Lawyer: Obama White House To Chrysler Creditor...That's A Nice Reputation You've Got Here, Be A Shame If Anything Happened To It UPDATE: Jake Tapper Is Asking WH About This UPDATE x2 White House Denies

We've talked about Obama's outrageous efforts to demonize Chrysler debt holders who simply wanted to enforce their legal rights or carry our their legal obligations a couple of times on this blog.

Now it turns out the Obama administration crime family may have threatened to ruin the reputation of a creditor who did not want to 'sacrifice' enough for Don Obama's liking.

One of my clients was directly threatened by the White House and in essence compelled to withdraw its opposition to the deal under the threat that the full force of the White House Press Corps would destroy its reputation if it continued to fight.

If true, this is problematic on a number of levels.

First, the administration is making Nixon look like Mr. Rogers when it comes to dealing with its enemies.

Second, the supposed White House press corps seems to be considered an adjunct arm of the administration. They've gone from the Enchanted Media (tm) to The Enforcers in record time.

It's a brave new world boys and girls.

UPDATE: The best MSM reporter out there is on it. So far the most articulate White House evah! has no comment. At least this won't disappear down the blog memory hole.

Update II: Tapper now has the White House denial.

The White House said the story was false.

"The charge is completely untrue," said White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, "and there's obviously no evidence to suggest that this happened in any way."

Will there be follow up?
