The entire Hillary Clinton Benghazi Hearing
Within congress Hillary has 2 major problems.
Problem 1 the Benghazi Committee,
Problem 2 the Government Reform committee
Four people lost their lives in the Benghazi's planned revenge attack when Libyan President Ghadaffi was removed by the USA and members of the Islamic militant group Ansar al-Sharia broke into the medium security American embassy facility.
Two CIA agents were shot on the way in, but primarily resulting in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.
Stephens had previously asked for more security protection as he had seen crowds gathering and there were further communications, that seem to be lost.
There was an official back door extraction plan in place , except none of that happened... What happened was while Hillary Clinton was laughing on TV news shows, Christopher Stevens was being dragged through the streets raped beaten electrocuted and finally murdered in front of a crowd.
United States House Select Committee on Benghazi
The United States House Select Committee on Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi was created after Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner, on May 2, 2014, proposed that a House select committee would be formed to further investigate the 2012 Benghazi attack.
On May 8, 2014, the House voted 232–186 to establish the select committee, with 225 Republicans and 7 Democrats in favor, and 186 Democrats voting against. The chairman of the committee is Representative Trey Gowdy from South Carolina.
“I remain hopeful there are still things left in our country that can transcend politics. I remain convinced our fellow citizens deserve all of the facts of what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi and they deserve an investigative process worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens.”— Chairman Trey Gowdy, in opening statement
The first hearing was held on September 17, 2014, Final report July 2016.
the introduction of the report is interesting :
The Republicans on the committee released their main report on June 28, 2016 with committee chairman Gowdy saying its contents should "fundamentally change the way you view Benghazi."
“We urge the Obama administration to clear for public release all of the supporting evidence and documents referenced in the more than 2,100 footnotes in the report, including all of the transcripts of the committee’s witness interviews and all of the video footage from the drones operating over Benghazi during the attacks. The administration should do this as fast as possible so the American people can see all of the evidence for themselves.”
Chairman Gowdy reiterated his longstanding intention for the committee to release all cleared transcripts and supporting documents as soon as possible, once the administration completes the review process. According to H. Res. 567, “The Select Committee shall cease to exist 30 days after filing the final report” in the House, during which time the committee will archive records.
The State Department failed to protect U.S. diplomats in Libya: Clinton and the administration should have realized and addressed risks. (The Democrats' version of the report acknowledges "security measures in Benghazi were woefully inadequate").
The CIA misread how dangerous Libya was in midst of a revolution after overthrowing Khaddafi a year earlier.
The Defense Department failed to rescue Americans: U.S. military forces did not reach Benghazi until mid-afternoon the day after the initial attack on the compound. "No U.S. military asset was ever deployed to Benghazi despite the order of the Secretary of Defense at 7 o'clock that night," Gowdy said.
The Administration subverted investigation through what Gowdy described as "intentional", "coordinated", and "shameful" stonewalling. Clinton deleted numerous emails on the private server she was using for official business, which the report says "makes it impossible to ever represent to those killed in Benghazi that the record is whole."
A Clinton aide influenced the State Department's review: Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff has said she offered suggestions on drafts.
Americans were transported to Benghazi airport by Khaddafi loyalists, the same group the U.S. had sought to oust earlier. Stated the report: “Some of the very individuals the United States had helped remove from power during the Libyan revolution were the only Libyans that came to the assistance of the United States on the night of the Benghazi attack.”
A White House meeting during the attack generated a list of 10 action items, half of which related to an anti-Muslim YouTube video that sparked protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
There has been a widespread misunderstanding about Clinton publicly blaming the aforementioned video on the Benghazi attack, which arose from confusing language in her public statement written by her then Deputy Chief of Staff, Jacob Sullivan.
In addition to the main report, alternate versions of committee findings were also prepared; another by House Republicans and one by House Democrats. The State Department prepared a report of its own internal investigation of the attack.
Who are Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz, why do they have so many fans and most importantly, do they have any power against the political elite.
Jason E. Chaffetz (born March 26, 1967) is the U.S. representative for Utah's 3rd congressional district, first elected in 2008. He is a member of the Republican Party. He is also the chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
I included a picture of the whole Government reform committee, for context, because we may not be familiar with all the characters, but its really 3 people out of the committee that have said anything interesting, Jason Jim & Trey.
Most recent press release from the Government reform committee:
Request Removal of Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement and summary findings after the FBI released additional files related to its investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“We find Under Secretary Kennedy’s actions extremely disturbing. Those who receive classified intelligence should not barter in it – that is reckless behavior with our nation’s secrets. Someone who would try to get classification markings doctored should not continue serving in the State Department or retain access to classified information. Therefore, President Obama and Secretary Kerry should immediately remove Under Secretary Kennedy pending a full investigation.”
The Chairmen sent letters to U.S. State Department Secretary John Kerry and Inspector General Steve Linick requesting the immediate removal of Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy and an investigation into the misconduct.
A summary of key findings from the documents is below.
The State Department put immense pressure on its own employees and on the FBI to determine none of the information in Secretary Clinton’s emails was classified.
In the spring of 2015, Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy contacted a senior FBI official to request the FBI reverse its finding that one of Secretary Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails contained classified information. Kennedy allegedly assured the FBI official State would “archive the document in the basement of [the Department] never to be seen again,” withholding it from the public under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exception (b)(9), which relates to geological and geophysical information.
: Quid pro quo = ("something for something" or "this for that" in Latin)
In response, the FBI official proposed a “quid pro quo” to downgrade the classification if the State Department would support increasing FBI personnel into Iraq. A veteran diplomat like Kennedy should have been receptive to the FBI’s personnel needs without resorting to a bargain that could threaten national security information. Due to the sensitive nature of the information, the classification was never ultimately downgraded.
Thereafter, the State Department stopped conferring with the FBI on classification decisions related to Secretary Clinton’s emails, and instead consulted with the Department of Justice to represent FBI equities.
Career State Department personnel who typically handle FOIA requests told the FBI the process for reviewing and releasing Secretary Clinton’s emails was highly unusual, coordinated through the Office of Legislative Affairs rather than the normal FOIA office, and that decisions were made far differently for these emails than for any other FOIA request.
These career public servants, which normally process FOIA requests, considered it odd that a separate system was set up to review the Clinton emails, including bringing on Austin Evers and former IRS employee Kate Duval, both of whom had formerly worked at Williams & Connolly – the very same law firm representing Secretary Clinton.
The two Legislative Affairs attorneys met regularly with a group of senior State Department officials which the career personnel dubbed “the shadow government.” The group included Secretary Kerry’s Chief of Staff, Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy, and others, who met to decide how to respond to Congressional and FOIA requests related to Secretary Clinton.
Secretary Clinton has said her federal records were preserved throughout her tenure through the Department employees who received emails from her. Accordingly, the State Department sent a Department-wide request to produce to the FOIA office any emails with Secretary Clinton. Yet when Secretary Clinton’s lawyers produced a limited batch of emails, some of them involved employees who claimed they had no emails with Secretary Clinton. The FOIA office considered itself unable to compel the employees, and State failed to take any further action to discover if the employees had additional emails that had not yet been produced.
The documents included new details about how Secretary Clinton and her attorneys handled information and classified facilities.
Clinton regularly violated Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) rules by carrying her BlackBerry into the secure area, and also by requiring her Diplomatic Security protective detail agents to hold the BlackBerry in the SCIF, thus requiring them to violate security rules.
Even after the FBI took possession of jump drives and one laptop of Secretary Clinton’s emails from her attorneys on August 6, 2015, the attorneys retained six additional laptops until August 17. One of the laptops was repeatedly used to access the internet even after Secretary Clinton’s emails were on the computer – including the classified ones.
Secretary Clinton’s attorneys acknowledged that some attorneys who viewed the emails did not have security clearances.
Williams and Connolly originally suggested that they had 14 boxes of Clinton emails, but only 12 were picked up, and no one knows what happened to the other two.
where Are we now
Firstly we may just of forgot about Trey..... which we probably shouldn't do according to Dr Dre. (Maybe...subliminally implied.
I am pretty sure him and Chaffetz are not asleep.
The last time a scandal so big hit America was Watergate in 70's Nixon times. It was such a big event theres like 3-6 films about ... the repercussion still ring out through history.
Are we to expect Watergate2 or forgiven by Pardon from Trump or maybe Obama as some rumors suggest...........
The only problem with a Pardon is which bit is she going to be pardoned for.... Benghazi or the security breach..... or the shadow government.
can she be pardoned for all three, or even can she be pardoned before all the destroyed evidence is found?.
The FBI are still under subpoena to release all document they encounter.
The Benghazi report has finished interviewing but still open for filling. I presume it could be updated still.
And the government reform commission have just taken out a Kennedy........... The film about the Kennedy scandal all the kings men linguistically illustrated the final result of all the men around Nixon were taken out, and before impeachment Nixon had to step down.
Could there be more left to come?
if you check the government reform committees website there is a case not yet taken against Hillary Clinton for the conviction of Perjury, which seems to be the attack plan.
Seeing as thats still up, its probably the one to keep an eye on.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Channing Phillips identifying several examples where Secretary Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony before Congress is incompatible with evidence collected during the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) investigation into the Secretary’s private email server.
The letter is in response to a Department of Justice letter sent to Chairmen Chaffetz and Goodlatte last week saying the department will “take appropriate action as necessary” on the Chairmen’s request for an investigation into the matter.
The letter states:
“The evidence collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony, which are described in greater detail below.”
“During a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing on October 22, 2015, Secretary Clinton testified with respect to (1) whether she sent or received emails that were marked classified at the time; (2) whether her attorneys reviewed each of the emails on her personal email system; (3) whether there was one, or more servers that stored work-related emails during her time as Secretary of State; and (4) whether she provided all her work-related emails to the Department of State. “
“Although there may be other aspects of Secretary Clinton’s sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI’s findings, her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence FBI Director James Comey described in his public statement on July 5, 2016 and in testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on July 7, 2016.”
