Hillary Clinton Obliterates The Latest Republican Benghazi Stunt With A Single Letter

Hillary Clinton

In a letter, former Sec. Clinton’s attorney David Kendall took all the air out the Republican hopes to drag the Benghazi Committee into the 2016 election, and destroyed their latest conspiracy before it got going.

Kendall wrote to Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-OK) that Clinton wants to testify before the committee without delay:

In November, I informed your staff of Secretary Clinton’s willingness to testify before the Select Committee on Benghazi. In the succeeding months, she has reiterated her willingness, and I do so again on her behalf. There is no reason to delay her appearance, or have her testify in a private interview.

….

While Secretary Clinton has testified before committees in both the House and the Senate about the tragic events in Benghazi, she has made clear that she will voluntarily testify publicly again before the Select Committee and, at that time, is happy to continue to answer any questions the Select Committee may have about her email use.

Earlier in the day, Speaker of the House John Boehner claimed that the Benghazi investigation was going to stretch into 2016 because Hillary Clinton and President Obama are refusing to turn over “the facts.”

The truth is that House Republicans are trying to delay Clinton’s testimony in order to use it as an issue during the 2016 presidential election.

The ranking Democratic member of the Benghazi Select Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) put his finger on the real reason why Republicans want former Sec. Clinton to testify behind closed doors, “Secretary Clinton agreed to testify months ago—in public and under oath—so the Select Committee’s claim that it has no choice but to subject her to a private staff interview is inaccurate. Rather than drag out this political charade into 2016 and selectively leak portions of a closed-door interview, the Committee should schedule the public hearing, make her records public, and re-focus its efforts on the attacks in Benghazi.”

Clinton wants to testify in public because she has nothing to hide. By calling Boehner and Gowdy’s bluff, she is painting Republicans into a corner. The House Republicans are trying to imply that she is guilty of wrongdoing by creating the false perception that Clinton is unwilling to testify. Sec. Clinton and her team are masterfully exposing the partisan motivations behind the latest Benghazi investigation.

Hillary Clinton laid to waste the latest Republican attack on her before it ever got started. The message to Republicans is that Hillary Clinton isn’t going to engage in their games, and if they want to dabble in conspiracies, the former Sec. of State is ready to make them pay.

  1. It’s difficult to play chess with someone who is, in actuality, playing checkers, especially when those who are playing checkers don’t have a clue.

  2. She has been vindicated of any wrongdoing and even Republican led panels have cleared her. They just want to keep on going on with Benghazi and beat a dead horse. Not one single outraged Republican brought up the 80 dead Americans under Bush Jr and made it a campaign issue…not ONE

  3. they’re entitled to their own opinions but they aren’t entitled to their own ‘facts’…

    essentially they continuing to deny climate change or the science behind vaccinations no matter what facts are presented to them… I’m not a scientist so I can’t understand your facts… but show me something that proves it…

    maybe it would be clearer to them if someone explained that the winners right history…

    Obama WON!!!! so will Hill…

  4. Glad that Hillary is “cutting off the gopers at the pass,” offering to testify publicly.

    Trey Gowdy is actually from South Carolina, not from Oklahoma.

  5. You can bet if the situation was reversed, that none of the GOP candidates for president would EVER offer to testify.

    They are such chickens and they WOULD have something to hide.

    Proud of Hillary!

  6. Like cockroaches these republicans will do nothing in the public eye their whole agenda is based on lies and continual propaganda lying.

  7. First thing President Clinton should do is demand comp-
    ensation from the tea party for seven Benghazi investig-
    ations AND the countless attempts to recend the ACA.
    Oops, almost left out the $24 billion those idiots cost
    American tax payers for their ACA tantrum shutdown of
    the government. They are always demanding accountab-
    ility so let’s see them put up or STFU!

  8. Ras, I would love to see that! What a good idea, not that the GOPT would do it, but just to put it out there.

    They would have a hissy fit.

  9. The incompetence of the GOP in Congress is becoming staggeringly apparent. There seems to be no functioning gray matter in charge. Hillary is ready for you, boys. Continuing to try to resuscitate events like Benghazi into some kind of a smear on Hillary is like throwing her batting practice fastballs. If the entire GOP platform is a smear Hillary campaign, you lose.

  10. twin towers attack that they had knowledge of possible eminent danger and ignored it; then used it to start an illegal war on a lie.

  11. Oklahoma, South Carolina, Kansas – not important. They’re all phucking christian haters who suck at the teats of Koch Industries.

  12. Why does it matter now…she made her attitude public when she said what does it matter now. She and her attorney don’t matter now, she is a very bad person and she needs to go away. Our Country and our military need a better leader than she will ever be. Why would anyone ever vote for another liar or person who puts their agenda before the people of our country. One more that needs to be told no..

  13. The wicked witch puppet should be serving time.
    Without a doubt the worst presidential candidate ever. There really couldn’t be a more dishonest person than her and hubby horny goat.

  14. A responsible, non-owned news media would have reported from the start that Secretary Clinton had asked the GOP run house for funds to bolster security in foreign embassies and was turned down. This has to end, but the fear mongering GOP will never stop. Next up, Ebola. We’re heading into campaign season. You can always tell with these one-trick guys. And you know what’s sad, the American people fall for it every time.

  15. Way to go Mrs. Clinton. Put it right back on them where it belongs! You’ve got nothing to hide, have never had anything to hide, unlike those republicans trying to exploit this tragedy for their own selfish political gain at everybody’s expense. So astute, such political savvy and best of all; don’t let these cheaters push you around! Yup, sure sounds like my kind of president…

  16. “Why would anyone ever vote for another liar or person who puts their agenda before the people of our country.”

    Using that logic, why are all those Republicans still in office? That’s where you’ll find the majority of liars and people putting their and the Koch brothers’ interests above the people of our country.

  17. Why did so many geopigs vote for the bush/cheney war machine 2 times???? The so called “PRO LIFE SCUM seem to only care about zygotes. None of the unhinged seem to care about tens of thousands innocent people die.

  18. Hillary Clinton is indeed, playing chess. The latest select committee, is not playing checkers. They are playing Hungry, Hungry Hippos, Mouse Trap, and Twister, simultaneously, and most of the pieces of each of those games are missing, although they don’t know that.

  19. No one is screaming, “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi”, but their base. No one else will be swayed who have not already made up their minds.

  20. Every minute spent ‘testifying’ before a Kangaroo Republican Court, is a minute she’s not out campaigning.

    Which is the real reason for the ‘charges’.

  21. To Robin Waugh: please, Robin, for your own well-being (and maybe a chance to open up your brain cells,) turn off FOX.

    It’s pretty obvious by your comment that you’ve probably seen Hillary saying “what difference does it make” without ANY words she said before or after those — or what the actual context was during which she said them. No matter what brainless tripe the GOPers were throwing at her, THOSE words are the only ones you remember, because THOSE words are the only ones FOX tells you that “matter.” You must like being conned.

    Context matters. Context is that which normal, thinking people use to determine what phrases such as that one actually mean.

    Same thing as when President Obama gave a speech; he said (in the midst of a thousand other words) “you didn’t build that.” FOX told you that those words were the only ones he said!

    CONTEXT MATTERS, Robin.

  22. Isn’t it sad that these ReTHUGliCLOWNS are so afraid of a woman!

    Why don’t they just give it up and realize the majority of the electorate DON’T GIVE A RAT’S BEHIND ABOUT BENGHAZI!

  23. House Panel: No White House Wrongdoing In Benghazi
    August 4, 2014
    The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee concluded there was no wrongdoing by the White Housein the September, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
    The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public.
    [California Democrat Mike] Thompson [pictured] said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given.”
    That conflicts with accusations of administration wrongdoing voiced by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista (San Diego County), whose House Government Oversight and Reform Committee has held hearings on the Benghazi attack

    THE TRIAL FOR BENGHAZI IS OVER,,, no wrong doing was found by a REPUBLICAN HEARING,,,,,,,make…

  24. Funny how the right wingers harp on Bill Clinton being unfaithful, while Newt was having an affair while he was harping on impeaching Clinton over it. LOL

  25. I myself want to know what Donald Trump thinks about all this nonsense. After all, he did uncover that Obama isn’t an American. JUST TO CLARIFY: this post is joking.

  26. Carol,

    I’m sure his people are still in Hawaii tirelessly searching every beach and club leaving no bar or club unchecked in that ever elusive hunt, all on Mr. Goodhair’s dime of course
    [WINK]

  27. Once again we have the republican party with absolutely nothing to offer Americans but the same old tax breaks for the wealthy will get the economy moving- proven false over and over again, getting rid of health care for millions of Americans, telling us brown skinned people will take away your jobs, queers will destroy your marriage, Muslims want to kill you, blah, blah, blah.
    A desperate, dying party who can only get wins by gerry-mandering, denying people their constitutional right to vote, and making people afraid of their own shadow.
    Pathetic!

  28. Think you could try to write without being so crude?

    Btw– there is more info on the Benghazi attack that is needed from emails. Committee is making an effort to get Hillary’s “erasures”. — of course she eliminated the incriminating ones –along with her yoga appointments!!
    If you believe Hillary about anything, there are a bunch of bridges out there people would like to sell to you too….hahahaha
