Unfortunately a special prosecutor needs Eric Holder to do it.

What a bunch of dumb assholes.

During Bush v Gore I stood in front of LA’s Federal Building with a sign to traffic which said, “DUTY HONOR COUNTRY”.

Some woman drove by and hollered, “Who’s paying you!”

Paying me? I wondered. The sign speaks for itself.

Every one of these ‘phony’ scandals needs a whistleblower. A John Dean if you will. Is there anyone in this Admin that has any conscience left? Leon Panetta, would you like to clear your conscience and sleep better at night? That would blow open the Benghazi investigation, at least.

“I called for this to be done a long time ago.”

The House leaders show weakness, once again, when it takes them so long.

He will get right on that, when he finishes investigating himself.
