“If Obama Has Nothing To Hide, He Has Nothing To Fear”

Steve Stockman 2 SC If Obama has nothing to hide, he has nothing to fear

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) Tuesday asked the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee to subpoena all National Security Agency records of phone calls between employees of the White House and the Internal Revenue Service.

Stockman’s office hand delivered a letter 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.

“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.

“If Obama has nothing to hide he has nothing to fear,” 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’s office also electronically delivered the same letter to the Homeland Security Committee chaired by Rep. Michael McCaul.  The text of the letter follows:

 

May 11, 2013

 

 

 

The Honorable Darrell Issa

Chairman, House Committee on Government Reform & Oversight

2157 Rayburn House Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20515

 

Chairman Issa:

 

Thank you for your ongoing efforts to investigate abuses of civil liberties by employees of the Internal Revenue Service.

 

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 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.

 

Warmest wishes,

 

 

 

STEVE STOCKMAN

Member of Congress

    Mr Stockman should have demanded the US Congress investigate the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama more then four years . The people in the US congress know that barack hussein obama does NOT meet US Constitutional requirements to hold office . The US Congress has been informed by petition from We The People that the US Constitution has been usurped .

      Only a few small problems there Charles. Representative Stockman gained his seat in the 2012 election, so he wasn't even in Congress during the first 4 years of Obama being President. The "We the People" petition site, is also a White House (Executive Branch) site, so it has nothing to do with Congress. While I agree with you that Obama should NEVER have even been allowed to be on the Ballot, we need to remove the RINO's from their seats in 2014 and take over the Senate with people opposed to Obama for there to even be a "Hearing" in Congress on his Usurpation.

  2. Most of O's life has been a lie so he has tons of things to hide (and, that he has done).

  3. Gilberto Garcia says:

    IF HE HAS NOTHING TO HIDE, WHY IS HHIDING HIS PAST? WHY DID HE PRODUCE A FACK BIRT CIRTIFICATE?
    why is he now saying that we must give up some of our freedoms to be safe?
    ask your self, "why is he now doing just opposite of what he promised as a candidate?
    The Constitution worked for over two hundred, now he claims it never worked.
    he has more to hide, in blunders alone. and he has not once told the truth about any thing, if he is not the one that gave the orders, then who is running his administration? "The Muslim brotherhood?"

    "The only people who don't want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide."
    – Barack HUSSEIN Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Soebarkah, aka ??

  5. I want to thank the blogger very much not only for this post but also for his all previous efforts. …
