Rep. Issa Considered a Security Risk
Posted - 12/13/2013 1:08:58 PM | show profile | flag this post
In fairness, the guy is probably the worst leaker in DC.
And HHS has a legitimate complaint in their reason not to turn over all the material he's requested:
"[HHS] won’t turn over documents related to the security of the Healthcare.gov website because it can’t trust him to keep secret information that could give hackers a roadmap to wreak havoc on the system."
He's already leaked the names of Libyans who assisted American forces in the Benghazi attack -- putting those people's lives at risk.
And he leaked secret wiretaps he requested for his "Fast and Furious" investigation -- which compromised investigations and court cases against Mexican drug cartels.
Now he wants security tests that could reveal personal information from millions of Americans.
Why should anyone trust him?

"Security risk," not "intelligence risk?"

There's no risk of...
any intelligence with Issa.

Here's what a douchebag Issa is...
He orchestrated the whole recall for Gray Davis sensing he could get him thrown out of office and ride the wave of voter discontent into the Governor's chair. The best part is the day that Arnold declared his candidacy and Issa knew it was over. Cried like a little baby. Made Boner look emotionally strong. What a piece of crap.

There is the problem of ignoring him...
as a Committee Chair, he has subpoena powers. And he HAS leaked sensitive information that has benefited terrorist groups and drug cartels -- putting U.S. allies and informants' lives in danger.
As much as we'd like to think of him as a joke, he is a danger to hard-working people putting their lives on the line for this country.
And THAT is not a joke.

This administration is all of a sudden worried about security? About leaks?
Compromised investigations? What investigations?
Court cases? What court cases?
Rep. Issa in no way, shape, or form put the lives of Libyans at risk. The information Issa released was already online for anyone who cared to know.
You willingness to swallow anything this administration feeds you is scary.
This is about obstruction of justice. HHS has no choice. This administration wants to hide their incompetence and buffoonery. I understand that.
The truth will come out. Issa isn't above politics. So go ahead, piss him off.

The information got online -- because Issa leaked it.
Just like he leaked selctive parts of his committee's other investigations, or directed the Treasury Department IG to investigate ONLY claims by TEA Party groups of IRS investigations into their tax-exempt status or his selective editing of reports on Obamacare.
Issa had proven himself unreliable and untrustworthy.
Read the links. They points to his history of leaking and cherry picking information.
