Obamacare Contractor to Comply with Subpoena

Ordered to testify before House oversight committee

|

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 HealthCare.gov despite warnings about security vulnerabilities."
