    ONE YEAR LATE: State Dept Turns over 1,100 Pages of BENGHAZI Records

    ONE YEAR LATE: State Dept Turns over 1,100 Pages of BENGHAZI Records

    At this point, what difference does it make?

    A year after the House Select Committee on Benghazi made its initial request, the State Department finally handed over 1,100 pages of records.

    These records contain include files, “stored on network folders used by senior employees within the Office of the Secretary, and emails from Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin, Susan Rice, and Patrick Kennedy,” according to the Select Committee.

    Records received Friday were in response to requests made by the committee in November of 2014. When the requests were unanswered, subpoena’s were issued in March of 2015.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, Committee Chairman said:

    “It is deplorable that it took over a year for these records to be produced to our committee, and that our Democrat colleagues never lifted a finger to help us get them. Shame on them and everyone else who has demanded this committee to give up before gathering all of the facts. This investigation is about a terrorist attack that killed four Americans, and it could have been completed a lot sooner if the administration had not delayed and delayed and delayed at every turn. For example, the committee still does not have records we requested over a year ago, and we are still waiting for some witnesses to be made available for interviews. As soon as possible, we will release our report and interview transcripts so everyone can see the evidence for themselves, and I’m confident the value and fairness of our investigation will then be abundantly clear to everyone.”

    As to the point of the investigation:

    This was never an investigation. It is just the republican led kabuki dance to fool the rubes.

      Agreed.

      If they had started holding people in contempt ( jail ), those records would have shown up quickly.

      And you know this stalling has to have originated from the White House.

        Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt. Both civil and criminal,didn’t matter to the corrupt administration.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder#Contempt_of_Congress
        On June 20, 2012, the Oversight Committee voted 23–17 along party lines to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for not releasing documents the committee had requested.

        On June 28, 2012, Holder became the first U.S. Attorney General in history to be held in both criminal[126] and civil[127] contempt. He was held, by a bipartisan vote,[128] in contempt by the House of Representatives in a 255–67 vote, with 17 Democrats voting for the measure, 2 Republicans voting against the measure.[128] The remaining Democrats refused to vote and marched out of the House, led by Nancy Pelosi, as a means of protesting the actions of Republicans. Holder responded to the vote, describing it as “the regrettable culmination of what became a misguided and politically motivated investigation in an election year.”

    One can only imagine if certain parties behind the scenes are using the threat of indictment to wangle deals for their personal advancement. If so, I hope Comey is torturing the Obama/Clinton admin with it.
