Issa: Sestak Affair is an Impeachable Offense

Sunday, 30 May 2010 04:35 PM

The Obama administration’s offer of a job to Rep. Joe Sestak in exchange for his quitting a Senate bid is a crime and an impeachable offense, a leading Republican told Fox News Sunday.

Rep. Darrell Issa of California also said that, as with most crimes, the cover-up may actually be worse.

The explanation for the Sestak affair -- that former President Bill Clinton offered the Democratic congressman an unpaid position on an advisory board if he would drop his challenge against party-switching Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter -- is simply not plausible, Issa added. As a sitting congressman Sestak couldn't have served on a presidential commission, Issa sad.

"It's a crime because they've admitted that they offered this position ... So that begs the real question. Do we believe this is a further cover-up because he's -- they're now talking about a job that President Clinton himself should have known Sestak couldn't take? " he said.

"They're now coming up with a nonplausible answer," Issa told Fox News.

On Friday, the White House revealed that Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had asked Clinton to talk to Sestak about a presidential appointment if Sestak would suspend his bid for the Democratic Senate nomination.
