Posted on 11/09/2012 1:22:57 PM PST by pabianice
Upon the heels of Petraeus' resignation as CIA director comes the news that he will not testify about the Benghazi outrage or any Libyan matters.
Why should he testify?
Congress is full of greedy, self-interested traitors
who hate America and want $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
and freedom from ObamaCARE .... for themselves.
They support illegal immigrants killing Americans
and they support CHEATING in national elections.
Does MoveOn.org still have the original “General Betray-us” ad that we can borrow?
I’m inclined to your view.
I doubt Congress will want to Subpoena him.
That might spoil the Whitewash that is coming.
You are right! He can and most likely will be compelled to testify via subpoena at some point.
this is good news.. now that he is no longer attached to the Obama administration he can spill the truth beans
He is going to sing like a bird and drop the bomb on Obama.
I doubt the GOP has the guts. After all Bonehead wants to move own to
working out a grand bargain with Obama.
Great plan ...
Sure but that can be challenged in court. To invoke executive privilege draws a lot of attention to the issue. Eric Holder always appeared when he was summoned by the House even though he perjured himself every time. Obama used executive privilege to withhold documents that might relate to political maneuvering (cover up) in Fast and Furious.
Does not COngress have the power of subponea?
And to think these jokers took an oath to uphold the Constitution!
Who’s next ... ?
They are killing the investigation, one resignation at a time!
Cant they subpoena him?
That’s my question too.
“Petreaus, who probably knows the full story, is returning to civilian life, but what leverage does Obama have on him?”
Probably the “or else” part you mentioned.
Of course they have the power. The question is do they want to use it.
Bonehead and Cantor want to move on to working out a grand bargain
with Obama. So what if a few Americans got murdered.
If it was Petraeus that leaked the emails, why didn’t he leak enough to really hang Obama before the election? I would think the CIA has the ultimate access to everything. If this had been a Republican president, we would have seen the drone video weeks ago.
This is unbelievable.
