Feinstein: Republicans’ Select Committee on Benghazi Is a ‘Lynch Mob’
CNS News ^ | May 19, 2014 | Susan Jones

Posted on 05/19/2014 3:38:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) defended her committee’s oversight of the CIA on Sunday, but at the same time, she called the House select committee on Benghazi a “lynch mob.”

“I think it’s ridiculous,” Feinstein told CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley. “I think it’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob, actually. I think that's what's going on.”

Feinstein says she believes all questions about the Benghazi attack and its aftermath have been answered “to the satisfaction of the Intelligence Committee,” which she chairs.

She also compared the attack on Americans in Benghazi with the Reagan-era attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut:

“If you compare it to Ronald Reagan, who is the big Republican hero, and what happened in Beirut, with three attacks, with 240 servicemen, with seven CIA officers, with one chief of station being tortured to death, and Reagan admitted we weren't ready for it -- well, since then, a lot of … things have been done. There were faults. The intelligence was there. Action should have been taken.”

Later in the interview, Crowley asked Feinstein about her strained relationship with the CIA:

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

“[W]hat I have to do is oversight,” Feinstein said. “I'm not there to be the most popular person in any building. It's to see that my committee is diligent, that we do the work of oversight, that when they're wrong, we do something about it. When there is something going on that shouldn't be, we do something about it.”

What would she call the mob who attacked, tortured and killed our diplomats, whom these politicians enabled to do so?

FU bitch...I hope four people you love die with no investigation as to why and the coroner just says, “at this point what difference does it make”.

“I think it’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob, actually. I think that's what's going on.”

Wow, I actually agree with Feinstein.

"Lynch mob" is a pretty accurate description for the mob that killed Chris Stevens and defiled his corpse.

Maybe she could tell us where the little islamist was and what he was doing while our people were being murdered over there.

He definitely appears to have been AWOL at the critical juncture.

Some president.

If you have no facts to support your argument slander the opposition with incendiary frames in the attempt to convince the audience their opponent is not merely irrelevant but is the actual enemy being sought out to be exposed. Change the priority of the focus on to the opponent needing the immediate discipline not the initial suspect(s).

Why don’t you stop playing politics with the dead, Senator Frankenstien?

Are you hiding something? Is there some reason you don’t why to know why our president let those men die?

What are you hiding?

Obama surrendered at Benghazi. That’s why there was no rescue mission. He had already surrendered. That’s why there’s been no retaliatory military strike in Libya. Obama surrendered. That’s why American weapons, armored vehicles and night vision equipment were “lost” in Libya several months ago. That was part of the Obama surrender agreement. And now, the big chicken won’t own up to it.

They are reaching new heights of shrillness because if it were to get out that the democrat leadership (feinswein, poleizi etc) conspired to put an ineligible candidate in office, they’d all be lined up against a wall.

Yea, it's funny how they forget how Mr. Fitzgerald spent months and months investigating who outta Valerie Plame, double naught spy.
When he knew in the first week of the investigation that it was Richard Armitage.

lynch mob? did they finally agree to report on the events in benghazi on sept 11?

oh... I see. the people trying to determine why our ambassador and servicemen were left to die without any assistance are the ones doing the ‘lynching’

is that because 0bama is at fault? Is she being racist.... again

if they had nothing to hide the whole thing would blow up in the GOPs face.
all they have to do is let the witnesses testify and the GOP would rue the day....

but if they have something to hide they would lawyer up, demagogue the issue and use Clinton’s tactics to try and skate

Wow, you know the Democrats are scared of this investigation when they’re already using incendiary language and throwing out the race card and Trey Gowdy has yet to ask his first question. Let the Democrats squirm. I love watching those people in a state of panic when they realize they’re in for a tough time. Who cares what DiFi or any California liberal says about anything. They’ve done enough damage to their own state and they have absolutely no credibility on any issue.

Feinstein says she believes all questions about the Benghazi attack and its aftermath have been answered “to the satisfaction of the Intelligence Committee,” which she chairs.

If she's a lawyer, she needs to go back to the College or University that conferred her degree and demand her money back.

Maybe all her questions were answered. Did she even ask a question, or did she make a speech during her time on the mike (Gawd, that isn't a pretty picture).

What a loser.

Democrats know all about lynch mobs.

Democrats created lynch mobs and the KKK to intimidate and kill black men.

Oh, so this is the latest 'talking point'? Sen. Feinstein needs to be reminded that the attack on the barracks, unlike Benghazi, didn't play out over 8 hours or so, in which Reagan COULD have done something, but didn't.

It seems Feinstein is suggesting the Benghazi casualties are unimportant, and that her party members, which she seems to be tacitly incriminating, are by default immune.

Candy Crowley, wasn’t she the debate ‘moderator’ who conveniently had the transcript ready for zero in the debate vs Romney and then had to admit the next day that they were lying and zero had never actually called Benghazi a terrorist attack?
