    US State Department Official accuses State of purging Benghazi documentation

    Did Clinton Aides Withhold Damaging Benghazi Documents?

    "I told her that My name is on TV and Im on administrative leave, it seems like its about me. Then she said, Youre not harmed, youre still getting paid. Dont watch TV. Take your wife on a cruise. Its not about you; its about Hillary and 2016."

    Interesting turn of events. If this is true then a federal crime has been committed.

    Woah, interesting story. I never heard of this guy Maxwell until this.

    If this is true, it's pretty ugly.

    This is also how whistle blowers are made. The fixers for management always end up having to give someone the short straw who then flips on management. If this is true it appears that the fixers just assumed that Maxwell drank the cool aid and could be trusted to fall on his sword for the cause.

    A State Department spokesman calls the implication that documents were withheld “totally without merit.” Spokesman Alec Gerlach says “The range of sources that the ARB’s investigation drew on would have made it impossible for anyone outside of the ARB to control its access to information.”

    As a reporter you live and die on whistle blowers.....

    but you also learn to be wary. Everyone exaggerates, sometimes knowingly. The fact it was in a basement room is overblown and, I suspect, meaningless; there had to have been a pile of documents and room would be needed to catalog where it did not interfere with on going operations.

    It does, though, seem to have a lot of merit, his recall is very specific, his claims appear probable with the exception that I have to ask whether people who were committing obstruction of justice would be that open.


    Then there is this:

    Seems pretty clear, but be aware this is a "spokesman" who has infinite deniablility. Beware all such phrases as "impossible for anyone" as they are patently untrue. Such denials were routine in the Watergate investigation too......turns out the whole show as on tape and every one of those direct denials was horse****

    Must be a disgruntled employee, at least that's what I hear whenever I quote a former NSA, CIA or FBI official.

    Re: US State Department Official accuses State of purging Benghazi documentation

    Unless there are scraps of evidence that track back to this even (and I doubt there is) it's Maxwell's word against theirs. There may be more circumstantial evidence that may lend some credibility but no smoking gun unless someone took some of that evidence or, if more people come out and are willing to make statements under oath. I have no doubt this actually occurred though. If nothing else, this administration including the Clintons (historically speaking) are very adept at destroying evidence and keeping their asses out of the fire.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Please stop being so partisan. Every administration destroys evidence when they're about to have their asses dropped in the hot grease.

    The Justice Department will not file criminal charges over the destruction of CIA videotapes depicting the harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects, limiting the legal fallout from one of the Bush administration's most fraught legacies, officials said Tuesday.

    No charges in destruction of CIA videotapes, Justice Department says

    It's not partisan - it's factual. The IRS scandal which is on going should be enough to prove that.

    The Justice Department will not file criminal charges that lead back to Hillary - period. She is the DNC designate for 2016. You disagree?

    Maxwell was a "mustang" and that gives him more credibility than most.
