Issa Subpoenas Kerry To Testify On Benghazi
All he will do is tell more lies.
Check it out:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is issuing a subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before the committee May 21 about Benghazi, Issa announced Friday.
The move comes in the wake of new, “smoking gun” emails that show top White House officials working to craft a narrative that the attack was the result of a YouTube video and “not a broader failure of policy.”
Republicans have expressed outrage that the documents were not provided earlier under subpoenas for them, but were instead revealed via a Freedom Of
Information Request lawsuit by the conservative non-profit group Judicial Watch.
“Compliance with a subpoena for documents is not a game. Because your Department is failing to meet its legal obligations, I am issuing a new subpoena to compel you to appear before the Committee to answer questions about your agency’s response to the congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack,” Issa said in a May 2 letter to Kerry.
Regarding the Obama administration’s failure to provide the documents before now, Issa warns Kerry, “such contempt of Congress may constitute a criminal offense.”
