Feinstein: Iíll subpoena CIA about Petraeus trip to Libya after Benghazi attack
Hot Air ^ | November 13, 2012 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 11/13/2012 6:06:09 AM PST by SE Mom

One piece of information that got lost the last few days of sex scandals is the news that David Petraeus personally traveled to Libya after the Benghazi attack — and apparently filed a “trip report” covering his own findings. Senator Dianne Feinstein, who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee probing the Benghazi terrorist attack, wants either the report or Petraeus to testify to its contents. So far, though, the CIA and the White House have refused to provide it — and yesterday, Feinstein threatened that subpoenas may be forthcoming if the stonewalling continues...

...This lack of openness, coming on the heels of the revelations of Petraeus’ affair and his resignation, will only raise more questions about why Petraeus is no longer testifying, and why he was so quick to get out of the way. When a Democratic Senator has to go on MSNBC to threaten a Democratic administration with a subpoena, well …. it should raise a few eyebrows.

...“The premise is not necessarily an investigation,” Feinstein said, speaking of an investigation into Petraeus. “The premise is to see exactly what happened. I believe that Director Petraeus made a trip to the region, shortly before this became public. I believe that there is a trip report. We have asked to see the trip report. One person tells me he has read it, and then we tried to get it and they tell me it hasn’t been done. That’s unacceptable. We are entitled to this trip report, and if we have to go to the floor of the Senate on a subpoena, we will do just that.”

Host Andrea Mitchell asked Feinstein for clarification, and Feinstein explained that trip would include “relevant information

I was just about to post the question about if anyone had read that Petraeus had gone to Benghazi only a few days before the election?

I posted this on another thread

http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/13/us/petraeus-allen-investigation/
CNN has confirmed that Petraeus recently traveled to Libya to meet the CIA station chief to discuss the attack.

Diane ‘calico curtains’ Feinstein isn’t the least bit interested in the truth.

Do I dare say I like Feinstein on this? How long before she gets a visit and will she listen to people warning her off?

I think he went with Chaffetz after the attack.

So he went again? Face to Face? Not wanting to discuss things over a phone or what?

Maybe he wanted to make sure the Libyan government supports his version of what happened. Also, to make sure they don’t reveal the real purpose of the annex. Promise them aid if they do.

Washington Post
Published: Friday, November 9

EXCERPT

Over the past week, Petraeus had traveled to Libya and Jordan, and directed the agency’s response to the controversy surrounding the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Officials said Petraeus insisted the controversy had nothing to do with his decision to resign.

What is so strange about it???? The Obama admin. trying to cover up their incompetence and lies? If you want to get to the truth on this find out WHEN Obama issued his directive!!!

I am flabbergasted no one is asking or inquiring about this, especially freepers, or maybe everyone else knows "when," but me!?

Petreaus is just a diversion.

All part of a ruse that the Rat pukes are pulling. The only serious acts this individual undertakes is to steer billion-dollar government contracts to her husband’s businesses and to defend Red China and her husband’s business interests in Red China.

So ... how did that subpoena for F & F documents work out? The administration just promptly complied and turned them over, right? </sarc>
