Bring it on. This is a huge loser for Democrats and the idea that these ghouls want to prosecute the whistle blowers is absolutely revolting.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest on Wednesday dismissed claims that Planned Parenthood has illegally profited from fetal tissue harvesting, saying the organization holds itself to “the highest ethical standards.”
Earnest defended Planned Parenthood one day after it was targeted by a second undercover video that attempts to portray an organization official as haggling for prices of fetal organs with a medical research firm.
The footage was secretly filmed by anti-abortion activists in the Center for Medical Progress, which has threatened many more videos until the government cracks down on Planned Parenthood.
When asked in a news conference if Obama had concerns about the video, Earnest raised his concerns with the video itself.
Earnest pointed to media reports that raise “significant concerns about the way those videos were selectively edited to distort not just the words of the individual speaking, but also Planned Parenthood.”
“They subscribe [to] and implement the highest ethical standards in carrying out their operations,” he said of the nonprofit health group.
You would think he’s a spokesman for the baby-killers.
Republicans have seized on the hidden-camera controversy over the last week and a half.
Two senators running for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), have threatened to add an amendment to defund Planned Parenthood to this month’s must-pass highway bill.
House Dems just sent letter to AG Lynch asking for probe into Center for Medical Progress over its sketchy Planned Parenthood videos.

That’s an actual “reporter” using the word sketchy. We can almost guarantee she hasn’t watched the unedited versions, since she could never utter something so idiotic if she did.
These gangster tactics can only help opponents of Planned Parenthood:

This will only become more humiliating for the Party of Death when videos keep rolling out. Even then we’ll still be treated to biased “reporting” such as this:
Planned Parenthood has strongly denied any wrongdoing that is implied in the heavily edited videos.
This ignores the fact the unedited video is readily available to anyone.
