District judge orders State Department to release Clinton, White House emails from Benghazi attack

Reps. Jordan, Pompeo: ‘The administration misled the public about the events in Benghazi’

House Benghazi Committee members Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) today released an addendum to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s final report, as the two congressman believe the report released isn’t as hard-hitting as it ought to be. “Officials at the State Department, including Secretary Clinton, learned almost in real time that the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. With the presidential election just 56 days away, rather than tell the American people the truth and increase the risk of losing an election, the administration told one story privately and a different story publicly. They publicly blamed ...

Tea Party Patriots: It is up to the American people to hold Sec. Clinton accountable after the release of Benghazi report

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today after the House Select Committee on Benghazi released their final report on the terror attack in Benghazi. “Thanks to the House Select Committee on Benghazi — and especially committee members Mike Pompeo and Jim Jordan — we now have confirmation that senior Executive Branch officials in charge of the response to that attacks on the Benghazi compound were more concerned about optics and spin than they were about doing what they could to save their colleagues under fire. We have confirmation that despite orders from the Secretary of ...

Benghazi committee members critical of investigation costs line staffers’ pockets with bonuses

Democrats on the bipartisan House committee investigating the terror attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead have repeatedly attacked House Republicans over the costliness of the investigation yet have given staff tens of thousands of dollars in bonuses. Fox News has the details: According to publicly available reports, a total of $33,600 was given to six Democratic staffers at the end of 2014 and 2015. While the bonuses make up only a fraction of the panel's total expenses to date, critics suggested they undermine the minority members' complaints about the budget. "This is the height of hypocrisy,” Lisa Boothe, a Republican ...

The Blaze: National debt just rounded $19 trillion

The U.S. national debt Friday rounded the corner on $19 trillion for the first time in our nation’s history. The Blaze has the scoop: After $18 trillion on Dec. 15, 2014, it took a 13 months for the debt to reach the new threshold, which is a slightly quicker climb in debt from years past. It took about 14 months for the debt to reach $16, $17 and $18 trillion. Though the national debt has been a hot-button issue for Republicans, and reduction in spending has been a cornerstone of many GOP presidential candidates’ campaigns, spending does not seem to be on the decline. In fact, over the last few years, the federal government has been free ...

Democrats and the Benghazi Committee

Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is scheduled to appear before House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack during the week of May 18. But now, it seems, that appearance may have to be postponed. What’s the holdup you ask? According to committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, his panel has yet to be given access to relevant State Department emails and is, therefore, not sufficiently prepared to question the former Secretary of State. Gowdy has previously hammered the Obama Administration and its refusal to cooperate with the Benghazi committee in a timely manner. Dozens of subpoena requests are still unanswered. It’s typical ...

What Hillary’s emails have to do with Benghazi

Rep. Trey Gowdy, who’s been leading the Congressional investigation into the Benghazi attack, said over the weekend [1] that he’s not afraid to call Hillary Clinton back for questioning. As Secretary of State, we now know, Clinton conducted her business on a private email server, using it to send and store government correspondence. That correspondence could provide pivotal clues into what happened the night of the terrorist attack and the following days, whether Clinton wants it to or not. “I think an eminently reasonable alternative is for her to turn over that server to an independent, neutral party,” Gowdy to the Washington Examiner. ...
