Sestak Was Ineligible for job Clinton Offered
Byron York, Washington Examiner:

In a little-noticed passage Friday, the New York Times reported that Rep. Joe Sestak was not eligible for a place on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, the job he was reportedly offered by former President Bill Clinton. And indeed a look at the Board’s website reveals this restriction:
The Board consists of not more than 16 members appointed by the President from among individuals who are not employed by the Federal Government. Members are distinguished citizens selected from the national security, political, academic, and private sectors.

GOP Asks FBI to Investigate ‘Collusion,’ Obstruction of Justice in Sestak Case
Byron York, Washington Examiner:

All the Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have joined Rep. Darrell Issa, ranking GOP member of the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, in writing a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller over the Joe Sestak affair. The lawmakers urge Mueller to investigate “collusion” and possible obstruction of justice involving the White House, former President Bill Clinton, and Sestak’s brother, who was consulted during the drafting of the new White House report.

“Not surprisingly, the White House’s own report clears White House officials and former President Bill Clinton of wrongdoing,” the lawmakers write. “But assurances by the Obama White House that no laws were broken are like the Nixon White House promising it did nothing illegal in Watergate. Clearly an independent investigation is necessary to determine once and for all what really happened.”

and on it goes...

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton did not answer questions (see Tolbert Report video). And as mentioned previously, keep watching Darrell Issa. (I wonder if he'll be offered anything.) He is the point man, apparently very willingly. Track Byron York here.

Joe says a "member of the administration" offered him a job.

Since when is Bill Clinton a member of the Obama administration?

I don't know what Bubba was offered, but it is clear they look at him as a blotter -- a scandal sponge. Get him all soaked with it and wring him out over the drain.
