Was Obama Hiring Of Criminal Lawyer Due To Benghazi E-mails?
American Thinker ^

Posted on 05/04/2014 10:15:50 PM PDT by Sam Troy

Did President Obama lawyer up in anticipation of Judicial Watch’s release of the Benghazi e-mails?

On April 29, Judicial Watch announced that it had obtained the “smoking gun” e-mail on April 18, 2014 – days before Obama announced that Neil Eggleston would replace Kathryn Ruemmler as White House counsel to the president.

~

Politico reported on the switch and made mention of Eggleston’s role in the Whitewater investigation during Clinton’s first term, as well as his ties to Obama’s former White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. The high-powered lawyer helped Emanuel avoid jail time in the pay-to-play schemes involving former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

Snip~

Is the Obama administration simply gearing up for battle due to myriad unconstitutional and possibly illegal activities? Eggleston will certainly have his hands full after the last six years. Or is the announcement of Eggleston’s new position directly related to the Benghazi e-mails and the murder of four Americans?

The timeline is interesting on this one. Judicial Watch has fought for two years to get documents from the State Departments specifically pertaining to the talking points used by former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on talk shows. A federal judge finally ordered their release two weeks ago. Three days later, Obama hired Eggleston. Eight days later, JW went public with the e-mails.

Quite possibly once Howdy starts pulling a thread, the whole enchilada begins to unravel. Kind of what happened to the other Milhouse - the one who wasn’t a pencil necked, mom jeans wearing little fag

With the behavior of this administration, this is pretty much an admission of guilt.

Ooooh, a little harsh there but I fail to disagree, not in any degree, but at least in one degree, as far as that degree is a part of the Fahrenheit degree, or maybe even in Celsius degrees, in which case I fail to disagree in any degree whatsoever.

there is a huge difference between this and Watergate, more generally, any dem vs gop. when there is a gop scandal, some people turn states evidence, when there is a dem scandal, they know people will turn up dead and you never see a dem turncoat. if anyone can name one, i’ll stand corrected.

You are known by the company that you keep nearby
When you hire a known criminal lawyer, it means that you have ( Criminal ) concerns.

When it walks like a duck..
Quacks like a duck ..
and is busy preeening itself to remian floating ..
and lays eggs ..
You have a duck, and are getting ready to protect yourself from a "plucking " !!
