If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there’s someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.
The situation revolves around an oft-repeated statement by Rep. Sestak, D-Pa., that he had been offered a job by the Obama administration in exchange for a decision to drop out of a senatorial primary against longtime Obama supporter Sen. Arlen Specter. READ MORE AT SOURCE

White House Offered Romanoff Job Too
Allegations that the White House offered Joe Sestak a job in exchange for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Senate race echo an earlier report of a job offer to candidate Andrew Romanoff in Colorado.
On September 27, 2009 the Denver Post reported that the Obama administration offered Senate candidate Romanoff a position if he canceled plans to run for the Democratic nomination against incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet. READ MORE AT SOURCE
UPDATED: MAY 28
Internal report issued Friday released by White House.
This report really will not help Obama, the report shows that a crime was committed by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Does anyone think that Emanuel would have did this without the OK from Obama or Obama knowing of it? Not a chance! Sean Hannity was all over this tonight on Fox News so releasing the report on Friday didn’t work this time Obama.
White House Used Bill Clinton to Try to Get Sestak Out of Pennsylvania Race
The White House used former President Bill Clinton to offer an unpaid advisory position to Rep. Joe Sestak in hopes of persuading him to drop his Pennsylvania Senate primary challenge to President Barack Obama’s favored candidate, according to an internal report issued Friday.
the report said White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel enlisted Clinton’s help as a go-between with Sestak. Clinton agreed to raise the offer of a seat on a presidential advisory board or another executive board if Sestak dropped his bid, “which would avoid a divisive Senate primary,” the report said.

W.H. Asked Bill Clinton to Approach Sestak on Job

Neither the White House nor Mr. Sestak’s response satisfied Republican leaders.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said the White House response is further proof the administration needs to “open itself” to an independent investigation.
“In the three months since Joe Sestak first made his allegation, the White House has denied, stonewalled and is now trying to downplay the claims with an unsubstantiated memo,” Mr. Steele said. “This memo frankly raises more questions: What was Bill Clinton authorized to offer? Did President Obama sign off on this conversation before it took place?”
Mr. Sestak, a former Navy admiral, made the assertion about a “high-ranking” job offer at least twice once to a local cable television interviewer Feb. 18 and again Sunday. He has steadfastly declined to say who approached him and which job was discussed. Mr. Sestak, however, has said he would cooperate in any investigation. READ MORE AT SOURCE
It will be interesting to watch how Obama and his crooks lie their way out of this crime. Well that is if Sestak will tell who it was that offer him the job to drop out of the race. We might not see this investigated until after the November elections and we have more republicans in congress.
