New emails show Hillary Clinton may have colluded with Robert Menendez during the Benghazi hearing
The House Oversight Committee is asking the Injustice Department to start an investigation into whether or nor Hillary Clinton obstructed justice when she deleted emails from her personal server. I would also suggest the agency look into the destruction of government property because the FBI’s investigation found Hillary Clinton’s staff members beat her old cellphones with a hammer to keep what was contained therein from being made available.
If you are a quarterback for a certain professional football team and you destroy your cellphone during an investigation it makes the news cycle 24 hours a day, yet the mainstream media does not think Hillary Clinton doing the same is newsworthy at all, but I digress…
Anyway, back on point: House Republicans are also promising another round of investigations and if they do start another investigation they need to ask Mrs. Clinton (is it sexist to call her Mrs. Clinton?) if it is true her staff was colluding with the first Benghazi investigation by feeding a Democratic member of the committee questions? Because that is what new emails seem to indicate, here is more:
Newly released emails suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide stage-managed her first hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack by feeding specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
“We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11, and these email from Chris Stevens about moving locations,)” Clinton media gatekeeper Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton the morning of the Jan. 23, 2013 hearing.
That is odd! I thought all emails to Chelsea Clinton were about her impending wedding? (Of course not one of the deleted emails which were recovered has had anything to do with yoga instruction or wedding dresses, isn’t that strange?)
It just so happens that Senator Menendez seems to have complied:
Right out of the gate, the first hearing question from Menendez that day covered both topics referenced by Reines.
Menendez asked for Clinton’s “insights on the decision-making process regarding the location of the Mission.” The senator added, “can you also in your response, you touched upon it in your opening statement, but what actions were you and your staff taking the night of September 11 and into September 12?”
The then-secretary of state had an answer on both fronts. She told the committee that “[Ambassador] Chris [Stevens] was committed to not only being in Benghazi but to the location,” and that on the night of the attack, “I was notified of the attack shortly after 4:00 p.m. Over the following hours, we were in continuous meetings and conversations both within the department with our team in Tripoli, with the interagency and internationally.”
Of course Senator Menendez would never do anything that was not on the level, right? Oh yeah, he is already facing corruption charges on an unrelated issue…
Drip, drip, drip…
