    to my knowledge, hillary never stated anything other than she had her own private server. prove that you are not making **** up by showing us that she has stated otherwise

    That she turned every email over, except a few hundred thousand that were erased?
    show us anything other than what hillary has presented, that all official correspondence was turned over to the state department for its archives and the balance, her personal emails, were deleted from that personally owned server

    The truth that she ran an investment house that NEVER lost one cent on an invetsment?
    what investment house has hillary ever run?
    i know your side tends to seek out the inept ones, but isn't it a positive characteristic for one to make profitable rather than unprofitable investment decisions

    Or the "truth" that Monica Lewiski was a slut/whore/bitch out to ruin her and her husband's life.
    so, you want us to believe that monica was forced to engage in sexual behavior with bill clinton, that she did not willingly have sexual relations with a married man of her own volition
    extra credit if you are able to identify the woman who was wronged by those extra-marital sexual encounters


    Or the "truth" of "what difference does it make"
    you tell us then, 'what difference did it make?'

    This is a woman of such profound "truth" she covered for a serial sex addict,
    share with us how hillary 'covered' any illicit sex act

    ... hid files from prosecutors only to "find" them after the fact,
    and your proof that hillary was the one behind the secreting of said files, please offer it so we can learn about it, too

    and "heroically" dodged sniper fire in Bosnia.
    did she not encounter any gunfire while she was in bosnia?

    That truth?
    yep
    the truth you nor the republicans in congress are able to show to be anything but fact

    The only thing this bag of dead gray matter considers "truth" is her own propaganda.
    something you continue to insist while the facts tell us otherwise
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    It's become very humorous, this fight for a woman of no substance as president because she is a woman. Yesterday, the People of Prince Edward Isand re-elected a gay premier. We in BC re-elected our third woman premier, one of five across the province, one of them a lesbian. And we had a woman prime minister in the late 80's.

    So this grand scheme of AA for Hillary is amusing in the extreme, a woman candidate because she is a woman following a disaster of a president who was president because he is black. They just don't get that symbolism is not what matters, but sound government from any leader regardless of skin color.

    And the real prize? She's tainted, crooked, and way past her best before date, but she could likely be elected anyway, felonies notwithstanding.
    Greetings, F & L.

    Well, there have been at least seven women Presidents in Latin America in the past, and most of them were elected by riding on a man's coat-tails, either their husbands or a mentor they served under. The majority are left wing, so Hillary will not be a groundbreaker in any sense of the word. Odd that most of the illegals in our country come from Latin America, though, so it appears their lives did not get better or they wouldn't be leaving their home countries, IMO. Time will tell how things go in the US if Hillary is elected - SOS, just under a female POTUS, or worse because of all the problems she or any other new POTUS will inherit from BHO? Why anybody would want the damn job is a mystery to me, because power carries responsibility with it, and the entire world seems to be unraveling at present!

    The bottom line is I no longer buy that Republicans in Congress give a **** about J. Christopher Stevens. Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith or Glen Doherty. I consider using this event to politically harm Clinton in the 2016 campaign season as nothing more than Republicans spitting on the very graves that they claim Clinton did with "what difference, at this point, does it make!?"

    Now I have a good and lengthy history myself of being very critical of Hillary Clinton on her handling Benghazi, her private email server, and dozens of other events from her past. I am no supporter of hers at all, but this is getting ridiculous. It comes off as obsessive clinging to potential political gain for Republicans that are all in on this hunt.

    The only caveat to this is if something new is learned, but I do not see it from these questions to date. I see it as political grandstanding by everyone that will be there who all do not seem to honestly care about what happened.
    Great post!

    Whatever 'truths' or 'untruths' are out there, they are being eclipsed by the political grandstanding & witch-hunting taking place - if Ms. Clinton wasn't running for office these hearings would never occur, and these incidents would be a small footnote in history, at best. (well to clarify, hearings would not involve Ms. Clinton, but would possibly occur centering on the other front-runner Dem candidate(s) as perceived by the GOP controlled house).

    This is an example of a co-opted out-of-control government, and resultant of the two-party system we are stuck with (sadly).

    The GOP are playing a dangerous political game too, running the line between scoring political points and alienating due to political grand-standing - all focused on independent and sway voters. (the bases are simply being solidified due to the polarizing nature of the hearings)

    But you brought-up the most poignant aspect of all this, and I commend you: The actual victims - the deceased & their families - are being desecrated in the name of politics, to the point one of the families requested their loved one's name be no longer used by one of the GOP candidates in his political attacks in the 2012 election cycle. (I don't recall which individual's family)

    Well, he does know the law and can force Hillary to take a deposition and he can subpoena her to go after what he needs. Records, server, and her very own ass. He just needs to learn how to be the Master of the Mic.

    Letting Hillary know.....there are no good hands under her ALL-State!

    I didnt know this was a negotiation. They should probably just subpoena her. There is no way this can go without Republicans being made to look bad by the media. Now that shes running for office, everything is going to be even worse. For all we know its part of her strategy. Maybe shell cry.

    I was taken aback this morning after reading the headline "Hillary agrees to testify." It sounded like she was in charge of the investigation and had a decision to make - and that surprised me. What would have happened if she had said no? I'm not being snarky; I honestly don't know how these things work.

    Why anybody would want the damn job is a mystery to me, because power carries responsibility with it,
    my first - and only - postulate normally, (s)he who aspires to a position of authority, does not deserve it, applies in this matter
    so many seek the power and authority yet have no idea what they want to do with it
    this is how i view hillary. she wants to be president, but is unable to articulate what she would do with the power of the executive once she acquired it
    and in contrast, it is why i support Elizabeth Warren; she is the reluctant leader. she has a sense of purpose, and that is why she should be the democratic contender for the white house

    and the entire world seems to be unraveling at present!
    the world is always unraveling somewhere, while being knitted together in other places
    i see this as a wonderful era ... especially when compared to the times of WWI, WWII and the (un)civil war. those who lived in those times would likely marvel that we would so disparage the circumstances of the world today by comparison to their own experiences

    and i expect her to
    the truth has served her well in all of the inquiries thus far


    actually, i would expect the facts to come out of a congressional hearing
    but that requires congressmen to have the ability to ask questions that reveal the facts
    your guys aren't up to it ... to date there are no investigative successes by issa or gowdy



    in other words, while hillary has been prevaricating, you insist, the republican congressmen are too inept to expose her lies, despite their considerable congressional powers


    why should hillary's responses be found other than the truth? the likes of gowdy and issa have been unable to show us that she has presented anything other than truthful responses


    again, there is nothing your side has been able to demonstrate that would tell us anything other than hillary has been honest in her statements
    just as there is nothing which tells us the IRS was anything but forthright in its actions
    and anyone who was on a plan could keep their plan, provided the insurer continued to offer said plan
    i look forward to seeing what gowdy and company can accomplish on the 18th. my money, were i a betting person, would be on hillary to again win this round
    not because she is so capable
    but because your team is so inept


    no, no, no, no...

    You do not get off that easy. You have been championing Mrs. Clinton as too smart to get caught by the "stupid" Gowdie. You have been assassinating the character of those who want to know what really happened, questioning their motives without evidence, based purely on your perceived bias. You have attacked the integrity of the chairman....you cannot now rise from that gutter and claim a moral high ground, not with a Clinton involved.

    Not a Clinton who was so brave in the face of 'deadly sniper fire', uh uh.

    Nope. The last thing she needs is sympathy points.

    no. he cannot make her give a deposition
    that is what he sought. a private hearing with a transcription
    and hillary insisted that any such activity be conducted in the public's view
    she has already nailed his ass to the wall on that one
