President Barack Obama will be unable to finish his second term due to the Benghazi scandal, media personality and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee expects.
The prediction came Monday during his radio show, "The Mike Huckabee Show."
"I believe that before it's all over, this president will not fill out his full term. I know that puts me on a limb," he said, according to Politico. "But this is not minor. It wasn't minor when Richard Nixon lied to the American people and worked with those in his administration to cover-up what really happened in Watergate. But, I remind you as bad as Watergate was, because it broke the trust between the president and the people, no one died. This is more serious because four Americans did, in fact, die."
This Wednesday, at least three whistle blowers are set to testify before a Republican-led U.S. House committee. They will present evidence that the Obama administration failed to respond quickly to the September 11, 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya that led to the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. They will also present evidence that the administration purposely misled when it blamed the attack on a YouTube video and said it arose out of a spontaneous demonstration.
One of those testifying will be Greg Hicks, who served under Chris Stevens. Hicks was not in Libya during the attack, but was in contact with Stevens as the attack was taking place.
Hicks' "story is totally at variance with what some American officials were saying in public on this broadcast five days after the attack," veteran CBS journalist Bob Schieffer said Sunday on "Face the Nation." "The administration claimed the attack grew out of a spontaneous demonstration provoked by protests in Egypt. Greg Hicks told investigators that was simply not true."
Huckabee said that the Benghazi scandal "goes all the way to the heart of the integrity of the United States government."
"When a president lies to the American people and is part of a cover-up, he cannot continue to govern," Huckabee added. "And as the facts come out, I think we're going to see something startling. And before it's over, I don't think this president will finish his term unless somehow they can delay it in Congress past the next three and a half years."
A third part of the scandal has to do with the denial of additional security by the Obama administration for U.S. officials stationed in Libya. Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed in January that she was unaware that requests, by Stevens and other top officials, were denied. Republican investigators, though, found that Clinton had signed off on a plan to reduce the number of security personnel in Libya. Administration officials counter that many State Department documents bear the secretary's signature, but she does not see all of them.
He is wrong. The media will cover for the Assclown and Hitlery.
I suppose he also believes in space aliens, the Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny as well...
heard this sort of stuff before. won;’t happen.
Nice try Huck.
Dems don’t care. Rinos eill whine for a while. Media will ignore it like a dirty diaper.
Remember that Hillary wanted to break laws to get Nixon. She is protected because conservatives play by the rules.
The whistle-blowers will wind up in worse shape than the Obama administration when this is all said and done.
Not without a Woodward and Bernstein.
Now that Huck said that Obama will be punished, I am now SURE that Obama will get away scott free with it...
“heard this sort of stuff before. wont happen.”
That’s correct, it will not..............all because of skin pigment levels.
Nor without a congress.
Obama's presidency is a lie. He and his administration have been lying since "Day 1". They have no shame, no conscience, and anything ... up to and including dead Americans .... is ok if it furthers their agenda and they achieve their ends. The media is totally corrupted and complicit, so no help there. The crapweasels in Congress have no courage and don't make good on their oaths to uphold the Constitution. Obama will be in the WH until the end of his term.
No doubt about that. The king and his court ain’t goin’ anywhere. After all, what would the world think of us if we actually impeached the first half-rican American prez? I almost feel guilty just thinking about it. Well, maybe not.
Huckabee is a fool. We have him to thank for the Todd Akin disaster.
I would like to think, though, that this could be Hillary’s “Chappaquiddick”.
President BiteMe??? Scarey thought.
The lapdogs have their marching orders..in exchange for some doughnuts.
Nobody has to break any existing code of law here in the United States to get Herself, the Cold and Joyless. It is only necessary to apply existing law, and enforce those laws.
Sadly, there is nobody attending the store that will exert the necessary effort to assure these flagrant violations will be followed up on, much less prosecuted.
There is an old piece of time-tested wisdom, if you are going to take a shot the king, you better not miss. The gun is cocked and aimed, just nobody is willing to pull the trigger.
We have MUCH better ideas--but ideas work on the mind, and emotions work on the heart.
So--reach both! Get the parents of the two dead CIA heroes in front of the Committee hearings and let them ask Clinton and Obama why they their sons were the only ones who had the guts to DO SOMETHING to stop the TERRORISTS from killing the other people in the CIA annex, and why their sons were cold-heartedly left to die and become sacrifices on the altar of a Presidential campaign!
Boy,and I thought I was CYNICAL!!Don’t Give Up The Ship!!!!
