WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) The State Department said Monday that Secretary of State John Kerry would not appear before the House Oversight Committee on May 21 to talk about Benghazi as demanded in a subpoena from the panels chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Kerry planned to travel to Mexico at that time and officials would discuss alternative options with the committee.

The State Dept does not operate under US Law.
It is directed by the Moslem brotherhood, al Qaeda,
Clinton, Huma, Obama, and Kerry; therefore in the
absence of Fatwa from overseas, they will NOT respond
to the useless, EXEMPT, docile, abdicated, Congress.
Isn’t this what Federal Marshals are for?
" Testify? Me? No way. We got orders to save Hillary's ***....or else.
Here’s a thought, maybe they could hold Kerry in contempt of Congress? That worked out so well on Holder.
So basically “eat my shorts” is their answer.
If they don’t impeach Obama there isn’t much else that can be done except hold hearsings. I guess its good PR for the GOP but won’t accomplish much.
There is no Legislative Branch anymore.
Arrest him then and defund the State Department until it demonstrates an attitude adjustment.
All criminals run to the border!
"I'll testify as long as I can wear my Captain America tee shirt."
If the Republicans were serious (HA HA HA) that would send the House Sergeant at Arms to arrest Kerry and hold him indefinitely until he testifies.
Liberals remind me of the Germans in WWII.
Blissfully unaware and refusing to investigate that the smoke surrounding them and ashes gently falling into their children’s hair and alighting daintily on their tongues actually was people.
“Dude, that’s like so yesterday!!!”
We are 2 years away from this
Minions are not as good at lying as the A Team is. Build up the evidence then bring in the top guns and hammer them with the testimony.
Not until November of this year, and in 2016.
Nixon's shenanigans resulted in an electoral blowout.
In the 1974 mid-terms after Watergate, the Republicans lost 49 House seats -- retaining less than 1/3 -- and 4 Senate seats (to 61D-38R-1I). No real change in 1976, (except for Jimmy Carter, and the Democrats already had working majorities).
Then the house should cut off funds to the State Department (and any other department that is dragging their feet) until such time as they decide to cooperate.
So says Spokeswoman harpie Harf. There is something really vile about her, Oh that’s right she is a CommuRat whom on a daily basis goes about defending the indefensible.
And extensive depositions before the hearings. I trust Trey Gowdy.
Kerry wasn’t head of the watch when the State Department and White House let our people be raped, mutilated, burned and mortared
Hillary was- and where exactly was she? Traveling with Huma?
Kerry is being called to explain why the committee received a redacted version of the email that was obtained (not redacted) by Judicial Watch.
....at the National Press Club on April 22, retired Admiral James Ace Lyons stated openly what many have been talking about privatelythat the transformation of U.S. policy from opposing to supporting al Qaeda can only be understood in terms of Muslim Brotherhood penetration into every national security agency of this government, and their carte blanche entry into the [Obama] White House
...The 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans might never have happened if the U.S. government hadnt facilitated a flow of $500 million worth of weapons into the hands of al-Qaeda-linked rebels during Libyas 2011 revolution, according to interim findings released this week by the Citizens Commission on Benghazi.
The deeper you get, the dirtier it gets, said retired Navy Adm. Chuck Kubic, who appeared with commission members late Tuesday for a press conference at the National Press Club
The Clown Prince communists are soooooooo arrogant.
Given that there are two different versions of the emails-one sent to congress the other to Judicial Watch. I suspect Judicial Watch could petition the court to Depose Kerry to explain that.
That would get his knickers in a knot.
The most powerful tool the Congress has is the purse, and they are too afraid to use it.
It's no wonder the administrative branch runs roughshod over them.
Great point! Larry Klayman, are you on line?
Issa to Kerry....why the long face?
Dude? why the long face?
“A better tactic is to go from the bottom up first.”
The benefit of having an ex-prosecutor as Chair is that he knows how to roll witnesses. A whiff of jail time will get the attention of each “Dude”.
A scene in “Band of Brothers” had a very good depiction of this. After liberating a camp, the soldiers dragged the nearby townspeople at gunpoint to bury the dead. It seemed harsh to have all these elderly folks digging (all the young men were dead or still in the Wermacht somewhere), but people needed to be shaken from their complacency.
This is why I feel that anyone in the US thinks that the alphabet channels are news need to be slapped into reality, pronto.
Zactly. As in that movie where the Nazi Wife is seen in the pit picking up bodies of Jews, that is the MSM.
You could put NBC,CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR all in a room and show them the drone video from Benghazi or weapons being smuggled to Syria or Egypt, unedited emails showing the conspiracy and they would still look in disbelief.
