Obama Says 'Official' Explanation Coming 'Shortly' on Alleged Sestak Job Offer

From Fox News

President Obama said Thursday that the White House is preparing to issue a formal explanation regarding the allegation that it offered Rep. Joe Sestak a job to drop out of the Democratic primary race against Sen. Arlen Specter.

The president, addressing the matter in public for the first time since the Pennsylvania congressman leveled the claim in February, said the statement should answer questions
about the claim and insisted "nothing improper" happened.

"There will be an official response shortly on the Sestak matter," Obama said, when asked about the issue by Fox News at the president's press conference. "I mean shortly -- I don't mean weeks or months. ... I can assure the public that nothing improper took place."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has also said nothing improper happened, but refused to elaborate when asked repeatedly about the charge at Thursday's briefing.

Sestak, who did not drop out and won the race against Specter last week, repeated his allegation in an interview on Sunday, but also declined to elaborate.

Obama White House probe of Obama White House finds no Obama White House impropriety on Sestak

They are obviously going to make every attempt to circle the wagons around Obama, that is all they got these days.

The question remains, what did Obama know and when did he know it? Was he involved directly or indirectly with the bribe and who is willing to fall on their sword for him? Will it be Sestak, Rahm or will they try to dodge the whole deal?

It is not the charges, it is the coverup. This will be a problem.

I hope they start smelling blood in the water. To claim that the offer of the job and the request for him to leave the race was like night and day is ignoring the obvious truths. Also, just because they are doing dirty deals all the time doesn't give them a pass on this dirty deal.

So when it comes to this type of quid pro quo, it’s against the law. Period.

But here’s the problem: no one is talking.


The White House checked into the matter itself.

Wow. That’s a relief. After all, the Obama folks tout themselves as the most open, transparent and accountable administration in history.

But merely saying “nothing inappropriate” took place just doesn’t pass muster.

"6:30 propaganda nightly news & entertainment shows still silent on the Obama bribe."

That's fine. It's better if the actual indictments come in October. Two weeks before the election.

So true. I hope Colin Powell is there.

“The silence is rapidly becoming deafening,” said Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee. “How many days are needed and how many hours of negotiations between Joe Sestak and the Obama administration are required to simply tell the truth?”

How interested is Barack Obama in discussing Rep. Joe Sestak's allegation that the White House offered him a big government job if he would not challenge Sen. Arlen Specter, the White House's favored candidate in the Pennsylvania Senate primary?

Well, when the president was asked about it at his news conference Thursday -- the question didn't come up until the very last reporter was called on -- the normally long-winded Obama spoke for a total of 32 seconds.
