Boehner Goes Bonkers With Claim That Obama Is Covering Up The Facts On Benghazi

“Benghazi facts” have become John Boehner’s Weapons of Mass Destruction lie.

Speaker of the House John Boehner went off the rails today by putting on his tin foil hat and claiming that President Obama is making it impossible for Republicans to get to “the facts” on Benghazi.

Video:

Boehner said:

I think the Benghazi Committee is doing fine work, and they’ve got a whole lot more work to do. They could clean this up a whole lot quicker if the administration and former Secretary Clinton were in a position to actually cooperate with the committee and turn over the type of information that we’ve been seeking for some time, but the administration has made it virtually impossible to get to the facts surrounding Benghazi, so when we have the facts, we’ll have the report.”

There have been seven previous Congressional investigations in Benghazi, and all have found no wrongdoing on the part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the White House. Boehner’s suggestion that the White House is witholding facts from Republicans is nothing more than blatant conspiracy mongering. Speaker Boehner wants the American people to believe that the truth is out there.

Speaker Boehner ignored the fact that a two-year investigation into Benghazi by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee found that the CIA and the military acted appropriately and that there was also no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.

Boehner was trying to blame former Sec. Clinton and President Obama for the obviously partisan timing behind the release of the report. The Gowdy led investigation into Benghazi was designed to impact the 2016 presidential election. It has always been a foregone conclusion that the latest investigation is nothing more than House Republicans trying to influence the 2016 election.

The idea that Hillary Clinton and the White House are hiding facts that seven previous Congressional investigations failed to uncover is flat out crazy. Boehner’s comments illustrate how desperate Republicans are to come up with something to stop Hillary Clinton.

If John Boehner has to sound like a mentally ill conspiracy theorist in order to attack Clinton and Obama, so be it.

  1. The ONLY ones who are covering up anything are YOU John and your Neo-Nazi Conservatives! YOU Mr. Boehner and the Goebbels channel NEVER report or admit that YOU voted down the PROPER funding for security for our foreign stations whatever their purpose. Benghazi is YOUR fault Mr. Boehner!

  2. “They could clean this up a whole lot quicker if the administration and former Secretary Clinton were in a position to actually cooperate with the committee and turn over the type of information that we’ve been seeking for some time”

    The key part is the part about “they type of information that we’ve been seeking”. Boehner is saying that this has not been a true fact finding mission but rather a “Get OBAMA” mission. The fact that the information they have been seeking doesn’t exist is irrelevant.

    By stating it the way he does, he implies there is that information that would damn the administration, even though he has no evidence whatsoever to back that up. But, unfortunately, peopel will believe him. Also note that he doesn’t say what “type of information” they are seeking. And the media doesn’t ask because if he told the truth, everybody would see this for the witch hunt it is.

  3. Will someone please think of the dead horse here?

    That poor thing has been beaten up, beaten down, beaten off and has been the victim of many, many, many other unspeakable acts all because one party is so adamant in their hatred of the president and the Democratic party.

    So, I speak for just about everyone here in saying that when it comes to Benghazi, they should just ‘Let It Go’.

  4. the usual problem with conspiracy theories is that it takes a LOT of people keeping quiet about the alleged conspiracy…

    if it were just Obama and Hillary then maybe you could make the case but this being Washington it would have to be the White House, the State Dept, the CIA, the Military and who knows who else agreeing to keep it quiet…

    the usual adage… best way to keep a secret… one person knows… next best… two people know… their is no next best after two… you have to start killing people which is hard to do because then you have to keep that secret…

  5. I think it galls republicans that this will be the first administration not to have even one good scandal. And of course that it took a black man to do it.

  6. Unfortunately, Boehner is in an extremely safe district. No one will run against him. It’s pretty much a forgone conclusion that until he is ready to go, he will have the job.

  7. There have been SEVEN investigations on Benghazi which found nothing and Boner doesn’t like it.
    THE TEA BAG/REPUBS ARE DESPARATE FOR DIRT ON HILLARY!!
    This is a sign of INSANITY!!!

    How the GOP Slowly Went Insane
    There are smart, honest conservatives at the ready to help govern practically and sincerely, but they are drowned out by the guttural scream of craven utopians raging against reality. This moment in American political life is insane. That a group of narrow-minded zealots could push us to the brink of economic ruin, that they maintain a base of support in their frenzied, quixotic, incompetent gambit, that there is an apparatus that exists to defend this kind of nonsense.

  8. I’m not sure he even has a mind to think with. His is so pickled with alcohol.
    On another Bonehead act, to day he kissed Sen. Pelosi on the cheek, If that were me I’d puke right there.

  9. Ed, it’s not because the rethugs didn’t try hard enough, they did. Just didn’t have much luck in finding one.
    also they tried so hard to make Pres. Obama’s administration a failure, and in the process created the situation where this Presidency will go down in history as a good one. With Pres Obama being one of the better, simply because he succeeded in getting things done, regardless of all the obstruction. Poor thugs will also go down in history as the worst, ever!

  10. One investigation might’ve been enough, but when you
    are dealing with the tea party learning curve, just like the
    countless attempts to overturn ObamaCare, tax payers
    were robbed of funds again & again. President Clinton’s
    first order of business should be to demand from the
    tea party pac full compensation to the US treasury dept
    for wasted funds. Especially the 24 billion their idiotic
    govt shutdown tantrum cost us. You baggers want ac-
    countability in govt? Well it’s time to put up or STFU!

  11. Why don’t this drunk either resign or go back to Israel. I’m sick of hearing this clown cry and complain about the same thing over and over. I think the this guy should be investigated why he went to Israel, when he doesn’t even do the damn job here that he gets paid to do. It’s for the Dems quit playing games with this guy. If roles would be switched and a Demo went to Israel they would have had a committees to investigate them.

  12. Some very rich GOPer called Boehner and told him to tell this lie. He doesn’t give a flip about this investigation. It’s a political tool, just like every other thing he’s done, He’s filed two “going nowhere” lawsuits against PBO, and he’s been mum on them since he announced his plan to pursue them. He’s a puppet of the Nat’l Chamber of Comm., Wall St., the Koch Bros, Adelson, Norquist, Singer, lobbyists, etc. When the Heritage Foundation told him in 2012 not to try passing any legislation but to pursue useless “investigations,” that’s exactly what he did. He gave up on doing his job as Speaker as soon as he got the position. He’s a weakling. He can’t even control his own caucus. This is why he’s always jumping in front of cameras and lying about everything under the sun. He already knows that his legacy will be one of failure. History will NOT be kind to him, and I hope historians will write about his failed Speakership, and that I’ll be around to read about it.

  13. Does this orange clown ever say anything truthful? I can’t recall one. Every time he opens his mouth, a lie is spewed out. When he retires, he’ll make a really good Fox “News” host.

  14. The gotp panic is all-consuming. They’ve promised their donors and very low info voters a SCANDAL, they didnt fulfill the promise. You know a gotp’er cant accept the word “NO”. I cant wait for the debates, the crazy will be monumental.

  15. if republicans spent this much time investigating Iraq as they have with Benghazi, maybe they would have realized there was absolutely no wmd’s there at all. the GOP conspiracy theories are costing us taxpayers millions and millions of dollars. the madness has to stop.

  16. What these morons are so desperately trying to cover up with all this talk about Benghazi is the fact that they have absolutely no policies or interest in representing those whose votes put them in office and doing something constructive for their own country. Wake up people!
