Impeachment is a political process.
Washington DC takes our tax money and spends it according to how we direct; that’s why they’re called representatives.
So when you have an administration that is proved to have intentionally lied why is that not sufficient cause to remove all of the responsible parties — including the President?
A targeting memo sent to the State Department by the Defense Department’s Africa Command two days after the Benghazi attack listed 11 suspects with ties to Al Qaeda and other groups, counter-terrorism and congressional sources confirmed to Fox News.
This is significant because it arrived two days before then-UN ambassador Susan Rice appeared on television shows blaming the assault on an inflammatory video. It also came nearly a day before presidential aide Ben Rhodes sent an email also suggesting the video – and not a policy failure – was to blame for the Sep, 11, 2012 attack that claimed four American lives.
In other words the DOD and State Department — that is, the Administration – knew full well that Benghazi was an Al Qaeda attack before anyone went on TeeVee and blamed it on “an evil video” produced by someone in the US.
That wasn’t an error in analysis, it was a lie.
In her new book, “Hard Choices,” then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed the administration made new information available as soon as it was received.
“Every step of the way, whenever something new was learned, it was quickly shared with Congress and the American people,” she wrote. “There is a difference between getting something wrong, and committing wrong.”
That’s a lie too.
Hillary ought to be barred on a permanent basis from ever serving in public office — anywhere and everywhere.
She, like her husband, simply are incapable of telling the truth.
