Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Already in Control of Democratic Members of Benghazi Panel
Posted on 05/22/2014 11:28:25 AM PDT by smoothsailing
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.
Pure Kabuki Theater.
I sure hope Rep. Gowdy has no nonsense hearings where he keeps the Rats on a short leash. If I were him, I would flat out tell the Rats that if they weren’t on the committee to get answers, to leave and not come back.
LOL (to the Trey Goudy, “Bring it on,” pic)
"Follow the money" is putting Swiss banks on expensive notice, most recently Credit Suisse for fines of $2.3 billion, that certain accounts are subject to US government scrutiny and (unspoken) certain are not. And no one in the media dares to connect the dots.
I’m anxious to see this committee get underway. In my view Trey Gowdy is going to be Cummings, Pelosi, Hillary and the Rats’ worst nightmare.
Gowdy’s big problem will be the Dem leaks. Most of the committee’s work will involve depositions, behind closed doors..and the Dems on the committee will leak it all to their 5th column media sources to shape the story..
Impossible!! How can it BE???? Our darling fearless leader Boner would NEVER allow THAT to happen!!!!!
No doubt you’re right....Gowdy is a brilliant guy when it come to the law, the leakers better make sure their tracks are covered.
The puppet masters have the regime and media firmly in control.
Expect Benghazi to die a silent death.
Hillary and Obama could carve up a crying, screaming baby on the White House lawn and the MSM would not report; the powers that be would do nothing; the Supreme court itself would bow down in obsequy.
Full cover-up mode in place, captain
If the repubs vote 7-5 to get the findings to the floor of the house, that’s enough to get articles of impeachment on the docket.
I remember the two CNN anchors crying when Clinton was impeached and how the dems all came out to the rose garden behind Clinton while he made one of his “I’m not a crook or pervert” speeches.
This will be the same only a hundred times louder. Yhe media will be in full defensive spasm.
The republicans should deal with the facts and go full speed ahead.
The more the dems scream and huff and puff the more we know the hearings are on track.
Trey Gowdy has more brain cells in his pinky finger than the witch has gray matter, if any.
The Special Ops community will not likely let it die. They’re stated so on Fox.
Every Dem will leak...you can’t stop it..I do think that Gowdy should hold a weekly press conference...to lay out everything
I wish they’d start the public hearings, but apparently Gowdy is taking a slow, meticulous approach, much like a determined prosecutor preparing for court.
I suspect he’ll be conducting interviews and taking depositions away from public view and media scrutiny.
When he’s good and ready he’ll announce a public hearing, probably with short notice.
The uncertainty of what he is up to will drive the rats nuts. LOL!!!
I can’t wait to see if Trey Gowdy limits questions to 30 or 60 seconds and pulls the political rug out from under the dems before they start their showboating and pontificating.
You can expect that all you want, and any other defeatist BS you can come up with. The Special Ops guys have a different plan.
That’s just pathetic, but not surprising.
It’s not going to work.
Now you’re talking! :)
You’re probably right and I dearly hope the uncertainty drives them nuts, it’s exactly what they deserve.
I’d like to be a fly on the wall at meetings between Elijah and Nancy of him keeping her up to date. I wonder if she’ll take the motherly consoling route to keep him calmed down. LOL!
She is the anti-Christ.
She has gotten away with murder, securities fraud, obstruction of justice, accesory to rape, theft, cocaine dealing, pathological lying, assassination, incompetence, public drunkenness, election fraud... her fingerprints have been found on stolen documents that were evidence in capital crimes...
You will never put her behind bars where she belongs.
She will eat your children and grandchildren and never be punished.
The press will praise her for it.
She has gotten away with EVERYTHING to date.
I'm not a defeatist, I'm a realist and I don't have a wooden stake. Demonstrate to me one time since 1974 when that evil shrew has been punished for a blatant crime, misdemeanor, failure, faux pas, etc.
Here is Hillary Clinton on YouTube committing a felony that is punishable by 5 years in Federal Prison.
Start there, then come back and tell me I'm defeatist.
Good idea, Republicans can ask true or false, yes or no questions. The witness is allowed 5 seconds to reply. If there is no reply in the time allowed, the asker assigns an answer of his or her choosing.
Democrats can submit multiple choice questions to Elijah Cummings for approval and then only Cummings can ask those questions to the witness and he’s not allowed to read them. The 5 second rule for answering applies. If there is no reply in the time allowed, Trey Gowdy assigns an answer of his choosing.
No doubt about it.
Maybe you should change your screen name to “Fear Hillary”.
You seem to believe in that more than “Fear The People”.
I think their participation highlights a difference between the way Bill handles a scandal and the way Barack does. Bill likes to get out in front of it and talk his way out of it. Barack prefers to fold his arms and dare anyone to "make me."
Bill is a con artist. Barack is a belligerent man-child
