Ventrell: Secretary Clinton “has committed to being fully transparent with the Congress”
First it was a reported stomach virus that caused Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to forego a planned overseas trip to North Africa and the Persian Gulf.
Most recently, she fainted and has been diagnosed with a concussion suffered in the accompanying fall, causing her to work from home in the coming week.
It’s clearly a matter of whatever it takes to keep her from testifying as scheduled at the congressional hearings coming up on Thursday into the September 11, 2012 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were assassinated, including U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens. The ensuing shameful Obama administration cover-up is being investigated.
During Friday’s daily press briefing, Patrick Ventrell, acting deputy spokesperson, danced around the issue of Clinton’s upcoming testimony, claiming she “has committed to being fully transparent with the Congress.”
But the House Foreign Affairs Committee says Clinton would no longer give scheduled testimony at its hearing on Libya. She will be replaced by two Senior State Department officials.
Her aides informed senate committee chairman, John Kerry about her ill health, and his deep concern for her was evident as he “insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear” as planned. Radical leftist Kerry is expected to be nominated by Obama to succeed Clinton. And already Arizona’s infamous aisle-crossing “maverick” John McCain has taken to sycophantically addressing him as “Mr. Secretary.”
It’s too bad Hillary’s opting out of this opportunity to do a reprise of the defense she used ad infinitum regarding her involvement in the Whitewater scandal. Those missing files from her years at the Rose Law firm, that mysteriously turned up in the same White House where she and Slick Willy were residing, also created a problematic predicament for Hillary. She “solved” it by repeatedly testifying, “I’m sorry, I don’t remember.”
It’s worth reviewing the highlights of the Obama administration’s misinformation campaign intended to distract the American people from the truth of the September 11, 2012 embassy massacre.
