Eric Holder appoints an Obama donor to investigate the White House leaks scandal
I haven’t weighed in on the Obama regime’s leak scandal to this point but it is getting interesting and I think it is time to write a brief post on it. Somebody in the Obama regime is leaking classified information to the press and it just so happens that the leaked information paints Barack Obama as a tough, no nonsense, take no prisoners sort of guy in relation to national defense. All of the leaked information has the potential to strengthen the president’s national security credentials and some have questioned whether the White House actually authorized the leaks for this specific purpose. This is a claim which Barack Obama has stated is “offensive” and “wrong.”
Taking into account the president’s stern denial it would seem likely he would want to clear his name and the best way to accomplish this goal would be to have a special prosecutor investigate the leak scandal. Surely if he had nothing to hide Barack Obama would not be opposed to hiring a special prosecutor, but Eric Holder has refused to appoint a special prosecutor opting instead to appoint two people from within his Department of Injustice.
And as can be read here, these prosecutors will not be granted special powers or independence which means their work will be reviewed by the Department of Injustice before it is made public. We have seen something like this before with regards to Operation Fast and Furious; Eric Holder tried to obstruct Kenneth Melson’s testimony, and threatened two other witnesses while “urging” them to change their testimony before the Oversight Committee in an attempt to control the message, so I think we have a pretty good idea how this will play out.
But it gets worse because according to this article one of the special prosecutors just happens to be a political appointee of Barack Obama’s, and he also just happens to be a donor to the scandal ridden president. The fix is in, will the Republicans allow this to happen?
