Hillary to Issa: You should reserve judgment about Benghazi until November
Hotair ^

Via Powerline, I think this is her version of a compromise. Deep down, she’d prefer that he held off until November 2016.

Clinton said that the State Department’s Accountability Review Board will begin work this week and the letter revealed the names of all five board members. In addition to former Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Pickering, who will lead the board, the other members will be former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen (ret.), Catherine Bertini, Hugh Turner, and Richard Shinnick.

Clinton asked Issa to withhold any final conclusions about the Benghazi attack until the review board finishes its work and reports to Congress, which could come as early as November or as late as early next year. She pledged to work with Issa’s committee and asked him to submit any requests for information or witnesses at hearings to the State Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs.

How’s the Accountability Review Board going to get to the bottom of what happened when the FBI still can’t get access to the crime scene? The news tonight from Reuters is that the State Department’s still negotiating with the Libyan government to get people in there, nearly three weeks after the attack. Even the locals can’t quite believe the foot-dragging:

Issa should put on oven mittens and hit himself in the face ten times.

I think he can agree to that. Would November 3 or 4 be acceptable?

This all stinks of the Clintons from the 90s. Typical phoney FBI investigation just brought in to destroy evidence and what better way to destroy it by never getting to the scene of the crime. Reno and Freeh were always being rolled out during the Clinton 90s. When is Hillary going to call for blowing up an aspirin factory the same way bubba did in the Sudan.

Where the hell is Mubarak’s and Gaddafi’s BILLONS of dollars. Hillary should be search on a regular basis for money running into her own bank accounts.

Seems that the former Ms. Rodham lives in a virtual parallel universe in her own head. Will it take being either crucified or stoned by the very terrorists she is defending to make her see stark reality?

Where is the outrage? Maybe some in the MSM will tire of running cover for the Obama clown parade. Most of them should be carrying toilet paper instead of notebooks and microphones

Heard that the Libyan govt. is holding things up? They can’t go in without permission. Doesn’t matter anyway, now, because the crime scenes been trashed.

Hillary has already announced that she is done as SOS in an Obama second term (& for sure she’ll be “done” if Romney wins). SO ... her goal is to try to get out of this SOS job without having to resign in disgrace which would affect her political future, should she decide she does want to run for President or whatever. She is putting everything off as long as she can ... then voila, she’ll be gone as she previously stated. No harm, no foul, right? /s I don’t care how hard he pushes, I don’t think Issa will get answers before the election.

If she is not in compliant of what Darrell Issa asks for, isn't that considered obstruction ? or holding Congress in contempt ?
Darrell Issa could issue a Contempt of Congress warning to Hillary Clinton if she does not co-operate in this investigation in a timely manner.

In the meantime, Hillary Clinton stonewalls on Issa asking for co-operation in this investigation in the security at the US Embassies.
In the meantime, Nancy Pelosi blames the Republicans for blocking $ 300 million for funding for security in Libya.

The new media needs to do some research and find news articles on proof that this Administration had the necessary funds to provide sufficient funding for beefing up security at those US Embassies.
The Obama Administration from a Washington Post article asked for $ 1.5 Billion in funding to give to the Libyan rebel alliance in Libya back in 2011.

Her boss has already announced his judgment. The Attacks were the result of a porn video.

Darrell Issa should not give them time to shred records and documents that would be required in this investigation.

Like the Holder ‘contempt of Congress’? Obama will again assert Executive Privilege on any info they don’t want out ... another lawsuit will be required & they won’t even have the papers to the courthouse before she’ll have stepped down. I wish there was something Issa could do - personally, I’d like to see immediate waterboarding begin.

Whats to hold back? Hildebeast committed gross incompetence at the least and should already have resigned in disgrace along with Valerie Jarrett and BHO. Why wait to tell the truth?
