    Anyone who thinks Bill Clinton has “more than paid” for any of his misconduct is completely out of touch. However, that’s exactly what Obama’s former chief of staff, Leon Panetta, is saying about Clinton’s Oval-Office affair with Monica Lewinsky. Does Panetta also think Clinton has “more than paid” for what he’s done to the countless other women he allegedly abused, raped, groped, and harassed? The same women who Hillary trashed and abused again? From Breitbart Saturday on CNN, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, a chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, said that Clinton “more than paid the price”...

    On Monday morning, Special Counsel Robert Mueller officially issued the first charges in his ongoing investigation into the 2016 presidential election. Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates were charged with 12 felonies ranging from lying to federal agents, tax fraud and money laundering. But Mueller's probe isn't simply about Republicans. During an interview with CNN Monday night, former CIA Director Leon Panetta said Mueller is just getting started and that Democrats should also be nervous.

    Former CIA Director Leon Panetta told CNN that the Intel Committee need to look into the DNC and Clinton campaign. Former CIA Director Leon Panetta said that the Senate Intelligence Committee is going to have to look into the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for funding the controversial Trump dossier during an interview on Thursday. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Panetta how it was possible that neither “the chair of the DNC and the Clinton campaign” knew about payments for the dossier. “Well, it’s obviously something that the Intelligence Committee is going to have to look at,” Panetta...

    In March of 2012, Senator Jeff Sessions had a shocking exchange with Leon Panetta, Obama’s CIA Director. In the exchange caught on video, you can see General Kelly, the current White House Chief of Staff, sitting smugly behind Panetta. I find it very revealing that Kelly is present at this controversial time during the Obama administration, and now he is guarding President Donald Trump as White House Chief of Staff. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the President should not consult the Congress but look to the globalist power of NATO and the...

    While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boozes it up in Australia and the Pentagon grapples with more floozy eruptions, outraged military families are still waiting for answers about the forgotten 9/14 attack on Camp Bastion. Muckrakers and distraction engineers are having a front-page field day with the so-called "sex scandal." But for surviving relatives and colleagues of heroic Marine Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell, it's the national security scandal at Afghanistan's Camp Bastion that deserves headline coverage. There's been a virtual blackout of the alarming story in the national press. As I reported last month, the meticulously...

    Former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta said Monday that there is no evidence “at all” to back President Donald Trump’s claim that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, ordered wiretaps inside Trump Tower during last year’s election. The president, Panetta said, owes Obama an apology and ought to admit that “a mistake was made” when he leveled the accusation on Twitter earlier this month. “I don't think there is any evidence here,” Panetta said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about Trump’s wiretapping allegation. “The president frankly ought to acknowledge that a mistake was made, apologize to President...

    ...While Panetta pointedly never mentions Rhodes’s name, it is clear whom he is talking about. “There were staff people who put themselves in a position where they kind of assumed where the president’s head was on a particular issue, and they thought their job was not to go through this open process of having people present all these different options, but to try to force the process to where they thought the president wanted to be,” he says. “They’d say, ‘Well, this is where we want you to come out.’ And I’d say ‘[expletive], that’s not the way it works....

    WASHINGTON — It's been a constant quandary for the Obama White House: Should the president reach out to his Republican opponents or isolate them? Should he compromise to move his agenda or try to split the GOP ranks? Carrot or stick? [BIG SNIP] Democrats continue to debate how the president should approach that process — offering concessions or lines in the sand. This week, former Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta told reporters he thought Obama should put "everything on the table," as well as do more to build relationships with Republicans.........

  • BREAKING: Smoking Gun Email Found… PROVES Hillary Left Benghazi Victims to Die

    08/22/2016 1:38:11 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 131 replies
    The latest in the email scandal plaguing the campaign of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has provided proof of what many on the right have known all along — that then-Secretary of State Clinton left Americans to die in Benghazi. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave testimony in 2013 stating that there was no time to get help to Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, where four Americans died. An email obtained by Judicial Watch and recently released appears to be in direct contradiction of this claim. Fox News reported that an urgent email from Panetta’s Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash...

    Martha Raddatz, who was hosting ABC's This Week this morning, had a chance to score a major scoop but she blew it by failing to ask a very obvious followup question to former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. You can see the original question posed by Radddatz at the 3:32 mark of the video below about Panetta having supported a small number of American troops remaining in Iraq and where then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stood on this. This was followed by Panetta completely dodging the question on Clinton's position. However, instead of pressing Panetta on this, Raddatz avoided the...

    When you read this, sip slowly, dust off the way-back machine, and think about those who have surfaced visibly to support Hillary Clinton. Including “retired” U.S. General John Allen (retired in 2012), who was previously brought out of retirement to lead President Obama’s fight against ISIS in 2014. In order to understand the scope of the relationships it takes understanding the full back story. Stay with it…. general john allen The question posed to the Tree House back in 2014 was: Why is the White House selecting a retired General John Allen, instead of a current commanding officer to lead...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I'll tell you another trick. You know when this whole business of showing movies and videos before a candidate -- do you remember when that started? Be careful. It started with Jimmy Carter in 1976. The Democrat convention in 1976, they produced this moving, tearjerker video, didn't really have much to do with Carter. It was about how great and wonderful the Democrats are, what they're gonna do for the country. It focused on the pain and suffering out there that the Democrats were gonna fix, and it genuinely was a tearjerker. Jimmy Carter won that primary...

    On the third night of the Democratic convention, a speaker finally brought up defeating ISIS and other terrorists — only to be met with boos from the crowd. "These murderers must be stopped," declared former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta. Cue the deafening chorus of boos, plus chants of "No more war!" from convention delegates. [Snip] [This] helps explain why no speaker brought up the terrorist threat - or groups like Boko Haram and ISIS - on the first two nights. This is the Democratic base that Hillary Clinton must deal with in the fall campaign. And...

    The U.S. military acted properly on the night of the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, according to leaked testimony from a retired, three-star Army general who served as chief lawyer for Republicans on the House committee investigating the attacks. Retired Army Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman “repeatedly commended the military’s actions on the night of the attacks during closed interviews with Defense Department officials,” including a Jan. 8 interview with former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Democrats on the committee say. […] The Democrats’ letter quotes Chipman as telling Panetta: “I think you ordered exactly the right forces to move out...

    We hope Sens. Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are giving that devastating new profile of resident Obama’s foreign-policy guru a careful read. Because they’ll learn how they were all played for fools on the Iran nuclear deal by that aide, Ben Rhodes — and the resident. That applies especially to Schumer, who will be the Senate Democratic leader come January. Booker and Gillibrand hewed to the party line in backing the deal. Schumer gave it a thumb’s-down — but then refused to lobby his colleagues to take his side. Sen. Bob Menendez, on the other hand, is looking...
