The cover up is worse than the original crime. When the president conspires with others in government to lie to the American people and claim "national security" as a defense, the congress has a duty and precedent to get to the truth. Lying to the America people and ordering subordinates to lie in a cover up attempt is historically recognized as high crimes and treason and IS definitely an impeachable offense.
When the president of the United States commits high crimes and treason and then lies to the American people and conspires to hide it from congressional investigators and claims national security in an attempt to cover it up, not even his own party can save him.

What did the president know and when did he know it?
Going to be something to see all the unfortunate co-conspirators in this tragic affair frog-marched off to jail.
Was he in the sit room watching the feed or upstairs sleeping. If the latter, he would have known the next morning at the latest.
'Cause its gonna take all they've got if we're gonna get to the bottom of it - the left - democrat party, constituenties & media - will never yield for the truth.
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!
I expect we'll get the answer to that right after we get the answer to, "Who hired Craig Livingstone?"
I was just surfing and saw one of them mouthing the “National Security” line.
“When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal”...
Wow what a flashback - and how little things have really changed. Thanks, this will be a good history lesson (past and future).
How about a 4th issue, what was the big CIA mission there? Securing MANPADS, arming Syrians, detention, pure intel? This is the easiest for ObaMao to cover up with one blanket “executive privilege”. It didn’t help Reagan, but then Reagan was a patriot.
The possible additional scandals in this are unlimited.
Now she is directly involved in this Presidential scandal.

Unfortunately that doesn't always seem to be the case. Spineless bastards in both parties saved Bill Clinton from being removed from office. Still Republicans run the House and should begin impeachment hearings ... even if it is likely Obama would not be removed from office irregardless of the offense.
Packing a bag for vegas. Too bad he didn’t stay in Vegas.
Jim, you are a wise man and I respect everything about you. And, as much as I agree with you, I must also point out that the chances of getting Obama impeached are about the same as an ice cube surviving in h%ll.
The gutless Republicans have a ton of justifiable reasons upon which to bring impeachment charges against Obama, but they will never do it. Given the political divide between the House and the Senate, any action the House might take to impeach will be quashed by the Senate. It will end up like Clinton, the sequel.
I want this Impostor and Fraud in Chief gone as much as most of the people on this site do but, the problem is that the partisanship in the Congress is sharply divided and there is no longer any "loyal opposition".
And, that sharp political divide has permeated across the country and created a huge political divide among "we, the people". So, how do you suggest we proceed to get rid of him? We know that Benghazi is increasingly becoming a huge scandal and it remains questionable how long the DBM and the Congress can pretend it never happened. We also know that his "re-election" was the result of another massive fraud that the DBM and Congress are also pretending didn't happen (with the exception of Col. West who, apparently, hasn't gotten the RNC's talking point memo).
So, what choices do we have? I have contacted my Congresscritter about a variety of reasons to impeach Obama and nothing has happened; and, he is in charge of the House Judiciary Committee!
Short of taking to the streets (*which is anathema to conservatives), I don't know what else we can do. What are your thoughts?
I am encouraged that “reach across the aisle moderates” Graham and McCain as well as Ayotte are speaking and acting as though they already know from classified briefings that Barry CAN BE convicted in the Senate. They are being that brave, IMO, risking accusations of racism and (gasp!) incivility.
Seems I recall a young Yale-educated attorney (acting as counsel)....
None other than Hillary Rodham standing behind some of the House select committee members (Rodino... et als )...
It will be interesting to witness ---
When the "committee investigation" mechanism that began her political career...
....also (eventually) puts an end to the same.
Don’t be so sure. History repeats itself.
The crime has been committed. Part 1.
The conspiracy to cover-up has been committed. Part 2.
The first scapegoat has been named (Petraeus). Part 3.
But he won’t willingly go to jail:

The congressional investigators are beginning to smell blood in the water and demands for truth and action will be made. Part 4 commences.
When the press picks up the scent and goes into a feeding frenzy, part 5 won’t be far behind.
I wish I could do my job the way the President does his: really half ass and incompetent, yet still winning praise and called a hero.....
