A key Democrat in Congress is trying to drum up support for his party by warning voters that if the GOP moves into the majority in November, Republicans will issue subpoenaes over every possible issue they can assemble, including Barack Obama’s eligibility for office.
The claim comes from House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-SC, who told the Grio website in an interview that there would be gridlock in Congress should Democrats fail to maintain their majority.
“You’ve got people like [GOP Rep. Darrell] Issa from California who is a ranking member on the government oversight committee,” Clyburn said in the interview. “He has already said publicly that if he gets the gavel he will be issuing subpoenas everywhere.
“That will define the next two years of the president’s administration,” he warned. “The White House will be full-time responding to subpoenas about where the president may or may not have been born, whether his mother and father were ever married, and whether his wife’s family is from Georgetown or Sampit.”
The issue of Obama’s birth certificate, of course, is key to the multitude of questions that have been raised about whether he is eligible to occupy the Oval Office. The nation’s founders, in the Constitution, imposed a special requirement for the person who is president, that of being a “natural-born citizen.”
