The White House is asking Rep. Darrell Issa to withdraw a subpoena of a senior adviser to President Barack Obama and is offering instead to a hold a private briefing on activities in the administrations political affairs office. In a letter sent Monday, White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston offered to brief Issa, a California Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on the role of the the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach on Tuesday. Thats one day before the offices director, David Simas, is under subpoena to testify on potential violations of the Hatch Act.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Pound sand, BO.
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.
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.
“And if he doesnt 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 well find out soon enough...”
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.
“My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government” BHO
