O-Care contractor to comply with Issa subpoena


House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) announced Friday that an ObamaCare contractor would comply with a subpoena he issued, despite efforts by the Obama administration and some Democrats to keep the documents out of his hands.

After consulting with its legal counsel, MITRE Corp., a contractor working to assess security issues with the ObamaCare website, determined that it “has no alternative but to comply with the terms of a Congressional subpoena absent some form of judicial intervention.”

MITRE was the second ObamaCare contractor to say on Friday it would comply with the disputed subpoena, following CSSi.

“MITRE’s decision is a rejection of efforts by the White House to obstruct oversight,” Issa said in a statement. “The American people deserve an honest assessment of decisions by the Administration to proceed with the October 1 launch of despite warnings about security vulnerabilities.”

  1. MITRE isn't your normal corporation. They are an FFRDC, fecerally funded research and development center. Smart folks and they are well aware who funds them, the House. Usually a line item but not always. Most of their funds are specifically directed but they also receive some general funding for discretionary research directed by their management.
    Or at least that was the case before I retired 10 years ago. I worked with them on some FAA projects.
