During a “picturesque Potemkin Village pancake breakfast” with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie in Hollis, New Hampshire, The Ice Cube In Heels feigned indignation [beginning at vid mark 5:45] over a question regarding the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
“Look at the situation they chose to exploit, to go after me for political reasons: the death of four Americans in Benghazi. I knew the ambassador. I identified him. I asked him to go there. I asked the president to nominate him. This committee was set up, as they have admitted, for the purpose of making a partisan political issue out of the deaths of four Americans. I would have never done that,” said The Now-Angry Ice Cube In Heels.
She went on to say, “If I was the president and there were Republicans or Democrats who were thinking about that I would have done everything to shut it down.”
Sounds like she was taking a dig at The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer doesn’t it? What the Ice Cube failed to mention in her outburst was that she failed to protect the very ambassador she “knew” and “identified”. It was she who falsely claimed that a YouTube™ video triggered the attack that killed the ambassador she “knew” and it was she who sent Susan Rice to go on five Sunday talk shows and knowingly lie about the death of the ambassador she “knew”. Oh, and most importantly, she didn’t say a peep about the Select Committee’s discovery of her private email server.
A colossal blunder by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently gave Clinton the opportunity to try the witch hunt card again by claiming that the Benghazi Select Committee had diminished her political ambitions.
In a published report from The Hill, we are told that Democrats on the Benghazi Committee are “now running a protection effort for the former Secretary.” They released portions of a secret transcript containing the testimony of Clinton aide and confidante Cheryl Mills and threatened to release the full transcript via a letter to Chairman Trey Gowdy.
Gowdy spokesman Jamal Ware said of the Democrats’ actions today, “It is one thing to merely sit idly by while others do serious work, it is quite another to attempt to undercut their work with selective leaks in violation of House Rules.”
Ed Klein, author of “Unlikeable: The Problem With Hillary”, wrote that Hillary is vulnerable but is acting as though the trouble she’s in is merely a political smear job by right-wing zealots.
He also notes that a Clinton confidante of 30 years has repeatedly advised her that “this FBI email investigation could go in a very dangerous direction very quickly” and that she should “lawyer up.” “There is going to be blood in the water. The investigators are looking for weak links to get to the bottom of what went on with Hillary’s national security emails and I’m afraid they will find it.”
Ambassador Chris Stevens could not be reached for comment.
