This is stuff that might have made Nixon blush.
But it's just the Chicago way, via Moscow.
It’s the Chicago way...
“General Patreus: Has the Administration’s knowledge of your affair in any way colored or limited your testimony before this committee at any time?”
I believe that the WH is working on destroying Petraeus’ credibility as a witness against them.
from the comment section..........makes you wonder what they had on Justice Roberts.
Krauthammer sums it up best. This has been my feeling about this from the start. Most of the media is deploying their standard smokescreen - focus on the more salacious aspects of the situation; the affair.
Hoover kept private files on many public figures. The information was held in escrow until the appropriate time...
Interestingly, if true, then the Administration and Patreus both hold each others’ future in each others’ hands.
Patreus can repay them by replaying the blackmail he experienced........or see his reputation trashed by a blackmailing Chicago Mob.
It’s definitely getting more interesting!
Petraeues needs to do one last thing in duty to his country, TELL THE TRUTH about everything he knows about Benghazi. No matter the cost.
0bama and hillary have nothing but scorn for the truth. Expect nothing to come out of the hearings. All will lie to protect the current occupant of the oval office.
Remember hillary and her “I’m sorry I don’t recall”
Patreaus should be the first of many to go to prison.
And then the Obama media can’t understand why the intelligent 50% of the country has absolutely no respect for this thug from Chicago.
Even with this out in the open, I still think it’s impossible to predict what Petraeus will say under oath. He *could* tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may, and that would be the right and honest thing to do, what we would expect from a person of his stature and training.
But we know he’s already willfully violated the UCMJ and that he seems very comfortable rubbing elbows with the elitists of the Ruling Class. Now that his military/CIA career has gone down the $#itter (”Plan A”), he may well be willing to perjure himself in return for a comfortable retirement gig and some creature comforts (although not I suspect those provided by the buxom Ms. Broadwall) for the rest of his life.
Knowing how elitists are, I know which way I’d vote, but I’d be thrilled to be proven wrong.
The ironic thing is that no matter what he blackmailed Petraeus with; it came out enyway.
Please, folks. The very LAST thing I want is a Biden Presidency. :)
**If** he were subject to blackmail from “our” (USA) side (by testifying as he did about Benghazi), Then the FBI is correct in pursuing his infidelity as a grave national security concern (since he is susceptible to pressure over the transgression).
If this were the case, then Pres. Obama would have had to be informed. (Since the transgression is provably capable of influencing his actions.)
So, if the WH pressured him in his testimony, then we have a grave national security lapse that the WH had to know about (and did, if the premise still holds).
Peanuts and beer (or smoked salmon and champagne)!
The Chicago Way is too right!
In 2008, two Hillary super-delegates are found dead. She withdraws her name from nomination.
In 2012, Roberts chucks out all rational and Constitutional precedent and declares Obamacare legal.
Now, Petraeus has been given his script for whatever committee he must appear before.
All it would take is a plain brown envelope with an 8x10 of family members, to deliver the message: “We know where you live, get it?”
That’s the Chicago Way,
In the wild and wacky world of Marxist,socialist,liberal,progressive politics everybody seeks to get ‘something’ on everybody else. Its the way they do business. Its also known by another name, “The Chicago Way”.
