Posted on 05/02/2014 7:54:12 AM PDT by bryan999
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is issuing a subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before the committee May 21 about Benghazi, Issa announced Friday.
The move comes in the wake of new, "smoking gun" emails that show top White House officials working to craft a narrative that the attack was the result of a YouTube video and "not a broader failure of policy."
Republicans have expressed outrage that the documents were not provided earlier under subpoenas for them, but instead came out via a Freedom Of Information Request lawsuit by the conservative non-profit group Judicial Watch.
Compliance with a subpoena for documents is not a game. Because your Department is failing to meet its legal obligations, I am issuing a new subpoena to compel you to appear before the Committee to answer questions about your agencys response to the congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack," Issa said in a May 2 letter to Kerry.

why not hillary?
“I don’t recall...”
“What difference does it make?”
Won’t matter. He will LIE just like the rest. If he EVER does testify.
Special Prosecutor. <-—Period!
Put him under oath, give Gowdy the mic and watch Kerry put it ALL on thighness! Then subpoena thighness under oath, and kill the Clintons forever.
Kerry was in charge when documents were subpeonaed.
NO!! We demand a select committee. This is a diversion.Is Boehner a Democrat? Kerry doesn’t know jack!!about 911 and why Stevens was in Benghazi!! Ask the right questions. We are not stupid.
That was my question. Hillary has already been called, I don’t think she would add anything new, other than another “what does it matter moment.”
Let’s hope he gives a self-serving statement before taking the 5th, like Lerner, and waives the right.
Non? Au contraire, Pierre—Democrats are pretty damned stupid. With them it’s always form over substance.
That would be awesome. I just will have to suffer through the monotone, bolt necked, mashed tater faced @sshole’s testimony.
Every time he lies, his face gets longer.
May 21st is 3 weeks away. Why the wait?
Kerry is like a sacrococcygeal fistula!
The lsm’s response..............Yawn. What’s the big deal at this point? That was SOOOOO long ago. No sense digging up dead horses. Or diplomats for that matter. Now, on to Kim’s wedding.
Would someone PLEASE get Issa to get all the Republicans on the committee on the same page. Meet before the Hearing, Get your list of questions compiled BEFORE it. Give all your time after opening statements to Gowdy and then GRILL THAT SON OF A BITCH!
If he so much as stutters, immediately recess for 10 minutes then come back into session and vote to hold the SOB in Contempt.
These weak questions that many members ask only distract, delay and confuse.
Leon Panetta, the SecDef at the time, needs to be called in and questioned under oath.
But Hillary Clinton isn't at the State Dept anymore.
I know, I'm talking about the new lady at the State Dept....
(Hat tip to James Lileks)
Dude....the CIA Director (Brennen the muzzie) needs to answer why 30+ CIA weapons analysts were at Benghazi Annex and why haven’t they testified?
Of course, we know why....gun running to the al-queda terrorists in Syria.
IMO this is good. Hillary lies and screeches her way out of things, but old Lurch honestly thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, so is more readily tripped up and boxed in.
He’s waxing the bottom on his sail boat.
——These weak questions that many members ask only distract, delay and confuse.-——
...if you have not figured it out yet....that’s their job.....
Congressional committes main job is to spread the blame and protect eachother...
The Truth is the last objective they want to find, because heads will have to roll....when they do....
Another government no action - reaction waste.
Just announced there WILL be a special inv, and GOWDY’s chairing it!!!!!11!
“and kill the Clintons forever.”
‘and Politically kill the Clintons forever. Is what you meant.
I knew you did, that was for the NSA CIA FBI etc etc.
Commenting on the scandal of Benghazi and Obamas regime cover-up, Ambassador Bolton said, I love children, I just dont think they should be in charge of foreign policy
When President Bush took charge all the MSM were deriding him as lacking gravité to occupy the Oval Office; but MSM never put in question the record or exposed the dubious past of Barack Obama.
Obama bragged in his auto-biography that he consumed all kinds of drugs enthusiastically. How is it possible that the American people voted twice for somebody whose only qualifications in life was to be a community (communist) agitator? Will MSM give the seal of approval for Al Sharpton, or Rev Wright be the next U.S. president?
An article in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon hit the bulls-eye:
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.
Not buying it. Libs are masters of vote fraud. Yes, some voted for him but look closely at the election results. Also, both McCain and Romney stated they knew of fraud and chose not to pursue it.
Plausible deny ability:
Kerry: I wasn't SoS, I don't know what went on....
Issa: Ok sorry to trouble you we will seek others equally uninvolved and run this bob & Clown show to make it appear we are doing something important.
John Kerry since 1971 - shameless self-promoter.
