Discrepancies between Benghazi emails released to Congress, watchdog group
Fox News ^ | 5 May 2014 | Catherine Herridge

Posted on 05/05/2014 6:31:05 PM PDT by mandaladon

EXCLUSIVE: Documents reviewed by Fox News show there are differences between Benghazi emails released through the federal courts to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and emails released to the House oversight committee as part of its investigation into the attacks.

The discrepancies are fueling allegations the administration is holding back documents to Congress.

"The key question is whether Congress now has all the documents," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a member of the oversight committee, said. As for differences between the two sets of documents, Chaffetz alleged: "They are playing games. The classification and redactions are different. Why should Judicial Watch get more than Congress after issuing a subpoena?"

The emails published by Judicial Watch last week, which showed additional White House involvement in shaping the public explanation of what happened, helped trigger the announcement Friday by House Speaker John Boehner of a select committee to investigate.

Two of the emails, from Sept. 14, 2012, appear to be part of the deliberations in advance of then-U.N. ambassador Susan Rice's Sunday show appearances were she linked an anti-Islam video to the Benghazi attacks. The emails released to Judicial Watch include the names of those who participated in the email chain.

The same emails provided to the House committee do not include names.

Both are marked to "DECLASSIFY" on Sept. 13, 2037 -- 25 years after the terrorist attack which killed four Americans."...............It keeps getting more interesting

It's not all that secret. Back in 2003, the Chinese and Russians were discussing contingency plans for the collapse of the Nork regime, and they even discussed what would be needed to topple the Kim family if they got too big for their britches.

What the Norks have been doing is bad for business.

It’s the old “Shell Game” updated. Give some here, some there, and let them try to find the rest, somewhere (near a shredder perhaps).

If Diogenes came to Wash. DC and looked in the Obama regime for an honest person, he would have committed suicide immediately. No use suffering any more than he had too.

Earlier today I saw a post that claimed the Democrats were accusing the Republicans of doctoring the documents! Yes !! They actually were blaming the Benghazi email discrepancies on the GOP.

I believe the discrepancy is easily explained. The same document was released at two different times to two different organizations by two different people. The second guy screwed up. If the same person who made the release to congress had also made the release to Judicial Watch, they would have looked the same. The second guy didn’t know what should be redacted, from a “stonewall” position.

And even more strange was that the article was dated May 16th of 2013. If you clicked the link to Huffington it was clearly dated with that date.

“Obstruction of justice”. Isn’t that what caused Nixon’s downfall? It wasn’t the Watergate break-in that got him in trouble. As I recall, it was the cover-up that brought about his demise and imprisonment for some of his staff.

[“Obstruction of justice”. Isn’t that what caused Nixon’s downfall?]

And it almost toppled the Clinton Administration. Where there is Obstruction of Justice you will usually find Perjury.
