Secret Hagel Donor?: White House Spox Ducks Question on ‘Friends of Hamas’

Ben Shapiro @ Breitbart:

On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.”

Yesterday, 25 senators sent a letter to Hagel demanding information on his foreign funding. Hagel has refused all such requests, prompting the senators to state, “in the judgment of the undersigned, a Committee vote on your nomination should not occur unless and until you provide the requested information.”

Called for comment and reached via telephone, Associate Communications Director at the White House Eric Schultz identified himself, heard the question, was silent for several seconds, and then hung up the phone immediately without comment.

    There is only ONE news outlet covering this:
    The Washington Post.
    And there, it is in ”the blog” section.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/02/07/what-is-chuck-hagel-trying-to-hide/
    In that blog entry, Jenifer Rubin asks, “Why hasn’t the White House told him to provide the information?”
    That’s a good question.
    There are tax statutes and foreign-lobbying requirements at issue, and yet the Senate has no way of knowing if he complied with all of these, let alone whether the donors and investors are problematic.
    Because Sen. Levin is holding back on the vote until Hagel complies he (Levin) is possibly throwing Hagel under the bus FOR Obama who might be too lazy or dim to realize that’s where Hagel has to go.
    Did you know Hagel could insist on a closed door meeting about his finances?
    And yet he doesn’t.
