Mission Improbable: Trey Gowdy gets into Benghazi
Politico ^ | 5/5/14 | JOHN BRESNAHAN, LAUREN FRENCH and JAKE SHERMAN

Posted on 05/05/2014 11:27:23 AM PDT by DallasBiff

Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans have decided to create a select committee to expand their investigation into the Benghazi attacks. Beyond that, nothing is settled. In fact, Republicans may be going on something of a mission improbable to yield new information and turn up new clues in a wide-ranging probe that has already spanned 13 hearings, 25,000 pages of documents and 50 briefings

There are questions about what the select committee will set out to do and what it can actually yield. And the man who will head the committee, South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, will be following in the footsteps of no less than eight congressional committees in the House and Senate that have investigated the September 2012 attacks on a U.S. mission in Libya.

Step one: Delay any investigations, say they are premature and a “political witch-hunt”.

Step two: One investigations finally begin, provide as little information as possible. Delay, deny, obfuscate.

If done properly the two steps above should drag things on for about two years.

Step three: “Dude, that was like two years ago!’

Rinse and repeat

These THREE WRITERS of this one article have a point: Just give it up now, Trey Gowdy. Why bother?

I think Fox News should open a Special Benghazi Bureau and do live broadcasts from it every day.

RAT Media Meme # 1: a mission improbable to yield new information and turn up new clues in a wide-ranging probe that has already spanned 13 hearings, 25,000 pages of documents and 50 briefings

RAT Media Meme # 2: South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, will be following in the footsteps of no less than eight congressional committees in the House and Senate that have investigated the September 2012 attacks on a U.S. mission in Libya.

Yeah, I guess they’re right. There’s no point in investigating this any further.....

The media will be looking at every aspect of Gowdy's life; every case he prosecuted, everything he's written and everyone he's crossed paths with anywhere -- all the things they avoid with Obama. Their objective will be to change the conversation from Benghazi to Gowdy.

I hope Boehner adds Chaffetz and Gohmert to the committee.

You forgot one, which I’m sure we’ll see shortly.

Delay, deny, obfuscate, make counter accusations.

Get a load of this lying propaganda by the 3 Palace Guards!

Congressional Democrats and White House officials say the Republicans are “constantly shifting the goalpost” on Benghazi. According to an administration official, Republicans said Obama didn’t label the Benghazi attack a terrorist attack, which wasn’t entirely accurate. Then Republicans asserted the White House “politicized” CIA talking points, which turned out not to be true either. At that point, some Republicans suggested the White House and Clinton ordered the Pentagon not to try to rescue Stevens and the other Americans trapped in the Benghazi outpost. That claim did not stand up to scrutiny either.

* Obama used the term terrorism the following day but NOT in regard to Benghazi. Even Candy Crowley had to admit later!

* CIA never used Video Protest in response to Benghazi, only White House advisors

* No military response/rescue happened.

Will the Democrats ever want to nominate a presidential candidate who isn’t either black or female? I don’t see how they could ever function again without being able to shout out “racism” or “sexism” at the drop of a hat.

Please Trey Gowdy - Make them tell us who gave the order for our forces to stand down that night.

If a “journalist” takes money from the Democrat party that is trying to cover up crimes against The United States, then that journalist becomes an accessory to those crimes. Witting or unwitting doesn’t matter. It might make a difference in the sentencing. Especially if the journalist provided evidence against the co-conspirators.

According to an Obama administration official, the White House never gave Republicans the emails because Congress never asked for them. A May 2013 subpoena from the Oversight Committee sought any communications between U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice and a specific group of State Department aides. Rice did a round of interviews on the Sept. 16 Sunday shows following the Benghazi attacks, blaming the incident on reaction to an American-made anti-Muslim video, although Obama himself had already said it was a terrorist attack.

The Oversight subpoena never mentioned senior White House officials like Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser for strategic communications or other senior White House aides who helped develop talking points for her Sept. 16 TV appearances. Administration officials did not believe they were legally required to release the Rhodes email to Oversight.

Gowdy is first rate, but the GOP as a whole is woefully out of their league here politically.

It's a damn shame too.
