Andy sends us a link to an article about Hillary Clinton and her inability to show up at the hearings about the terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate on September 11th. Apparently she had a virus which caused her to dehydrate and pass out and then she conked her head on something causing a concussion. So she got a note from John Kerry which excused her absence;
Sen. John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, upon being told Saturday about Clinton’s illness and injury “insisted” she not appear at the hearing, said Jodi Seth, spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Democrat.
I guess they all figured that if she answered questions, those answers might hurt her chances for her run at the White House in 2016. So, a flunky speaking in her stead gives her a measure of insulation from those answers. or at least they can’t use those answers in a political commercial.
The House and Senate committees said Wednesday that Clinton would testify Thursday.
The State Department over the next two days appeared to waffle on the whether Clinton would testify on the appointed date.
Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday the agency’s Accountability Review Board report on the attacks, upon which Clinton will largely base her testimony, might not be complete. However, acting deputy spokesman Patrick Ventrell said Friday he anticipated the report will be ready and Clinton will make the scheduled appearance.
Funny how that timeline works out. In Hillary’s favor.
