Many questions have been raised regarding President Obama’s unilateral decision to ignore the law, and the wishes of Congress, to release five deadly and dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo prison.
People are demanding answers, and when even top Democrats are questioning the move, it demands an investigation.
There are already Congressional committees investigating the Benghazi attack, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, and the widespread corruption and carelessness that is rampant in the VA, among other scandalous activity perpetrated by Obama and his administration.
Now Wisconsin Representative and former Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan is promising a Congressional investigation into Obama’s illegal prisoner swap that provided “material support” to the Taliban, according to Politico.
Rep. Paul Ryan pledged Friday night that House Republicans will investigate President Barack Obama’s deal to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
For now, he said, the Senate is a “graveyard of good ideas” and Republicans must focus on aggressive oversight as their best bet to hold Obama accountable.
“I’m part of the IRS investigation,” Ryan told about 600 people in a ballroom at the Hotel Roanoke. “We’ve got the Benghazi investigation, the Veterans Affairs investigation, and we’re going to do an investigation about this troop transfer with the Taliban. So we’ve got a lot on our plate.”
Ryan was in Virginia to rally support for GOP Senate candidate Ed Gillespie, and encouraged Republicans to set aside their few differences and unite in support of the cause that is removing Harry Reid from his position as Senate Majority Leader.
“We agree on the same principles. We actually all agree on the same policies … Every now and again we disagree on tactics,” he said. “So it’s very important that as a party we put those differences aside, we put them in perspective, and like Mel Gibson said in that great movie ‘Braveheart,’ ‘we need to unite the clans!’”
Let’s hope that Rep. Ryan is right, and the House is really going to investigate the prisoner exchange. It is clear that Obama ignored the law and bypassed Congress. What is less clear is, how much “material support” did Obama give to the terrorists? Did he only return their top leaders that had been captured, or was cash involved in the deal as well?
These questions, and many more, must be answered. And in all likelihood, Obama supporters will not like the answers to those questions. Their dear leader has blatantly violated a law he himself signed last year, and is also in violation of a statute that carries a stiff criminal penalty.
President Obama needs to be impeached, arrested, and made to pay for his criminal actions, for this fiasco along with his numerous other scandals.
