Until now, I thought Democrats were being overly defensive as they circled the wagons around the White House, assuring everyone who would listen that the president obviously wasn't involved. Who in Congress had overtly pointed the finger at the president?
Enter Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) who figured out away to insinuate White House involvement in the IRS targeting scandal and needle the president about the NSA spy scandal at the same time. Stockman sent a letter to Chairman Darrell Issa of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee on Tuesday, asking him to subpoena all NSA records of phone calls between employees of the White House and the IRS. Obama assures the public he only collected this information to uncover wrongdoing and protect civil liberties. Clearly he would want us to use it to investigate this case, because otherwise hed be lying, said Stockman.
If Obama has nothing to hide he has nothing to fear, said Stockman.
This case must be investigated fully, given admitted wrongdoing by the IRS, its potentially criminal implications and revelations the White House has been less than honest about what they knew and when, said Stockman. Obama says the PRISM program is perfectly legal, so there should be no problem whatsoever in providing the information on White House and IRS phone calls.
The only possible scenario in which the administration refuses to comply would be if it would reveal unconstitutional or illegal behavior, said Stockman.

Brilliant! I really like the part about if he has nothing to hide, then he has nothing to fear..
It’s only right.
RE: I really like the part about if he has nothing to hide, then he has nothing to fear..
Obama can always cite EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE when it comes to White House phone logs.
He’s already done that to save Eric Holder’s butt in Fast and Furious.
about time and hopefully the other dopes in the stupid party go after what oabma knows, what he ordered and do something about all of this
Jay Leno should get a kick out of this one.
Offer Snowden immunity if he’ll demonstrate to congress how to pull up these records and all emails from WH & CIA to SoS the night of Bengazi
Request? Y can’t they just demand.
My point was let Snowden prove his point at the same time he exposes the truth of two or maybe three of the scandles.
Sort of like the Nixon tapes
Can the WH doctor the logs or make the incriminating ones disappear?
who figured out away ... ?
Certainly, NSA/FBI/ATF/HLS have no records of the NICS background search for purchase of firearms.
If Cabelas has to phone in, well, that shit goes into the database.. so ATF, FBI, and the rest of our newfound stazi has their cover, and registration has been accomplished.
You’re online, and realtime.
What if the data base is missing an 18 day, 18 hour and 18 minute segment.
Would 0bama be a crook?
You have to ask? Remember, these people are a criminal enterprise on steroids.
Hasn’t Congress realized yet that 0bama has rendered them irrelevant? Case and point: Eric Holder still has his job.
OK, What MORE could Congress do that they haven’t already done? Holder has already been held in contempt of Congress.
What does the law say regarding individuals who have been held in contempt of congress?
Congress only writes the laws, they don’t have the power to enforce it.
