    I wonder how bad this is going to get. I find the WH comments interesting:

    In a statement, White House spokesman Eric Schultz said that the administration had "cooperated extensively" with the committee's request for documents.

    ["extensively” does not equal completely]

    "All of the materials that have been disclosed affirm what we said on day one: this was a merit based decision made by the Department of Energy," he said.

    [What do the materials the WH has not disclosed show?]

    "We'd like to see as much passion in House Republicans for creating jobs as we see in this investigation," Schultz added.

    [attempted deflection]

    The media cares more about making Herman Cain into a sexual predator

    Cain hasn't helped himself at all, though.

    I'll have to dig up the articles but it was basically WH legal counsel saying 1) this is political so they won't comply, 2) it will take a lot of effort and the POTUS has better things to do, 3) it is an unreasonable request.

    They should start contempt proceedings immediately, should the White House fail to comply.
