Dick Cheney’s Advice To GOP’ers Investigating Benghazi: ‘Hillary Should Be Subpoenaed If Necessary’
Medaite.com ^ | 5/10/13 AST

Posted on 05/10/2013 10:45:58 AM PDT by drewh

Former Vice President Dick Cheney told reporters on Thursday the investigation into the White House’s handling of the attack on an American consulate in Benghazi has only just begun.

He said that House Republican should continue their pursuit of answers relating to the administration’s decision making in the wake of that attack. “I think Hillary [Clinton] should be subpoenaed if necessary,” said Cheney.

Cheney told Fox News reporters that he thinks the former Secretary of State may have to be called to testify again before congressional investigators. Cheney made this comment to reporters while appearing on Capitol Hill for a meeting with House Republicans.

I’m beginning to think Hillary is toast.

She might survive the scandal but her Presidency hopes are looking dimmer. Intentionally misleading Congress and the nation is not going to play well in a campaign.

Question:

Since Hillary is no longer SOS, can Zero claim “executive privilege” (as he did in Fast & Furious) if she gets subpena’d?

Cheney is one of the only GOP’ers willing to say what everyone else is thinking...

I think we can expect to see Hillary come down with a series of “health problems” which will prevent her from testifying before congress.

What an excellent, excellent question!

I’m sure getting the answer will keep our entire Federal court system tied-up for the next thirteen years.

According to Mark Levin when she testified the first time they did not put her under oath. And if they don’t, what difference does it make? To coin a phrase.

The easy answer is yes as it pertains to her time in that capacity.

Furthermore, she was not under oath a second time either. First by ‘Rats, second time by Issa’s committee.

Neah.

The ‘Pubbies don’t have guts to pursue Benghazi to its logical end, much less tar Hillary! with her crimes in the 2016 election. And the American sheeple will have forgotten Benghazi by then.

The only way this hurts Hillary! is, if by some weird chance, the ‘Pubbies DO pursue this all the way and try to indict her. Don’t think that that will happen, though.

Well, sure he can. It's The King's Privilege. It's good to be the King.

And anyone who objects is a some sort of bitter, hypocritical, racist, woman-hater. Or so the MSM will proclaim.

Since the lib media isn't really giving in-depth information I feel the average Dem won't be swayed. As far as they would be concerned, all this is just being made up by evil Republicans.

Too early. It would proove the media story line that it’s all about getting Hillary. Build our case first, then call her. And hope they do a better job than last time. Don’t be put off by histrionics.

I think the news media is starting to recognize they can’t save Hillary, Obama, and also save themselves.

I think they believe they can save themselves and Obama if they sacrifice Hillary to the republicans and keep her out of the WH.

Take out Hillary and it will all die down.

She had a head injury and can’t remember anything from her initial investment which made 900% in 24 hours thru Benghazi Praise the lord she is recovering, can remember new things, and can run for president.

Treason? Malfeasance? High crimes and misdemeanors?

There is a lot there. She failed in her duty to the personnel at Benghazi. She was probably assisting the transfer of arms to the MB insurgents in Syria. But, IIRC, she wasn’t under oath, so it it can’t be perjury.

Of course, if Holder didn’t go down, why should she?

It’s necessary. Issue the subpoena. Put her under oath.

Or more precisely, if they save Obama over this screw-up, they know he is capable of FAR, FAR BIGGER ONES in the not-too-distant future.

Yea your right, but I think they believe Obama’s screw ups will mainly be because of his incompetence and easier to cover up than covering up Hillary’s screw ups coming from her quest for power.

Hillary’s screw ups in her quest for power generally end up with dead people all over the place.

Yes because congress was too chicken to investigate. But Americans died at Benghazi and the investigation was on.

They need to drag Candy Crowley’s fat ass up to Capitol Hill and find out what she knows about Benghazi.

Carney started by trying to throw CIA (Petraus) under the bus.

Save themselves from what?

They have never been held accountable and, if so, by whom?

Have you read any of the comments from any of the ABC or CBS listeners/readers?

Most of the comments I’ve read, their readers/listeners aren’t too happy with how they have been trying covering up for Hillary and Obama.

These aren’t what the left would call rabid right wingers, these are people that go to ABC and CBS for their news.

They’re loosing their audience and it’s only going to get worse.
