Did President Obama lawyer up in anticipation of Judicial Watchs 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 Egglestons role in the Whitewater investigation during Clintons first term, as well as his ties to Obamas 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.

When will Ubama fire Trey Gowdy?
It ain’t because of a disappointing harvest in Michelle’s veggie garden.
Yep. We only get to see maybe 10% of this right now. When Gowdy gets going, we’ll see more. And the Democrats won’t like it one bit.
In the meantime the Dems version of Kabuki Theater is so funny.
Yep, really is hilarious (and soo predictable). What's funnier is the reporting by the lamestream taking the Dem talking points seriously ( and tacitly agreeing )
I don't think he can... he isn't a special prosecutor working under the supervision of the Executive branch. But O and his minions can continue to obfuscate, delay, and redact while having the MSM chant "witchhunt, witchhunt, nothing there."
This is the first step. The second thing to watch for is the rats to start abandoning ship.
I know Ubama can't fire Gowdy. But I bet he tries.
Go get em Trey!
Joe DeGenova: I’m delighted that Democrats don’t want to participate
CNS News ^ | 5-5-14 | Susan Jones
CNSNews.com) - Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova says he’ll be happy if Democrats decide not to appoint members to the special select committee on Benghazi that Republicans plan to establish.
“I’m delighted the Democrats don’t want to participate. All they would do is obstruct,” diGenova told WMAL talk radio in Washington, D.C. Monday morning.
“The president is going to pay a price ultimately,” he added. “It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow, but his performance and Leon Panetta’s was shameful that night.”
DiGenova says on the night of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, President Obama did nothing to rescue Americans on the ground and under fire.
“He was doing other things. And this needs to be answered,” diGenova said. “Where was the president — what did he do, hour by hour?”
DiGenova said Obama’s actions will not withstand scrutiny, and that’s why the White House “lied later and that’s why they tried to cover up.”
Likewise, diGenova said former Defense Secretary Panetta also has a lot of explaining to do: “He has never been forced to honestly say what he discussed with the president, why he didn’t dispatch troops, why people were forced to shut up after all this happened.”
DiGenvoa also criticized Panetta’s performance that night:
“He should have told the president, Mr. President, you’ve got to send people in — even if we don’t know we can win. We’ve got to send them.
“You never leave people on the battlefield. That’s what they did. That’s what they’re afraid of...and if Democrats attempt to delegitimize this, it will never work.”
DiGenova says Benghazi has “now reached the level of recognition in the public psyche that this can no longer be ignored. In addition, it is now clear that crimes were committed in the coverup; Congress was denied documents purposely, documents were changed that were sent to Capitol Hill.
“This is obstruction of justice, obstruction of a congressional investigation. And even though there may be no criminal prosecution out of it...because of the totally politicized Justice Department, there is going to be a select committee...and if Democrats don’t want to participate, I say fantastic.”
DiGenova predicted a “wag the dog” scenario:
“I am predicting right now that the president is now, because of the problem associated with Benghazi, is actually going to order the special forces and the CIA to go into Libya and get the people who committed the crime, something he has been unwilling to do up until now.”
I know the reference. And, I bet he’d love to fire Gowdy. They’ll go to character assassination instead.
Also, the line has popped up that there’s been four bipartisan investigations that have found no wrong-doing. Riiiight. Four congressional hearing investigations with redacted documents, five minute question sessions, and heavy Dem grandstanding. Bipartisan, indeed.
Could this possibly be it?
More funny associates of 0bungles.
Obama Donor Heads Organization that Freed Terrorist Accused of Plotting Attack in Benghazi (President Emeritus of the CCR, Michael Ratner)
In a word. . .Yes!
What difference does it make?
I didn’t know that trolling was allowed before 6PM so that the kiddies would be away from their computers doing their homework.
Question is will HC change her tune now? Her remark might come back to haunt her.
Have you seen Hillary lately? Watched the 5 this evening and they had video of Hillary. She looks like she has aged 20 years since leaving the SoS position. She may not even make it to 2016 with her health.
