    Well really JB.....he did tell her attorney sample questions. Not that they are the questions. Plus Hillary tried to say she would only testify one time. That's not happening and now she knows it and can't get out of it ...... unless she wants to take the 5th.

    Then Gowdy stated other members have questions and they aren't getting any of those samples.

    More than likely Gowdy has set her up and her attorney up. Misleading them and helping them to think he is just an average attorney. Just one of the good ole boys.

    Looks like they have taken the bait too.

    Not just Iraqis, we also lost 1000s of soldiers iirc.

    Bush's fault!

    That's alright F&L.....they luv to bring up Bush Jr and Iraq. But do note how they don't like to talk about how BO lost Afghanistan and got our troopers being killed and some over ROEs.....BOs' ROEs.

    As he said all along Iraq was not the War to fight. Afghanistan was. To prevent terrorists from having a breeding ground. Set up camps, arms and recruiting.

    Now what happened.....everything he said that he would try and do in the War that BO wanted to fight, he now allowed to happen in Libya. A Country we didn't put troops on the ground or go to war with.

    Its not hard to miss why most leaders thinking BO is an Amateur Politician and has no skills to be out playing where the Big Boys play.

    If she is "standing on the truth" as you put it bubba, she shouldn't have to worry about being interrupted...But I see, that you have to resort to ad homs when you know you hold a losing hand in debates...Pretty lame if you ask me...

    Oh, and at this point Hillary couldn't look good if she were someone else....She's toast. I only hope that the duped progressives keep her out there for the nomination...I literally could not think of anything better for a repub win than the disaster for this country that Obama has been, then putting up someone as corrupt as Hillary....Hell, You'd be better off running Sanders seriously....hahahahahahaha!

    Her evading questions and being coy is the objective?
    gowdy is chairing the hearing
    if he is unable to ask the appropriate questions to find out the truth, then y'all have elected an incompetent ... with good hair

    I thought you said she would "stand on truth"?
    and i expect her to
    the truth has served her well in all of the inquiries thus far

    If so, we expect to see some straight answers, which you and I both know will never happen.
    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


    Hilary Clinton is as dishonest as her "I did not have sex with that woman" sham husband, and she will evade questions with sly rhetoric as she always has.
    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

    I am glad to see you have again exposed the "truth" of the "progressive Hillary" cabal.
    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

    That honesty takes a second place to strategy and that like with Obama, anything, anything will be used to win, "including you can keep your plan" and IRS hassles for Republicans.
    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

    it would be misleading for anyone to think gowdy is an average attorney. he is not nearly so accomplished

    That's possible - Mr. Issa didn't get anywhere with her except to score the political soundbite, "What difference does it make"?

    I suspect she will not lose her emotions so easily this time around.

    To play the Devil's advocate: since none of us knows the truth, she may even stand on an 'untruth' and be un-budgeable.

    Either way, this will be an interesting battle between two Ivy League trained skilled prosecutors.

    I personally believe her server was set-up to shield her politically, just as the Clintons took all the personal computers with them when leaving the White House after Bubba's tenure - I seem to recall it was around a dozen, in number.

    It is all spin now is my point. If you can resolve yourself to the realization that nothing new will be learned form this "testimony" then the only thing left is how politics uses this, at our expense. What is growing more tiresome is this incessant method of going after Clinton using Benghazi as a method for political gain over actually honoring those lost over this fiasco.

    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.
