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

by Brian Montopoli, ABC News

 Rep. Issa wants to keep the pressure on Obama

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.

    All you people need to quit talking, crying, complaining, moaning and take some action. This administration must be removed from ofice before they completely destroy everything America stands for. I am calling you people to task. Either band together as a nation and march on DC or shut up. It is time these people in DC realize that the American people are willing to use force to remove them immediately. I will gladly lead the march and be the first one arrested or shot because they are making America an undesireable place to live.

If you want to do something about it Tom then feel free to go to DC and remove them by force but stop insiting violence. We The People will get him out of office the legal way. Let me ask you again Tom, what are you doing to help ths country? what have you done to help get Obama out of office? Do you spend your own money to go to DC and protest? I have.

    I marched on DC in November with the Tea Party people, the politicians sneaked out the back door, they have men posted with machine guns to control your movements. I think we are grappling for control of our government and our fate. They are emboldened with the mainstream media controlling some of the message, promoting the Dems and Obama, they are emboldened b/c we couldn't stop health care. It really wouldn't surprise me if they crowned themselves Lords, Ladies and King at election time.& thwart us there at the polls also. It wouldn't surprise me if they shut down free speech. I think I'm still in shock about the actions of this regime and some of the reaction of citizens who actually support this mess. I don't mean to be a downer, but there is stuff going on here that has not ever happened in this country, at least in my memory.

    Perhaps Issa will go forward with his intent and then we will find out who Barack Obama truly is. He has got to produce a birth certificate to settle the minds of the people. I am refusing his health care and will no doubt go to jail or be killed. But until I know for sure he is a legal American, I will not become involved in his health care program. America must band together during this difficult time and ask God to direct us in our comings and goings. We cannot control this Administration, that has already been proved…they don't listen to us. Be calm and do everything according to the laws of heaven and the laws of the land. We can replace those who turned a deaf ear to our protest. As Cindy said, there is stuff going on that has never taken place in our country in the past, marching on DC is not the answer. Prayer is. God bless America.

    What I see is a group of people on a mission……………. that mission is to discredit, and enrage anyone who disagrees with them or their agenda. What we as a people MUST DO is STAY CALM, we can't LET THESE DUMMYS get the best of us. We're SMARTER than that and we also know that nothing can be ACCOMPLISHED while yelling, fighting, and carrying on.
    Follks this has BEEN THEIR PLAN ALL ALONG!!! THOSE OF US WHO HAVE DONE OUR HOMEWORK AND READ OUR BOOKS, KNOW WHAT mr. obama HAS HAD PLANNED.
    America is FULL OF BRIGHT, RESILIENT, HONEST, GIVING, and NEVER TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER AMERICANS and WE WILL WORK TOGETHER WITHOUT VIOLENCE AND WITHOUT HATE TO BRING AMERICA BACK TO WHERE SHE STARTED.
    AMERICA THE GREAT, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, but most of all WE ARE, AMERICA, THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE and WE WILL NOT SIMPLY CLOSE OUR EYES AS OUR CONSTITUTION IS,,,
    RIPPED, TORN, BURNED, SPIT UPON, AND JUST COMPLETELY IGNORED.
    OUR MEN AND WOMEN HAVE DIED AND HAVE BEEN WOUNDED
    DEFENDING OUR CONSTITUTION HOW COULD WE EVER JUST CLOSE OUR EYES WHILE THE AMERICA HATING democrats TRY TO DESTROY HER?

  • Steve

    Issa very much needs go forward with his intent to investigate the obious tyrant Obama wishes to become if we allow it and then we will find out who Barack Obama truly is. It is a fact he absolutely needs to produce a birth certificate to settle in the the minds of the people of the United States just who he indeed thinks he is to refuse to produce one? Just try to obtain a passport or any other document that requires proof an American Citizenship to provide a birth certificate to obtain and see how far you get !!!!!!!!

  • Steve

    I too am refusing his health care and will go to jail. Please know until I know for sure he is a legal American, I will not become involved in his health care program or abide by any other legislation his corrupt administration chooses to illegally enact. America must band together during this difficult time. If indeed we cannot control this Socialist Administration, and this has already been proven…they absolutely don't listen to us. Then of course be calm and do everything according to the laws of the land. We can replace those who turned a deaf ear to our protest. There are most definitely going on in this country that has never taken place before. Most definitely marching on DC is not the answer. Use your vote and the pressure that can be brought to bear on our elected officials. Those foolish enough to have listened to Nancy Pelosi to sacrifice their careers in elected government to perpetuate the Socialist agenda of the current administration at the cost of weakening of the United States as a leading Democracy in the world, should lose their jobs and their right to represent the very people who elected them to carry out the wishes of the people they claim to represent.

    Runner45,

    How can you impeach a representative who was ineligible to hold the office in the first place? Arrest Obama and anyone else complicit in this enormous fraud then hold a special election.
