Skip to comments.In Misstep, Obama Discusses Sealed Indictment on Benghazi
Posted on 08/10/2013 9:22:39 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
President Barack Obama was a lawyer before he became a politician, but on Friday he broke one of the most basic legal rules: He publicly discussed a sealed indictment.
Speaking at a White House press conference about government surveillance, terrorism, and other topics, the president was asked about his past statements that the people who attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year would be brought to justice.
We have informed, I think, the public that theres a sealed indictment. Its sealed for a reason. But we are intent on capturing those who carried out this attack, and were going to stay on it until we get them, Mr. Obama said.
While the president of the United States can declassify top secret intelligence information on his own say-so, disclosing secret grand jury material is a different matter. Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure clearly states:
no person may disclose the indictments existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.

Sh'yeah, THAT's the ticket...
The man is a lawyer like the granddaughter I mention in my tag is a Supreme Court justice.
Can we impeach him now for treason and prosecute him for releasing classified information?
And this dirtbag wants to prosecute Snowden an start a Cold War with Russia?
Louis XIV supposedly said, "L'etat, c'est moi." (I am the state.)
Obama's motto could be La loi, c'est moi.
“President Obama is above the law.”
If the president does it it’s not illegal. It’s good to be king.
The man is a man like my niece is my uncle.
Has OBUMER really studied Law or is it one of his many lies.
KILL ALL THE LAWYERS.
The first name on any indictment should be his.
President Pee Wee lost his bike again.
Spilling classified information, is he?
Well, maybe he can get sanctuary in Russia.
Anybody believe anything this fraud has to say. He was an affirmative action lawyer that represented phony community action scam cases. He knows jack about the real world.
I don’t think he got his hahvahd law degree “the old fashioned way.”
“Has OBUMER really studied Law or is it one of his many lies?”
He may have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.
It continues to be smoke and mirrors, 24/7-365. It is what we have learned to expect: All Lies, All of the Time!
He watched an actor play one on TV.
Nothing is going to happen to him...not one damn thing! And Obama knows nothing will happen.
Sorry, but just like Benghazi, IRS and other scandals, nothing is going to happen to Obama here. The Republican’s quake in fear at thought of even challenging this faggot we call president to account for any of his scandals!
We must always remember - Obama is an “Affirmative Action Lawyer.” They must not be confused with real Lawyers, who normally are expected to have a good GPA and high scores on the LSAT. Obama, of course, was exempt from all of that nonsense. BTW, can someone remind me whether Obama can still practice law in Illinois?
I hate to bring out this old horse, but...”What difference does it make”.
There are no boundaries on this BEAST.

I don’t see the problem, because he is lying when he says there’s an indictment, sealed or otherwise. I could tell because his lips were moving when he said it.
Nope. And neither can the Wookie.
Obama Never Attended Columbia University Says His Graduating Class
| 06-07-2013 | Wayne Allyn Root / FR Posted by Kevin in California
I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama.
As usual- he wasnt there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.
"So I asked every classmate I met at our 30th reunion, many of them Political Science majors, if they ever met, or saw, or heard of Obama. The answer was a resounding NO from every one of them.
I asked if they found this strange, or worried how this was possible? They all answered YES. I asked if they thought it was possible to be a Political Science major and never meet a fellow major in our small classes? They all gave me a very strange look and answered NO.
So I asked, How could this be possible? Can you explain this? No one had an answer."
“President Barack Obama was a lawyer before he became a politician”
Is that true? Did the bumbler ever pass a bar exam? Did he ever actually “practice” law anywhere?
"Le tout, c'est moi" would also work for him.
Yes, he was "of counsel" in the big "redlining" bank shakedown in New York in the 1990's. I think that's how he made ends meet, before he met Shirley Sherrod and went into bigtime fraud on the Government.
He was as good a lawyer as he is a politician
...the Obama Department of Justice took the extraordinary step — in violation of their own regulations — to orally move without explanation to dismiss an indictment against a fugitive terrorist.
