The White House asked former President Bill Clinton to talk to Rep. Joe Sestak about the possibility of obtaining a senior position in the Obama administration if he would drop out of the Democratic primary race against establishment-backed Sen. Arlen Specter, the Obama administration said in a report released Friday morning.
Oh, that was a big mistake.
When told about the Clinton revelation, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who has been leading the charge for more details on the allegation, said, “This is punishable by prison. This is a felony.”
“This is about the White House. This is not about Congressman Sestak,” Issa said, adding that he wants to know what Clinton was empowered to say.
“They’ve answered a question and it begs many more answers,” he said. “We want elections not to be appointments.”
This will not end well. Stay tuned…
