Issa Pushes Forward With His Own Benghazi Investigation

""

Just days after the House voted to impanel a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa signaled that he will continue his own separate investigation into the attacks.

The California Republican on Thursday issued another subpoena to Secretary of State John Kerry, calling on the former senator—who was serving in the Senate at the time of the attack—to appear before the Oversight Committee on May 29. Earlier this month, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner announced his intention to form a select committee on the matter, Issa issued a subpoena requiring Kerry to appear before the committee on May 21, but changed the date due to a conflict with Kerry's scheduled trip to Mexico that week.

"The State Department had discussed May 29 as a possible alternative date and that's when Secretary Kerry will be obligated to appear—further accommodation will not be possible," Issa said in a statement. "Absent an assertion of executive privilege, the State Department has a legal obligation to fully and completely comply."

Boehner said at the time that he supports Issa's subpoena, and spokesman Michael Steel confirmed Thursday that that remains the case.

4. If Boner can't stop this, he'll look like an even bigger jackass than he already does.

How much money to run 2 simultaneous investigations? At least one of these investigations is being run by a complete moron.

5. ISSA FIDDLES WHILE HIS DISTRICT (literally)BURNS

Roads & freeway closed, children's hospitals and emergency rooms closed, all schools closed, houses burned, lives ruined, his droughted district was an inevitable tinderbox. ...yet from ALEC/KOCH disciple Issa only Benghazee,Bengahzee, Bengahzee.

I simply don't understand why Issa keeps getting reelected. The only thing he's ever done for his district was get legislation passed to reroute a freeway around a medical building he owns to self-enrich.

It's the same as Rubio denying manmade climate change while representing a state that's certain to drown. Issa represents So So Ca yet has only obstructed/opposed any Congressional efforts to save it from the ocean's rising and our planet burning. Whatever doesn't burn up in Issa's district will drown. He even voted against energy efficient light bulbs! Issa remains all Benghazee delusions, protecting the IRS from the Kochs and the Rove's, anti mass transit & pro big Oil & gas.
