Issa Investigates White House Political Activities
politico ^

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 Obama’s official and political activities.

In what could be considered the committee’s sharpest probe to date of the White House, Issa sent a letter to Obama’s 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.”

My goodness...Issa must have invested in the leading manufacturer of shredding machines because he's causing a flood of activity......

Good job, Darrell

The traitor in the White House must not have any dirt on Issa, or his blueshirts are still digging to find some.

No, it was a media event at the height of their power.

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.

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.

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!!!

No way, unless our suicide is desired, do we want to impeach BO dor two good reasons: Little barry will be easier to flog next year, than perhaps Hillary or another lib; and then, can you say "President Biden?".

No, methinks the 45th President should be ours, along with (hopefully) all the way to at least the 50th that follow her.

Yes, Issa certainly has a lot to look into. I was convinced there was a HUGE deal with the Michelle/Her bro/Mayor of Sac and Insp. General Walpin...Issa was on it...but it went away. Very disappointing.

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.

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?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/07/white-house-collect-fishy-info-illegal-critics-say/

It is still going on and getting more blatant:

The White House and Organizing For AmeriKa are one and the same.

I've always liked Issa way before Zero was even my Senator...

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.

Formal complaint to the Federal Election Committee to make it officially aware of this.

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)

5 July 2011

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.

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!
