You sure do come across as angry at times, Mikeyy.
But that's your bag, baby.
Not mine.

Kirk, I don't even like addressing you anymore. To you it's all a game. A war between the sides and you have your team. I don't hate Gowdy. I hate the fact that our representatives waste time and money on partisan stuff like this and do nothing for the country as a whole. You will never understand that. I am not a fan of Hillary. But I also don't know what you think this committee is out to prove. It's simply using our institutions and money to play their private partisan political games. I know I waste my breath talking to you so I will stop.

Benghazi committee pursuing 'partisan investigation' targeting Hillary Clinton


Washington (CNN)A former investigator with the House Select Committee on Benghazi is accusing the Republican-led panel of carrying out a politically motivated investigation targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton instead of the thorough and objective fact-finding mission it was set up to pursue.

Major Bradley Podliska, an intelligence officer in the Air Force Reserve who describes himself as a conservative Republican, told CNN that the committee trained its sights almost exclusively on Clinton after the revelation last March that she used a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. That new focus flipped a broad-based probe of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, into what Podliska described as "a partisan investigation."


Podliska, who was fired after nearly 10 months as an investigator for the Republican majority, is now preparing to file a lawsuit against the select committee next month, alleging that he lost his job in part because he resisted pressure to focus his investigative efforts solely on the State Department and Clinton's role surrounding the Benghazi attack. He also alleges he was fired because he took leave from the committee to fulfill his military service obligations, which would be an unlawful firing.

"I knew that we needed to get to the truth to the victims' families. And the victims' families, they deserve the truth -- whether or not Hillary Clinton was involved, whether or not other individuals were involved," he told CNN in an exclusive TV interview that will air Sunday on "State of the Union." "The victims' families are not going to get the truth and that's the most unfortunate thing about this."

Podliska told CNN that the committee, which has spent $4.6 million so far and is chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, pulled resources away from probes of other individuals and agencies to focus almost exclusively on Clinton and the State Department she helmed for four years. Clinton will testify before the committee for the first time Oct. 22 and the committee is set to release the findings of its investigation next year, in the heat of the presidential race.

Podliska alleges that the committee's staff director told him he was fired for three reasons: using work email to send a social invitation to colleagues, assigning an "unauthorized project" to an intern, and allegedly putting classified information on an unclassified system. Podliska, an intelligence officer who was hired for his expertise with the intelligence community, strongly denies the latter. He also disputes the legitimacy of the other two reasons cited to him by the committee, in particular assigning any "unauthorized projects" to interns.

A committee spokesperson "vigorously" denied Podliska's allegations about why he was fired and defended the objectivity of the panel's investigation.

"We are confident that the facts and evidence give no support to the wild imagination fueling these and any future allegations, and the Committee will vigorously defend itself against such allegations. The Committee will not be blackmailed into a monetary settlement for a false allegation made by a properly terminated former employee," the committee spokesperson, who declined to be named, told CNN in a statement.

The committee statement also accused Podliska of his own bias in his work on the committee, a claim the former staffer's lawyer firmly denied.


The statement added that Podliska had never previously accused the committee of conducting a biased investigation targeting Clinton, although Podliska said he repeatedly made the case to his superiors that the committee's work should be more all-encompassing.

Podliska said he decided to come forward because the committee's skewed focus is detracting from the objective of uncovering the truth surrounding the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. "What happened was wrong," Podliska said.

"I'm scared. I'm nervous. I know that this is, you know, I'm going up against powerful people in Washington. But at the end of the day I need to live with myself," he said. "I told my wife, I will view myself as a coward if I don't do the right thing here."

He insisted that his claim is not politically motivated, explaining that he has long been a conservative Republican -- "more on the libertarian side" -- and plans to vote for the GOP nominee in 2016.

"I am going to vote for the Republican nominee in 2016. I do not support Hillary Clinton for president," he said.

The accusation comes on the heels of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's controversial comments linking the Benghazi committee's efforts to a downward slide in Clinton's poll numbers -- an admission that McCarthy later walked back but still helped sink his bid to become House speaker.

"Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?" McCarthy said less than two weeks ago. "But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought."

Democrats have seized on that gaffe as vindication that the committee was always a partisan witch-hunt aimed at sinking Clinton's presidential prospects.

If the best you can come up with is the wildly false claim that God is trying to redefine the investigation in the face of him laying out the most complete picture of the case, perhaps it is time to admit the obvious, only partisan stooges are calling for the investigation to be buried. Oh wait, the negligence and failure to protect someone Hillary described as a friend working under her leadership followed by a cover up to enhance Obama's reelection are of no conseqence. After all what difference does it make compared to electing Hillary.

Hillary is in trouble... She knows this to. So do all Democrats.

Like the fable of Humpty Dumpty, she has fallen and broken her crown, and all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put Hillary back together again..

Take your pick here, e mails or Bengazi. To use her own words,

"What difference does it make?"

She is guilty of disregard for the American people and the rule of Law.

That alone is simply enough to knock her right out of the race.

No, we don't all know that. If someone is suspected of a crime, and a committee is formed to determine whether or not a crime has been committed, that is an investigation, not a witch hunt.

What crime would that be? It's been years now and they have produced no crime on Benghazi. So what crime are you talking about?
