Senate Republicans Refuse To Confirm Kerry Until Hillary Testifies About Benghazi

 

 

 

 

 

” Isn’t this pushing a jinx?  If Senate Republicans insist on having Hillary Clinton testify before allowing John Kerry’s confirmation to proceed, aren’t they risking a torn ACL or turf toe for the outgoing Secretary of State?

Clinton has pledged to remain in the job until Kerry is confirmed, which Obama said he was confident would happen “quickly.” The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Illness and a concussion has prevented Clinton from appearing thus far.

Clinton promised to appear before Congress at one point, but the State Department backpedaled from that position quickly after it became public.  State then said that Clinton couldn’t testify until after Congress received the report from the Accountability Review Board’s investigation into Benghazi, which they hinted Congress might not see for another 90 days — or possibly never see in its entirety. They got the ARB report last week, at which point State announced the resignations of four officials who never actually resigned at all.  Accountability! “

#Benghazi: Hillary Takes A Spill; Won’t Testify

 

Except Now It Doesn’t

 

” Clinton may really have injured herself, and if that is the case we should cut her some slack. Having said that, this is still unacceptable. Clinton is THE person who should be testifying, not two flunkies under her we’ve never heard of. All of this is nicelytimed to fall apart right before the Christmas holidays.

Eat, drink and be fat and merry Americans… forget all about Secretary of State Clinton who will be resigning and is trying to escape having to testify to 4 Americans murdered by terrorists on her watch.  That’s it, have another eggnog.  Fire up the subpoena machine, Mr. Issa. You will not get her in to testify otherwise. ”
