When President Richard Nixon had cabinet members suspected of being involved in Watergate an independent council was established. However, Obama has at least two major scandals involving members of his cabinet, and he has decided to investigate...himself? The White House has announced that they will look into their own activities pertaining to issues such as the Solyndra case, to see if any improprieties may have occurred. Keep in mind the fact that they have refused to release visitor logs of people that have visited the Presidential staff in the White House despite the fact they are supposed to be matters of public record for good reason.
We also do not know what is on Obama's Blackberry device. Obama is addicted to his device, so much so, that they had to create a more secure version for him when he took over the Presidency. His communications via Blackberry will not be seen by any investigating team. They are private.
Obama's cabinet has been caught explicitly lying regarding Fast and Furious and Solyndra. Their heads have perjured themselves under oath. While it is true that some like Kenneth Monson of ATF have resigned, he was handsomely rewarded with a safe and secure lateral transfer to another government job within the Department of Justice. No prison time, no charges brought, no justice. The BATF, Homeland Security, Energy, all fall within the Executive Branch. Their heads have all lied. An independent council must be created and the White House should be held accountable to the law. Everything should be open to scrutiny including Obama's little Blackberry. Anything less is a travesty of justice, and tyranny will continue.
