White House clears staff in Colombia scandal
Politico ^ | 4/23/12 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 04/23/2012 11:03:47 AM PDT by ColdOne

President Obama's chief counsel has concluded that no White House staffers in Colombia were involved in wrongdoing, press secretary Jay Carney said on Monday.

Carney said the counsel looked into the actions of members of the White House advance team as a matter of "due diligence" and that "there have been no specific credible allegations of misconduct."

"there have been no specific credible allegations of misconduct."

Maybe it's just me but there is something Clintonian about that denial. Have there been general allegations? Have there been incredible allegations?

"there have been no specific credible allegations of misconduct."

So, there have been allegations but Obama and company declare them not credible. Right.

In other news, I have just cleared myself of ever being rude or impatient with my wife.

Her complaints are hereby deemed to be baseless.

Get a dog and a duck. She'll never know who did it then.

President Obama's chief counsel has concluded that no White House staffers in Colombia were involved in wrongdoing...

I guess they seek to quell speculation?

...and the meaning of is is?

Let's parse this out: "no White House staffers in Colombia"

Are there any White House staffers in Colombia right now?

"involved in wrongdoing...

Define wrongdoing. Is it wrongdoing as defined legally under US law, Colombian law, White House ethics -what?

This is very Clintonesque. Let's parse, shall we?

"...there have been no specific credible allegations of misconduct..." is code for:
There were several credible allegations, and probably tangible proof, that misconduct occurred by the White House staff. But, we not going to do a damned thing about it.

“no specific credible”

How Clintonesque...

Carney is not good at it either. He looks like a bold face liar.

Pretty much what I was thinking too. Even in the world of leftist whitewashing denials, this came out quick. Pegs the BS meter.

What do they mean by “specific”?

What do they mean by “credible”?

What do they mean by “allegations”?

And pray tell-what is the definition of “misconduct” when defined by the most immoral,hideous and corrupt WH in history?

I believe the report because there are no men in the White House with any balls, not even one.

Capons, Eunuchs, on-their-knees Demonrats.

Women don’t like that kind of guy, unless they are in drag.
