At a recent speech to Pennsylvania Republicans, Issa described what would happen if the GOP wins 39 seats, and he gets the power to subpoena:
“That will make all the difference in the world. I won’t use it to have corporate America live in fear that we’re going to subpoena everything. I will use it to get the very information that today the White House is either shredding or not producing.”
Issa already has a record of going after the Obama administration for “Job-gate,” forcing the White House to admit that former President Bill Clinton tried to coax Rep. Joe Sestak out of the Democratic Senate primary in Pennsylvania by offering him an unpaid job. Issa continues to insist that that the administration violated federal law with the Sestak imbroglio. Additionally, Issa is also pressing “Romanoff-gate” — the e-mail from White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina to Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff about three possible administration jobs as the administration apparently tried to steer him away from a primary challenge against Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.
