House panel invites Clinton to testify at Libya hearing

The House Foreign Affairs Committee has scheduled an open hearing for next Thursday on the Libya terror attack and has invited Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify, Fox News has learned.

The committee joins two others planning to hold hearings, albeit closed ones, that day.

**SNIP**

Obama has vowed that his administration will do whatever it takes to bring the attackers to justice, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken responsibility for any security failures, though she also has cautioned that a full investigation of the attack remains under way.

Clinton will not testify. Nuland said Clinton was asked by the House Foreign Affairs Committee but the State Department wrote back to the chairman to say that she will be traveling abroad next week.

Don’t they have subpoena power? They need to use it on Petraus and Clinton.

Or a bi-directional “real-time” video/audio capability to any place, at any time, on the planet?

Huma Abedin (Mrs. Weiner ) would be a good stand-in; and Stephanie Powers.

Come on people. Get real

This investigation is a farce and we all know it.

The Congress should just get on with jacking up our taxes and stop putting on a farcical play we all know won’t amount to a hill of beans.

Congress represents America — but has willingly
FAILED over and over.

By their functional absence while they make their millions
at the expense of Americans, as they make ObamaCARE
the law for Americans, except for themselves and Islam,
they have saliently demonstrated that they ONLY
work for al Qaeda, Islam and Worldwide Communism.

What we will start to see is that congress will be ignored. Over the years congress has allowed themselves to become irrelevant. Now we have people in charge that feel they no longer need congress to carry out the plan to change who we are.

I believe the people of our country, as Levin suggests, now just seek to exist, not live. As sad as this reality is I do not want to give up, I just don’t know if talking and protesting is enough anymore.

"Don’t they have subpoena power? They need to use it on Petraus and Clinton.

THE FIX IS IN.
I now realize there is not a dimes worth of difference in the two parties.
ZERO has gotten away with so much it is hard to keep up. He will skate on this too.

“Invites”? What is this - the Junion Prom? Get that bitch a subpoena and some sodium pentothol and let the games begin.

Stop it! You’re turning me on. All this talk of Hillary under the influence of short-acting barbiturates is mildly stimulating.

Congress is finding out that in a communist/marxist regime - there is no “oversight.”

You don't "invite", you issue a subpoena.

How easily we forget how easily Hillary forgot: "I do not recall."

"Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar.

Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit."

That's Tony Rezko in the middle.

Precisely, if one presupposes a House with testicles, a trait shamefully lacking tho these many years.

She’s been abroad since Benghazi. Obama’s also now abroad. I wonder if they’re meeting somewhere away from electronics where they can negotiate her exit, ie, is he trying to talk her out of spilling the beans?

Well said. Plenty of authoritarian countries have elections. Like them, we have the privilege of giving the Dear Leader a mandate every four years.

The modern purpose of Congress is to give Him the imprimatur, the legitimacy of the people.

Levin I believe, is noodling State based opposition. Perhaps he will promote a Constitutional Convention, or at least the threat of one.
