Issa Directly Calls Clinton A Liar
The Market Ticker ^ | April 24, 2013 | Karl Denninger

Posted on 04/24/2013 9:40:37 AM PDT by SatinDoll

[video of Fox's interview with Rep.Issa where he states that Secretary Clinton lied to Congress about Benghazi.]

Now explain the problem I am about to lay out: Lying to Congress is a crime.

Anyone suborning perjury to Congress has committed a federal crime.

Where are the demands for indictments and, since we know Holder will not prosecute, where are the articles of impeachment against everyone involved up and down the line?

Oh yeah Issa, it's great that you bring this sort of thing forward but without a big bite to go with it you're whining -- and lying about your claimed "outrage."

Congress has the tools to put a stop to this crap by enforcing the law. That which the US AG refuses to prosecute can be and properly is grounds to impeach said AG (see Watergate.) That which The President refuses to direct the AG to prosecute when clear evidence of perjury before Congress is exposed gives grounds to Congress for his impeachment (again, see Watergate.)

If The Senate refuses to convict that is their right, but all revenue bills must originate in The House, and if Boehner had even one ball, say much less two, he and you could demand compliance and enforce that demand by refusing to fund anything until Holder and Obama prosecuted the people responsible or resigned and/or were impeached.

In short The House has full authority to resolve this, but you refuse to use it.

That makes you equal co-conspirators and accessories after the fact.

Have a nice day jack***.

The evidence contradicts Sec.H.Clinton's testimony before Congress.

Why isn't Congress holding her accountable for perjury? How many Republicans are being blackmailed or bribed into indifference?

Clintons (plural) lie.

It’s what they do.

I really doesn’t take blackmail or bribery. All it takes is Boehner and Co. refusing to allow the House Repubs to “go there” in regard to an impeachment proceeding against anyone in the administration. He considers it bad politics and that’s that...

We’ve been calling her a democrat for decades. Liar-democrat: Same thing.

“Lying to Congress is a crime.
Anyone suborning perjury to Congress has committed a federal crime.”

A crime with no penalty is not worth even mentioning. What penalty did Bill Clinton pay for committing perjury? Lost his law license? For someone that does not practice law, that is NO punishment.
What penalty did Eric Holder pay for lying to Congress?
He was censured? He is still Attorney General and still lying. I can not think of one politician that has been fined or jailed for perjury.

Joe Manchin had a group of Republicans on his yacht just before the vote on gun control.

Invited onboard for a few drinks and convivial discussions, after the Republicans were liquored up, call girls came on board the yacht and photos taken.

The blackmail doesn't have to be of the vicious sort. Just enough of a smear to cost a conservative the next election.

The Democrats, I'm sure, have tons of naughty behavior on video concerning John Boehner.

Issa starts a good investigation, but somehow they all peter out with no one getting charged with anything.

Republicans in Congress are neutered at their introductory meetings. Told what to say and how to say it.

I think Cruz missed that induction ceremony, but he will eventually be shut up.

It’s not like it’s all just blackmail.

The Democrat communist pack has killed more people than you can shake a stick at. A long stick.

Did Clinton lie about Bosnia (sniper fire there)? Or did she misspeak?

If there was light sniper fire, and she called it heavy sniper fire, that would be a misspeak. But CBS News found nothing to bolster what she said - quite the contrary in fact.

So... did Hillary lie about Benghazi?

Alert Henry Waxman. He's obsessed about perjury before Congress. I'm sure he'll be all over this like he was with Roger Clemens. /s

We don’t have a two party system anymore. They are all playing for the same team.

The question is, “Who are the owners”?

“We don't have a two party system anymore...”

That sums things up nicely, I think.

As to who are the owners, well I believe the answer is found in places like IMF, CFR, and an international banking consortium.

She is not being held accountable because the MSM is covering for her. When her husband was impeached, the MSM power was so strong that the Senate refused to even look at evidence.

Why is the Benghazi coverup not know about by the general population? Same reason.

We need more new media to be able to make an impeachment work. Freerepublic is part of it. Keep growing it.

“As long as Scooter Libby is in jail!”

About as classic a case of MSM power as could ever be made.

Issa should have filed articles of impeachment against Holder for lying to congress under oath during F&F! When they filed a false document, and then "undid it" later after being caught? Yeah, right!

Spiro Agnew was never convicted of PERJURY or even charged. He was convicted of TAX EVASION and ACCEPTING BRIBES. His punishment? $10,000.00 fine.

Nixon was not charged with any crime, Ford pardoned him before he could be.

Agnew was convicted of TAX EVASION and ACCEPTING BRIBES. Not perjury.

Sorry.

“After two appeals by Agnew, he finally resigned himself to the matter and a check for $268,482 was turned over to Maryland State Treasurer William S. James in early 1983.”

OK, so it wasn’t a fine.

AND it had NOTHING to do with perjury and that is what we were discussing. Now after several of these posts back and forth discussing Nixon and Agnew, I still am not aware of any politician that has been convicted and punished for perjury. I do know of several common folks that have been punished but the politicians just seem to have immunity.

The details hardly matter. What was the last time a prominent democrat was removed from office? Don’t get lost in the forest looking at trees.

And by the way Nixon hardly resigned out of his own volition. He was confronted by prominent republicans by telling him he would be impeached if he did not resign.

Again, name me one president, VP, Attorney General, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Treasury, Secretary of State or even a US Senatoe belonging to the democrat party was removed from office since I immigrated here 53 years ago.

Duke Cunningham comes to mind. Of course he was a Republican. Alcey Hastings (Democrat) was a federal judge who impeached and removed from office.

Of course, he was elected to Congress and has been there collecting the graft ever since.

But you are right, prominent politicians, especially Democrats are seldom if ever even prosecuted much less removed from office.

Boehner is stopping the process to make any of these people pay for their crimes and negligence.

There was a brave and outspoken Congressman from a Southern state that as much as said that Boehner is the problem.
