Obama Tried to Squelch Unfavorable Testimony on LightSquared

I would say “paging the DOJ”, but Holder’s too busy suing states for enforcing immigration laws and raiding guitar factories over Indian wood.

Gen. William  Shelton, head of the Air Force Space Command, told House members in a classified briefing earlier this month that he was pressured to change prepared congressional testimony in a way that would favor a large company funded by Philip Falcone, a major Democratic donor, congressional sources told Fox News.

Republicans have raised questions about whether the project pursued by the company, LightSquared, is being unduly expedited by the Obama administration, which has pushed for national wireless network upgrades.

The Virginia-based satellite and broadband communications company has plans to build a nationwide, next-generation, 4G phone network that many, including Shelton, think would seriously hinder the effectiveness of high-precision GPS receiver systems, a product used most commonly by the United States military.

A source familiar with the technology told Fox News that the LightSquared spectrum would be 5 billion times stronger than the military’s GPS system, rendering the military’s system almost useless.

“Imagine trying to have a telephone conversation while your neighbors are hosting a rock concert,” the source told Fox News. “That’s the situation the military is facing.”

Shelton, in testimony Thursday before a House Armed Services subcommittee, refused to suggest that interference problems could be mitigated, as he allegedly was being pressured to say. 

A House Armed Services Committee staff member confirmed to Fox News that when asked whether he was pressured to change public testimony he had prepared for the hearing Thursday, Shelton said he was “being asked to say things he didn’t agree with.” 

It’s unclear who exactly pressured Shelton, but it’s possible the individuals are in White House, Department of Defense or the Office of Management and Budget, which each approve military testimony prepared for Congress. The House staff member also told Fox News a copy of Shelton’s prepared testimony was leaked to LightSquared.

Besides Falcone,

“the company’s biggest investors…include Obama donorand current U.S. ambassador to South Africa Donald Gips, Obama friend and investment manager George Haywood… and Barack Obama​ himself, who was “an early investor and came to the presidency a firm believer in expanding broadband.”

Until now, the Clinton-Gore-Reno regime was the most corrupt in recent history. 
Their legacy of Chinagate, Travelgate, Filegate, Pardongate, and perjury could fill volumes of criminal records. For the Chinagate treason alone, Clinton and Gore belong under Leavenworth, and Janet Reno’s refusal to prosecute or investigate any of their crimes should have put her in a cell right next to them.

Obama’s graft, obstruction of justice, constitutional violations with the authoritarian takeover of healthcare and 2/3rds of the auto industry, gunrunning to Mexican thugs, eco-scams, affinity for Islamofascists, and feeding the maws of his Keynesian economic agenda with billions of dollars in taxpayer’s money, will go down in the annals of history as the new worst presidency of all time.
