Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the White House used David Petraeuss affair to get the CIA director to give testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that was in line with the administrations position on the matter.
Appearing on Fox News's Special Report, Krauthammer said, "The sword was lowered on Election Day" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Thank you Captain Obvious.
Freepers were on this a week ago sour kraut .
Please God let him be able to prove this
I think Blackmail would finally be an impeachable offense
I am praying you are right!! IMPEACHABLE FINALLY!!!
I don’t think he would say that without some type of proof.
Gee. Ya THINK? *Rolleyes*
Cross Border Authority
There’s no more to the massacre than that.
All he needs to do is TESTIFY!!!!!
Will he do it.....remains to be seen.
I’m afraid for our Republic. Something in me says he is not.
Raise taxes on the “rich”. Everything is solved. I heard this on my Obamaphone.
Well that didn’t work so well. Is Patraeus now a man with “nothing left to lose” or do they still have a hold over him?
In order redeem his honor, after 37 years of giving and hearing speeches about “Duty, Honor, Country,” Petreaus might attempt to redeem his honor in front of congress.
He might blow Obama out of the water. Might.
When Clinton was in office it was “just about sex” how come this is a career ender for Patraeus? Hypocrits
He blew up their ammo when he inserted TMI in his letter of resignation. There was absolutely no reason for him to be that graphic otherwise. They likely have no more leverage over him.
This is what I’ve been saying along...Petraeus’ being forced to resign one week after the election and before he was going to testify before Congress about BenghaziGate s highly suspect. You know they are scared of what he knows and were looking for any irt get could find well in advance of the election. They say the investigation by the FBI began in May 2012 when Broadwell sent threatening messages to Kelly. This is complete bullshit. Sources are indicating that they’ve been having affair for as long as 4 years. Something would have come up way before this if that was the case. I say 0 is working Hoover style and is using his G-men to dig up dirt on potential threats in case he needs it in the future. 0 isn’t fooling anyone.
Because Petreus, as smarmy as his personal behavior has been in this situation, did the right thing and resigned. Bill Clinton has no shame, and his constituency thinks he did no wrong.
“He might blow Obama out of the water. Might.”
Or he might take an unscheduled trip to Ft. Marcy Park.
I would not put anything past this regime.
You think the left wing senate would remove a black president on the eve of a left wing "revenge" administration?
Can he prove that?
Not saying it isn’t true...it probably is.
But, can it be proven.
