To Answer Benghazi Questions
Obama and the House Select Committee on Benghazi are at a stand-off over whether the President should answer a series of questions about the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead.
Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, blasted the committee for sending the president a list of questions about the attack — an inquiry the administration deemed inappropriate and a partisan attempt to frame Obama as uncooperative.
Eggleston has encouraged Obama not to answer the committee’s questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” according a letter sent Saturday to Chairman Trey Gowdy.
“If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” the letter reads.
As secretary of state during the Benghazi attack, Crooked Hillary is taking the brunt of the blame and rightly so.
She conducted herself badly when she was in charge of the State Department, including setting up her own illegal and insecure private email servers, and she has behaved badly since she has left that office particularly in regard to the relatives of those murdered at Benghazi.
But Obama’s hands are not clean either. He is implicated in the Benghazi debacle just as he is implicated in the email scandal. He wants everyone to think that he is too high and mighty to answer questions from a mere Congressman like Gowdy, but the real reason is he is scared. Just as he was scared of anyone looking at his records which he had sealed from public scrutiny.
The question everyone should be asking is simply, why all the hiding if there is nothing to hide?
