unceasing defeat from the jaws of victory he and his political cronies in
0:05
the white house in Chicago all
0:07
say the least unenthusiastic about regime change in Libya Obama’s lukewarm
0:14
and self contradicting statements have produced what is at least for the moment
0:18
operational paralysis I think that may give us a better understanding of why
0:24
the white house may have told you you cannot hire him
0:31
dog could not get hired by our government didn’t pass any background
0:35
check at all had no role with our government had never been to Libya had
0:39
no works for teason Libya was critical of the President and others that you
0:43
worked with shared polling data with you on the intervention in Libya gave you
0:49
political advice on how to take credit for Libya all the while working for the
0:55
Clinton Foundation and some pseudo news entities and I’m secretary he had on
1:01
patterned access to you and use that access lisa one occasion ask you to
1:10
intervene on behalf of a business venture do you recall that you know
1:14
mister chairman if you don’t have any friends who say unkind things privately
1:19
I congratulate you but from my perspective I’d like i dont rectum I
1:25
know I don’t I don’t know what this line of questioning does to help us get to
1:30
the bottom of the deaths of four Americans I’ll be harder to help you
1:35
understand such terror I want to reiterate what I said to congresswoman
1:39
Sanchez’s these were originally unsolicited you just said that perhaps
1:47
the main if not be exclusive author was a former intelligence agent for our
1:53
country rose to the highest levels of the CIA and who was given credit for
1:58
being one of the very few who pointed out that the intelligence used by the
2:03
Bush administration to go toward iraq was wrong
2:08
so I think that you know the sharing of information from an old friend that I
2:15
did not take at face value that I sent on to those who were experts is
2:22
something that makes sense but it was certainly not in any way the primary
2:29
source of or the predominant understanding that we had of what was
2:35
going on in Libya and what we needed to be doing a lot of time and we’ll pick
2:40
this back up the next round but I’ll go ahead and and let you know a time why
2:44
it’s relevant it’s relevant because our ambassador was asked to read and respond
2:50
to sidney blumenthal travel it was sent to him to read and react to in some
2:56
instances on the very same day he was asking for security so I think it is
3:01
eminently fair to ask why sidney blumenthal had unfettered access to you
3:07
madam secretary with whatever he wanted to talk about and there’s not a single
3:11
solitary email to or from you to or from ambassador Stevens I think that is fair
3:18
and will join you sure chairman you made several inaccurate statements over the
3:28
past my house you have tried to defend against multiple Republican emissions
3:33
that the select committee has been wasting millions of tax dollars to
3:38
damage secretary Clinton’s bid for president by Sunday made another
3:44
inaccurate statement during your opinions on face the nation is being
3:48
taken up here in his relevance here is what you said and I quote there are
3:53
other phones you may have
3:56
equities in her emails and there may be other entities who are evaluating their
4:02
emails but my interests mindless in them is solely met
4:08
that I get everything I meant I recruit so that I can do my job
4:12
the rest of it classification Clinton Foundation you name it I have zero
4:19
interest in it which is why you haven’t seen me senate subpoena related to it
4:24
interview a single person I’m in Brian Eno because I need to know that the
4:31
record is complete
4:32
I’m going back to the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth I’m
4:35
waiting waiting waiting waiting on the city I’m getting here mister chairman
4:43
once I don’t take long for many so over it so that everybody go over to you
4:50
mister very much you issued a subpoena to sidney blumenthal on May 19 2015
4:56
compared to appear for deposition on June 16 2015 you issued a subpoena to
5:03
unilaterally without giving the select committee members the opportunity to
5:08
debate or vote on it you said to our models to serve the subpoena on this is
5:13
booming the house wife at their home without having ever sent a request to
5:18
participate voluntarily which he would have done then mister jam and you
5:23
personally attended mr. Blumenthal’s deposition you personally asked him
5:27
about the Clinton Foundation as you personally directed your staff to ask
5:32
questions about our Clinton the Clinton Foundation which they did more than 50
5:36
times now these facts directly contradict the statements you made on
5:42
national television don’t know shirt with all due respect they do not where
5:46
we just heard email after email after email about Libya and Benghazi that
5:52
sidney blumenthal sent to the Secretary of State I don’t care if he sent by
5:56
Morse code carrier pigeon smoke signals the fact that he happened to send it by
6:01
e-mail is irrelevant what is relevant is that he was sending information to the
6:06
secretary of state that is
6:09
relevant now with respect to the subpoena if you bothered to answer the
6:12
telephone calls
