Dems Worried GOP House Will Subpoena Birth Certificate


From The Blaze:

Obama, beware.
That’s the warning from the House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC). In an interview with, Clyburn said that should Republicans retake the House this fall, Congress will be “gridlocked” and the White House will be busy responding to subpoenas from Republicans.
Clyburn is refering to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Oversight panel, and his statement that he will issue “subpoenas everywhere” should Republicans prevail. But Clyburn goes a step further and speculates on the content of those subpoenas:
The White House will be full-time responding to subpoenas about where the president may or may not have been born, whether his mother and father were ever married, and whether his wife’s family is from Georgetown or Sampit.
The question of Obama’s citizenship is usually referred to as the “birther” argument. The Hill reports that Issa‘s office calls Clyburn’s hypothesis “ridiculous.”
“The Democratic Caucus doesn’t take Jim Clyburn seriously — Americans shouldn’t take his ridiculous claims seriously either,” said Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella in an e-mail to the Washington-based paper.
A call to the Majority Whip’s office seeking comment about what Clyburn is basing his claim off of was not immediately returned.
