RON HART: Mr. President, you might have to tell the truth

Published: Friday, May 16, 2014 at 09:50 AM.

Just when you wonder what Congress is not going to do next, Speaker of the House John Boehner musters up enough courage to try to get the facts on the White House’s role in covering up the Benghazi attack before Obama’s election. Obama and his O-bots continue to withhold documents, obfuscating the investigation.

To date, they have only sent in, on the "honor" system, a few heavily redacted documents. It took a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch and a court decision to unearth recent meaningful evidence.

Alert to the White House spokeskids: “Dudes, it’s a subpoena!”

Democrats, who are in a perpetual state of being offended, responded as expected. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) fretted, “The amount of money they can spend is undefined and can be unlimited.” This marks the first time a Democrat cared how much Washington spent on anything.

Congressman Trey Gowdy will lead the inquiry. He is excited and will have lots of questions: What did the president know and when did he know it? Why did the White House push the YouTube video as the reason for the attack before the presidential election? Why must I go back to my small town in South Carolina to get my hair frosted and my tips feathered? Why can’t I find a barber in D.C. who knows how to cut a man’s hair right?

Suggestions to Congressman Gowdy: 1. Don’t focus on the terrorist attack. We were sitting ducks. 2. Focus on the White House cover-up. 3. Subpoena everyone involved in pushing the lie about the video, not only their official e-mails but the fake ones they really used to communicate (like EPA director Jackson had). 4. Roads will lead back to Obama’s political henchmen in Chicago, David Axelrod and the like. Be sure to question them.

In what ways is Benghazi like, but arguably far worse, than the Watergate scandal? First, four Americans died there. Second, Obama’s team manufactured a lie about the reason to protect him before the election. Third, a hapless filmmaker is still in jail over the video.
