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.
Holder is the Janet Reno for this thug regime.
President Biden: “This is a big F’n deal!”
the chicago way is to leave someone like blago holding the bag.......this is an attempt to exonerate all of them. someone did something and I am NOT buying this story. too many holes in it - too many meetings and phone calls getting their stories straight for their to be nothing there.
I am sure Holder will get right on this.
Did I really need that? nope.
Good. Glad to hear they’re not sitting down for this charade.
So what is the GOP going to do when Holder slaps this request down? It’s nice to make these proclamations but action is what is needed. We must keep the dims backpedaling and on defense.
Holder may not pursue charges, but it’s Mueller who calls the shots at the FBI.
Only Matheson voted no. They cant even buy notes competently
If he does we can use it against the 'rats in the fall.
Here's hoping he goes Nixonian. ;-)
“President Biden, here we come!”
In your dreams, in a few days anyone not believing this ridiculous excuse will be demonized. Obama’s media got their explanation - now they will sell it for him.
the parties involved aren't going to say anything incriminating...they now have their story and they'll be sticking with it.
the ONLY potential to make something of this is to put Sestak under oath to see if he repeats the BS story. If he does, it's over.
If he tells the truth...then you can put others under oath...but they'll lie and it'll be a "he said/he said"...and won't be prosecutable.
I'm wondering if it's just better to let this lie and let folks wonder...
There is a massive cover up here and the media , or some of them are not doing much investigating.
shocking I know, they would rather be nice and hope they get an interview wit their messiah.
Or the seat for sale, there is no way he did not know about that either.
This admin is full of corruption and cover ups.
Lying to investigators is what’ll convict them in the end.
The culture of corruption continues.
DRAIN THE SWAMP!
Anti washington, anti establishment,
what do you think about the position that you are in?
He said he wasnt interested in the job because he wanted to work for PA. PA has been ripped apart
Do you think this will impact your campaign?
No, theyre worried about their jobs the farmer in Potter County platitudes pivot to campaign slogan
He felt it wasnt right to talk about details of a conference w/ BJ.
Last saw Rahm March 2009 for some HC thingy at WH LIE.. i think
he reiterates his yes answer about summer 09.. reiterates PRESIDENTIAL BOARD .is saying he interrupted the president, and doesnt recall, foggy memory, maybe intelligence, and says he wasnt interested,
folks, this guy is struggling, he is really struggling and in a corner.This might (REAL HOPE) be obozo waterloo!
Chicago politics is hard to forget for these Chicago thug clowns and in the end it will bring them down and I’ll be loving it.
Oh dear God please no..just get rid of both of the buffoons!
GOD LOVE HIM! ;)
No way. Asking a candidate to stop campaigning for no value is as stupid as it sounds. The Obama WH committed an egregious act of Chicago politics and Sestak sang. This is a felony for obvious reasons. The law specifically addresses primaries.
Keep out in the public loud and clear.
They need to keep pounding this and not let it go away. It stinks to high heaven and we all know it.
When we take the house, I hope the republicans hold hundreds of congressional hearings. We need to demand it.
I’ve seen it posted before around here, but naturally can’t find it now ... can anyone source me to the USC section that details the violation(s) of law here?
Thanks. Sorry to be so dense.
Wake up, you’re dreaming again.
