Benghazi cover-up is starting to unravel
American Thinker ^ | May 4, 2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 05/04/2014 9:46:11 PM PDT by george76

There is a lot more to come on the Benghazi cover-up, and it could well lead to criminal charges for withholding subpoenaed evidence. Trey Gowdy, an experienced prosecutor who will head the House Select Committee, has gone on the record (on Greta van Susteren’s FNC program of the same name) as having more evidence of a cover-up.

...

The person who should worry most is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

For example, until now we have seen zero documentation to explain how Clinton out of the blue concocted the statement she issued on the evening of the attacks, which first raised the notion that the attacks came “as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”

In all the material released by the administration to date, there are no notes, e-mails or drafts of Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2012 statement similar to the back-and forth e-mail chain released last year showing how the CIA talking points evolved during three days of inter-agency discussion.

And yet surely such documents exist. We know from the public record that Clinton was getting real-time information on the attacks.

Watch for if Hillary Clinton is subpoenaed to testify in front of Congress. If that happens, it could turn really ugly and could effectively end her chances at the Presidency in 2016.

I’ll know that things are starting to unravel when the MSM starts to distance themselves from The Obama administration.

The question is, will the Republicans actually do something now? Given their record since taking over the House, I’d say, no they won’t.

They will do all they can to cover their tracks....especially concerning what Chris Stevens real mission was in Bengazi.

But I just get the sense she isn’t going to run.

The cover up may unravel, but the story will not have a happy ending unless the guilty end up in orange jumpsuits.

Hillary will have another mysterious brain bleed incident and cry, “I’m too sick to testify” and the RINOs will just roll over. Even so, both she and “The One” should be frog marched to the jail over this and other crimes as well.

I'm remembering that song Rush used to play when Mrs. Clinton gave her Grand Jury testimony in the various Clinton scandals, "Try To Remember."

Now, here she goes again. I wonder if she'll give another "Pretty in Pink" interview, looking demure.

Where did I disparage Mr. Gowdy?

The ones who have “thrown in the towel” are the Republicans, who have followed their spineless leaders like Boehner and have bent over and grabbed their ankles for their Democrat masters.

These “investigations” have been nothing more than circuses designed to impress conservatives. They are not supposed to produce results. If you really expect anything worthwhile to come from these hearings and what not, then you are a fool

That’s what I’ve been saying. This is all smoke and mirrors. The real question is what are they REALLY covering up? I believe it was gun running to Syrian muslim brotherhood. I believe it was our on government that started the attack.

Oh I think she’s still enjoying the limelight, and control of when and if she wants to do so,.... but I cannot see her running. The election process itself is brutal for those even in good health, she’s not healthy enough now to do so and she knows it.

The Clinton Machine will always be a force for raising money, and she’ll continue with the “illusion” she’s running just to keep the cash flow going wherever the machine wants it to go...and to whomever.

she will never be the dem nominee, Obama was but not cause he was black ( ish ) tho that helped ...’specially since he did not speak that negro accent as was said by dems...

Obama was picked cause he wasn’t Hillary.....let that sink in just a second.......

Hillary is loathed by the media, military, and world leaders who are scared poopless with her havin presidential power

this is a woman who would personally perform a Chelsea abortion if she knew it would result in her getting elected

the real story yet written is how all that power left NY for Chicago

I think it was on “Cashin In”; Juan Williams said this whole cover up investigation is because Hillary will run in 2016. (of course he was blaming republicans) Someone replied that was a good point, that Hillary probably had to cover it up because she will run in 2016. A shot of Juan’s expression and on to commercial break. LOL

Oh absolutely...and Stevens was the point man. The administration always paints this rosy picture of him that’s far from the truth. After Libya was ripped apart Stevens started shipping weapons illegally to Syria, The Islamists loved him for that.....in order to oust Assad..... another one of those regime changes this administration is all about.

I’ll know it will really be unraveling when the MSM begins distancing itself from hillary.

I think Obama and Hillary will have to form a circular firing squad to survive this. (They have plenty to use against each other, by now.)

Either he left her basically alone, free to form foreign policy herself, because of his sincere lack of interest in it, (beyond colluding nicely with the Muslim Brotherhood), or else he orchestrated everything and she was complicit in the light footprint/normalization/aka, “smart power” crap, the term she was the first to coin.

In any case she should have resisted by resigning. Now she has no hope of looking principled should she try to blame Obama.

This is about a failure of policy, not the diversionary video lie, that worries the administration. Ben Rhodes exposed in the email what their fear is. The video was a rabbit trail.

Surely Gowdy gets this point, but the buzz is still on the video, so I guess you pull one thread at a time, huh.?

“But I just get the sense she isn’t going to run.”

The prospect of going to jail is probably the only thing that will keep Hillary from ruining. Go Trey Gowdy!!! This will make Watergate look like a Sunday School Picnic comparatively speaking.

That will never happen, the MSM is too invested in radical leftist ideology.

In spite of their attempts to spin it otherwise, the leftist narrative may yet unravel. If Trey Gowdy conducts these hearings as effectively as he has done things in the past, this might be fun to watch...........

The target should be both because both are guilty of letting the four Americans die. Both are treasonous immoral people that America would be better off without, IMO.

You can bet when all is said and done State and the Shiite House colluded in the cover-up. It was not only just one of them that agreed to run with the video story.

The question is, who gets “Akancided” first? The remaining one will be able to walk behind the smoke and mirrors.

Hey, you cannot disparge anyone for being a skeptical of the GOP or anyone in it. Their track record thus for has not been that great.

Where is Eric the Black Holder? He is still walking free.

How long has this Bengahzi been going on? Almost 2 years and just now, right before an election Bonehead does something. It makes you wonder if the GOP really wants to get to the bottom of this for justice for the four dead Americans or just to get votes. Do they want to expose the gun running that was taking place on an epic scale because they are waist deep in it?

So, before running a fellow FRiend down read the tea leaves and push back that good bottle of Irish Whiskey.....pass it my way....
