Report: Blumenthal’s Benghazi Emails Withheld from Select Committee

Emails showing Democratic operative Sid Blumenthal directing public relations efforts for Hillary Clinton in the wake of the 2012 Benghazi attacks were withheld from a select committee investigating the attacks,Politico reported on Wednesday.

Blumenthal sent four posts from the Democratic research outfit Media Matters to Clinton on October 10, 2012, emails show. Blumenthal was on Media Matters’ payroll at the time, Politico reported, receiving about $10,000 a month from the group in addition to similar compensation from the Clinton Foundation.

“Got all this done,” Blumenthal wrote in the Oct. 10, 2012, email to Clinton, according to the description of the message. “Complete refutation on Libya smear. Philippe can circulate these links. Sid”.

Blumenthal was referring to four posts by Media Matters — a left-leaning, pro-Clinton group — that blasted the Benghazi responses from then-GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other Republicans, which he pasted in the body of the email. Blumenthal, a Clinton ally, is close to the group’s founder David Brock, another Clinton confidant — and has advised the organization, and others like it, on and off over the past few years.

“Philippe” likely refers to Clinton’s top spokesperson, Philippe Reines.

According to a separate Politico story, “the emails were not included in documents originally turned over by the State Department. The Select Committee on Benghazi obtained the emails through subpoena.”

Professional politicians are using government money (our tax dollars), and tax-free money from tax exempt foundations and corporations to enrich themselves, while they lie to and cheat the American public.

Talk ,Talk , Talk but never any action??? We have a nation of people that are supposed to live by the law of the land . We have W.D.C. that  is  exempt of the law.? Congress allowed this to happen and we must remove them to restore L&O.  The people have surrendered our freedom and control to a GOV. that has learned to forget the very people that trusted them to uphold the laws?

The revulsion I have for this government reached a high point when I realized the RepubliCrats are too damned cowardly and pathetic to say a word about this, let alone do anything about this.

OScumBag and the Bitcharry will get clean away with arranging the murder of Americans in Benghazi.

George,  you are exactly right.  OUR country has become the corrupt federal government (all of it) and we AMERICANS.

The level of corruption in Washington is astonishing.

We the People should have REVOLTED long ago.

Seeing that all relevant Emails were subpoenaed by Congress and requested by the State Department,  the discovery of these Emails should result in an OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE or Contempt Of Congress Charge... for failing to comply with the Congressional subpoena and the State Department's investigation. 

However, it is obvious that neither will happen... as the Congressional Leadership will not press their subpoena and the DOJ will never indict Hillary, even if she were caught red handed committing murder... remember Vince Foster?

What a shock to my system - - - this administration not wanting to turn-over documents without a subpoena . . . . . . . NOT!!!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
