Jonathan Easley @ The Hill:
Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on his radio show Monday that President Obama “will not fill out his full term” because he was complicit in a “cover-up” surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya.
“I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term,” Huckabee said. “I know that puts me on a limb, but this is not minor.”
“When a president lies to the American people and is part of a cover-up, he cannot continue to govern,” he added. “And as the facts come out, I think we’re going to see something startling. And before it’s over, I don’t think this president will finish his term unless somehow they can delay it in Congress past the next three and a half years.”
Some Republicans have maintained that the administration has not been forthcoming in the circumstances surrounding the attack, pointing to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who went on Sunday news shows and argued the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to an offensive video. The administration later admitted Rice’s claim was made with insufficient intelligence, and labeled the event an act of terror.
On Monday, House Republicans released portions of an interview with State Department whistle-blower Gregory Hicks, who took over as the top U.S. diplomat in Libya after Stevens was killed.
The majority say nothing will happen. Remember Capone and Gotti. Teflon. No one could get to them. Heroes kept trying and eventually they were gone. sure hopes it helps with Hillary and BO.
With Slow Joe as the booby prize, Obamadebacle will just fester on ……..
@Stone Soup: Actually, if it snow-balls enough, we could end up with the Speaker of the House at the helm…
We should not ignore the possible snowball effect of the Benghazi scandal on the 2014 Congressional elections. If Americans learn of this, become incensed and are also convinced that Obama and others should be impeached and if this stretches into the Election season, the voters might just vote for Republican control of both houses of Congress to insure that impeachment takes place. It is now clear that Hillary lied to Congress in the hearings where she was questioned. You would think that with her involvement in the Watergate hearings that she would have known better.
The downside might be a possible two years with the crown jester Biden becoming president, unless he too is implicated. Should all this happen, that would take both Biden & Hillary out of the running for 2016.
@Ditto: If the criminal investigation / prosecution is done right, many will be implicated in the executive branch as one after another attempt to buy their way out of prison by throwing other people under the bus. The bigger the ego, the more likely they are to break once you convince them their world is no longer in their control, and while getting them there, the minions fall.
