The House Benghazi committee’s Republican chairman is ignoring statements by his own former lawyer indicating that the U.S. military acted properly on the night of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Libya, the panel’s Democrats said. According to Reps. Elijah Cummings and Adam Smith, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., omitted the lawyer’s comments when he fired back at the Defense Department for criticizing the GOP-led investigation into the attacks that killed four Americans.
About 100 days after he invoked his Fifth Amendment right to avoid testifying before the House committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack, a key Hillary Clinton aide is at the center of the separate and ongoing investigation by the FBI into Clinton’s use of a private unsecured server while she was secretary of state.
Hillary got caught in another lie. House Republicans investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya on Wednesday released a March subpoena issued to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, one day after she said in a nationally televised interview that she “never had a subpoena” in the email controversy.
Syndicated Columnist Charles Krauthammer called the release of Hillary Clinton’s 296 emails relating to the attacks in Benghazi, Libya a “farce” on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”
It appears that Hillary supposedly wiped her server clean, of all emails pertaining to the Benghazi attacks. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said the former secretary of state has failed to produce a single new document in recent weeks and has refused to relinquish her server to a third party for an independent review, as Gowdy has requested.
This is going to really tick the Democrats off. Rep. Trey Gowdy has named lobbyist Phil Kiko, who started his career in Washington with the National Republican Congressional Committee, as staff director for the House select committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi.
