Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Already in Control of Democratic Members of Benghazi Panel

This is exactly the type of corruption and pandering that caused this administration’s many scandals. The Democratic Party suffers from a complete lack of basic accountability. Its first instinct is to lie and cover up.
Hillary Clintons world was so worried about a Republican investigation of the Benghazi attacks, they sent a message to House Democrats: We need backup.
So Clinton emissaries launched a back channel campaign, contacting several House Democratic lawmakers and aides to say theyd prefer Democrats participate, according to sources familiar with the conversations.
Hillary Clinton stacked the first investigation of Benghazi with her people. Now she has managed to do it in Congress.
Republicans are making it clear they plan to use the power of the Benghazi Select Committee to continue to politicize the tragedy that occurred in Benghazi, which is exactly why Democratic participation in the committee is vital, a Democrat close to Clinton world said. Inevitably, witnesses ranging from Secretary Clinton to Secretary [John] Kerry will be subpoenaed to testify, and the Democrats appointed to the committee will help restore a level of sanity to the hearings, which would otherwise exist solely as a political witch hunt.
So we’ve got the Clinton-Dem talking points on the table. They don’t intend to investigate the murder of four Americans in any way. They are there to protect Hillary Clinton and accuse any investigators of being crazies engaged in a witch hunt.
If Clinton testifies, it will almost certainly be one of the blockbuster moments for the committee and an important prelude as she considers a second run for the White House.
She can pound the table some more and shriek, “What difference does it make anyway.”
Pelosi picked Reps. Linda Sanchez and Adam Schiff of California, Adam Smith of Washington state and Tammy Duckworth of Illinois to fill the panel. Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, will serve as ranking member.
Cummings became notorious for his frenzied obstructionism and tantrums. Linda Sanchez can blame the Vietnamese. Again.
Tammy Duckworth will be there to provide cover for the anti-military party as a token.
New York Rep. Eliot Engel said Democrats shouldnt allow the investigation to be made about one person.
I think the American public feels that Hillary Clinton did an outstanding job as secretary of state and if Republicans are using Benghazi to blemish her record, I dont think it will stick, Engel said.
That must be why no one can seem to name anything Clinton did in office… except Benghazi.
Isn’t she unemployed?
She knows that he knows. And he knows that she knows that he knows.
Heck, anyone who pretends Hillary doesn’t have control of all these guys is living in fantasy world.
But I did read today, a credible journalist too, that H was going to have to answer questions of competing candidates and journalists.
But I do think Trey will ask. She might not answer.
It’ll be ugly but like a train wreck.
Isn’t she about due for another stroke?
the fix is in. just like the 9-11 commission. can you say ‘white wash”
please prove me wrong
That’s the ticket. She’ll get a note from her doctor excusing her from testifying.
She is formerly concussed.
She is formerly concussed.
Isn't Cummings a target? Oh no that's another scandal...
Time for RUSH to resurrect the "My mind is Jello" medley again.
she’ll make sure there’s no paper trail
I am shocked.
Follow the money.
Seymour Hersh, famed author, already detailed how Obama is using US military and money to support Muslim Brotherhood.
Russian officials have clearly stated that Afghan heroin, under the protection of US military has killed over 500,000 people.
Soros is clearly tied to Muslim Brotherhood one example is this article from 2011.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a heroin cartel.
Sinaloa gang members have stated in court documents that they had agreements with Federal agents to bring drugs into the US, specifically into Chicago.
We are a NARCO NATION, thousands have been killed in Syria alone. Benghazi was about arming Syrian rebels. Rebels with allegiance to Al Qaeda, also a,drug cartel. Syria is a fight over cartel territory, just like Ukraine is a key drug route into EU, where Soros positioned his corrupt politicos, and Putin wasn’t on board. Ukraine is known as being a money laundering hub as well.
I doubt the Dems are the only ones who threw Americans to the wolves for money, and certainly other Western leaders are complicit. The question is who? For all we know the entire Benghazi trial is another charade. They have to know what is going on.
I have watched Rep. Gowdy and been impressed by his attitude toward “business as usual.” He is a Southern boy who respects his elders, but I doubt if he will take much crap from Cummings. I just can’t see him getting rolled by the ‘Rats. I have always thought it would not be pleasant to have him as the prosecutor in your trial.
The Democrats are very worried about this, or they would have never bothered to show up. We can expect a summer of temper tantrums from the likes of Cummings and his ilk.
Gowdy is far too disciplined and intelligent to get sidetracked by the juvenile antics of such a sycophantic minority.
A private citizen interfering with a Congressional Investigation should be very interesting
I believe Trey Gowdy will prove you wrong.
i hope he does, but how many times have we been told that dem heads will roll, only to find ourselves bamboozled? especially when it comes to the clintons?
Call me a skeptic, but I see this as just smoke and mirrors. Odds are nothing will come out of the committee because of sabotage and obstruction. If, anything did come out of committee it would be blocked by the ruling uni-party in the Senate. If it somehow makes it past the Senate the Kenyan will pardon them...
I’d like to associate myself with your assessment of Trey Gowdy. I see him as a formidable foe in the Democrats eyes. They are justifiably frightened.
