'WHY HAVE THE BENGHAZI HEARINGS BEEN GOING ON SO LONG?' SOME ASK
Democrats are angry that Hillary Clinton continues to get raked on the coals by the Republicans, as she will be grilled by Congress this Thursday.
Or, why is it even going on at all? Is it really just a witch hunt to get Hillary?
How quickly we forget.
The Benghazi Select Committee was formed over a year ago in May, 2014, before the 2016 election got under way. Proceedings were expected to be wrapped up in a matter of months, like most similar committees. Instead it has gone on even longer than Watergate Hearings, which were among the longest ever.
Why so long?
Because, the committee has been stonewalled time and again by the State Department and
Administration from getting records and data they requested, reports Committee chairman Trey
Now that they finally got most of the requested emails from Hillary's private server it will
take time to go through all those and deal with the issues that may arise from them.
Why weren't the previous several investigations enough?
They were basically Democratic 'in-house' committees, such as the ARB, which we now
learn didn't call on key people on their own side. Nor, did they have the key emails
to work with.
At least the Select Committee includes Democrats.
If nothing else, with the creation of the Select Committee we have uncovered important
information about potential serious, even possible treasonous actions by former State Department head Hillary Clinton
and her emails, which may or may not have been hacked by foreign countries. We learned
that she broke Administration laws by having a computer 'private server.'
Really a Witch Hunt to knock Hillary from her Presidential bid?
If this were true, one would think Hillary and company would have gladly turned over
requested documents long ago before things got to this point. If she had cooperated from
the beginning she may not have even been asked to turn over her emails, let alone the
private server - of which she did everything possible to obfuscate.
They say lying and obfuscating will catch up in the end. So far, it looks like this could happen
to 'poor' Hillary.
