    If you have to ask, it went right over your head. Not surprised. And yes, when you have a GOP-led investigation against a DEM administration, I'll dismiss it and accept their findings. Now does that mean that Obama and Hillary did everything right or correct? Absolutely not, in fact I think they were quite incompetent in how they acting in their actions leading up to and beyond. However, the investigation determined that nothing ILLEGAL happened.

    Just because nothing ILLEGAL happened, doesn't mean they did everything right. That is what you simply cannot grasp and is why your comments are nothing by partisan garbage.

    You just don't accept it because you are as partisan as they come and your comments have NO logic to them.

Someone grabs the Mic. Not many mention that part. Especially not those on the left here. Its like they were trying to avoid that fact.

    It isn't purely for politics when none has taken any responsibility other than saying those words. Moreover.....Clinton never checked back on her people to see if they made it out alive. Which was confirmed by herself that she did not speak to anyone until the next morning, after talking to Hicks.

    While not a crime in itself.....it does point to her True Character.
    Which Republicans are sure to deal with in attack ads during the campaign season. They will probably go with that against Clinton no matter if this "special panel" was created or not, they find anything or not, and it results in any action or not.

    So, political motivations this is certainly most about. It has to be, the timing even supports the notion.

    What tires me most about this is we have yet more cost and time into this effort that is devoid of finding the actual truth on what happened over there. I'm sorry, I just do not buy the Republican hype on this any longer as being sincere on this matter. Politically Republicans will gain far more than the families of those involved possibly can from this effort. I would agree, that is sad but very accurate.

    Perhaps you are not a very good communicator. And like the Lawless One, you must blame others for your own self imposed inadequacies.

    And yes, when you have a GOP-led investigation against a DEM administration, I'll dismiss it and accept their findings.
    Without the powers of a select committee it was never likely that any of the myriad fractured investigations would uncover anything. Those investigations bought time for the regime. Now years have passed and Boehner chooses to do what he should have done at the beginning.

    I believe Boehner has been let off his leash but only just a little. He can drag out the process for another year or so. I think this is what is likely to happen.

    Now does that mean that Obama and Hillary did everything right or correct? Absolutely not, in fact I think they were quite incompetent in how they acting in their actions leading up to and beyond. However, the investigation determined that nothing ILLEGAL happened.
    You are not paying attention. I understand why. Unless the investigation is by a select committee it is unlikely to discover the truth. Were any of the previous House investigations done by select committees with professional investigative staffs?

    Just because nothing ILLEGAL happened, doesn't mean they did everything right. That is what you simply cannot grasp and is why your comments are nothing by partisan garbage.

    You just don't accept it because you are as partisan as they come and your comments have NO logic to them.

    And this is why you aren't taken seriously. You have a PRE-MADE determination of what happened and since none of the facts support your claim, it MUST be that Boehner was helping Obama.

    Your comments only PROVE your partisan hackery. You won't be satisfied until something, ANYTHING supports your claims and you will dismiss ANY and ALL facts until that happens.

    Has Marry Landrieu of Louisiana called Hillary down to help her Win her run-off election ? NO

    She's as toxic as Obama.
    Than why keep bringing up Benghazi? A Republican led committee found no wrong doing with the Obama administration's handling of the matter. Why Lindsey Graham (R SC) is cussing out his own party for having the gumption of showing actual objectivity with their findings instead of sticking with the usual "go team go; raw team raw" attitude.

    Mollie Z Hemmingway of the Federalist is having a conniption and Newt Gingrich is having a theory that probably deserves to be thought of as belonging to some far-fetched tabloid.

    I'll say it again: the GOP is frightened of that Hillary run off in 16.

    Yep. The toilet will have some much money thrown down it that a plunger will be useless; it's more like a job for Roto-Rooter.

    Well, I didn't say it wasn't politics. As Boehner knows that the State Dept and CIA and Intel Agencies are pointing the finger at each other, for the mistakes made and whatever Regulations that were missed or people were Derelict with. Then the deception that was played out for the American people.

    The Bottomline was BO and his team were caught with their pants down in an election. They thought not much required attention. They had AQ on the run. BL was dead. BO thought he could hear the Fat Lady Singing.

Talk about Congress "going off the rails on a crazy train" (Thanx, Ozzy).

    Article is here.
    No this is to hurt Hilary pure and simple. By doing this, they can keep calling her and her people in and getting the story in the media during her campaign for the 2016 nomination and run for President.

    It is a filthy political tactic that should be beneath any real politician or political party.

    I suppose it is possible that Boehner remained drunk this entire time. It is far more likely that the Obama regime got something on Boehner just as they got something on Chief Justice Roberts. After all, we are spending many tens of billions of dollars to spy on Americans each year.

    Your comments only PROVE your partisan hackery. You won't be satisfied until something, ANYTHING supports your claims and you will dismiss ANY and ALL facts until that happens.
    Right. I suppose we shall see. If Boehner fully funds and staffs the select committee in January and if the hearings begin in March or April, then you may be right. Let's see what happens.

Did you wan't to try and Deny that there isn't any of that too? Now don't be confused by any of that meaning.....Classified.

    Was it really hard for you to actually figure out how committees work? Do you even know how party politics works with committees? I mean was it so hard to admit that you didn't know how committees work with investigations.

    Tell you what, rather than you just talk and shake, rattle and ho hum about Benghazi. Don't, as it leaves you looking like you absolutely have no clue as to how reality played out.
    Still here? Remember MMC, 6 investigations, 6 Republican investigations, and nothing.

A select committee with a qualified staff, the right to depose witnesses and question them under oath may uncover the truth. Boehner knows it. So why did he wait until now?
    So Boehner is now going to uncover what he helped cover up? Keep the conspiracy theory together.
