In a letter sent Wednesday and obtained exclusively by The Hill, Issa seeks a second interview with Tony Trenkle to clarify his testimony on HealthCare.gov security concerns.Since it can be hard to keep up with Issa's rotating manufactured scandals, this is the one about how the administration is covering up potential security vulnerabilities in the federal exchange. There have been no security breaches of the website and no one's personal information has been hacked. In fact, the most credible potential threat to the website that anyone as of yet has identified is Issa, who has a penchant for leaking cherry-picked sensitive information for political ends.
“Based upon additional information obtained by the Committee, it appears that you were not candid and fully forthcoming with the Committee,” Issa said. “We therefore write to ask that you make yourself available as soon as possible for another transcribed interview in order to clarify your role and actions implementing ObamaCare.”
That's why MITRE Corporation, the federal contractor overseeing security of the website, and the Department of Health and Human Services were reluctant to share sensitive information about how the site's security is structured with Issa, though he did eventually get it. With his track record (and considering he happily posted some of that information online, when he published a letter he sent to Sebelius), it's hard not to imagine him actually inviting a security breach that he could then capitalize on.
Since he hasn't been able to find a real scandal yet, maybe he's going to create one.
