Stop wasting our tax dollars and time fabricating lies and misusing and abusing your power as elected officials. Benghazi is another manifestation of the desperate Republican attempts to destroy President Obama. The only thing more bogus than the Benghazi conspiracy theory is the attempt by Republicans to sneak their propaganda on to legitimate news outlets. If Benghazi is such a big earth shaking story, why did CBS News have transcript deleted? The truth is that there is nothing to see here. 5-5-14 CBS News Asks for Transcript of Their Bogus 60 Minutes Benghazi Report Deleted http://www.politicususa.com/2014/05/05/cbs-news-asks-transcript-bogus-60-minutes-benghazi-report-deleted.html 5-4-14: The better story - 4 Dead Americans http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/05/04/1296887/-4-Dead-Americans?detail=email 3-2-14: Fox News host calls out Darrell Issa for ‘highest level of falsehood’ on Benghazi http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/03/02/fox-news-host-calls-out-darrell-issa-for-highest-level-of-falsehood-on-benghazi/ 2-21-14: Issa Goes Full Benghazi Psycho http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/02/21/1279467/-Issa-Goes-Full-Benghazi-Psycho?detail=email 2-11-14: GOP Report Acknowledges That The U.S. Military Couldn’t Have Changed Benghazi Outcome http://thinkprogress.org/world/2014/02/11/3276171/gop-benghazi-military-hasc/ 5-17-13 Benghazi Backfires on Republicans as Democrats Eviscerate Issa and the GOP http://www.politicususa.com/benghazi-backfires-republicans-democrats-eviscerate-issa-gop.html Benghazi - Remember Issa –Hid The Truth About Benghazi For a Year While Attacking President Obama http://www.politicususa.com/2013/12/29/darrell-issa-hid-truth-benghazi-year-attacking-president-obama.html Benghazi Remember Issa for phony Benghazi scandal.

I support H.Res. 36 ("Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States") because we have recently heard from very reliable sources (http://www.thomhartmann.com/forum/2014/06/professor-francis-boyle-we-face-wwiii-we-need-articles-impeachment) that President Obama directly contacted Hillary Clinton at 10:30 pm on the date of the Benghazi attack and insisted that she promulgate the falsehood that the attack was provoked by a video demeaning Mohammed. He knew this was a deception and conveniently insisted that this information be sent out for political expediency. Both Bill and Hillary Clinton disagreed with his edict but they too "went along" with the deception for purely partisan political expediency. I contacted the California representatives on this committee by phone on 6/27/14 and received a very defensive response from the people who answered the phone. In fact, the staffer who answered the phone in Congresswoman Linda Sanchez's office told me that she was "not allowed" to comment as to whether or not Sanchez was a member of the committee. I then stated that I knew, in fact, that Congresswoman Sanchez was a member of the committee. The staffer then told me that she would listen to my comments. I now have my doubts that what I told her was passed on to Congresswoman Sanchez. I feel strongly that President Obama should be immediately removed from office and I am requesting, as one of your constituents, that you do the right thing and bring impeachment directly to the House floor for debate and vote....thank you.

I support H.Res. 36 ("Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States") because...it is long past due for this investigation and Boehner should have done this shortly after it happened. Obama and Clinton just covered it up since it was an election coming up. Congress has waited to long to find out the truth, DO IT NOW.

I oppose H.Res. 36 ("Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States") because Congress is WASTING TIME & MONEY on this matter. We have real issues to address in this country like unemployment, foreclosures, & fixing our infrastructure to name a few. STOP wasting our money & time. You’re not doing your job, Republicans you are acting like undisciplined children.

There are too many things we need. A jobs bill, an immigration bill, a national energy plan, infrastructure rebuilding. Quit playing politics.

I oppose H.Res. 36 ("Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States") because I believe this newest review is a political move intended to smear Hillary Clinton who will most likely be the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016.

This (H.Res.36) is just Republican grand standing. There are issues of health, unemployment insurance, jobs,helping the poor, etc., that are much more important than this nonsense.

I oppose H.Res. 36 ("Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States") because...it is such an obvious ploy to try to further attack Obama, an action to which I believe the Republicans will once again come up with nothing in a similar way, in which they did in their recent attempts to discredit "Obama Care" that wound up as an embarrassing failure. It seems that in their intense desperation to "get" Obama they have abandoned reason to pursue an ever elusive phantasm that will bring them nothing but more obsessiveness and despair.Of coarse there is always Koch & Co. with their billions to give them hope and the wherewithal to undertake more subterfuge.
