“The Benghazi hearings this week before House Chairman Darrell Issa’s Oversight and Government Reform Committee were a stark reminder of how congressional Republicans and former Republican independent counsels Ken Starr and Robert Ray shirked their duties and subverted justice when they let both Hillary Clinton and hubby ‘President Bill’ off the hook in the late 1990s for their more than 40 major scandals and rampant criminality.”
So writes Larry Klayman, the same man who blamed Muslims for the fertilizer plant explosion and who provided Billy Hallowell with a “translation” of an imam’s funeral prayer, in a recent column titled “HILLARY’S CRIMINALITY NO CONCERN TO REPUBLICANS”.
The idea that Ken Starr and Robert Ray, who spent millions in taxpayer dollars trying to get Bill Clinton impeached for lying about his sex life, “shirked their duties” by not doing enough to get Clinton removed from office would be outrageous enough.
But this is Larry Klayman we’re talking about.
Klayman goes on to blast the Republicans for “Failing to impeach and convict – as well as indict, try and imprison – the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ of American politics,” which he now claims “has come back to haunt, torment, torture and harm not only the Grand Old Party, but much more importantly the American people and the nation as a whole.”
Klayman proceeds to offer “just brief recap” (his exact words), and proceeds to rattle off a long list of unproven allegations and outright conspiracy theories, all without a single period.
“After the Benghazi hearings concluded Wednesday,” wrote Klayman, “House Chairman Darrell Issa was interviewed by Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren and asked whether or not criminal charges would be pursued against Hillary and her accomplices like Cheryl Mills for obstruction of justice and related illegal acts. Typically responding in ‘establishment Republican fashion,’ Issa told Greta that his focus was not on pursuing justice for these crimes, but making sure that the State Department protected its ambassadors and other embassy officials and employees in the future.
“During the Clinton White House years, Republicans took a similar tact after Democrats dug up dirt on their own dealings with communist China during the campaign finance congressional hearings of 1997. This leads me to question what dirt they now have may have dug up on Chairman Issa and his colleagues that would lead him and other Republican officials to again fail to legally take Hillary out by putting her in prison where she belongs and can do no further harm to the nation.”
Darrell Issa has promised to have two hundred hearings on Benghazi if need be. He has made absolutely no secret of the fact that he, just like Ken Starr before him, is fully committed to twisting Benghazi into somehow being an impeachable offense no matter what it takes from him.
And yet, somehow, this still isn’t enough for Larry Klayman.
