Chuck Todd Slams Cummings, Other Democrats for “Shielding” Hillary in Benghazi Hearings

Posted by Tina

Credit should be given when it’s due. David Rutz of the Free Beacon:

Meet The Press host Chuck Todd called out ranking Benghazi Select Committee member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) and other Democrats Sunday for using so much of their time this week with Hillary Clinton to “shield” her rather than ask real questions about Clinton’s handling of the terrorist attack.

Less than 25 percent of the Democrats’ questions, according to the NBC show’s calculations, were actually “challenging,” Todd said. The hearing was referred to as “partisan” by many mainstream media outlets, but they chose to give it that label because of the Republicans’ tough questioning of Clinton, not Democrats consistently bashing the proceedings and saying “nothing new” was being learned.

“We tallied up 68 total questions to Secretary Clinton [from Democrats],” Todd said. “16 of them, at best, could we call challenging….

Once in awhile the left media manages to notice something is off.

    The Witch Hunt Harold Gowdy and His gang are doing is a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars. Exactly what is being accomplished? Exactly what is the crime you speak of? Exactly what is being shielded? name it. SHow Us.

    The fact you do not want Clinton does not mean one gets to use Tax dollars and media to falsely accuse. If there is anything the FBI will find it.

    Yet the GW Bush Admin is some saintly Republican Admin that gets away with the actual murder of Americans?

    I am not A Clinton supporter but I will speak of the issues and try to win against her. Only Problem for the GOP speaking on actual issues is the majority of Americans would not like the truth in their policies. We have a documented history of their failure.

    The corruption is being sold by both parties. We are a pre fascist country bar None. Whatever the Oligarchy wants, they get.

    So instead of playing the propaganda game who is your candidate and what is his/her policy vs a Hilliary policy?

    How about an election on the issues instead of feed the media propaganda to win?

    Chuck Todd and everybody at NBC are under strict orders just like the Fox station. Anybody who speaks on a issue that is not to comcast liking is fired. They are focused on ad money for profit not actual truth.

    Media is no more than fascist tv for superpac money. BTW Chuck Todd is Hated wondered when the Fox News viewers would love the comcast MSNBC propaganda peeps.

    So you hate Hilliary… Now on the issues…………. speak

    All the Americans who died in the GW Bush Wars on a lie do not matter?

      Dewey we at Post Scripts “speak on the issues” all the time:

      The economy, employment, debt, healthcare, immigration and related issues.

      What’s the prob?

      All lives matter. Not all lives have been given in vain as so many have under Obama.

  2. Tina says:

    That would be Trey Gowdy.

    Gowdy’s task has been undermined by the Democrats on the panel and the length of time and expense is due to Hillary and others delaying the process. Remember Hillary at first said she had turned over to the government all emails that related to government business. Then her hard drive was, ooops, destroyed…wiped clean. Then the committee found she was lying when thousands of her emails were recovered…at least one containing secret information.

    The list of possible crimes is growing and include, obstruction of justice, lying to Congress, misleading congress, destruction of documents, putting classified information in a non-classified venue, espionage, and lying to a federal judge.

    The FBI is investigating.

    Sorry to hear that you don’t take this seriously. You pretend to be a big government watchdog type person. It seems this is just a ruse, and not very clever at that! You are actually a partisan activist.

  3. J. Soden says:

    In the Obumble admin, the FBI acts as a Demwit Cover-up Committee. Given the lack of charges against Holder for Fast & Furious, and their “no charges” decision for Lois Lerner, you have to wonder if anyone in the FBI is paying attention to our laws!

    And those Demwits on the Benghazi Committee were on display showing that covering for $hilLIARy was more important than truth. She’s still on the hook for her active participation in the Blame the Video Cover-up. Gonna be some interesting political ads by the GOP this time around. All they have to do is show $hilLIARy lying and flip-flopping, and those have been too many to count!

    It’s laughable to hear Dewey, Cummings and other Hillary supporters complain about the cost to uncover the truth on the Benghazi attack where four men were killed, but voice no objection to Obama spending far more on golfing trips and fund raising.

    Benghazi Committee Investigation Costs The Same As TWO MONTHS’ Worth Of Obama Golf, Fundraiser Junkets:

    The watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained records which show that trips Obama made earlier this year to Chicago, Los Angeles and other parts of California cost taxpayers $4,436,245.50 in transportation expenses alone.

    That’s nearly the amount of money that the Benghazi Committee has spent, mostly on staffers’ salaries, during its investigation. That spending, $4.5 million worth, has been one source of complaint from the usually spend-happy Democrats who believe that the committee’s investigation is a politically-motivated hit job on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state during the Benghazi attack.

  5. Tina says:

    Peggy, we missed you, great to have you back!

    In 2014 alone Obama spent nearly $3 million just for travel expenses on golf.

    According to the Daily Caller (Sept 2014), Obama spent more time playing golf that in security briefings.

    We won’t even go into the expense of travel, with entourage, by the First Lady.

    It’s a dang shame that these hearings are necessary, especially when you consider it was possible to plan for an entirely different outcome on that 911 anniversary given what we knew.

    • Peggy says:

      Thanks Tina, been busy and while I love the new look of PS I find it difficult to follow the conversations with the new format. I used to be able to just go to the last comment I’d read and pick up on what’s new. Now I have to search all of the comments to find new replies. Just more time consuming sometimes when I’m short on time to spend.

      Democrats using the money spent to uncover the truth on Benghazi we all know is just another distraction to draw the uninformend’s attention away to protect Hillary and Obama. When you and I can hop on a plane in NY and fly to England in about 12 hours anyone with a smidgen of intelligence should be able to figure out that planes in Tripoli or on ships just hundreds of miles away could have gotten there in time to at least save the two men who died at the CIA annex.

      I will hold to my belief the reason planes weren’t sent help is because of the weapons still in Libya. Hillary supplied the Libyan rebels with the weapons to oust Qadaffi and the CIA employees at the annex were trying to recover/buy back the weapons to send through Turkey to Syria. Surface to air rockets would/could have taken out those planes. That’s why Steven’s flew to Benghazi that day to meet with the Turkey agent that night just before the attack on the complex.

      • Tina says:

        I have the same complaint about the new format. It saves me the time of quoting what I want to respond to but is confusing at times and has less flow.

        Your right on top of Benghazi. I hope the truth is exposed with the FBI investigating. I have to admit my faith in government has reached an all time low, however.

    Bloomberg – Mark Halperin

    “A virulent strain of Clinton Derangement Syndrome, which scientists and Republicans thought had been wiped out at the end of the last century, is now afflicting millions of conservative Americans. Some Republicans so detest Hillary Clinton they are badly underestimating how likely she is, at this point in the campaign, to be America’s 45th president. Their denial is just as strong now as it was a month ago, before Clinton began a run of political victories that have enhanced her prospects, all while the roller derby/demolition derby that is the Republican nomination contest has continued to harm the GOP’s chances of winning back the White House.

    To be sure, nothing ever happens in a linear or tidy fashion with the Clintons; she is certain to add more chapters to the Perils of Hillary saga before Election Day 2016. Bernie Sanders could still upend her in Iowa, New Hampshire, or both, which could throw the nomination battle into unadulterated bedlam.”

    Even if Clinton is nominated, a strong Republican candidate could absolutely defeat her next November, with victory as simple as the party putting forth a nominee who is more likeable to voters and better on television. Indeed, many elite and grassroots Republicans believe Clinton’s personality, which they can’t stand, will keep her out of the Oval Office no matter what.”

    But October has been good to Clinton: a glittering debate performance, the decision of potential rival Joe Biden not to run (greatly simplifying her path to the nomination), the vanquishing of Republicans during her daylong Benghazi hearing, and a solid turn at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner Saturday night. All have improved Clinton’s odds of cruising into the White House twelve months hence, and have thrown into sharper relief some of the advantages she has had all along.”

    Isn’t Mark Halperin one of yours?

    You will have to come to terms that Shillary is the chosen one. She will be your next dictator…er…prez, sorry.

    And here’s a preview of what it will be like.

    ” a glittering debate performance”

    Oh, you mean the love fest? That wasn’t a debate it the first leg of a promotional tour. She gave quite a performance if “glitter” is all that matters.

  9. J. Soden says:

    From the emails released by State on 30OCT, we now have written proof that $hrilLIARy lied. But then she’s a Clinton . . .

    Just finished reading Ed Klein’s “Unlikeable” on $hrilLIARy. Interesting on the relationship between she and Bubba. Also, shows Obumble knew about $hilLIARy’s secret server almost from day one, regardless of his claims of ignorance.
    Be warned – should you decide to read it, be prepared to take frequent showers to remove the dirty feeling you’ll get . . . . . .
