Posted on 05/15/2013 7:07:26 PM PDT by Justaham
Breitbart News has obtained an exclusive video of Attorney General Eric Holder flatly rejecting the idea of appointing a special counsel to investigate Benghazi.
Filmed on May 15 and provided to Breitbart News by Special Operations Speaks, the video shows Holder emerge from his car and walk towards the Rayburn House Office Building for hearings on the IRS scandal. Holder is clearly asked, "Mr. Holder, will you appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Benghazi?"
In equally clear tones, Holder answers, "No," and disappears into the building.

This will make Congress go for impeachment...
I for one am very surprised. /S
because he can...
Chicago style corruption — at the highest levels of government.
If he doesn’t want to do his job, he needs to resign and give it to somebody who does. I’m sick of all of the corruption going on during his “watch”. He’s a disgrace to every Attorney General this country has ever had.
Why should he?
He supports ANY al Qaeda over any American.
That includes the murdered, raped, Ambassador
that they shamelessly used
.... and discarded like a rag.
Obama and Holder belong behind bars.
Wake up America, thugs are trying to steal your country.
The punk puke thug dog needs to be brought down. Holder too.
Congress doesn’t need the approval of the Attorney General to get a Special Counsel to Investigate the Crime of the Obama Administration.
They can appoint one.Just like they did for the Nixon Tapes.
It should make them move in that direction.
They could be looking at a year of evidence gathering and then a rude awakening after the mid-terms.
But DoJ sill responsible for investigating IRS targeting special groups.
Holder’s job has always been to block for Obama. The real question is “Who is the coach for the Obama team?” And it isn’t Obama.
Obama needs to rein his boy in.
I thought Nixon finally relented and approved a Special Counsel. (Before he fired, then hired, then fired his AG’s!!) I was but a wee youngin’ then, so I could be remembering wrong.
(The World is going to the dogs.) An event better than what we have now.
To me it was a dumb question to ask.
Whoever asked it knew the answer before it was asked.
Holder is not going to investigate his butt buddy Obama nor Hillary concussion Clinton.
So what were they covering up in Benghazi? Had to be more than just covering up complete and total incompetence on the part of the Secretary of State. It just makes no sense to take away security in a wholly inadequate location/building unless you meant for it to be attacked.
I want that SOB out of there one way Corruption is one thing but he is so arrogant and blatant about it.
We are in the middle of a Constitutional crises.

Hell!I’m not that young either and at times I know my memory fly’s right out the window.Who knows?You may be right.That’s something I’ll have to research.
Well, DUH! The very last thing they want is a a person they can’t control in charge of anything, especially something that dould send someone to jail.
Why? What crimes were committed, that we know of for certain? I am being serious.
This should not be a surprise to anyone, Holder was appointed to be and still is Obummer’s lapdog.
They're really setting themselves up.
The time delay and corrupt information suggests a conspiracy...an unprecedented coverup of a magnitude so great, that even the Dems should want his head.
No, I prefer to investigate myself.
Can’t the congressional committee that’s investigating appoint one? Just don’t appoint Fitzgerald..!
And your guns, money, healthcare, etc,etc,etc,
Disgraceful as it was, no crimes in Benghazi. President controls foreign policy and military. Many presidents have sacrificed American lives in the interest of foreign policy.
Maybe there was a crime in the coverup, but lying isn’t one. And good luck getting Boehner to allow prosecution.
our friends the Saudis are pulling one of the strings, and I'll bet another goes to the Kremlin. But a puppet needs more than two strings, so who knows who the rest are. Soros? The Muslim Brotherhood?
Who is the coach for the Obama team?
My guess is Valerie Jarrett.
VJ couldn’t have dreamed all this stuff on her own could she? The missile shield, the Saudi terrorist that was allowed to leave last month, the MB infiltration all implies external influence.
True, but Valerie tells Obama whent to jump and how high. She is probably the one in contact with the foreign entities while the boy king plays golf.
Gee, here's a surprise we weren't expecting . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . much.
True dat. I read she has quite the SS contingent. More than other advisor ever..
That is the Moral, Legal and Logical action to take.
I guess the pos didnt “recuse” himself on his one.
It was Patreaus who protested the revisions to the Benghazi talking points. Is that why his affair was revealed?
I don’t think they can. The law was changed in 1999 so that only the Attorney General can appoint a special counsel/investigator.
I believe Congress can appoint a select committee to investigate but the investigation is limited to 90 days. And if I’m not mistaken the end result is that they can recommend that the AG appoint a special counsel...
This is why the Senate confirmation of somebody who hates America is downright dangerous to the country and must NOT be done. Once the guy is in as AG, only impeachment can take him out, and then there’s STILL no AG to appoint special counsel. The AG is a placeholder to keep anybody else from being able to investigate the most serious crimes in the country.
I believe the criteria for confirming an AG should be that they have a solid lifelong history of non-partisan investigation/prosecution. Anybody else in that position is way, way too dangerous for this country to tolerate.
The Obama regime has lied about why they denied security before this attack, why they refused standard protocols during this attack, and why they lied about what really happened after the attack. Those lies are smokescreens to keep from having to say the truth. IOW, the truth is worse than whatever has been allowed to come out thus far.
If Obama is arming terrorists against us (as, for instance, the 20,000+ Manpads that Ty Woods was trying to locate - enough to take down a US 747 every day for the next 54 years!), that would rise to the level of treason.
If they planned on the Al Qaeda-affiliated Ansar al-Islam attacking and capturing Chris Stevens and left him unprotected, leading to his death - that is manslaughter at the very least.
When you look at the way these people desecrated the members of SEAL Team 6 (after setting them up to be slaughtered and then conducting a whitewash “investigation”) - as if it was arranged by our own military for the terrorists to get revenge on those who had allegedly killed Bin Laden - you see a pattern that’s mighty ugly.
And speaking of ugly, it’s also ugly that Michelle Obama visited in the hospital a Saudi who had been tackled at the Boston marathon finish line, whom she knew to be Hamza, the son of Bin Laden. The supposed “first lady” yukking it up with the guy who planned the Boston marathon bombing to avenge the death of his father Osama Bin Laden. The guy’s smiling face was plastered in front of the Muslim world as it was reported that Michelle had visited him personally. He didn’t even have to work to get Michelle to put out for him; she came to him in full view of the Muslim world. And afterwards, CIA and/or FBI whistleblowers risked 20 years in prison to give the evidence of what had happened to 10 members of Congress and to Glenn Beck who then gave the documentation to all the media companies. And the media companies watched Michelle Obama put out for Bin Laden’s son in full view of everybody and did nothing about it.
So that’s 2 instances where it really looks like Valerie Jarrett’s Iranian and terrorist “friends” were able to get “payback” for the killing of Bin Laden, with a little help from Valerie Jarrett’s puppet regime.
I hope Valerie Jarrett learns the hard way what she gloated over shortly before the stolen 2012 election: “Payback’s a b!tch.”
Question: Does the DOJ need to be involved in appointing a Special Counsel? Is this some the House can do on their own?
can’t say I blame him
remember Fitzgerald or Walsh
or Jaworski even
they all have bitten the hand that fed them
The irony about this is that while our privacy is being invaded by the government, and the IRS is demanding intrusive information from private citizens, there are layers and layers of secrets held by the Obama administration. We don't know where much of the money came from that financed his campaigns. We've never seen his college transcripts. A US military physician went to jail because this administration refused to provide a verifiable paper notarized copy of his Hawaii birth certificate. And, the influence and connections to shadowy figures like Soros remain obscure.
Obammy used the fbi to gather dirt on every member of congress and the senate.
You think these punks will do anything?
Not gonna happen.
They’ve all been neutered.
