Bipartisan Select Committee for the investigation of Hillary Clinton

Bipartisan Select Committee for the investigation of Hillary Clinton

Kerry will cooperate fully with subpoenas directed to his predecessor’s conduct

Looks like the Select Committee headed by Trey Gowdy will be Bipartisan!

Politico reports, Benghazi panel to have 7 GOPers, 5 Dems:

The select committee that will probe the attacks in Benghazi will have seven Republicans and five Democrats, according to sources familiar with the GOP leadership’s plans.

A resolution to create the committee will come to the floor Thursday and is expected to pass by a wide margin. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) tapped South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy to chair the panel.

And it’s pretty obvious that Hillary will be a primary focus:

On  May 7, 2013 during one of the many House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearings on Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy, his voice slightly shaken with emotion, had the following ringing words to say –  and for their sake, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama better have been listening: “so if anyone wants to know what difference does it make, if anyone wants to ask what difference does it make (in reference to the now infamous Hillary Clinton quote) – it always matters whether you can trust your government – and to the families of the victims – we are going to find out what happened in Benghazi and I dont give a damn who’s career is impacted – we are going to find out what happened.”

Rep. Gowdy will now be able to completely fulfill that promise, and in the process, could destroy the political careers of one or both of the most powerful Democrats in America.

Rand Paul is encouraging the focus on Hillary:

Looks like John Kerry isn’t going to stand in the way:

Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday indicated he would comply with a House GOP subpoena to testify about Benghazi and other questions from the new select committee appointed by House Speaker John Boehner.

OOooooooh, yah…!!!

Here’s a lil’ observation… Gowdy has put cases together against some seriously smart people, and he’s won.

He knows you don’t build the case against a talented liar by asking the liar questions alone. No, no. EVERYBODY…every scrap of paper…goes in the edifice.

Seven to five? Just means one RINO has to flip.

Of course Pelosi wants it to be six-six and is threatening not to cooperate.

A weasel on immigration, but otherwise Gowdy seems a fine fellow.

But seriously, and I mean seriously, fix the hair.

Smart to hand Kerry an opportunity to stick one to his primary competitor for 2016, Hillary Clinton.

I hope the Dems understand that 5th amendment pleadings and claims of executive privilege, even meritable ones, will look evasive and connote guilt or something to hide. Three choices for most called to testify:

1. Tell the truth, likely to cause great problems for those at the top of the administration.

2. Lie and risk having it proved a lie.

3. Plead the 5th or executive privilege and look like you’ve got something to hide.

Boehner’s choice of Gowdy tells me they are serious about this, and the general weak-kneed nature of establishment GOP leaders tells me they already hold ‘smoking gun’ quality evidence or they wouldn’t take the chance on this the summer before midterms. If you want a ‘show’ select committee you don’t put a Gowdy in charge, and you don’t put a Gowdy in charge only to come up empty-handed.

They’ve got something all ready to go. Just got to set the stage before springing it. Awesome.

Buy popcorn futures.

    Kerry is in the position of being caught in the cross hairs of his personal creditability of which he works harder on than policy to defend. His integrity and trustworthiness, already compromised, is on the line to broker policy. Kerry’s appearance has the potential to emphasize just how inadequate he is and diminish him further.
    If he answers truthfully of his full knowledge, he stands at the heart of breaking apart Hillary’s 2016 run at the WH. If he continues the “talking points” and the Special Investigation finds more smoking guns originating from and leading back to the White House, Kerry will be key in setting up legal case(s) for Obama and/or his administrators potential prosecution. Not the legacy he sees for himself.

    Because Kerry has a large tendency to want to walk back what comes out his mouth, Henry is correct in his comment there will be a lot of activity in “popcorn”.

Gowdy has a stellar record as prosecutor in both the federal and SC state courts.

Kerry has nothing at all to lose by cooperating, assuming Obama isn’t willing to fire him over it. All the blunders and cover-ups happened before his watch (well, all the Benghazi ones), it’s just going to make him look statesmanlike to fully cooperate (although he has not been so forthcoming to date, so it could be just more wind blowing).

Hillary and Obama both need to come clean about where they were and what they were doing after being notified of the attack and talking to each other on the phone. If it were not something that will make them look very bad, why has it not already been released? We know neither was in the Situation Room, but where were they?

    Kerry has presided over the refusal to turn over subpeonaed documents in a timely manner sinc ehe assumed office, despite promising cooperation. He is at full risk of contempt via obstruction.

Elizabeth Warren has moist panties.

So Hillary is the designated fall-guy for Obama? I’m sure her sacrifice will be rewarded later.

I think this is a very political partisan waste of time… No plan to create jobs… Just trying to score political points because no conservative can win a national election right now. Hillary neglected Benghazi. Ms warren is a lie. We know that conservatives have no real plan except tax breaks so let’s distract with Benghazi. You have to think with a dislike for this administration in order to see the importance of Benghazi. Average Americans don’t care. We want jobs and opportunity. Americans are not caught in a conservative bubble. We don’t see things the same way. Albut according to conservative all non conservatives are brainwashed.

    @O BAMA617 – your objection is noted. Please be seated so your elders can speak.

    Almost two-thirds of Americans want the next president to offer a change from the policies of President Obama, according to a new Pew poll out Monday.
    The results show Obama’s in a second-term slump nearly as deep as that experience by former President George W. Bush, and are likely to be bad news for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or any other possible Democratic contender in 2016.
    What a moronic troll.
