I liked Mr. Gowdy’s visit on Greta the other night. So far he was the only one who’s explicitly stated that Petraeus will testify, voluntarily or not. Many other Republicans who have spoken on the matter use phrases like “He really needs to,” or “We would like him to,” leading me to think they’re eventually going to fold as usual.
Here’s what really bothers me, though, and I’m hoping somebody can reassure me. I don’t think I can think of a flimsier excuse for Petraeus to resign (as Peter King said on Fox this morning, looking back through our history as a nation were Eisenhower, FDR or MacArthur forced to resign for extramarital affairs?), yet that’s exactly what this administration expects us to believe.
As thoroughly corrupt and unfailingly evil as Hillary and He Who Shall Not Be Named and their ilk are, they’re not stupid. It makes me think they know some technicality we don’t that will preclude Petraeus from testifying, and it’s precisely how these disgusting lawyer types weasel out of consequences every time.
