Isn’t it always interesting how the Congress or Senate call for people who are apart of the current administration to investigate their administration? Such are the cries of GOP Senators. The Senators suggest that national security adviser, Tom Donilon, is the likely source of the leaks. This is due to the fact that he was frequently cited in David Sanger’s book “Confront and Conceal.”
According to thirty Senators, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, “The numerous national security leaks reportedly originating out of the executive branch in recent months have been stunning. If there were ever a case requiring an outside special counsel with bipartisan acceptance and widespread public trust, this is it.”
While there is no doubt that politics plays a part in this, it only does so because of the fact that these leaks come during an election year, and yet they are of an important national security nature. My own Senator, Lindsey Graham, who I believe is a RINO, stated in the letter, “no Administration should be expected to investigate itself impartially on such a grave and sensitive matter in the midst of an election. We are not talking about a single, isolated instance of a leak; rather, we are looking at ‘an avalanche of leaks’ on national security matters.”
No administration should be expected to impartially investigate itself ever! Think about it. It does not matter what one does, whether it is being accused of stealing five dollars or lying about a circumstance, or whether you did your homework and the dog ate it. Does anyone think the person accused, if guilty, will properly investigate themselves? I think not and we are talking of something far greater than a petty thief or some homework. We’re talking real national security.
Senator John Cornyn agrees with me. “This administration cannot be trusted to investigate itself. You cannot investigate yourself and not have a conflict of interest.”
I’ll go further than Cornyn. Not only can this administration not be trusted to investigate itself, it simply cannot be trusted. Barack Obama stood earlier this month and declared without equivocation, “The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive. It’s wrong.” Everyone that heard him say that should have had echo in their collective minds, “Listen to me. I did not have sex with that woman, not one time.” The American people have a pretty strong BS detector and I know the needle on mine was spiking pretty hard at Obama’s claim.
John McCain, also declared at a press conference that Holder and his DOJ could not be trusted to produce and “effective and unbiased investigation”, especially in light of the fact that he was facing a contempt of Congress vote on the floor of the House this week.
Again, I reiterate. No administration can be trusted to investigate itself. That does not work that way in the real world. It certainly won’t work that way in Washington.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
