Steve King Wants To Know: Are Obama Family And Friends Exempt From The Law?

By  

WASHINGTON - (NewsBlaze) The immigration status of President Obama's Uncle Omar was described by Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King as a "worthy topic" to bring up up with the chairman of the [Judiciary] committee and subcommittee "and that would be very good for the American people to see drunken uncle Omar testify and maybe even Auntie Onyongo."

King's remarks came from a query by Newsblaze Washington Correspondent Randy Foreman at the monthly Heritage Foundation's Conversations with Conservatives held in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol. The congressman added that he might "have the opportunity to take the matter in the next hour" in the Judiciary Committee which met right after Conversations with Conservatives that the congressman departed early to.

King, after the initial arrest of the President's Uncle cut a web video posted on official House of Representative websites in which he invited Uncle Omar and his personal attorney to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, to explain away any potential favoritism shown to him to prevent deportation.

The controversy surrounding Omar's relationship to the President has intensified in recent months as Omar revealed in open court that the future President did cohabitate with him during his college years, something that the White House has denied even to the point of saying that he had never met his uncle.

King summed up his remarks on the issue by saying "it looks like if you are an Obama friend you are exempt from the law, and that is something this congress should examine."

Other websites have picked up the Newsblaze question all the way from the Daily Caller to Pro and Anti "Birther" twitter accounts. Some sites assumed, without asking NewsBlaze, that this question had been arranged with Congressman King beforehand, but that was not true. The question was for our information on the case that we had been watching for some time, in which other media appeared to have little interest.
