Washington (CNN) - A congressional committee on Tuesday subpoenaed documents and communications from current and former top State Department officials related to the development of "talking points" used by the Obama administration to explain the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, last September.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sought information from 10 people, including the agency's No. 2 official, the top aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the department's former spokeswoman, the panel's chairman, Darrell Issa, said in a statement.
THe GOP should be called the ABG party – Anything but govern. They try awfully hard to do anything except passing laws and legislation for the American people (which is why they were elected). 2014 can not come soon enough.
Darrell Issa doing what he loves the most: slandering people at taxpayer's expense.
What else is he looking for that really would make a difference? Could there really be a smoking gun that points to a mistake? How is he going to know that there isn't something that is left behind? Maybe Issa should run for president after all of this and say that he brought the administration to "justice."
In all honesty, I really don't think Mr. Issa is quite as important as he thinks he is.
Still no investigation into how to prevent it from ever happening again? Yeah. Way to focus on the important stuff. Let's just keep rehashing this with the same exact results. Good call.
LOL! We all find out that the GOP/Teatrolls leaked their falsified NOTES about the emails and that John Karl published what he saw in the NOTES while claiming he saw the actual emails, so the response from the GOP/Teatrolls is simple:
1. Claim more docs exist and that the 25,000+ pages of docs produced is somehow a refusal to cooperate.
2. They don't exist so they're not produced and the response is "we don't have anything else."
3. Howl at the moon about a massive conspiracy to "cover up" all those docs.
4. Watch poll numbers remain unchanged...again.
5. Propose more voter suppression legislation.
So, Issa continues his witch hunt... I thought this was a news site? This McCarthyesque congressman (who everyone should google- he's not exactly 'scandal free' himself) obviously is trying t omake a name for himself as some sort of 'watchdog' for the people. Funny we never hear about his 'investigations' into anyone without a 'D' behind their name.
Still on your witch hunt I see Issa. How pathetic! How about you subpoena Dick Cheney for a start.
This is a giant admission by Issa and the GOP/Teatrolls that the emails they previously claimed were essentially "smoking guns" proving there was a "cover up" don't prove squat. He's trying to re-open the fishing expedition in order to manufacture more claims of a refusal to cooperate, despite production of 25,000 pages AND making the "smoking gun" emails public, all so the GOP/Teatrolls can continue their baseless fantasy that they've got Obama on the ropes and impeachment is just around the corner. In other words, Issa recognizes it's all a bit dry now and that the Teatrolls' delusion-circle-jerk needs some lube.
It sure would be nice if we can sue Issa for wasting taxpayer money.
Who's next? The Freemasons? Does Issa want to know what is on the back of the Declaration? Does this mean that after viewing over 25,000 pages of documents, the GOP still cannot come up with evidence to support their narrative? What does that suggest to people? Desperation, stupidity, or both?
it sucks when your ship is sinking and the sheep are still playing the violin.
You guys are like the musicians on the Titanic. You can see the ship sinking but feel it's better to go down along with it.
Issa like most republicans, spend their days ignoring facts, repealing the ACA, voting against women's rights, and making sure our recovery from the great republican recession will be slow.
I can't believe we actually pay these people for wasting our time and money. Why doesn't somebody throw a bucket of water over this self serving moron and see if he melts.
wonder how many of you know what the COG papers are. This was first
discovered during Regan and the Iran contra affair. These papers are the
White House to siege total dictatorial powers in case of National
Emergency. This is to be done without congress or the Senate approval.
And one other fact why is Obama not even letting the congress or senate
see them. This seems odd but they were both told they would be out of
Issa is the little special needs kid in the corner with the duntz hat on spitting spitballs at the window hoping it sticks.
DOW closes at another record high. Consumer confidence reaches 5 year high. [Insert plenty of other good news]. At least we know what the GOP/Teatrolls are trying to distract from.
when is he going to start to investigate mccain for trying to sell arms to terrorist
Repubs. should leave Benghazi alone; it reminds Americans about Bush/Cheney being asleep at the wheel for the REAL 9/11. Besides, Repubs. can really nail Hillary on VINCE FOSTER !!
Somehow Republicans have convinced themselves that the American people are not hearing their message. They're convinced that if people would LISTEN to them, then people would join them.
I don't think they'll ever understand that The People have been listening to the Republicans' message. Republicans cannot accept the fact that The People do not like the message, nor their messengers.
Whatever happened to 'job, jobs, jobs"? Cut spending? Balancing the budget? Economic recovery? Tax cuts?
Trust me, folks. They haven't forgotten. They're hoping that you've forgotten about stuff like the doomsday Ryan Plan.
I am belived that eric holder is lied hide his story about leak but presdient obama was fault lrak at white house
enough democrat stone walling and cover up. let the subpeonas start flowing. throw them in jail if you have to.
So here's another step-by-step instruction manual:
1. Leak falsified notes on Banghazi emails to the press in order to bolster claims that a massive witch-hunt-style investigation, complete with days and days of testimony, 20+ classified debriefings, 25,000 pages of docs produced and even the emails you falsified being made public, revealing that you falsified them in order to trump up your allegations with the help of the MSM.
2. Accuse the other side of perjuring themselves when you can't prove any real wrong-doing.
