Rep Gowdy: Either Petraeus Will
Come and Testify to Congress
Or He Will Be Subpoenaed

Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/10/2012 7:56:51 PM

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) “The fact that he’s resigned and had an affair has nothing to do with whether he will be subpoenaed to Congress. I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four star general and a former CIA director. I would hope he would come voluntarily but if he won’t he will be subpoenaed. And none of what happened today is an offense to a subpoena… He’s either a witness in our case in chief or he’s gonna be a rebuttal witness if Susan Rice and others blame him for their failure of intelligence and failure of information.

100% correct. His testimony is an integral part of the investigation, irregardless of an affair. Since when has being caught having an affair exempted someone from testifying? The American People will not stand for this.

With this administration, DOJ, SOS, complicit House and Senate Dems and spineless girlie-men Repubs, this ain´t going no where. He will retire in reletive luxury with a ginormous pension from military and the fed. govn´t, plus all of the perks that go with being a general.

The corruption and cover up of this administration in countless of criminal conduct out does the corruption in South and Central America and Africa combined.

Or what? Huh? What are you going to do cry? All he has to say is that it is an issue of national security and he cannot talk about it in any capacity because .... wait for it .... he has been debriefed and no long has any security clearance. Neat how that works. And if you think that spineless, oversized emo oompaloompa Boehner has that testicular fortitude to do anything but cry, you´ve been into the Obama stash. So just shut your piehole and be and good little beltway parasite.

Have no idea what #12 just said. Petraeus is under no obligation to protect Obama and Co. and stating facts on who said or did what regarding sending help to Benghazi doesn´t break any security. It might even get Patraeus off the hook.

I have posted previously that the deal is done between Petraeus and President Zero.
Petraeus will take the bullet for Benghazi, and Zero will give him a presidential pardon for any crimes that may have been committed.
He is the firewall for Zero, and Hillary may have outed Petraeus. She never did like him. Remember the senate hearing? "suspension of disbelief" which was essentially calling Petraeus a liar?
That was hillary in action.

My take on this...He gets subpoenad,gets before congress and protects Obama,he becomes a hero for the left.He will be forgiven for the affair,even lauded as courageous and goes on the MSM as their new darling.He portrays the Republicans as evil and politicizing the death of the ambassador.The left will somehow skillfully meld the affair into the hearings and presto! Those republicans are at again,recalling Clinton and K Starr.

The left will masterfully juxtapose this against the so called fiscal cliff and portray the republicans as putting politics first and not the country.Obama´s answer to all these,even if Petraeus nails him is.."I need to get back to work for the people" now excuse me.

This whole situation is weird. We get this announcement out of the blue that Gen. Petraeus is resigning due to an affair with his biographer, but in true Øbama Regime fashion the news is announced on a Friday afternoon news dump before the weekend. Øbama seems to have some kind of weird control over anyone who might thwart his plans. First we had the traitor Justice Roberts turn into a rabid Liberal supporting Øbamacare, then we have Chris Christie hugging and kissing Øbama in front of all the cameras right before the election. Don´t count on Petraeus saying anything that would point to any wrongdoing by pea-brain Barry.
Petraeus seems to have drunk a couple of gallons of Øbama koolaid recently. He´ll keep mum on what really went down in Benghazi. I´m waiting for crying-man Boehner to pull a Justice Roberts any minute now when it comes to new taxes. Isn´t Kabuki theater wonderful?

Gowdy should be a rising star in the GOP.But Boehner is a goodole boy network type and will give chairmanships to to dunces like Buck McKeon(sp?) and the other guy from Mich.,can´t think of his name off hand.

My guess is Boehner would have to approve calling the general in any form and he wouldn´t dare.

This is very simple to me.

He will be asked questions while under oath. If he refuses citing "national security", he will be required to testify in private session. If he refuses he will be cited for contempt and sent to prison.

Yes, you send a 4-star to prison for contempt when he´s guilty of it. Yes you do.

It´s one thing to cheat on your wife or husband.
But QUITE another for an American general to knowingly abandon his men to their doom and then avoid all questions. He should be stripped of rank, dishonorably discharged, and have all retirement benefits withdrawn.

This means nothing. Boehner already had a conference call reported in detail by the NY Times to subdued GOP after the election. Boehner told the GOP they lost the election badly and now must get along with Obama. The GOP had no intention whatever that Obama admin. would be punished for mass murders in Fast and Furious--none. An occasional sound bite is thrown to us as a crumb. The GOP got all they wanted which was an excuse to tell the Silent Majority to go back to being Silent. These men are beneath contempt to me.

I´m still inclined to believe -- Petraeus was issued an ultimatum by obama. Shut up -- or -- we´ll leak the affair to my media pals...

Petraeus said -- the "F U" words and went to the media himself. Good military move -- when cornered -- go on the offensive.... Right Sarah?????

I can´t believe the denial (bless you all, seriously) of some of my fellow Ldotterrs. Especially after this rigged election.

Gen. P is now a private citizen. Supeona or not, he does not have the clearance to testify. Then there is the fifth.

Think about it. This is the Chicago Way. His family was probably threatened too.

There will be no testimony. We are under facist rule now.

A crusty old lineman who was a mentor during my apprenticeship was known to say, "talk´s cheap, but it takes money to by whiskey". After that, good deeds or owning a mistake came to be known as "buying whiskey".

Seems to me it´s time for the General to buy some whiskey.

Here´s the deal. If supeoned, Patraeus can´t talk about anything. HE IS A CIVILIAN WHO HAS SIGNED CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENTS. Divulging anything classified in this status subjects him to prison. Just like the administration is persecuting the Navy Seals.

#15 is on to something. Remember when Hillary said the "suspension of disbelief"? Did Hillary know about the "affair" back then, perhaps? Maybe she was relating Petraeus´s affair to Bill and Monica, but didn´t feel she could "out" Petraeus without further proof. Probably not but one does wonder.

Why would Petraeus fare any better than Gaddafi with Obama. Supporting Obama does not guarantee that he will not throw you under the bus. I would be very wary of getting Obama off the Benghazi hook while relying on his promise of a pardon.

Being a civilian and therefore no longer having a security clearance doesn´t protect him from testifying. Regardless of his status he would not be allowed to disclose secrets - else ever spy could just resign and be free to disclose everything they know. But he could be required to testify in closed session under the right circumstances.
Signing confidentiality agreements would have no effect on his subpoenaed testimony. Think about it. If it were so then every criminal would have confidentiality agreements in their back pocket at the ready to protect against being ratted out.
And there is no Fifth Amendment unless there is the potential of a crime, which yet remains to be seen, and, if there is, it can be simply overcome by granting him immunity for his testimony.
No, there are ways for him to testify if he wants to and possibly ways not to if he doesn´t. It may not be pretty if he has blood on his hands but if he wants to put country first he can.

I read a comment on a different site that really raised my eyebrow regarding the ´who knew what when´. Is it possible all this info regarding his affair was being held back to ensure testimony on Libya coincided correctly with the WH - and rather than give in or comply he outed himself?

Fox Cable News article states the President
only learned of this situation Wed, after the election. Overseas websites state the Administration would have known about the situation weeks ago. The ONLY news media that we can trust appear to be outside the U.S. General P´s wife was given a cosy job recently. The CEO of Lockheed-Martin recently resigned for the same reason that Gen P did.
But the President knew nothing. If that is true, he runs the most incompetent Administration in history, and if it is a lie, then it is all another scandalous cover-up. One can assume, just thinking, blackmail, pay-offs, and even worse, the "T" word.

Benghazi= Obozo Criminally Negligent = Obozo TREASON= evil ..

Is it so hard to figure out why Obozo had to fire the head of the CIA Petraeus who knew the story & would not lie and would not take the blame for letting the embassy employees die, especially the military seals ... the affair is just normal Obozo style misdirection for Benghazi and Obozo´s voting machine fraud that got him re-elected.

All of the BS about David´s private affairs is a distraction from the main issue: What will he say when he testifes- by subpoena or otherwise- about the
Benghai disgrace?

Small people care about his love life, such as it was. Serious thinkers want to know about what he can disclose about the government´s disgraceful abandonment of our embassy and CIA personnel.

The aftermath of GOP losses seems to always result in absolute descent into the kind of
reaction one expects resembles ranting children playing the same blame games just like their counterparts.
Attack anyone who is accused before facts are weeded out from the political dust. yell about standing up to the offenders while expecting someone else to pull the wagon.
We lost the election because we failed to keep it honest and we failed the nation because we don´t want to take the responsibility.
If you don´t like the leadership in the house demand a few resignations.
name calling without action is just so the voice flitting on the wind.

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance.

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use.

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
