    The Republican National Committee published proof Monday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, through her attorney David Kendall, lied to the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi terror attack by stating that Clinton only used one private email account during her tenure as secretary. The RNC based their claim on Clinton emails published Monday by the New York Times that show her sending emails from an address named hrod17@clintonemail.com. Kendall, in a letter dated March 27, 2015 in response to a subpoena for emails from the hrod17 account and another account named hdr22@clintonemail.com, told the committee Clinton only used...

    The House Benghazi Committee is making a personal plea directed at Secretary of State John Kerry amid the State Department’s failure to fulfill longstanding congressional requests for information. In a letter sent this week, Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., asked Kerry for his personal assistance in providing documents described in a November 18, 2014 letter and a March 4, 2015 subpoena to the State Department. The requests cover documents and communications related to ten former senior Sate Department officials.It’s another example of a trend in which federal agencies fail to comply with congressional requests on a timely basis–or at all....

    If Congress really wants to get to the bottom of Hillary Clintons missing Benghazi and pay-to-play emails, it should call her consigliere Cheryl D. Mills to testify under oath, and under the klieg lights. A hearing featuring Clinton will be a wasted show trial with a lot of political grandstanding. But Mills, who served as the former secretary of states chief of staff and counselor, knows where the bodies are buried. After all, Hillary tasked her with identifying and preserving all emails that could potentially be federal records.

    A special House panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, has uncovered tens of thousands of new documents, but is still facing "obstacles" from the Obama administration, an interim report issued Monday said. An "Interim Progress Update" was released Monday revealing the investigation "has uncovered new witnesses, new documents, new facts and will result in the most detailed and complete accounting of what happened in Benghazi." And it reported that the panel in June will interview former Secretary of State Leon Panetta, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey and retired General...

    The Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday defended the pace of his panels year-old investigation into the 2012 terror attack and announced plans to interview three top aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., in a 15-page Interim Progress Update released on the one-year-anniversary of the committees creation, blamed the Obama administration for delays in the panels probe. It is difficult to conduct a fact-centric congressional investigation when the Administration impedes the Committees progress by repeatedly failing to answer the Committees requests or to provide information in a timely...

    The Select Committee on Benghazi released its interim report Friday, and while it documented the progress of the investigation into the terror attack, there apparently remains one problem the White Houses refusal to fully cooperate with the committee. According to Republican South Carolina representative and committee chairman Trey Gowdy, the Obama administration is dragging its feet when it comes to releasing requested documents for the investigation. This Committee has interviewed eyewitnesses never before interviewed, obtained tens-of-thousands of pages of documents never before provided, and reviewed new information central to the investigation such as FBI reports specific to the interrogation...

After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner." Chaffetz also told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News The Real Story Wednesday that the open investigation may have...

    The new House special committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attacks wields broad legal authority to do its job. The panel can access classified documents not available to the press or public and to subpoena witnesseswith consequences for those who refuse to talk. Hans von Spakovsky, a Heritage Foundation legal expert who formerly worked for the Justice Department, says the investigation likely will be the most thorough yet into the murky details surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead. Speaking yesterday at a Heritage event devoted to the topic, von Spakovsky said the...

    Congress is about to commence the Benghazi Oversight Hearings, a step in the right direction for the cause of truth, justice and the American Way. That said, a note of caution is in order, especially for those of us who wish to see this inquiry end in success that is, to fully serve the larger purposes of informing the American People about what happened, because it really does matter. Twenty-one years ago, a 51-day stand-off between a religious cult and federal law enforcement officials ended in the tragic deaths, most by burning and asphyxiation, of 76 adults and...

    Members of the Republican-led Benghazi select committee are getting down to work, with the first order of business a detailed timeline of the attack. But it already is apparent to some committee members that previous investigations, including the State Department review known as the Accountability Review Board, were not as exhaustive as the administration claimed. "If you go look at the other reports that were done, whether it be the Accountability Review Board or the Senate case (last Januarys intelligence committee report), there are places where they have enough details but many, many gaps in the fact pattern," Rep. Mike...

    The American people are supposed to trust Republicans appointed to investigate Benghazi but as it turns out, the Executive Director appointed to the House Select Committee on Benghazi Philip Kiko is a lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, in which his clients include the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the radical environmentalist group the Sierra Club, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), National Council of La Raza the Race (NCLR), and the National Organization for Women (NOW), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (NLDEF) and...

    Either Darrell Issa is so miffed at Republican leaders for yanking the Benghazi investigation out from under him that he's intentionally undermining the new House Select Committee, or he just vindicated those who believe he wasn't up to the task. Either way he just blew a hole in one big piece of the conspiracy theory.

    Hillary Clinton Already in Control of Democratic Members of Benghazi Panel May 22, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield 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 Clinton’s 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 they’d prefer Democrats participate, according to sources familiar...
