WashEx’ Byron York: Drumbeat grows louder: GOP senators call for Sestak special prosecutor


From Byron York in today’s Washinton Examiner;

“Today all seven Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging Holder to appoint a special investigator to probe Rep. Joe Sestak’s allegations against the White House.

Last February, Sestak said the Obama White House offered him a high-ranking government job if Sestak would refrain from challenging Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter in the Pennsylvania primary.  Sestak declined and last week won the Democratic nomination.  Sestak has repeated his charge on several occasions but refuses to say who at the White House offered the job or what was said.  The White House says nothing improper happened but has offered no details.

. . .

“Without a public outcry, and with Democrats controlling all the levers of power, Holder and Obama are free to deny all investigation requests from Republicans.”

Time to act-up, people.

Mr. Holder, please do the right thing.

    Ran: Please, Please, Please tell me you’re not really expecting Holder to do anything but stonewall again

    I’m expecting that Holder will engage a prosecutor and that the prosecutor will


    indict Martha Stewart and/or Scooter Libby.

    That, I can see him doing…. Or maybe he’ll go after Roger Ailes.
