Skip to comments.Rep. Issa subpoenas Benghazi auditor Thomas Pickering
Posted on 05/17/2013 1:07:55 PM PDT by Nachum
The lawmaker leading the charge to investigate the Benghazi terror attack on Friday subpoenaed the co-author of a report that slammed the State Department but didn´t interview Hillary Clinton. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) formally demanded that retired ambassador Thomas Pickering submit to being deposed by the committee next Thursday. The subpoena comes in the wake of a series of acrimonious public exchanges this week between the two men. Issa didn´t issue a subpoena to former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullen, who co-authored the Benghazi report with Pickering.

Make them lie under oath or tell the truth.
Why not Mullen?
He should not get a pass....
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Are you sure about that? I mean, can’t you be subpoenaed to appear and testify without being under oath?
Any lawyers here?
Get hillary under oath. Get susan rice under oath.
Also, call in that drone operator that was on Hannity. He wants to come in and tell what he knows. He suggested the other drone flyers be called in.
Get that Admiral that is in the emails that is floating around saying that the who event was a planned and botched kidnapping.
heat this thing up to critical meltdown.
Hey, get President Jarrett under oath as well.
Is he the “michaeljm” listed among the recipients of several of the recently released e-mails?
As I see it, they want to nail down some information from Pickering, that he is aware of regarding Mullen. They would then depose Mullen and he would have two options. Lie, thus negating the entire validity of their report, or tell the truth.
Not a lawyer but my understanding is that a deposition is always taken under oath. Then later you have them before the committee testifying under oath and the answers BETTER match up.
The “kill shot” cometh .....
Yes, Obi Wan....
It may help to analyze and break down the word “subpoena”.
“sub” from the Latin stem meaning “below”, and
“peona” well I;’m sure you know what the meaning of that word is,
it should be plain to see that it means that Issa’s got him by the testicular appendages.
HELLry will be the last one called - the others will paint her into a corner where she has to admit the truth.
