Obama Refuses to Answer Benghazi Questions



Before you read the story below I thought I would help sift the lies from the truth.


This comes from an administration who tried to change history by redacting any reference to Islamic terrorism from the 911 call in Orlando.

"It was the video" was nothing more than a ruse to protect his re-election prospects and the Muslim killers. You are a complete fool if you believe otherwise. If he had the audacity to call Ft Hood workplace violence and change the 911 call before your very eyes what do you think he's capable of doing behind you back?


And when it comes to Killary...

Republicans should play the hell out of this.

Democrats’ Benghazi Report Mentions Donald Trump 23 Times For Some Reason

How could this be you say...he had absolutely nothing to do with it?

He did if you're the MSM!

The White House accused Republicans of peddling 'wild conspiracy theories' about the Benghazi terrorist attack on Monday. 

A House committee charged with investigating the 2012 assault on the U.S. consulate in Libya asked President Barack Obama to answer a list of questions testing his knowledge about the onslaught.

The president's chief counsel refused, saying in a letter to the committee's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, that Republicans raised 'serious questions about the legitimacy' of their investigation with the inquiry.

Gowdy's committee responded negatively, setting off a spokesman for the president in a briefing with reporters today.

'Republicans have been investigating this exhaustively, and with each turn of the crank, they are unable to prove to the wild conspiracy theories they have been proffering for years,' said White House official Eric Schultz said.

'So it’s not surprising to me that Republicans want to look at every possible crevice for a new conspiracy,' he stated. 'Unfortunately, when they do so, they come up with nothing.'

White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in the letter to the committee that Obama would not answer their questions, some of which the White House says legislators asked already knew the answer to.

Eggleston posted in the letter, first reported by Politico, 'If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts.' 

Eggleston advised the president not to talk to lawmakers for their probe, having already submitted a detailed readout of the president's movements the night of the September 12, 2012 assault.

His staff also answered availed itself to the committee and answered specific questions themselves.

White House lawyers asserted there was no evidence that Obama ordered the National Security Council 'to delay taking action' the night of the battle. 

The president told his secretary of defense to 'immediately ordered the military to deploy all available assets,' a May 11 letter to the committee said.

'Any claim that the president was not fully engaged and informed the night of the attacks and any doubt about his direction that any and all action be taken to assist our people under attack are unfounded and belied by the facts,' the letter read.

Gowdy, who had told the White House all along that he planned to send the president a series of written questions, was not satisfied and continued to pursue a response directly from Obama.

The president's lawyer declined the request, upsetting House Republicans. They're accusing Obama of stonewalling their probe.

A spokesman for the committee in chastised Obama in a statement sent to Politico for taking time last week to talk to New York Yankee Derek Jeter but not lawmakers. 

'It's no surprise President Obama would rather take questions from Derek Jeter than answer questions for the American people about the Benghazi terrorist attacks,' Jamal Ware said, 'which followed what he himself has called his worst mistake — failing to plan for what happened after the State Department pushed U.S. intervention in Libya.'

Ware said the White House's 'fictional narrative' about the reasons it would not submit answers to the House committee's questions is just 'the latest chapter of the story it has been spinning since 2012.'

Four Americans died in the assault, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. 

The special committee on Benghazi has been looking into the terrorist attack for more than two years, since May of 2014.



'I know Republicans don’t want to believe that photo,' he said, referencing a picture the White House released four months after the attack of Obama being briefing in the Oval. 'Maybe they think it’s photoshopped, maybe they think it was faked. But it is 100 percent authentic'




Republicans on the committee say they questions they tried to ask Obama are not duplicate and have not received a definite response. 

For instance, the White House said Obama was briefed on the attack at 5 pm Eastern. It did not say when he first became aware of the violence, which began at approximately 3:42 pm.

It's due to issue its final report soon, possibly before the Republican and Democratic National Conventions in July.

House Democrats on the committee today released a minority report to counter the official review, which they expect to be critical of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president. 

'We have been hampered in our work by the ongoing Republican obsession with conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality,' the committee's Democrats said in their document. 'Rather than reject these conspiracy theories in the absence of evidence - or in the face of hard facts --Select Committee Republicans embraced them and turned them into a political crusade.'

Democrats said they wanted to put those 'conspiracy theories' to bed 'once and for all and return the focus to where it belongs—on the goal of improving the security of Americans serving abroad.'

The president's spokesman made a similar argument today.

'I know Republicans don’t want to believe that photo,' he said, referencing a picture the White House released four months after the attack of Obama being briefing in the Oval.

'Maybe they think it’s photoshopped, maybe they think it was faked. But it is 100 percent authentic.'
