    TRENDING: RNC maps out White House foul(Edited)

    Really? With everything that is going on this is news?

    It's never too early to play hardball presidential politics. Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus penned a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking for an investigation of an "apparent crime" committed by President Barack Obama Monday.

    According to Priebus, the crime was committed by the president, in the Map Room, with a video.

    Priebus accused the president of recording a fundraising appeal in the Map Room of the White House. He said it is "not part of the White House residence, but rather 'occupied in the discharge of official duties,'" and called for the Department of Justice to investigate.

    The Map Room is located on the ground floor of the White House.

    "According to multiple individuals with knowledge of the White House's rooms and layout, the video appears to have been recorded in the Map Room...the White House Counsel has indicated that the video was filmed somewhere in the residential portion of the White House," Priebus said.

    It is illegal to solicit contributions for a political purpose from any area of the White House "occupied in the discharge of official duties," or, used for purposes of official White House business.

    But the Map Room is considered to be part of the White House residence, and has been for decades. The residence is not subject to restrictions placed on rooms used for official business.

    White House spokesman Eric Schultz told CNN, "As we've said in the past, this was wholly appropriate and routinely done in past administrations."

    "Many lawyers and experts have all said publicly that what this administration is doing is completely above board," Schultz fired back.

    Despite the RNC's claims, both Republican and Democratic administrations have considered the Map Room as part of the White House residence.

    Both Presidents Bush (43) and Clinton filmed ads there. You're right, this is what Priebus wants to spend time on? Jeez.

    Im no fan of democrats.... but this seems a little stupid.
    Who gives a ****... moving on.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
