At Last Moment, Obama Officials Refuse to Testify at OPM Hack Hearings

The most transparent administration in history, with not a smidgen of corruption in its ranks.

Officials from the OPM, Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of Management and Budget cancelled their scheduled appearance before a closed-door session of the House Armed Services Committee, citing issues with the briefing being "on the record."


"OPM, Homeland Security, and OMB's last-minute refusal to appear before this committee is unacceptable, [Rep. Mac Thornbury, head of the Armed Services Committee[ said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. "Their excuse, that the testimony would be on the record, is disturbing."

If it's on the record, there's a transcript of all the lies they plan on telling, which could be used in a prosecution later.
