Dick Morris Joe Sestak: Dick Morris Suggestion to make White House and Sestak Talk

Deck Morris suggests, via an idea gleaned from Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano, that Pennsylvania Attorney General, Tom Corbett, convene a grand jury, bring in Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA), maybe Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief-of-Staff and, maybe, Barack Obama to testify under oath.

The State of Pennsylvania and it's voters were obviously compromised if a job offer was made to Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) to step out of the U.S. Senate race to make smooth sailing for RINO defecter-turned-Democrat, Arlen Specter. If Sestak had taken the White House's offer, he would have tainted the election process - affected the race and the choices available to voters. The offer would be considered a bribe, and could amount to felony charges for someone. When the illegal offer was made, Joe Sestak was bound by House Rules to report it. He didn't. Instead, he was ticked at Obama for attempting to drum him out of a Senate seat, and made the claim to the press. Sestak's story hasn't wavered. Someone is lying - either Sestak or the White House.

Tom Corbett is a Republican running for Pennsylvania governor:

Corbett’s jurisdiction stems from the concept of universal jurisdiction, now accepted virtually everywhere.  The concept is simple.  If someone on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River fires a pistol across the Hudson and the bullet from the pistol hits someone on the NY side, where did the crime take place? For about 600 years, the answer would have been in NY, where the harm was caused. Under the Reagan administration, and in response to urgings from the Meese Justice Department, the courts began to accept the doctrine of universal jurisdiction. This principle gives jurisdiction to law enforcement in the place wherever any act occurred that may have resulted in a crime. Thus, under our scenario above, the shooter could be prosecuted in NJ or NY.
Thus, if Cong. Sestak was in one of his homes, in PA or VA, when he received a telephone call offering him a job if he withdrew from the PA Senate primary against Sen. Arlen Specter, law enforcement authorities in PA and VA — both of which have Republican state Attorneys General — can subpoena Cong. Sestak to testify before a state grand jury and compel him to answer the who, what, when, and where that everyone has a right to know.i
Apparently it is too much to expect Sestak to do the right and lawful thing. He either lied, or he didn't. He needs to 'speak' it because he brought it out. Now he needs to put it to bed. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is pushing for an investigation separate from the White House or the Department of Justice. This sounds like a jewel of a plan - if the offer was made to Sestak while he was in the state of Pennsylvania.
