House committee says Obama administration may have edited 2010 report to favor Gulf oil drilling moratorium
The Obama administration was subpoenaed Tuesday for documents that congressional investigators hope would shed light on how a government report was edited to indicate experts endorsed a moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf following the Deepwater Horizon tragedy.
Interior Department officials have refused to comply with repeated requests from the House Resources Committee to provide documents that lawmakers say would show if political appointees at the agency or White House were involved in the editing decision and whether it was intentional.
President Obama pledged unprecedented transparency and its regrettable that a Congressional subpoena is necessary to obtain documents pertaining to the administrations report that recommended a six-month drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico, said Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), committee chairman.
The report falsely stated the professional views of independent engineers and the moratorium directly caused thousands of lost jobs, economic pain throughout the Gulf region, and a decline in American energy production. Its important to clearly understand exactly how this happened, Hastings said.

IF these crooks and leftist bastards refuse to honor a lawful subpoena, have them held in Contempt of Congress and send the US Marshalls to arrest them.
Time to quit being chickenshits and to start kicking Obamites asses.
We need leaders with balls of steel and subpoenas with teeth so sharp that they will castrate anyone their are aimed at. Take the bastards down, now!
we have a lot of detective work ahead of us after the elections to discover just what other mountains of documents the outgoing administration has ‘edited’
Dictators don’t need to comply with legislators if neither congress or the media won’t call him out. If people (other than freepers) knew about this they’d be furious.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
One thing about these republican dogs.... all bark no bite......
There’s a surprise-—more LIES from the LIAR in chief.
By November 10, every document that has been produced by this administration is going o be shredded, burned and it’s ashes disposed of in the deepest of oceans.
They don’t even bark....they HIDE!
We all know that Obama should be impeached, tried and imprisoned (Ok almost all of us).
The Repubs have decided the way they are going to play the game is for US to get him in November.
Fast and FURIOUS: Obama dumped guns into Mexico to gut the 2nd Amendment. More than enough to impeach, convict and jail him.
Libya: Obama illegally attacked Libya for the purpose (Naw, you're an American, you can't handle the truth).....
They are not going to fight him and give him the sympathy vote. Americans are stupid enough to fall for it.
“They are not going to fight him and give him the sympathy vote. Americans are stupid enough to fall for it.”
So its a ...hey screw the damage he is doing to the constitution and the country lets not make waves and then run a moron statist liberal against him in November so we can trash the constitution and finish wrecking the country if we win.... I get it
don’t like it but I get it.....
