John Bolton: Benghazi Panel Needs to Question Hillary Clinton for 'Hours and Hours'
newsmax.com ^ | 5/4/2014 | Todd Beamon

Posted on 05/04/2014 7:16:44 AM PDT by rktman

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton needs to provide "hours and hours" of private depositions if any House select committee is effective in uncovering what happened in the 2012 Benghazi deaths that killed four Americans, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said on Saturday.

"The public hearings that get so much attention are the last things that should happen," Bolton, who served in the George W. Bush White House, told Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News program. "We need former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton giving hours and hours of depositions before they put her back out in public testimony. That's the way to find out what happened.

Republicans war on women. Just trying to vilify an honest hard working woman just like they are trying to do to lois lerner. At least that's how the lsm will portray it. And the American public will still get stonewalled.

Those depositions may be the key but it will be a long time before the desired information “leaks” out to the public at large even after it makes the Headlines” here..

Questioning, or even pillorying Hildebeast as she deserves, will not vilify an honest, hard working woman.

He’s right, of course, but Hillary unleashed on live tv proves - once again - that her reputation as brilliant is just another piece of crap propaganda. She was uncontrolled, stupid and militant in that famous sound bite. So I’m all for her going on tv again.

The media and Jarrett administration are all too happy to withstand questions like, "Who changed the talking points memo?" and "Who pushed the video?" instead of facing questions like:

Why was Ambassador Stevens meeting with a high ranking Turkish official at a Consulate instead of the more heavily defended Embassy?

What was the nature of the meeting?

Who gave the "stand down" order?

What happened to all of the officers that were fired days after the Benghazi incident? Can they not testify?

That’s the problem with having let that witch off with her “What difference” tirade.

Senator should have responded to Hillary:

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is THE TRUTH!”

“And the American people and this Senate deserve and DEMAND THE TRUTH!”

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that this was important enough for Susan Rice, The President, and YOU, TO LIE ABOUT SOME BOGUS VIDEO!”

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that in spite of the fact nobody had any way of knowing how long the attack would last, and yet FORCES PREPARED TO EFFECT A RESCUE WERE ORDERED TO STAND DOWN!”

“Madame Secretary, because you come before this body, and arrogantly and loudly proclaim that you do not recognize what difference it makes, I DEMAND THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR RESIGNATION, IMMEDIATELY!”

Given how the GOPe has screwed everything else up (Issa a prime example) is there anyone that DOESN’T think this is going to be an unmitigated disaster? I’d bet real money on it.

Why was Hillary's chief of staff the daughter of the leader of the Muslim Sisterhood?

Why was the administration favoring the Muslim Brotherhood and AQ related groups in Egypt, Lybia and Syria?

I think, if I recall correctly, the folks involved were “asked” to sign disclosure letters keeping them from speaking out. At the risk of their jobs, pensions, futures. Only implied of course. Never stated. Can a panel override these disclosure requirements?

1. They were discussing middle east initiatives.
2. Ask the CIA
3. I don’t feel well. Might be a stroke.

If I were the chairman, I’d issue her a letter telling her that she is a prime suspect conspirator in a criminal coverup and that I intend to compel her to appear before the committee under threat of contempt and imprisonment charges. I would also advise her that she had damn well better bring legal counsel with her. I’d further advise her that her right to 5th Amendment protection is in force, but that she will not be allowed to give an opening statement, but rather, will be there to answer questions, and only that.

Well if they question her for hours and hours in the first hour they are going to find out what I’ve been saying for years: That she’s a dangerously psychotic woman who should be nowhere near any position of power, not even in charge of a lemonade stand. But once again they will let this vile witch slip through their fingers. I would bet my life if she had a psych evaluation by a shrink she would without question be classified as psychotic. I don’t even have to guess she probably had orgasms watching Benghazi unfold, it turned her on not to do anything about it because that’s the kind of headcase she is. And they want to run this lunatic for POTUS?

Questions for Hildabeast.

1. You’ve claimed to be the victim of your husband’s infidelities. How many times have you had sexual relations with a man or woman other than Bill Clinton while married to him?

2. Who is Chelsea’s biological father?

3. Please explain your cattle futures expertise and why you haven’t continued to invest based upon it?

4. Can you name three accomplishments in the past 10 years for which you are directly and primarily responsible?

5. If we grant you immunity, will you provide us with testimony as to what happened at Benghazi, including the whereabouts of Barack Hussein Obama?

6. Do you believe Obama is a Muslim? A Marxist?

7. Is Barack’s marriage to Michelle a sham? If so, please explain why.

8. What role does a “body man” play for the President?

9. Did your 2008 campaign discover any information that revealed Obama was ineligible to serve as President? If so, what?

10. Did Barack Obama or his supporters threaten you in any way during the 2008 campaign?

People sign non disclosure agreements all the time. But all bets are off when they are on the stand and under oath. The choice is to testify or go to jail for contempt.

During that hours and hours of questioning, they will likely find her in content, because inevitably one story she made, would contradict several others she made, thus exposing a few dozen lies.

The “email is titled “Libya update from Beth Jones’, who was Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton at the time. The email documents a conversation between Jones and Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 not long after the attacks, and contradicts the WH and State Dept story that they believed a video led to the attacks.

“When the Libyan Ambassador said his government suspected that former Qaddafi regime elements carried out the attacks, I told him the group that conducted the attacks—Ansar Al Sharia—is affiliated with Islamic extremists,” Jones reports in the email.

There is no uncertainty assigned to the assessment, which does not mention a video or a protest.

Perhaps towels and buckets of water would help her memory...then she would have the experience necessary to condemn water-boarding as vile torture - that would allow her to speak authoritatively on at lest one topic..

You can bet that Obambi will protect Hitlery any way he can because the Klintoos have info that would destroy him and he has been told to “behave with regards to her presidential run or they will out him. That’s the only explanation for the cozy relationship they’ve had since the 2008 campaign. Pretty sure Obhama positioned the Iranian slut as Hil’s deputy to watch her as part of the deal for her to be SoS. The Klintoons would never cozy up to a political rival/enemy.

If Democrats were ever able to see more than just scripted, staged soundbyte versions of Hillary, she would not have enough support to run for office.

In other words, if Hillary’s public image were based on the reality of what she’s really like, she’d have no chance of being elected.
