Do I detect that the unclothed emperor is beginning to squirm a little?

They just want to keep it private, see? Nothing to worry about...

Not to worry, in the spirit of “bi-partisanship” Mr. Issa will work out a deal so the cretins do not have to testify under oath and the subpoena goes away.

... and Hamas wants a cease-fire, too.

Keep up the pressure, Israel.

Keep up the pressure, Mr. Issa.

Issa better stand firm. The need to be under oath to somewhat protect the process from the lies they are going to tell.

And if he doesn’t back off, is the former aide going to have a sudden fatal car wreck, an private plane crash into the ocean or a fatal anaphylactic reaction to a “bee sting”? I guess we’ll find out soon enough...

The subpoena was drafted and submitted for a reason, no way should it be dropped or ignored.

How about both? Suspend the subpoena, but re-issue it if the meeting doesn’t produce results.

Issa is not going to do much with the one scandal that could destroy the power of government ....he’s a politician, not a patriot ...he’ll just blather on and nothing will come of anything he has done or will do

Private meeting? Why? So you can threaten Issa?

Uh oh, they want to serve him some of that ‘special Kool Aid’ although I think Issa might have already drank it.

Well, even if we didn’t get the testimony, we’d have one less Commie Termite working in our government. I’d take that deal!

The word is TRANS-PAR-EN-CY . Private meetings are not conducive to it.
