Oversight Dems Ask Issa to Call Off Benghazi Investigation
« on: March 29, 2014, 04:53:33 PM »
All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.”

The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter.

“Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process — is undermining the credibility of our Committee and the seriousness of our work,” they wrote.

Reaction to the Oversight Dems’ call spilled over into the Senate, where proponents of a hearty Benghazi investigation said Americans are still entitled to a full accounting of the Sept. 12, 2012, attack.

“I wish Democrats would show some interest in how and why President Obama and Susan Rice got it so wrong about the true nature of the Benghazi attack. I wish Democrats would show a little interest about why Secretary Clinton was clueless about the multiple security requests coming from Benghazi and how she allowed our mission to become a death trap,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). “I wish Democrats would show a little interest in finding out whether Mike Morell, the former #2 at the CIA, lied to Congress and the American people about a protest that never happened. Democrats seem to be more interested in protecting the Obama Administration than they are in getting the truth.”

“If Republicans win a Senate majority in 2014, one of the first things I will insist on is hearings that actually get to the bottom of what happened before, during, and after the Benghazi attack. The families of those who lost loved ones, and the American people, deserve nothing less than a full accounting.”

There are emails that are pointing to the White House Chief Council, as well as Lerner organizing the tea party attack making it obvious it was political targeting. Lerner has plead the fifth yet talks like chatty Kathy to the others. Democrats think this matter is closed because many were fired. They want the fact that Obama was involved to go away. Obama has said not one smidgen of corruption. It is nuts.

Who has authority to appoint a independent council? Or no one will because they know it implicates Obama and they can't have that or they will be called racists?

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Issa has been highly ineffective based on no results delivered. He failed at "Fast and Furious" and he has failed on Benghazi.

He should be replaced by a more competent figure, in the next session. He is not a lawyer, and the position probably takes a lawyer.
