Scroll down for video
No doubt this 44-second video clip has all the drama of a soap opera, and perhaps that was Jason Chaffetz’s intent with the well-scripted and flawlessly played exchange that took place within the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, hearing, right up to and including that dramatic moment when chairman Chafferz waved a signed subpoena and then exclaimed to the hapless Jason Herring, the acting Assistant FBI Director for congressional affairs, “You are hereby served.”
What Chaffetz was demanding from Herring were the un-redacted documents that apparently the FBI is attempting to hide from the oversight committee.
Stating to the Assistant FBI Director: “You don’t get to decide what I get to see, I was elected by some 800,000 people to come to Congress and see classified information.”
Then came that dramatic moment when the Utah lawmaker asked Herring if he was prepared to hand over FBI files with “with no redactions?”
And when Herring could not give a definitive answer, that’s when Chafferz lowered the boom and announced: “Then I’m going to issue a subpoena, and I’m going to do it right now…You are hereby served.”
And while this made for great TV, it remains to be seen if the FBI will comply with the subpoena, or will they simply ignore the bluster and theater that has sadly become the hallmark of a gutless congress.
Congressmen Jason Chaffetz is well intentioned in his effort to get to the truth, however he like most if congress are simply out of their league, when it comes to uncovering malfeasance within the Obama Administration, in that Obama is a master at deception, and intimidation, and has been running roughshod around congress for almost 8-years.
Moreover the public has witnessed outright corruption, criminality and lawlessness directed directly at the American people, while congress has done nothing but issue worthless ultimatums.
