GOP Rep. Intends to ‘Investigate, Identify and Prosecute People Within the Administration
The Blaze ^ | 7-12-2013 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 07/12/2013 10:16:09 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) in a Thursday radio interview revealed he is exploring the potential options that would allow Congress to file civil or criminal charges against members of the Obama administration and even President Barack Obama himself.

Citing the Obama administration’s delay in the implementation of the employer mandate found in “Obamacare,” Marino told radio host David Madeira that the president continues to show a disregard for the law. He also argued Attorney General Eric Holder is never going to hold the Obama administration accountable.

“If the chief law enforcer of the country [Holder] will not enforce the law,” said Marino, “and the president decides to break the law because he doesn’t like it, there has to be another mechanism by which we in Congress can … see if there are criminal charges we can file.”

Marino is looking to “investigate, identify and prosecute people within the administration, up to and including the president if it comes to that,” according to Sarah Wolf, Marino’s spokeswoman.

How about prosecuting Holder for sending employees of the DOJ to organize demonstrations that interfered with the progress of justice in the Zimmerman case?

Talking the talk is not walking the walk.

If they are walking and not talking, then they just want to be Re elected.

Homey don’t play that no mo.

Obama is moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler. He’s already positioned himself above the law. IMO

I believe this as much as I believe Boner’s claim the vast majority of House repubs want an amnesty bill.

Could you imagine a power like that in the hands of a Democrat Congress against a Republican president?

I sure hope somebody steps up. Darryl Issa is filthy dirty and he's not going to do anything serious. In fact, I have no doubt he'll do what he can to cover for Ubama like he did in the IRS hearing.

LOIS LERNER: "I did nothing wrong and now I am invoking my 5th amendment right to answer no further questions."
ISSA: "Well, okay then. We're done here, have a nice weekend. This hearing is over."
EVERYBODY ELSE: "WTF???"

That committee had Lerner right in front of them and Issa cut her loose before anybody even knew what was happening. She will never be back. Case closed.
IRS scandal? What IRS scandal?

Obama will simply pardon himself and Holder if it came to that.

You are correct sir. It ain't going to happen, not now, not ever. Why do these chumps even bring it up, knowing they won't do anything about it.

I apologise ahead of time..

But... have there been ANY NE “REPUBs” in the last 4 decades that would be considered ‘Conservative’ down south?

A little late? 6years in? They should already have committees assigned way back in the first term compiling documents and cases against these criminals.

All talk..

The GOP is behind treason, and allowing fraud,
and allowing America to be destroyed by
RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.

THE GOP MUST BE STOPPED.

Good luck with that Tommy boy. The “establishment” won’t let it go past your desk. It has been tried before and NOTHING has ever happened.

The House holds the purse strings.

Refuse to fund the Justice Dept. until Holder is gone. Refuse to fund Obamacare & other pet projects of Obama until he starts following the law. Cut the IRS budget so much that they are forced to fire thousands of bureaucrats. Stop voting for the continuing resolution. SHUT THIS CORRUPT GOVERNMENT DOWN!!!

This is the way it is supposed to work.

I would like to see some kind of investigative/prosecutorial group, independent of BOTH the Executive & Legislative branches, that can throw the crooks in jail for breaking the law; perhaps attached to the Supreme Court.

Recall that the corruption is not limited to the Executive Branch. Numerous thieves, perverts, & tax frauds have been given a pass in Congress. In Congress they are called Ethics Violations, while for the rest of us they are called Felonies.

As it exists now & with the direction it is taking, the Executive branch is increasingly ignoring Congress, the USSC, & the law. Congress & the USSC are neutered by partisanship. The Imperial Presidency must be stopped. Congressmen & bureaucrats must be held accountable for their crimes.

If during his tenure a US AG knows crimes are being committed by persons within the executive branch of government but due to political reasons refuses to investigate and indict these persons, can the US AG once out of office after a new administration arrives and pursues these indictments?
