Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

Report: Team Hillary scrubbed Benghazi docs

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

If true, the inevitability of Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is seriously in doubt

We’ve seen so many Benghazi bombshells to date that have been deep-sixed by the media or flopped (60 Minutes), that I’m skeptical that this new report will damage Hillary.

I saw this photo on Twitter. The image is not dated, but I’m guessing the very early 1960′s, before the Berlin wall was completed. West Germans stare down the East after a young woman made it across the line. pic.twitter.com/NqAPl73SOM — Historical Pics (@HistoricalPics) September 13, 2014 Having crossed from West to East and back…
