Issa Turns Up Pressure; Did White House Write Net Neutrality Laws?

Chris Moody, The Daily Caller

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa is increasing pressure on the Federal Communications Commission to reveal just how involved the White House was in drafting new rules for government regulation of internet service providers, an effort Issa himself began more than a year ago.

In what is now the third letter sent to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, Issa, California Republican, demanded Thursday that the agency turn over information regarding communication between the agency and the Obama administration, including notes on meetings and emails concerning proposed “net neutrality” rules unveiled last year. Issa wants to know if the FCC — an independent agency — colluded with the White House to draft the new rules on internet distribution.

Issa cited the number of times FCC officials met with White House advisers just days before major policy proposals were made public last year. From January 2009 to November 2010, Genachowski visited the White House 81 times, and FCC Chief of Staff Edward Lazarus visited about 60 times, according to the letter.

The committee is requesting records of all communications between FCC officials and White House staff, with a list of the topics discussed during each meeting and all emails between the FCC and the White House related to net neutrality, including letters from consultants working on the issue.

    Tough to get ANY info on this or ANYTHING ELSE as the obama Administration's policy is "DON'T PUT ANYTHING IN WRITING". Also meetings are held more and more off site and out of view such as Coffee Shops and Condos….

  2. Another impeachable offense to add to the 50+ crimes of Resident
    Obama! Let’s make it Obama in 2011 – to get him deposed, charged,
    and imprisoned!

    They need to keep their snotty noses out of our Internet…..PERIOD!! If they (BLEEP!) with it, I'm gonna be majorly (BLEEP)ed!

  5. Issa is requesting records from the crooks that did the deed. That will be a wealth of legitmate information won't it. Obama stated that he did not approve nor did Holder the gun runner program initiated by the ATF. Now how about impeaching Obama over this, it is a lie that he did not approve it and we know it. This was nothing but a blantant attempt for Obama to circumvent congress and go after the second amendment and look like he wasn't going after the second amendment. You think this fool is smart enough to think of all this crap on his own? Check into the background of all of these Czars and aids Obama has, you will more than likely find that they all have worked for Soros and most still are. The GOP, has been handed a gift by the People and they are standing around with the thumb up their ass because of naiave politically correct thinking.

    • I agree, Obama should be investigated with full force and then you will see the dirty s.o.b. for what he is. Obama is poison to the American way of life. Get rid of this fraud. Where is the birth certificate ?? Everyone wants to know. If he can or won't produce it, impeach him, or better yet arrest him for fraud. President? Ha, this guy is a joke a very bad joke and he's got to go!! Rep Issa do your job and get rid of this menace..

  6. Rep Issa: Why don't you impeach this bastard! It is more than likely Obama is not a natural born citizen. Even if he is he should prove it because of all the controversy over this issue. To not force Obama to proving once and for all is a travesty to the American people and also cause distrust in the American Government. There seems to be over whelming evidence to show Obama is an impostor. Obama has broken many laws and needs to answer for them. Please quit giving Obama a pass and burn his ass! The American people are counting on you!!!

    • The Constitution is the law of our land and no-one else`s and comes first over all others including the UN. Love him or hate him. Bush did everything right from getting Congress permission and the UN`s permission to go to war in Iraq, Obumdum broke our law and also the UN`s law by doing what he did. If the attacking country or organisation (UN) attacks another country without being attacked first is illegal for any reason.
      If our people put down their signs and picked up guns in wisconson and other places. Wouldn`t they be called rebels? Would the UN want to send troops here to save our government? Would they bomb Americans to save our corrupt government?

  7. ALL THESE LAWS are being written by, TERRORISTS, COMMUNISTS, SOCIALISTS, MURDERS,and TRAITORS, and they are ALL PART OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

  8. I VOTE FOR HANGING THIS BASTARD FROM THE HIGHEST TREE FOR TREASON. WHAT OBAMA HAS DONE TO OUR WAY OF LIFE IS CRIMINAL. HE HAS INTERJECTED HIMSELF INTO EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES, AND I AND MANY OTHERS DON'T LIKE IT. GET OBAMA THE HELL OUT OF WASHINGTON AND INTO A PRISON.
