Rand Paul: Hillary Clinton 'Needs to Be Deposed Again' to Explain Benghazi

Rand Paul: Hillary Clinton 'Needs to Be Deposed Again' to Explain Benghazi

Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Rand Paul, who famously tangled with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a January Senate hearing on the terror attack in Benghazi, says it's time to bring her back before Congress to answer more questions about the terror attack.

"See, the thing is, I think she needs to be deposed again," Paul told Fox News on Tuesday.

His comments came one day after former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova told a Washington radio station that the real scandal in Benghazi is the theft of 400 surface-to-air missiles by some "very ugly people." The Obama administration fears those missiles will be used to shoot down an airplane or blow up one of our embassies, he said.

"I'm concerned about surface-to-air missiles, obviously, being in the hands of Islamic radicals," Paul said, "but I'm also concerned -- was Hillary Clinton telling the truth, or was she simply saying, 'Well, maybe it's classified, maybe I won't tell the truth.'

"I don't think our public officials should come before committee and not tell the truth," Paul said.

‘Deposing’ Hillary won’t get much information, especially after her brain clot that probably oh-so-unfortunately “wiped out” all relevant memories .... might want to try waterboarding.

What the heck is wrong with this country? Somebody who should be in prison is now being said to have “a lock” on the presidency in 2016. Weird.

Sorry congress, Hilary is on one of her listening tours and cannot be held accountable for petty things like a diplomats death or arming al Qaeda with US weapons.

I think she was at the Constitution Center in Philadelphia today.

To let this Alinsky worshiping communist scum on hallowed ground is a travesty.

The GOP are to afraid of her to put her under oath. They might call her in
again to “interview” her, but they are too afraid of her to put her under oath.

Someone who, because of his connections to terrorists would never be allowed near the White House, currently lives there.

With her history if there was an opposition party she wouldn’t even be considered for president. All the republicans have to do is everytime they’re asked a question by a reporter say “Hillary Clinton and obama need to come clean on Benghazi.” Eventually the media will have to start covering it.

I am moving out of the country if Hillary is anointed president. That will be the final nail in the coffin of what once was a free country.

>>>Paul said he has asked Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to have Clinton brought back to answer more questions, “and I hope Chairman Issa will bring her back.

“She needs to testify under oath, did she know about this? And did it have anything to do with the misdirection campaign (blaming the Benghazi attack on an obscure video), and did she have anything to do with not allowing the Marines to go aid their wounded brothers over there in Benghazi?”

Asked if Clinton was telling the truth, Paul said he doesn’t know.

But he said he does believe that Clinton’s “decision-making process with regard to Benghazi” should preclude her from becoming president.<<<

"For six months leading up the attacks, they asked and they asked and they pleaded for more security, and she says, 'Oh, I never read the cables.' The problem with that is -- is that that's her job." (My emphasis)

No, that was not her job. Her job as Secretary of State, with the privilege of the "diplomatic pouch", was as bag lady for the The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation money laundering operation.............

If Issa was on OUR SIDE Paul wouldn’t have to pressure him to bring her back under oath.

Rand Paul told her point blank that he would have held her as derelict in her duty. I don’t think he is going to treat her kindly.

Where would you go? If there were a good alternative, I’d be packing my bags right now.

Without a better alternative, I choose to stay and fight. I fight at the voting booth. I fight the liberals with words and don’t let them get away with their lies. I fight the liberal businesses by not patronizing them (no Hollywood movies, etc.).

Australia has a much more pro-capitalism government.
This community organizer from Chicago who never ran a hot dog stand at profit is a wealth re-distributor which is opposite of creating prosperity. With 48 million on food stamps and millions more every year, this ship can not be turned around. People have discovered free stuff and they like it. It will take 40-50 years before a change of direction is possible. This has happened in every country.

Even communist China now has over one million millionaires. Russia has low level flat income tax. But it took 50 years of trickle up poverty before they made a change. I do not have 50 years to wait. I am already on Medicare.

What purpose will it serve? Even the village idiot knows that she will purjer herself each time she gives an answer. In addition, the same idiot knows full well nothing will happen to her. Again, I ask, what purpose will it serve?

As far as I’m concerned, having her testify under oath serves the purpose of compelling truthful testimony. Committing perjury subjects her to at least the possibility of criminal prosecution in a court of law. That is undoubtedly the reason Rand Paul wants wants to depose her, otherwise why would he bother?

I wouldn’t be so sure of that, remember what happened to her husband.

In any event, if she isn’t under oath, the temperature in hell won’t matter.
