GOP Rep.: Valerie Jarrett ‘Seems to Have Her Tentacles’ in Every Scandal

One GOP congressman said the Obama administration’s stonewalling in congressional investigations always seem to lead to one White House official: senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. Representative Jason Chaffetz wouldn’t be surprised if Jarrett’s involvement also played a part in Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius​’s delay in providing requested documents to the House Oversight Committee.

“She seems to have her tentacles into every issue and every topic,” the Utah Republican, who serves on the House Oversight Committee, said on the Laura Ingraham Show on Friday. “Her name ultimately always comes up.”

Earlier on Friday, House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa threatened to subpoena documents from Health and Human Services if its secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, doesn’t provide requested documents to the committee by Monday. She is expected to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on October 30.
