  • Gowdy Says 'Significant Breakthroughs' Were Made in Benghazi Probe After Susan Rice Testimony

    Rep. Trey Gowdy's Benghazi committee appears to have had a very productive meeting with national security adviser Susan Rice this week. Following her testimony Wednesday, the chairman said they have made "enormous progress" in their investigation. No one is soon to forget how Rice went on several talk shows in 2012 repeating the lie that the Benghazi terror attack was the result of an offensive YouTube video. Congressional Republicans were so frustrated with her repeating the same false talking points that they asked for her resignation. Now, she was finally called before the Benghazi Select Committee, and from what it...

    Update: One source directed me to a Fox News interview yesterday with Gowdy for the source of the “crucial national security records” referenced in his statement. “You will hear new names that no one else has heard,” Gowdy said. “Even this past week, we got information from the CIA that no other committee of Congress has ever bothered to ask for or receive.” Hmmmmm.Original post follows …===Looks like we may find out sooner rather than later what the House Select Committee on Benghazi has found about the attack that left four Americans dead, dozens more waiting for help, and the...

    Like and share the link. Get people pissed & get them involved. Hillary Clinton Laughs about Benghazi Murders Hillary Clinton laughs about the night of the Benghazi attack when asked if she was alone by Rep. Martha Rody on the night of the Benghazi. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton allowed security to fail at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, blamed the attack on the video, & has failed to punish any state department official for the disaster. The U.S. Military was not allowed to rescue those in the Benghazi Consulate despite the attack lasting hours. There were likely weapons...

    There was Hillary Clinton, telling Al Sharpton of all people that she found Kevin McCarthy's comments about the Benghazi hearings "deeply distressing." That was too much for the Morning Joe panel, which just had to laugh. As John Heilemann put it, far from being distressed, Hillary surely sees McCarthy's commentsimplying a political motive behind the hearingsas a Christmas and birthday gift wrapped into one that sent her "skipping through the park.

  • Heilemann: McCarthy Comments on Benghazi Hearings 'Disaster' for Republicans

    How damaging to Republicans are Speaker-presumptive Kevin McCarthy's comments in which he tied the drop in Hillary's poll numbers to the Benghazi hearings? Very damaging, according to the With All Due Respect duo on today's show. John Heilemann called them a "disaster" for congressional Republicans and GOP presidential candidates alike. Mark Halperin called them a "huge, huge problem" for the GOP. Interestingly, Halperin praised committee chairman Trey Gowdy, saying that he had been "carefully preparing the hearings, trying to do what no Republican has done in a long time, run a politically effective, substantive hearing." But, said Halperin, there's "almost...

"I can't skip over a witness that I think we ought to talk to simply because there is an assertion of either privilege or immunity,"Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

    Representatives of prominent conservative groups converged on the Heritage Foundation on Monday afternoon for the umpteenth in a series of gatherings to draw attention to the Benghazi controversy. But this one took an unexpected turn. What began as a session purportedly about unanswered questions surrounding the September 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Libya deteriorated into the ugly taunting of a woman in the room who wore an Islamic head covering. The session, as usual, quickly moved beyond the specifics of the assaults that left four Americans dead to accusations about the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating the Obama administration, President Obama...
  • Hillary Stacks the Benghazi Select Committee: Pelosi is her stooge

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 05/24/2014 | Arnold Ahlert
    On Wednesday, Democrats deigned to join Republicans on the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi, primarily to protect Hillary Clinton’s reputation in particular, and the Obama administration’s in general. Toward that end they will likely do what they always do whenever their party is threatened: denigrate the investigation as it unfolds and obstruct it as much as possible. Thus, it was completely unsurprising that even as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appointed five colleagues to the panel she dismissed the need for it. “The Republican obsession with Benghazi has not been about the victims, the families or the country,” she...

Here they are: * Elijah Cummings, Ranking Member on the House Oversight Committee * Adam Smith, Ranking Member on the House Armed Services Committee * Adam Schiff, a member of the Appropriations Committee who vehemently opposed the creation of the panel * Linda Sanchez, a member of the Ways and Means Committee * Tammy Duckworth, a member of the Armed Services Committee A...

    While some lawmakers have questions about what happened before or after the 2012 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Rep. Tom Cotton said he wants to know what President Barack Obama was doing during the attack. "As a former soldier myself, I particularly want to know what happened during the attacks. Why didn't the president send reinforcements from Tripoli, or from our fleet in the Mediterranean Sea, or even from Italy?" the Arkansas Republican said Monday on "Fox & Friends." While conceding that support forces "might not have reached Benghazi in time," Cotton said, "You just don't know...

    The hottest competition in Washington this week is among House Republicans vying for a seat on the Benghazi kangaroo court, also known as the Select House Committee to Inflate a Tragedy Into a Scandal. Half the House has asked to serve on the committee, which is understandable since its the perfect opportunity to avoid any real work while waving frantically to right-wing voters stomping their feet in the grandstand. They wont pass a serious jobs bill, or raise the minimum wage, or reform immigration, but House Republicans think they can earn their pay for the rest of the year by...

Two of their families have called us and said, Please dont take us down this path again, Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. Its really hard for them. Its very sad.

    House Democratic leaders have been unstinting in their criticism of the select committee established this week to investigate the aftermath of the 2012 attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya. Now they are facing a touch choice about whether to join it, cautiously weighing which strategy would be riskier politically and whether their instinct to boycott the select committee might just give it more power in the end. Democratic leaders have called the new committee a political ploy, a stunt, a sham, a waste of taxpayer dollars and, in the words of White House spokesman Jay Carney, a blatantly...

Deputy spokesperson Marie Harf said Kerry, who has been overseas, is aware of the subpoena, announced Friday by Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif. As weve said repeatedly, we were all surprised, quite frankly, that instead of working with us and reaching out to us and offering first an invitation to testify, that Chairman Issa jumped immediately to subpoenaing...

    A newly released smoking gun Benghazi email which was improbably obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and not via the numerous but uncoordinated congressional investigations into the issue underscores the need for a special committee to investigate the matter, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) said in a new letter. Yesterday, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released a new set of documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request directly tying senior White House officials to inaccurate messaging about the deadly terror attacks in Benghazi, Wolf wrote in a letter to Speaker John Boehner.
