Clinton's Benghazi Email Circus

By A.P. Dil­lon

Judi­cial Watch has been instru­men­tal in fol­low­ing the paper trail with regards to the Beng­hazi scan­dal. Accord­ing to Judi­cial Watch this week, “The new doc­u­ments show that the Obama admin­is­tra­tion engaged domes­tic and for­eign Islamist groups and for­eign nation­als to push the Inter­net video nar­ra­tive.

Judi­cial Watch issued a state­ment this week with an update on the response to Beng­hazi orig­i­nally given by for­mer Sec­re­tary of State and cur­rent Pres­i­den­tial Can­di­date, Hillary Clinton:

(Wash­ing­ton, DC) – Judi­cial Watch today released new State Depart­ment doc­u­ments show­ing that Hillary Clin­ton and the State Department’s response to the Beng­hazi attack was imme­di­ately deter­mined by top Obama White House offi­cials, par­tic­u­larly Ben Rhodes, then-​White House deputy strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tions adviser, and Bernadette Mee­han, a spokesper­son for the National Secu­rity Coun­cil. The new doc­u­ments were forced from the U.S. State Depart­ment under court order in a Judi­cial Watch Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion Act (FOIA) law­suit (Judi­cial Watch v. U.S. Depart­ment of State (No. 1:14-cv-01511)).

An email from Mee­han, sent at 10:15 p.m. on Sep­tem­ber 11 to Rhodes, Nuland, Sul­li­van, Kennedy and Clin­ton aide Philippe Reines, fur­ther con­firms the White House approval of Hillary Clinton’s state­ment tying the Beng­hazi ter­ror­ist attack to an Inter­net video: “All, the Depart­ment of State just released the fol­low­ing state­ment. Per Ben [Rhodes’] email below, this should be the USG com­ment for the night.”

Judi­cial Watch has pointed to Ben Rhodes as being the White House epi­cen­ter of the Beng­hazi talk­ing point that blamed a YouTube video for the attack. The emails turned over by Blu­men­thal show that the talk­ing point came from him and that Clin­ton ran with it.

Remem­ber, Rhodes’s brother is Pres­i­dent of CBS news. CBS ran a story on Beng­hazi star­ring Lara Logan instead of Sharyl Attkisson who had been lead­ing report­ing on the attack. The report that aired star­ring Logan was which was “flawed” seem­ingly because the infor­ma­tion dif­fered from ‘offi­cial sources’ like the White House and State Depart­ment. CBS let Logan go not long after. Hard to see that turn of events as a coincidence.

Also this month, it became appar­ent that Hillary Clin­ton did not turn over all the Beng­hazi emails to the State Depart­ment. This infor­ma­tion came to light as 15 emails from Clinton’s friend and adviser, Syd­ney Blu­men­thal, were not in the batch of emails given to the State Depart­ment by Clin­ton. Remem­ber – Clin­ton ‘wiped’ her own pri­vate server.

Politico reports Blu­men­thal is all over Clinton’s emails on a wide range of top­ics and allegedly edited one of her speeches. Politico also has copies of the emails. The State Depart­ment is also retroac­tively clas­si­fy­ing some of the emails. What a circus.

Becky Ger­rit­son of the Wetumpka Tea Party noted that the per­son in charge of pick­ing through and turn­ing over the Beng­hazi emails is the same indi­vid­ual who was involved in and was in charge of turn­ing over emails to Con­gress in the IRS Tea party tar­get­ing scan­dal. That woman is Cather­ine Duval.

As of this June, it has been deter­mined that over 24,000 emails are still miss­ing from Lois Lerner in the IRS Tea Party tar­get­ing scan­dal. Given Clinton’s server wip­ing and Cather­ine Duval being in charge, the fate of the Beng­hazi emails might be the same.

Judicial Watch has been instrumental in following the paper trail with regards to the Benghazi scandal. According to Judicial Watch this week, “The new documents show that the Obama administration engaged domestic and foreign Islamist groups and foreign nationals to push the Internet video narrative.

Judicial Watch issued a statement this week with an update on the response to Benghazi originally given by former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton:

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents showing that Hillary Clinton and the State Department’s response to the Benghazi attack was immediately determined by top Obama White House officials, particularly Ben Rhodes, then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser, and Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the National Security Council.  The new documents were forced from the U.S. State Department under court order in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01511)).

An email from Meehan, sent at 10:15 p.m. on September 11 to Rhodes, Nuland, Sullivan, Kennedy and Clinton aide Philippe Reines, further confirms the White House approval of Hillary Clinton’s statement tying the Benghazi terrorist attack to an Internet video: “All, the Department of State just released the following statement. Per Ben [Rhodes’] email below, this should be the USG comment for the night.”

Judicial Watch has pointed to Ben Rhodes as being the White House epicenter of the Benghazi talking point that blamed a YouTube video for the attack. The emails turned over by Blumenthal show that the talking point came from him and that Clinton ran with it.

Remember, Rhodes’s brother is President of CBS news. CBS ran a story on Benghazi starring Lara Logan instead of Sharyl Attkisson who had been leading reporting on the attack. The report that aired starring Logan was which was “flawed” seemingly because the information differed from ‘official sources’ like the White House and State Department. CBS let Logan go not long after. Hard to see that turn of events as a coincidence.

Also this month, it became apparent that Hillary Clinton did not turn over all the Benghazi emails to the State Department.  This information came to light as 15 emails from Clinton’s friend and adviser, Sydney Blumenthal, were not in the batch of emails given to the State Department by Clinton. Remember — Clinton ‘wiped’ her  own private server.

Politico reports Blumenthal is all over Clinton’s emails on a wide range of topics and allegedly edited one of her speeches. Politico also has copies of the emails. The State Department is also retroactively classifying some of the emails. What a circus.

Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party noted that the person in charge of picking through and turning over the Benghazi emails is the same individual who was involved in and was in charge of turning over emails to Congress in the IRS Tea party targeting scandal. That woman is Catherine Duval.

As of this June, it has been determined that over 24,000 emails are still missing from Lois Lerner in the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. Given Clinton’s server wiping and Catherine Duval being in charge, the fate of the Benghazi emails might be the same.
