Skip to comments.Clinton confidante at center of Benghazi damage-control tied to probe of suspected diplomat crimes
Posted on 06/14/2013 5:52:46 AM PDT by don-o
A longtime confidante of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton who reportedly played a key role in the State Departments damage-control efforts on the Benghazi attack last year is also named in accusations that department higher-ups quashed investigations into diplomats potential criminal activity.
Cheryl Mills, who served in a dual capacity in recent years as general counsel and chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton as secretary of state, was accused of attempting to stifle congressional access to a diplomat who held a senior post in Libya at the time of the attack.
Now she has become the closest member of Mrs. Clintons inner circle to have her name appear in an internal State Department Office of Inspector General memo at the heart of this weeks scandal.
The memo, believed to have been based on anonymous complaints from rank-and-file agents in the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security that arose during a 2012 inspector generals review of the bureau, has sent shock waves through Foggy Bottom since becoming public Monday.

Here comes another promotion.
Cheryl Mills has been helping Bill and Hill bury embarrassing skeletons since their days together in Arkansas. I’ll bet they have paid her well over the years to keep shoveling their.......waste.
I wonder if the CIA has an enemies list?
Cheryl Mills was also the Bimbo Eruption fixer and enforcer during the Clinton Presidency and the prime architect of the Nuts and Sluts propaganda offensive.
She was also at the focal point of a number of other scandals of that era.
Kind of makes one nostalgic for the old days.
So is this Chicago Thugs taking out Hillary..or CIA making it rough for Obama.
I can’t keep track
This week's scandal. Doesn't that speak volumes about the Obama Administration?
I thought Betsey Wright was to Gov. Clinton.
You could investigate and ask, but since people around DC don't seem to "know" what's going on in their organizations, or "remember", you probably won't find out.
They used to, though. JFK found out.
I saw her on FNC the other day.. she just oozes slime and guilt.
It took a village to manage the scandals back then and both were members of that particular village.
cheryl mills is a soul-less, integrity-absent, morals-challenged, guiltless degenerate...therefore, a perfect clintoon employee. Also, she is the perfect DIMocRAT.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
They are dancing around the real issue, WHERE was Barry and what was he doing after leaving Panetta in the “dark” that afternoon with NOTHING for him to order for the military. He is said to call Killary around 10pm, to screw up the damaging talking point that was presented to poor Rice!!!
She will suddenly show up on the white House staff as a NSC member along with Susan Rice and the recent addition Mueller (sp?).
Per Shannon Bream
Deputy CIA Dir Michael Morell - played key role in crafting #Benghazi talking points - announces retirement effective August 9th
Also from post #40 by kcvl :
The 100 pages of e-mails showed a disagreement between David H. Petraeus, then the director of the C.I.A., and his deputy, Michael J. Morell, over how much to disclose in the talking points, which were used by Susan E. Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, in television appearances days after the attack.
Mr. Morell, administration officials said, deleted a reference in the draft version of the talking points to C.I.A. warnings of extremist threats in Libya, which State Department officials objected to because they feared it would reflect badly on them.
Mr. Morell, officials said, acted on his own and not in response to pressure from the State Department. But when the final draft of the talking points was sent to Mr. Petraeus, he dismissed them, saying Frankly, Id just as soon not use this, adding that the heavily scrubbed account would not satisfy the House Democrat who had requested it.
This is certainly not what Vice Chairman Ruppersberger was hoping to get, Mr. Petraeus wrote, referring to Representative C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which had asked Mr. Petraeus for talking points to use with reporters in discussing the attack on Benghazi.
Looks like the game plan is to protect Hillary’s chances of running in 2016.
