Gibbs: WH conversations with Sestak clean

Read the Commonwealth Confidential report here:

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, after ducking questions for weeks on the subject, said he was assured that administration’s contacts with Rep. Joe Sestak were “not problematic.”
Sestak said last month that the White House offered him a high-ranking federal job to forego a primary challenge to Sen. Arlen Specter (D.,Pa.), but Sestak has since declined to provide details. The top Republican on the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, California’s Darrell Issa, has demanded answers from the White House, saying that somebody broke the law if such an offer was made.

Issa, in a television interview Monday, accused the White House of a “Nixonian” cover-up of Sestak’s allegation.

“I’m told that whatever conversations have been had are not problematic,” Gibbs said in response to questions during his daily briefing of the White House press. He said he had “talked to several people in the White House…I’ve talked to people that have talked to others in the White House.”
