ABC News’ Devin Dwyer (@devindwyer [2]) reports:   The Republican National Committee has asked the Justice Department to investigate what it calls a matter of “grave concern:” President Obama’s appearance in a campaign video filmed inside the White House.

“If President Obama recorded the video in the Map Room, then it appears he has committed a crime under federal law,” RNC chairman Reince Priebus wrote in a letter [3] to Attorney General Eric Holder.

The letter attempts to revive an issue Republicans first raised weeks ago [4]but that has failed to gain much attention or traction.  Many good government groups and independent legal experts have dismissed [4]the claims.

Still, Priebus says Obama’s use of a “place of official government business” to solicit political contributions is against the law, and that all money collected in response to the video should be returned. He stopped short of calling for the appointment of a special counsel.
