Skip to comments.GOP Asks FBI to Investigate ‘Collusion,’ Obstruction of Justice in Sestak Case
Posted on 05/28/2010 1:44:11 PM PDT by kristinn
All the Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have joined Rep. Darrell Issa, ranking GOP member of the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, in writing a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller over the Joe Sestak affair. The lawmakers urge Mueller to investigate collusion and possible obstruction of justice involving the White House, former President Bill Clinton, and Sestaks brother, who was consulted during the drafting of the new White House report.
Not surprisingly, the White Houses own report clears White House officials and former President Bill Clinton of wrongdoing, the lawmakers write. But assurances by the Obama White House that no laws were broken are like the Nixon White House promising it did nothing illegal in Watergate. Clearly an independent investigation is necessary to determine once and for all what really happened.
The lawmakers say that the original acts, in which Sestak was offered a position in return for his leaving the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary race, could violate several federal laws. But they are also worried by the circumstances surrounding the White Houses self-exonerating report. We are equally concerned about steps taken by the White House leading up to the issuance of todays report, they write, including a meeting between former President Clinton and President Obama and reports that Rep. Sestaks brother and campaign manager was consulted on the drafting of the White House report. The apparent collusion between the parties involved may constitute obstruction of justice. We urge the FBI to investigate.
The Republicans note that Attorney General Eric Holder has already turned down a request from Issa to investigate the matter.

The “Chicago Way” in action.
President Biden, here we come!
Don’t neglect the possible buying of votes on Obamacare when Jim Matheson’s brother got a judicial appointment...
Eric holder will just black hole this.
That’s why holder was picked for the job. Preplanning.
Yeah. Lots of luck with THAT!
Biden: "I CAN'T WAIT!"
Time for an extra large tub of popcorn..with real butter.
This needs a special prosecutor. If the shoe were on the other foot...Dems and their media (which is most of it) would be screaming for a “real” investigation. Let’s see if the MSM tries to close this down.
Not a chance. That would require a media with integrity and they have none at all. Obama will skate, Sestak on the other hand will be defeated in November and then punished in some way or another by the Chicago thugs that run our country now.
“President Biden, here we come!”
I can’t wait.
Never happen during the Era of Zero.
The GOP should be asking the FBI to investigate a lot more than just this.
YEP. They have beencarelessand hand-fisted, IMO. The lunch with WJC yesterday and today the report, and now Sestak changing his tune about a job. It looks bad.
The collusion is obvious now that we’ve heard the matching stories.I can imagine this coming from WH mouthpiece: “Stick with this version and you’re home free.’
They’d never let ‘slip of the lip’ Joe in on this. Hahaha.
Maybe this will be their open door. There’s not much gray area on this one..... so this gives them something concrete to work with, then the other things may unravel.....
At least he’ll be entertaining.
