President Obama has decided that he is no longer going to answer any questions about the terror attacks in Benghazi that left four Americans dead.
Just look what happened when Rep. Trey Gowdy recently sent the White House a list of questions about the attack…
From The Federalist Papers via Politico:
But Obama – through his lawyer, Neil Eggleston, flatly refused. Instead, Politico reports, he blasted the committee for even daring to send the President a list of questions. He said he encouraged Obama not to answer the questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” according to a letter sent Saturday to Gowdy (R-S.C.) .
“If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” the letter reads.
Eggleston also accused the committee of political games – claiming the panel asked questions they already know the answer to – something the committee denies.
For its part, the committee said Obama’s refusal to cooperate only hinders their investigation.
“It’s no surprise President Obama would rather take questions from Derek Jeter than answer questions for the American people about the Benghazi terrorist attacks, which followed what he himself has called his worst mistake — failing to plan for what happened after the State Department pushed U.S. intervention in Libya,” said committee spokesman Jamal Ware.
“The White House’s fictional narrative today is the latest chapter of the story it has been spinning since 2012, when four of our fellow citizens were murdered by Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists in the tragic terrorist attacks in Benghazi.”
Gowdy still hasn’t received a response from Obama, and I bet he never will.
Instead, he was sharply criticized for his panel’s “motives.”
Makes sense, right?
