GOP rep calls Petraeus probe
´perplexing and suspicious´

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/17/2014 5:02:17 AM

The ongoing investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus is “perplexing and suspicious,” according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee. After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner." Chaffetz also told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News’ “The Real Story” Wednesday that the open investigation may have a chilling

They´re keeping Petraeus quiet. It´s obvious to all of us.

CIA employees have to take polygraph exams every six months or so. (I may be wrong). If so, they know he did not do anything illegal.

The investigation is nothing other than a ruse to prevent him from testifying.

Safe to assume that Obama knew about Petraeus´ bimbo biographer with the perfect name, Broadwell, BEFORE Petraeus was appointed CIA Director, which is why he was appointed to a job he lacked experience with. Obama also had Elizabeth Warren, then acting head of the newly created CFPB, hire Petraeus´ wife to a $187,500 a year job, a job she still has, furthering sweetening what appears to be a bribe to the money grubbing general who was receiving his $150,000 per year military pension in addition to his CIA salary,

These financial gifts of taxpayer money kept Petraeus quiet about Obama´s disastrous decisions in Iraq and Afghanistan and Obama´s lies about Benghazi during his 20 month assignment as CIA head. To keep the the gag on Petraeus after 11/2012, Obama had Holder start an investigation of Petraeus, an investigation that has gone on longer than the one for George Zimmerman, the condo owner who shot Trayvon Martin. Holder still has Zimmerman´s gun, Petraeus´s wife still has her CFPB job and Petraeus has a reason to remain silent rather than speak out on the fatal actions of Obama. The Chicago Way in action.

Petraeus can probably blow the case wide open:

Fox News has been told any testimony by Petraeus would be of keen interest to the Benghazi committee headed by Rep.Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., ...

I trust Gowdy to find a way. He is formidable and will not let this alone.

Holder is the keeper of all information too damaging to our dear leader. As long as they keep it as an "ongoing" investigation, all lips are sealed.

I´m starting to think Holder is the most dangerous man in America right now. He has entirely too much power and control over all these scandals.

Our Department of so-called Justice under Eric The Great has become a whipping boy of political punishment.The Department has become an army of political hacks anxious to get even for imaginary harms. It’s a “justice” that permits you to threaten voters away from a voting booth with billy clubs, if you be the right skin color.

Some of us think the biggest crisis this country faces involves character--lower standards of honesty and integrity, for instance.

The Petraeus case may reveal how the general, seen as a man of good character, fell from grace so suddenly. Were there others with serious character flaws involved?

Enough.

It is time to demand a full detailed report on the status of these investigations. Failure to immediately demonstrate real progress should be cause for Congress to order the Administration to stop the internal investigations and let Congress do its Constitutional oversight job.

Agreed, #15. But taking that step gives Congress the authority to tell the Emperor to "stick" his investigations. Congress can simply ignore them and any excuse that these investigations might be "compromised". It can then do its job.

If and when the Patraeus investigation interferes with the Gowdy committee’s progress – by keeping them from interviewing Patraeus or the administration uses the “ongoing investigation” excuse for not providing important information, then Gowdy’s committee should request a detailed report on the status of the investigation including:
*A week-by-week accounting of the man-hours spent on the investigation, including the nature of the work performed (interviewing witness X, reviewing document Y, analyzing communications between A and B, status/coordination meetings between investigators, etc.);
*The names and titles of all of the people that they claim have been involved in the investigation; and time sheets, travel expense reports, calendars, etc. for each of them;
*All emails or other communications related to the investigations – from all levels of the FBI and/or the administration, particularly emails between the investigators and anyone above them.

Any bets on whether that information will be produced quickly or whether there will be another smoke-screen of delays and excuses (crashed computers, destroyed hard-drives, emails only stored for 6-months despite the fact that federal laws mandate otherwise, etc.)

When you are in the regime business, you need to know the personal weaknesses and embarrassing secrets of important persons. This valuable information is then held in reserve and exploited to gain the cooperation of those important persons to help achieve regime goals. IMO Petraeus is such a person.

Posted By: StormCnter- 9/12/2014 5:50:17 AM     Post Reply
Supporters of President Barack Obama, such as one of his campaign donors Robert Deitrick, an Ohio financial advisor often quoted in Forbes and elsewhere, insist that the Obama economy has been much more robust than Ronald Reagan’s. Are they right? Let’s look at some numbers. President Reagan entered office in a period of high inflation which was stamped out by high interest rates that in turn led to the 1982 recession. His job-creation record after that may fairly be termed outstanding: nearly 20 million more Americans were employed when he left office than when the recession ended. Overall, including the recession

Sen. Rob Portman (R.,Ohio), trying to counter Democrats’ painting of the GOP as a party of “no,” said Thursday that he believed there were at least four things that the Senate could approve quickly if Republicans take control of the Senate this fall. Ticking them off in a breakfast with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Portman identified these areas of “common ground:” 1. The Keystone XL pipeline. Support for the pipeline has been growing among red-state Democrats and when a nonbinding measure endorsing the project came to a vote in March 2013, the vote was 62-37 with 27

Much has changed in the thirteen years since America was attacked. At least one thing has remained constant: the stupidity and futility of 9/11 truthers. The truthers don’t believe men with ties to an Islamist terror group hijacked airplanes and flew them into the twin towers or the Pentagon. In some cases, they don’t believe planes hit these buildings at all. At minimum, they maintain the government orchestrated or at least permitted the attacks. Writing about such bizarre conspiracy theorists may seem like an easy lay-up for a columnist, much like denouncing child molesters or praising puppies. Is it really worth it to

President Barack Obama and White House national security adviser Susan Rice met with a delegation of Christian Middle Eastern leaders in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that included at least one Hezbollah-supporting Lebanese cleric. The meeting came one day after Sen. Ted Cruz was booed off the stage for defending Israel while giving a keynote address at a conference for the same delegation of Christian leaders. The In Defense of Christians summit, which was aimed at raising awareness of persecution against Arab Christiansa, featured speeches by several Hezbollah supporters and some of Bashar Al-Assad’s most vocal Christian allies.

Former President George W. Bush marked the 13th anniversary of 9/11 by speaking at a luncheon in Cleveland, where he voiced regret that the terrorist attacks turned him into a "wartime president." Appearing at a fundraiser for Cuyahoga County Community College, Bush offered up recollections from that fateful day in September 2001, which he began in Florida reading a storybook to schoolchildren. Repeating a story he has told frequently, Bush said he and his team initially thought the first plane that hit the north tower of the World Trade Center was an accident, according to WKYC: Minutes later, an aide informed him

In a stunning turnaround, the Obama administration is arguing that a law authorizing a war on al Qaeda be used to justify strikes on al Qaeda’s foes. President Obama’s new war against ISIS is off to a shaky legal start. Obama’s using the law that authorized attacks against al Qaeda to justify his new fight in Syria and Iraq. One small problem: ISIS and al Qaeda are at each others’ throats. Legal experts were shocked to learn Wednesday that the Obama administration wants to rely on that 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force against al Qaeda for the new ISIS war. “On

As if there were any doubt that the imaginary presidency of Barack Hussein Obama is over, the recent calamitous events leading up to this week’s ghastly speech — the only thing Obama knows how to do, apparently, is make a speech — have certainly dispelled them in all except the minds of the true believers and perhaps Michael Beschloss. Short on specifics (“coalition” of whom?), weak-kneed, lily-livered, dispassionate and uninspiring, Obama’s latest address to the nation should be the last time any American takes what the president of the United States has to say seriously. Certainly, nobody else will. But hey

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is on pace this year to deport the fewest number of immigrants since at least 2007, even as he has postponed until after Election Day his promised unilateral action that could shield millions more from deportation. According to an analysis of Homeland Security Department figures by The Associated Press, the federal agency responsible for deportations sent home 258,608 immigrants between the start of the budget year last October and July 28 this summer. During the same period a year earlier, it removed 320,167 people - meaning a decrease this year of nearly 20 percent. Over the same

In June, 2001, Konstantin Petrov, an immigrant from Estonia, got a job as an electrician at Windows on the World, the restaurant atop the north tower of the World Trade Center. He was given a little office without cabinets, and after he built a shelf there, by bolting a steel plate to an exposed steel girder, he sent his friends a photograph of himself lying across it, and boasted that if the shelf ever collapsed the building would go down with it. Petrov worked the night shift. This suited him, not only because he had a day job, as the superintendent

That tearing sound you hear throughout the land is the rending of garments by anguished Democrats. In a day they surely never expected would arrive, President Barack Obama has a worse image than former President George W. Bush in the just-completed WSJ/NBC September poll. Of the three presidents tested, Bill Clinton remains the most popular. He has a 56% positive/21% negative rating. That’s not the key data point here. The last time 42 was below 50% positive was way back in December 2008. The last time Mr. Clinton was negatively perceived was June 2008. No, the big news from these data

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.
