Our consulate in Benghazi was being guarded by a large well armed and very pro-American militia two blocks away. The only reason the terrorists were able to attack without having said milita kill them all was the Republican supported video slandering Muhammad, otherwise they would've attacked long before.

 

The attack lasted 95 MINUTES, thanks to the REPUBLICAN sequester of funds for DOD there were no assets to allow the military to respond - no way to move troops and no way to refuel aircraft, all of which were hundreds of miles away.

 

Republicans are entirely responsible for the 4 dead Americans at Benghazi.

More from the fake news factory, I see.  Please explain how an Australian diplomat having ties to the former POTUS and First Lady has any bearing on this. Would you not EXPECT a diplomat at this level to have ties to them?

BY JOHN SOLOMON AND ALISON SPANN -

 

The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show. 

 

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.  

 

Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia.

The money was initially allocated to the Clinton Foundation but later was routed through an affiliate of the charity known as the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), officials said. Australia was one of four foreign governments to donate more than $25 million to CHAI, records show.

In the years that followed, the project won praise for helping thousands of HIV-infected patients in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, China and Indonesia, but also garnered criticism from auditors about “management weaknesses” and inadequate budget oversight, the memos show.

Democrats accuse the GOP of overreaching, saying Downer’s role in trying to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS shouldn’t be used to question his assistance to the FBI.

 

“The effort to attack the FBI and DOJ as a way of defending the President continues,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel. “Not content to disparage our British allies and one of their former intelligence officers, the majority now seeks to defame our Australian partners as a way of undermining the Russia probe. It will not succeed, but may do lasting damage to our institutions and allies in the process.”

 

 

Nick Merrill, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman, said any effort to connect the 2006 grant with the current Russia investigation was “laughable.”

Craig Minassian, a spokesman for the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, said the focus should be on the foundation’s success helping tens of thousands of AIDS patients.

Its like peeling an onion...

 

 

 

 

 


Here we go again with the far right trying to take people away from the real news to something even by the article they use as support does not back them up. Yes it is like peeling an onion from the far right as the leaders get very desperate in their effort to try and cover up what a total failure Trump is, and how his followers fit what the experts have told us about them.

They use an effort to fight AIDS around the world as something  bad. Read the support article. The same story could be spread about everyone in here who ever gave money to any charity. How stupid do the far right think people are. Well I guess they think everyone is on their level and we know the experts have told us they are uneducated, and easy to lead, plus can not think for themselves. Notice how they use more than one in here. Could be the BOT farm at work.

Here is some real news.

South Korea held a meeting with the North, and it looks like they made some progress in ending the problems there. What it took was for S. Korea to dump Trump and his crew and go do it on their own. You do know that S. Korea has been talking to China about the problem. Could be China will be taking the lead soon  with S. Korea to bring things back to normal. We do know our Top expert on N. Korea quit a few weeks ago. Looks like our guy could not take the Trump nonsense anymore. The results of the meeting shows the world who the child like fool was. Look at DC. Get rid of Trump and progress is made.   Now wounder the far right wants to change the subject.

Would you care to let us in on exactly what those misdeeds are? Aside from merely existing.


"Us" - it was the use of federal agencies in a partisan fashion.


So that means that the interior secretary is a partisan liar and thief who is stealing and selling the properties of the People  of the United States of America for the benefit of trump's dishonest fellow criminally dishonest rightwing kleptocrats...

Got it - when are we going to try them for their crimes?

You are mistaking RWNJ hyperventilations for facts. If not, then please supply some credible source(s) to back up what you say. That's not too much to ask, is it?


Is it not a fact that the DOJ was used to spy on Americans for partisan purposes? No, it is not a fact.

 

Did a political hit piece paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign not get used for that purpose? No, it did not.

 

Was Stzrok not using his position to effect the election? Was a meeting on that subject not held in his boss' office? No.

 

What do you want to do, get into a "dualing sources" battle?

Just a reminder......

 

1.  Critical didn't post what YOU claimed he did.....

 

2.  Nixon was impeached AND removed from office AND was pardoned by another Republican.  "Recent history"....and then you want to go back citing Hilary's supposed scandals of 40 years......LMAO!!!  You-just-can't-make-this-crap-up!!!!!

 

3.  Benghazi?  What law was broken?  If wasn't a scandal.....the scandal is the idiocy of the flock.


Centrist, one small point of clarification.  Nixon never was impeached.  The Republican leadership who cared more about Country than Party (too bad that is no longer the case), went to Nixon and told him he could either resign or they would vote to impeach.  Nixon chose to resign and was technically never impeached.
