NICE TRY Barry: 'Timley' Petraeus Resignation Won't Keep Him Off the Witness Stand, You Snake
Reaganite Republican ^ | 10 November 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 11/10/2012 4:10:23 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

Trey Gowdy: 'He will be subpoenaed'


Attemptingbuck-up-the-troops post in the wake of unexpected and disheartening GOP defeat, I prioritized battle cries of 'Impeach Obama over Benghazigate' and 'NO tax increases'. This seemed to be what a lot of other people were thinking too- alas, most doubted the resolve and determination of what 'leadership' we still retain in this party- and wondered
-as we always do- if anybody's even listening.


Yet lo-and-behold, here we are three days later and BOTH seem on the path to realization: to the surprise and delight of conservatives, Boehner and McConnell stepped-right-up to the mike yesterday and proclaimed 'NO new taxes'- *music* to
my ears and yours.


But the ignorance and stupidity of so many Americans that gave Obama a pass on Benghazi (+ all the rest of this lawless crew's shenanigans) has surely emboldened an already power-mad president, and with no more elections they have zero problem with screwing-over or completely destroying anybody that might nudge them in the direction of justice or any form of accountability.

Now that others who know-way-too-much (Hillary/Benghazi, Holder/Fast-n-Furious) look to be about to fall victim to Obama's post-election purge, Hero of Baghdad General David Petraeus has been hustled out the door (on a Friday, typical) just a week before he was slated to appear before Congress and testify re. the Benghazigate cover-up. The agency then immediately announced that acting CIA director Mike Morrell will take his place at the congressional hearings- isn't that special.

But that fishy-smelling dog won't hunt for South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy: he says that if the Obama regime thinks they can keep Petraeus from answering long, long overdue questions re. Benghazi under oath, they've got another thing coming:
_______________________________________________________________________

I hope we don't have to subpoena a 4-star Gen, a former CIA Director; I hope he'll come voluntarily. If not, he will be subpoenaed-Trey Gowdy (R- SC)

_______________________________________________________________________


Unsettlingly, it seems socialism and central planning are not the only elements of the Soviet system Bronco Bamma finds admirable: much as the KGB spied on their own citizens (and the Kremlin kept dirt on entire politburo/Communist Party, so as to be utilized in their political [or paranoia-driven] dismissal and/or arrest), Obama used the FBI to spy on Petraeus' personal life... does that bother anybody?

Yep, President Obama's got plenty of reason to fear David Petraeus: a principled, competent, and eminently practical man, he's likely to horror-of-horrors speak the truth about Benghazi. Perhaps Obama should have kept him at arm's length, where he had at least a modicum of control, but I do hope and pray the good general hangs Obama out to dry: just last week Petraeus appeared to be bus-chucking Obama over the Benghazi debacle/cover-up, so why would he show any more loyalty now? He's loyal to the country, law, and Constitution, not some metro-sexual Castro wannabe personally. But would Obama use Executive Privilege or attempt to classify the testimony in order to avoid impeachment?



As dismayed as patriots were at the election result and Obama's ceaseless luck-of-the-devil, there's still reason to believe justice will eventually catch up with this moral black hole, if for no other reason than the incredibly lengthy record of bad behavior. 

Be glad knowing that if the Republicans had not retained the House, this guy wouldn't even have to think about Benghazi again -the media can't forget it fast enough. BUT Republicans are still here, while our ossified leadership seem to be waking-up and have already deduced that Romney defeat =
TEA Party ascendance. It appears that they are attempting to dance to our tune- encouraging to see, that.


With the election behind us, there's still a scandal brewing that rivals Watergate: recall that Nixon also won re-election in '72, only to be brought down by his own tangled web of lies soon afterwards. 

A forced resignation within 12 months would be superb, and it shouldn't take long after that before Biden's locked-away in the rubber room, safely away from the levers of power. President Boehner could then make Rubio or Michelle Bachmann VP and Paul Ryan Speaker of the House... right?

If any in the Grand Old Party care to rise to the occasion on Benghazigate, there's history to be made, boys.. call it
'David vs. Goliath'

Impeach?

The US Congress supports anyone against
the US Constitution, from al Qaeda in the Pentagon,
State Dept, to the White House.

THEY DO NOT CARE and every single American now knows it.

He will be debriefed upon leaving the CIA...it is not an easy matter to discuss, even under House inquiry, classified information. He is essentially held mute. It wouldn’t surprise me that his clearance will be suspended also.

The only way I see around it is that he receives approval from the Executive Branch to discuss anything classified.

We all know the chances of that happening.

My take on Petraeus:
Petraeus knows the treasonous truths on Benghazi. Petraeus clearly is highly respected and will be the star witness and everyone knows he logically has to testify at the upcoming House hearings. If he does not, it is proof positive the Republicans are also traitors. Petraeus will tell the truth under oath. Jarrett naturally resorted to blackmailing Petraeus into lying. Jarrett confronts Petraeus with the affair and says she wants cooperation or else - she will destroy him. Normally, Jarrett would not give a damn about an extra-marital affair. Petraeus calls her hand and beats her to the punch. In doing so, he has learned a very hard lesson that inevitably the devil will get his due when you foolishly sign on with him. Now, however the tables are turned and Jarrett is screwed except for one last hand (see below). Petaeus is now free to testify and he will quietly through the backdoor ask the committees to serve him with a subpoena so he has the cover he needs to lay it all out on the table. I sure hope Petaeus knows he has now locked horns with the devil and has hired personal, highly trusted bodyguards and is in a safe house. Jarrett’s final hand is to see that Petraeus meets a premature demise and the story will be that he became extremely despondent and committed suicide.

He can testify in classified House and Senate inquires if he has information that is important to government oversight.

It’s a joke to believe this Congress will do anything to to impeach Obama. Some people are having wet dreams over Patreaous and his new status as another victim of Obama tossed under the bus. Obama has just enough black to make him impervious to any attack. The minute it starts getting hot for him the Race card will be tossed into the pile and it’s all over.

This has to be a very trying time for Gen. Petraeus, a proud and dedicated officer, who is obviously being thrown under the bus to cover Benghazi.One would hope and pray the Gen. doesn’t resort to something drastic.

I also guarantee you he has a dossier on the incident which is safely in the hands of the GOP or in someone unknown who will deliver it. Valerie and Obozo are like two turds in a toilet and Petraeus is going to flush.

Here’s hoping Obama gets totally exposed on his incompetence, his unlawful acts, his anti-Americanism, and all other offenses that the House sends articles of impeachment to Dirty Harry Reid about every other month. The political optics would be great that the Dems get slaughtered in the mid-term elections. ;-)

It is theoretically possible, though very doubtful IMO, that the House could impeach Obama.

There is not a hope in hell that the Senate would produce even a majority for conviction, much less 2/3.

“Jarrett naturally resorted to blackmailing Petraeus into lying.”

This the weak point in your argument. Why worry about telling the truth now, when you already lied on Sep 14th when you told congress it was the video?
Where was his honor then? What can we believe from him now?
I hope you are right, but I have my doubts.

He doesn’t have to reveal anything classified; questions like “Did you receive calls for help that were forwarded to the White House?” and “Were you told to stand down by the WH or State?” are not classified communications.

Very valid points, but I can not help but believe that Petraeus is the one witness who would come clean after pondering all the carnage left behind at Benghazi and the battlefield principle that was destroyed in the process. I believe he is the only one with a conscience in the administration, so they had to destroy him. Yes, he knew better when he lied about the video, but the gravity of this situation may not have sunk in yet. No excuse for lying but he can still redeem himself if he admits he lied and then proceeds to crack this treasonous conspiracy open.

He was probably being blackmailed.
The worst thing they had against him was this.

He threw it out there, and now they have nothing.
Now if they want to shut him up, they have to arrange his suicide... which I would not put past them.

He can now sing with impunity. What are they going to do now, tell the world he had an affair?
He pre-empted them.

“There is not a hope in hell that the Senate would produce even a majority for conviction, much less 2/3.”

I would offer that if any testimony from Petraeus is just so damning that it leaves no shadow of doubt that oblunder lied, covered up, watched Americans die with help available that was stood down and showed complete ineptitude, then it’s likely that there’s some senators especially the 20 up for re-election in 2014 would vote to convict. They won’t want to be tied to this in any way. They’d have the concession that they’d still have Biden (d) as president.

The bottom line is that Benghazi is small potatoes and just a distraction.

Elsewhere the consensus was reached that Patraeus resigned because Obama ordered him either to not give intelligence information to Israel for their attack against Iran; or to tell Israel that the US will give intelligence information to Iran to prevent the Israeli attack.

And Patraeus refused.

Petraeus is an Obama supporter. His wife worked for and supported Liz Warren, Obama’s puppet. Petraeus didn’t resign before the election to avoid harming Obama’s re-election chances.

Now that the election is over and his guy has won, he quickly resigned because the affair that many people were aware of was about to become common knowledge. His abrupt resignation was a “surgical strike” to attempt to minimize the damage to his own reputation, and immunize the administration as much as possible in regard to his Benghazi testimony.

Huh?

Where do you come up with this crappola?

Of course his Security Clearance will be revoked, if it has not already. So what?

EVERYONE who leaves Gov't Service including all Military Personnel automatically have their Security Clearances revoked because why would they need them, as they would no longer have access to classified info.

As a covert Intel Agent while serving in Vietnam, I still will not divulge to anyone some of the secrets I learned and knew then (some 46 years ago) NOT because there is anything preventing me from doing so (legally) simply because I choose not too just in case what I said might somehow impact those who continue to serve in that Organization.

There is NO WAY, Dear Leader (or anyone) can keep P from being subpoenaed or from testifying--not that I don't expect this corrupt Regime to try, maybe by invoking "Executive Privilege", which just won't fly--especially if it is done in Secret Sessions.....and you can take that to the bank.

You do not automatically get your clearance revoked, you get your “access” revoked. Clearances have a lifespan depending on the type. A secret last 10 years. Access is another matter entirely, that is revoked ASAP and has to be reinstated. You can in some circumstances have a clearance revoked, adultery has never been one reason I know of, unless it was part of some other conviction by a court.

He was being blackmailed to play along that it was the video. When blame was coming from the White House that the intelligence community told the men on site to stand down then he stood up and made his carefully worded statement and then leaked the CIA’s timeline of events.

By not falling on the sword for Obama, Petraeus made his own decision to publicly resign.

Benghazigate is going to explode big time...

He may surprise me and do the right thing and fall on his sword for the American People instead of for Zero, but I really doubt it.

November 8, 2012 (Thursday) *Stars and Stripes* article by Matt Millham:

Lt. Gen. Mark P. Hertling, the now-former commander of U.S. Army Europe, quietly departed Germany last week and retired days later at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. “Lt. Gen. Hertling’s decision to retire was a matter of personal choice... "The command didn’t alert the press to, nor issue a news release on its website, where Hertling’s official biography now says he “was” USAREUR commander from March 25, 2011, through Sunday.

Hertling leaves USAREUR without fanfare, retires

Not quite true. I know someone who worked for the NSA and still retains his clearance. There are retirees, for example, that retain their clearances. As for the CIA, they do anything they want because they don't operate the same; they handle their own clearances apart from the normal DoD security operation. When you are debriefed, you acknowledge that you still are not to relate anything classified that you know. It's the 5/500000 penalty.

That all depends on what is discovered in the House. The fact that the Senate is under Dem control, will actually help the impeachment process get started. Dems will know that the only way Obama could be removed would be if half the Dem senators wanted him removed. And they might depending on what is discovered in the House. The next US Senate elections have more Dems then Pubs up for reelection.
