The Benghazi attack happened a few months before the 2012 Election. Now four years later, with a few months left in his term, the administration continues to run out the clock on the Select Committees investigation. We still don’t know what Obama was doing or what exactly Hillary did.
Trey Gowdy Levels Criticism Against Obama’s State Department
“Its justifications…are imaginary.” – Western Journalism
The Committee, chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., has been seeking emails and records from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her senior staff at the State Department for over one year, including the findings of an Accountability Review Board but has yet to receive anything substantial.
“Whatever the administration is hiding, its justifications for doing so are imaginary and appear to be invented for the sake of convenience. That’s not how complying with a congressional subpoena works, and it’s well past time the department stops stonewalling,” he said.
“There is only one reason why these facts are now available to the American people: thorough congressional oversight, including the Select Committee on Benghazi’s insistence that any truly comprehensive review of what happened before, during, and after the 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya must include public records from the former Secretary of State and her senior staff,” said Gowdy.
“If anyone wonders why the investigation is not yet complete, the malfeasance and numerous problems identified in this report are Exhibit A, and prove the committee has faced serial delays from Day One at the hands of public officials who sought to avoid transparency and accountability,” added Gowdy.
We’re set to go into another election, four years later, without critical answers. At this point, to expect the answers or accountability from Obama’s administration would require the willing suspension of disbelief.
Maybe we will not get the answers but only an explanation as to why we didn’t get the answers or accountability.
