Steve Stockman Requests Subpoena Of NSA’s White House, IRS Phone Logs: “If Obama Has Nothing To Hide He Has Nothing To Fear”

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) requested that the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee issue a subpoena of all National Security Agency (NSA) records of phone calls between employees of the White House and the Internal Revenue Service. You’ve got to love the irony of this. In requesting such a subpoena, Stockman is in effect turning the tables on the Federal government, who has been using the NSA against its citizens unlawfully. He then used a paraphrase of Obama’s own words against him, “If Obama has nothing to hide he has nothing to fear.”

The letter was delivered on Tuesday afternoon to the Committee’s office requesting a subpoena “of all records of every phone call made from all public and private telephones of all IRS personnel to all public and private telephones of all White House personnel” collected under the NSA’s recently-revealed PRISM program.

The letter, addressed to Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) read:

These abuses seem to indicate a larger, higher pattern of ideologically-driven harassment of Americans which Congress has an obligation to fully investigate with every tool at our disposal.

Frankly I am disappointed by revelations Obama administration personnel have been less than forward about what they knew and when they knew it.

As you know, recent revelations show the National Security Agency has been keeping an “ongoing, daily” log of every domestic phone call in the United States.

I respectfully request your Committee subpoena the records of every phone call made from all public and private telephones of all IRS personnel to all public and private telephones of all White House personnel.

If President Obama is collecting such information, he certainly would want us to use it.  If he has nothing to hide he has nothing to be afraid of.

“Obama assures the public he only collected this information to uncover wrongdoing and protect civil liberties. Clearly he would want us to use it to investigate this case, because otherwise he’d be lying,” said Stockman.

“This case must be investigated fully, given admitted wrongdoing by the IRS, its potentially criminal implications and revelations the White House has been less than honest about what they knew and when,” said Stockman.  “Obama says the PRISM program is perfectly legal, so there should be no problem whatsoever in providing the information on White House and IRS phone calls.”

“The only possible scenario in which the administration refuses to comply would be if it would reveal unconstitutional or illegal behavior,” said Stockman.

Stockman is correct. The only reason not to comply is illegal activity. However, understand that if we are looking for a smoking gun in this, I’m afraid we’ll be disappointed. The reason is simple. Barack Obama handpicks those in key positions who think like he does. He doesn’t have to tell them how to engage in illegal behavior. They know how. That’s why he picked them.

At least Stockman has the cojones to tell it like it is in the matter and attempt to hold the Obama administration accountable.
