Only the Obama Regime would have the cheek necessary to refuse action on a House subpoena by claiming it does not trust the motives of Government Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa! Concerned by widespread reports that personal information is not secure on the ObamaCare signup website HealthCare.gov, Issa’s Oversight Committee subpoenaed security testing documents from MITRE Corporation, the IT firm hired by Health and Human Services to perform Security Control Assessments of the site. Jim Esquea, HHS Assistant Secretary for Legislation, wrote to Committee Chair Issa, claiming that HHS (now obviously enjoying complete control over MITRE) would be delighted to share information with the Committee, but was unsure “…whether the Committee [would] work with [HHS] to ensure the sensitive information contained in [the] documents is adequately protected.”
