House Democrats on the Benghazi Select Committee plan to address lingering public questions surrounding that attack — and drown out any potential leaks with a flood of information — with a new Web site Tuesday, as that panel prepares to meet publicly for the first time.
Democrats are looking to influence the direction and tone of the committee, which will focus its first open hearing Wednesday on a review board the State Department created after the attack to examine the government’s security systems abroad.
“It is critical that the Select Committee make full use of the extensive investigations that have already been completed—which are compiled here—to define its scope, avoid duplication, and conserve taxpayer dollars to help improve the security of U.S. facilities and personnel around the world,” House Democrats on the committee wrote in an executive summary of the compendium they are releasing in conjunction with the site.
So Democrats are actually so concerned about taxpayer dollars that they’ve unveiled a taxpayer-funded website to drown out Republicans actually doing their jobs. Got it.
Curiously absent from the Democrat misinformation site is this bombshell report from Monday.
As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is the first time Maxwell has publicly come forward with the story.
At the time, Maxwell was a leader in the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, which was charged with collecting emails and documents relevant to the Benghazi probe.
An obvious cover-up like this would normally merit saturation coverage from the media, but they’ve been absent on this story for two years. Yet you can be assured they’ll happily regurgitate the Democrat propaganda throughout the hearings.
