The House Oversight Committee under Darrell Issa is slated to hear testimony today on another Obama administration cover-up. ...

A unit run by President Barack Obama's political staff inside the Environmental Protection Agency operates illegally as a "rogue law enforcement agency" that has blocked independent investigations by the EPA's inspector general for years, a top investigator told Congress.

The assistant EPA inspector general for investigations, Patrick Sullivan, was expected to testify Wednesday before a House oversight committee ...

The office of about 10 employees is overseen by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy's office, and the inspector general's office is accusing it of impeding its independent investigations ...

"Under the heavy cloak of 'national security,' the Office of Homeland Security has repeatedly rebuffed and refused to cooperate with the OIG's ongoing requests for information or cooperation," Sullivan wrote ... -snip-

AT’s Ed Lasky has written extensively about the Obama administration’s well-established pattern of obstructing inspectors general, the people’s watchdogs.

Two weeks ago, the Homeland Security Department secretary put the agency's former inspector general on administrative leave after senators said he was too cozy with senior agency officials...

The abuses by this administration are outrageous.

I'm convinced that we really need a new way of electing the Chief executive. Something has to be done to get non-partisans into the office.

This idea that the executive branch is going to honestly investigate itself when politics is involved just isn't realistic.

I wish we used approval voting. In such a system, the candidate with the most approval wins. This tends to elect candidates that are most trusted by all.

“Something has to be done to get non-partisans into the office. “

Radical idea: Stop electing people that support and cover for him. Like Bhoner. Of course Yesterday showed that even when presented with options to Bhoner, most people chose him anyway.
