Over the weekend, Congressman Jason Chaffetz of the House Oversight and Reform Committee was on FOX discussing how White House national security advisor Kevin O’Reilly has been made unavailable.  O’Reilly is Newell’s buddy (a review of the players here), who were exchanging emails back and forth, and is one of the big known connections to the White House.  When Oversight & Reform started asking about this months and months ago, O’Reilly was conveniently detailed to Iraq and sent away, out of the reach of Congress.  This is ongoing, and has been ongoing for months.

Mike Vanderboegh over at Sipsey Street Irregulars, who along with David Codrea at Examiner broke Fast & Furious, has been fuming about this for months – because apparently the White House stonewalling is working, and how Congress won’t hold Eric Holder and the White House in contempt.

Vanderboegh hit this with a post yesterday, as the White House invoked executive priviledge to keep O’Reilly from speaking to Congress.

This is one of the reasons for fewer posts here and elsewhere, and why the ATF’s gunwalking in Fast and Furious has dropped out of sight – because the stonewalling is working, and Congress won’t take the next steps of contempt hearings.  They’re afraid of politics and “optics” of doing their damned jobs.  There’s no new info coming out because the White House’s tactic is working.

  1. When will all of them have the fortitude to do what is RIGHT….the dishonesty that is prevailing is appalling…Mr. Issa must hold them in contempt and get this out in the light….this administration is riding ruff shod over the country and Republicans are not stepping up to the plate on this and many other issues which can and would dethrone King Obama.
