House GOP: Obama officials using secret emails to avoid oversight
The Daily Caller ^ | 1:58 PM 11/16/2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 11/16/2012 7:20:19 PM PST by haffast

The House science committee is demanding the White House explain why top administration officials are using secret e-mail accounts and other techniques to conceal their taxpayer-paid activities from public oversight.

The evidence of officials’ efforts to evade transparency laws includes EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson’s use of the fake name “Richard Windsor”, and hidden e-mail accounts, according to a Nov. 16 letter sent by the committee to several White House officials, including Jackson. (RELATED: EPA chief’s secret ‘alias’ email revealed)

(snip)

“The use of these [hidden] accounts could seriously impair records collection, preservation, and access, therefore compromising transparency and oversight,” said the letter, signed by committee chairman Rep. Ralph Hall.

(snip)

The letter was not signed by the committee’s Democratic members.

I wonder what Dear Leader's inter-commie secret-secret email account name is?

Maybe: TransParent@Mail.ru

Any guesses?

(Was Petraeus/Allen left outside that protocol?)

A sign of over reaching. They Left does that. The more we see the better as that means it won’t be long before they fall at their own hand.

Three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

BTW, the large cap words were the same as the 3 charges handed down yesterday to BP for punishment of their Gulf of Mexico underwater blowout, a while back.

Since the US Government is going to hold a company accountable for their poor decisions, then it should hold its CIC accountable his poor decisions, AND use the same legal charges.

Allow me to play Dear Leader for a moment. (wretch, puke, shiver,dizzy at the thought)

The answer to your three questions are:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

No.

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

No.

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

Er..uh, No.

See how easy it is for Dear Leader to tell you the truth as he defines it?

Please excuse me while I go soak myself in Clorox and scrub myself clean.

That is along the same lines I have been thinking.

Libs in general routinely let their reach exceed their grasp. BamaClaus makes a profession of it. The worst rub is that we are likely to be the one’s paying for it.

At some point he will alienate a sufficient segment of his base and his dem Congress-critters that they will put the brakes on him, otherwise it will fall to us and that will not be a nice peaceful process.

It would be nice if the media would ask the guy in jail for making the video a question. Just one? Just show up and interview the guy. He’s only been thrown in the gulag for some unexplained “probation violation”. I’m sure he is the only person on planet Earth doing actual time for a “probation violation” for using a computer. Maybe? How many other people does America have locked up for violating the “no computer” rules. ????

Not excusing law breaking, but seems like they arrested and perp-walked the guy for propaganda purposes.

Recall how many Hollywood asswipes recently made excuses for the bastard filmmaker hiding out in Switzerland; the one that seduced and raped the underage girl. These #s are diehard Leftwingers — the type of scum that revel in the downfall of the Constitution and our Liberties, the “radical” rights we cherish.

The US Congress KNEW and enables.
ENABLES felonies and treason, daily. ENABLES.

They WORKED WITH and for HASAN since the 2008 Inauguration
when Obama introduced him.
Where is the justice? FOR THEM ONLY.

They made Islam free of ObamaCARE.
Where is the justice? FOR THEM ONLY.

They have worked with the coup d’etat by those
who attacked the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon,
over and over. And they handed the USA to the attackers
as Americans CANNOT longer even speak their name
or even the word “terrorist”.

Now they attempt to play the dunce as they
plot with the UN for the end game over those
whom were gulled into electing(*) them.

(*) DNC and DOJ systematic
fraud makes this word quite inaccurate.

The congressman is so behind the times.

The person “Richard Windsor” is a transvestite. As a sexual degenerate in liberal times, expressing the female in power image to mask the milquetoast male persona is not only fashionable but must be promoted to insure cultural diversity

I fear we have crossed the threshold. Everyone outside of being a conservative has become totally apathetic now towards gov't and holding it accountable.

This Benghazi thing involves the DEATH of 4 people and it's treated like it's just some flawed occurrence which is not worthy of investigation by the majority of the press.

It's 100 times bigger than watergate ever was, yet no one cares what Obama was doing during the attack. There is no such thing anymore as responsible journalism, we do not deserve to have a "Free Press"

Wishful thinking I am afraid. The democriters are all of the same cloth. Given a chance to unseat the last Dem liar in the White House, they voted no. This time there will be no vote.

This is great news. The public gets transparency. We need to hammer on this one over and over again. 2014 is very close and we can capture the Senate. Then it’s game over for Obama’s last two years.

Imagine two years of investigations in the House and the Senate.

Until some undeniably serious shite hits the fan you are probably right, but at some point this increasingly africanized gubmit (i.e. super secret fakeroo email addys, Benghazi, Generals purge, siding against Isreal)and when zero money left hits the wall that all could change.

With slick’s impeachment, at least the economy was booming enough to blind the dems to the dangers.

Sworn testimony for Obama/Dems will only result in mass lying under oath.

Only way to get truth out of Obama and the Dems would be to use the same methods as used in investigating organized crime.
