GOP Lawmaker Darrell Issa Poised to Call for Special Prosecutor to Investigate White House

Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight committee, told CBS News Wednesday that he will call for a special prosecutor to investigate the White House if it does not address Rep. Joe Sestak's claim that he was offered a federal job in exchange for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.

"If the public doesn't receive a satisfactory answer, the next step would be to call for a special prosecutor, which is well within the statute," Issa (pictured) told Hotsheet.

The California Republican has been pushing for the White House to provide details of conversations between Sestak and administration officials in the wake of Sestak's comment during a radio interview last month that he was offered a high-ranking administration job in exchange for dropping his primary challenge against Sen. Arlen Specter.

Asked if that job was secretary of the Navy, Sestak declined to comment. His press secretary told CBS News that the lawmaker stands by his original statement that he was offered the job in exchange for an administration post. Sestak did not drop out of the race.

On March 10th, Issa sent a letter to White House lawyer Robert Bauer asking for details about communications between Sestak and the White House. In the letter, he pointed to statutes he said could have been violated if Sestak was offered a quid pro quo arrangement in which he would be given an administration job in exchange for leaving the race.

Issa said the move may have violated anti-bribery provisions of the federal criminal code as well as prohibitions on government officials interfering in elections and using federal jobs for a political purpose. Violation of each provision is punishable by up to one year in jail.

The White House did not respond to Issa's letter by its March 18 deadline. Reporters have asked White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about the inquiry on six occasions.

On February 23rd, Gibbs said he had not looked into the matter. On March 1st, he said he had not made any progress on it. On March 9th, he said he did not have an update with him. On March 11th, he said he did not have anything additional on the matter. On March 12th, he said he did not have any more information on it.

On March 16th, Gibbs finally addressed the situation.

"Look, I've talked to several people in the White House; I've talked to people that have talked to others in the White House," he said. "I'm told that whatever conversations have been had are not problematic."

On Monday, Issa issued a second letter asking who Gibbs had spoken to about the matter and the basis for his comment that the interactions between the White House and Sestak were not problematic.

In the letter, Issa said that Gibbs' comments that he is "collecting direct evidence from witnesses" implies "that the White House is allowing its communications staff to carry out investigative tasks ordinarily conducted by legal professionals in the Counsel's office. Such slipshodness has all the makings of a cover up."

sigh Really think anything will be done about this OP?

This administration is the most BLATANTLY corrupt administration ever; JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush's administrations were also corrupt but not to this degree and not this "in your face" about it.

I wish I knew what it would take to legally and lawfully dismantle this administration...impeachments, indictments? What? I don't have the answers but I know there must be some really savvy people out there that are sitting on the answer we are seeking.

Yes, George did. And people were outraged over it and over being lied to over the wars and wanted our troops home so what did they do? 2006 they voted and gave Dems control of Congress. Still waiting for those wars to end, rights to be restored, and for charges to be brought against the liars who did that. It's not happening, though. Why not?

Because they're all in bed together. We can't push to impeach Bush now. We have a new administration in control so going after Bush would be nice but that isn't the priority atm. Bush isn't the one mandating insurance as if the feds own our bodies and can force us to insure them and pay the corporations the govt loves so much to do that.

Why do you think the bankers had access to their billions the next day and the people get a bit of health insurance help in 3, 4, 5 years? Who is important to our govt? Not us.

This is HOW investigations of White House criminal acts that warrent impeachment or forced Presidential resignation BEGIN....

The primary reason the American people have held off thus far is we really don't want Biden as President either and we shudder at the thought of WHO would become V.P. if Biden were to "ascend".

Ol' Larouche has been saying that soon a couple of suits will be paying Obama a visit and shortly thereafter, Obama will resign. THIS could be the reason. It is blatant bribery and an attempt to illegally thwart the election process. Election Fraud? Bribery? Criminal shit, I tell ya. It may not sound like a big deal, but it most certainly is.

Remember, Nixon was put in a position where he had no choice but to resign just because of a cover-up of a crime, not for the crime itself.

I would absolutely freak out with joy if/when Obama has to resign in utter shame. And shortly after, Rahm and all the rest go rolling out the door.

And if anyone of certain ethnic persuasion even hints at riots, they will be put down like never seen before. This usurper must go!

I saw Darrell Issa on the news this morning. He said it! It's a FELONY! And this one is going to be REAL EASY for the average (sheep) American to understand.

You can't attempt to corrupt the election process by offering a bribe! It's that simple. Now THIS is something that we all need to contact our reps about, especially the Democrats. And anyone, including Robert Gibbs or Rahm, who even KNEW about the bribe and failed to report it, is also guilty of a FELONY....Misprision of Feloney.

So finally....after all the bullshit and lies from this Usurper-in-Chief, THIS is what will cause him to resign in shame.....if it's possible for him to have any shame.

This one will NOT GO AWAY! And any Democrat that fights having a special investigation of this crime needs to be worried about a lot more than a November election. Assisting in concealing a crime is a crime, too.

They are screwed. Wonder if Pelosi knew about the bribe?

From now on, I refer to him only by his true name: Barry Soetoro.
