Issa: "No question" Clinton's circle involved in Benghazi "cover-up"
CBS ^ | May 6, 2013 | Lindsey Boerma

Posted on 05/06/2013 6:34:05 PM PDT by don-o

There's "no question" someone from Hillary Clinton's circle - if not the former secretary of state herself - was involved in the "cover-up" of any missteps by the administration following an attack on a U.S. consulate last Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told CBS News on Monday.

"If Hillary Clinton is not responsible for the before, during and after mistakes... it's somebody close," Issa told CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes on Monday. "There certainly are plenty of people close to the former secretary who knew, and apparently were part of the problem."

Those close to Clinton who may have engaged in "deliberately, premeditated lying to the American people," Issa said, could include Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy or Beth Jones, acting assistant secretary for near eastern affairs at the State Department.

When Issa stops floating trial balloons and starts pulling active duty servicemen and the ‘recently retired’ who are directly connected to these people in for questioning I will think he’s serious.

You’ll know who to look for by which dept fights hardest to stop it.

Did you ever wonder what context Thighness was thinking in with the ‘what difference does it make!?!’ answer?

That.s crazy bait to throw out to her enemies. What did she really mean by it?

Also, it was said on Fox’s ‘Sunday with Chris Wallace’ that one of the Benghazi survivors that is still in the hospital is there under an assumed name on his medical records.. Who in the hell is responsible for THAT? Is this part of the cover-up; Hiding a survivor’s identity so that Congress cannot locate and speak to him? Huh, Hillary?

There are those close to Romney who are going to take the early removal of the Hildabeast as a good reason to run him again.

Time to cut that movement off at the knees.

Don’t wuss out on us, Darryl.
We don’t need grandstanding out there by anyone. We need pointed questions, cutting to the heart of the matter, and exposing the Hilderbeast and Kommisar Bongo. Remember, your words will mean little, so there’s no need to say a lot. The aim is to have these people doing the talking 90% of the time. Your job is to slowly roll the ball of yarn until it unravels, not throw it out of the window in frustration.

We ate out at a local restaurant tonight and we were there for about an hour. There was a widescreen TV directly across from us, with the channel tuned to CNN. Anderson Pooper was on, and later followed by Piers Morgan’s show.

Both shows covered ONE and ONLY ONE STORY...3 missing girls that were discovered alive and well.

Not one mention of Benghazi.

You are absolutely right, but I have seen these jokers blow it too many times. They make a ten minute self serving speech and then spend two minutes asking about trivia. I sure hope they have wised up.

I often ponder if the 21K manpads was an AQ threat to stop air traffic.

Quite a few planes dropping out of the sky. Tinfoil off.

If an economic collapse oddly happens the day after planes fall from the sky. don’t be surprised at the ‘unexpected’ situation.

Tinfoil? Well, would anyone really be shocked?

Yep! Even though her accomplishments as Senator were zilcho, even though she was an unmitigated disaster from hell as SoS (and they know it) they will *still* fanatically push her for POTUS. They do not give a rats ass sh*t about the country. All they care about is pushing commies for office.

And Issa pursued that question when? Believe me. I am as upset as anyone. And I want to know why all these legit questions and issues a bunch of pajamadin can figure out escape the people doing the actual investigation.

Oh I KNOW why. My real question is why no one seems to catch on.

I've got more faith in Trey Gowdy if they give him a chance to work.

And will he be held accountable for his negligence? Will any of them in any meaningful way?

Doubt it. I don’t enjoy this negativity. But I have no reason to expect anything else. They have shown none.

I have to admit, I have high expectations for this investigation.

The bastard has to be taken down, just the evidence that we've heard about is enough.

There's only one man who can stop impeachment and that is Boehner.

If it doesn't happen, than the country is lost and it's the Republicans fault as much as OBozo.

That's how I see it right now.

Impeachment will make Obama into a martyr, just like it did Clinton. The best thing to do is let 0 give himself plenty of rope to hang himself with, without anyone appearing over-eager to help him.

It's like serving revenge nice--and COLD!

Don’t try and pass this off from Clinton, Issa. It is and was Hillary’s responsibility as was Obama acting as Commander in Chief to send help. I hate it when these Congress critters don’t want the people in charge to pay the price.
