On Fox News’ Political Insiders, Easter Sunday, Doug Schoen, John LeBoutillier, and Pat Caddell joined host Julie Banderas to talk about the federal charges against Senator Bob Menendez, which came the same week the DOJ decided not to prosecute Lois Lerner.
The insiders all agreed that the indictment is politically motivated and designed to send a message to the rest of congress.
“It sends a chilling feeling to any other Democrats who are thinking about crossing the Obama White House,” LeBoutillier said.
Democrat pollster Pat Caddell claimed that the Political Insiders was the first show to predict that the Menendez case would become politicized by the “Criminal Injustice Department” which he added, “is run by a political hack – who when he’s not playing the race card, he’s covering up scandal after scandal – be it Solyndra, the IRS, or whatever. They did this to Menendez … to chill the other members. They went after the one Democrat who was speaking with great conscience on this issue. They had this three years ago – the public integrity section – which is itself an oxymoron – is the same section that took out Senator Ted Stevens and got reprimanded after he lost his election, by withholding evidence.”
Caddell continued, “76% of the American people want congress to have a say. Barack Obama intends to bypass the congress to the UN.
Later Caddell pointed out that the charges against Menendez involve women and trips, and so forth, but, “you got Bill Clinton out there going to Orgy Island with a convicted pedophile. You don’t hear anything about that,” he said.
“The corruption on the Hill is unbelievable – This cover-up of Lois Lerner and the cover-up of Benghazi are worse than anything covered up in Watergate.”
Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl said the indictment of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who is a strong supporter of Israel and opposes President Barack Obama going ahead with an Iran nuclear deal without congressional approval, will make it harder for Republicans to persuade other Democrats to go against the president and override a veto on Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) legislation calling for congressional oversight.
