowed Hillay & Renos shredding machines ;-)
Think of all the reporters who could win all kinds of accolades if they helped Issa with the investigation.
The new Woodward and Bernstein, if you will.
Too bad they are all fellating the Kenyan Klown.
While that’s good, I don’t have much hope it’ll affect 0’s public image. The people didn’t care about all of Clinton’s illegal fund raising.
AS long as he smacks hard! and often!
I wonder what the tally is for executive orders by other Presidents? Zero is racking them up.
Issa is going to crush Obama .. I bet that zero has a dart board with Issa’s picture on it and has nightmares daily about Issa catching him in lies on the stand.
PeeLousy is the weakest link. Incompetent, and insane, all she needs for the trifecta is incarcerated.
I'm sure this has at least something to do with Obama recording, at the White House, that campaign video for "eat with me & Joe."
I see a little black nose peeking in at the top left there.
I want Issa to grab Obama and his marxist minions and shisters by the balls and squeeze until the Moon turns blue.
Keep probing, demanding documents, hold hearings, bring charges of obstruction of justice and perjury against lying witnesses or those who withhold documents.
Don’t let up, even for a second.
Squeeze these reds and crooks until they puke, and then tightening the vise again until the hurl last year’s lunch.
No mercy, no prisoners, no deals!
