Hillary Clinton lied to Darrell Issa’s Oversight Committee in a big way. On top of that she was busy lying to the American People about Benghazi before Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed.
But it doesn’t matter, Hillary hasn’t been married to Slick Willie all these years without learning a thing or two about lying, and making sure you can cover your ass if you get caught..
The Oversight Committee allowed Hillary Clinton to testify without being under oath– according to several reports, this one from Joel Pollack at Breitbart:
Video recordings of Clinton’s Jan. 23 testimony before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee suggest that she was never sworn in. Breitbart News subsequently confirmed with staff on both committees that she did not take an oath to tell “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,” as the three witnesses, all career civil servants, did Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee.
A Senate aide confirmed to Breitbart News Thursday: “We checked with the committee and she wasn’t sworn in.” A House aide indicated that Clinton had not been sworn in, but added that “all witnesses testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, including Secretary Clinton, are under a legal obligation to tell the truth. Any misrepresentation to the Committee in the context of a review or investigation is a violation of law.
More Hillary Misled Congress, But Not Under Oath
The difference is, lying under oath is a much more serious crime, than lying. Additionally the Oversight committee would have to prove that she knew she was lying, and that she intended to mislead the committee in order to convict her. There is now sufficient evidence to prove she knew she was lying – proving intent is another story. It’s highly unlikely she could have told the truth without incriminating herself, so she may have some protection under the Fifth Amendment.
Doug Ross @ Journal has been paying really close attention to the Benghazi affair, and the cover-up that followed. As I mentioned earlier, Hillary was already in full cover-up mode before the shooting stopped. From Doug Ross
8pm, 9/11/12 – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is informed that the consulate in Benghazi had been overrun by a group of AQ-linked terrorists.
10pm, 9/11/12 – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releases a statement blaming an Internet video for the death of Ambassador Stevens and three others.
Excerpt from Doug Ross
that statement was put out before former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods died in Benghazi. Who specifically told Hillary Clinton that there were some people blaming this on inflammatory response to–inflammatory material on the internet? Where did she get that idea at 10 p.m. on September 11th?
In a post today on Shoebat’s site we find out; Anthony, TX (La Tuna): Where TWO of Hillary’s most problematic Filmmakers are locked up .. The two cases do not appear to be directly related, but the other filmmaker appears to have evidence that could send Hillary up the river for something unrelated to Benghazi.
Getting back on topic.
I’m going to echo Doug Ross’ question, where did she get the idea that the video, that virtually no one in the entire world knew existed, was responsible for the attack?
Or better yet, since she already knew the attack had been conducted by terrorists:
How did she find the video, the video no one had ever seen so quickly, and what made her think the attack could be blamed on the video? It’s almost as if the video was already filed under “In Case Of Political Emergency.”
The next question is: why was she concerned about covering her own rear, when she should have screaming at the President and Joint Chiefs to get her people some support. Hillary doesn’t have a reputation for taking no as an answer… I’m not sure where she was the evening of September 11th but she had spent the day in Washington. Things started going bad in Benghazi before the close of business eastern time. If she was still in DC, it wouldn’t have been difficult for her to get to the White House and demand the Pentagon do something, if she wanted…
Instead she was busy making sure her butt was covered… and an obscure film maker, and an even more obscure video got blamed..
AND; She was doing it before Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed
