State Elected Officials Push Congress To Act
October 31, 2012 • 12:06PM

The following statement from September 29th, endorsed by the elected officials below, sends a firm message to Congress. As the details pour in on Obama's complicity on the day of September 11th, 2012, their call becomes increasingly vindicated and demands immediate action.

President Obama is Not Above the Law

Sufficient evidence, including Ambassador Chris Stevens' own diaries and numerous eyewitness accounts, has established that the Obama Administration had full knowledge that the attack on the Benghazi consulate, resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other American diplomats, was a premeditated, pre-planned terrorist attack. Classified briefings to relevant members of the United States Congress established those facts. Yet, the President and his top aides, including Press Secretary Jay Carney and UN Ambassador Susan Rice, persisted for over a week in lying to the American people about what they knew, and when, about these tragic and preventable events. In addition to this cover up, President Obama failed to protect our consulate and diplomats in Benghazi in the face of documented threats in eastern Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. Washington Times columnist Jeffrey Kuhner exposed the entire policy of waging an illegal war against Libya last year as creating the conditions in Libya for the free reign of the jihadist, al-Qaeda, and related Saudi Arabian-sponsored terror groups. Then the administration turned a blind eye to this growing threat of attack on United States’ representatives, and failed to provide necessary security for our consulate and ambassador. Kuhner concludes that this panoply of miscues rises to the level of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. This view was fully endorsed by former Governor Mike Huckabee, who compared the Libya killings to Watergate. He concluded that the Benghazi-gate was worse than Watergate, as nobody died in Watergate. He also raised the question of impeachable offenses. We the undersigned urge the Congress to take up this great train of abuses. This must become a subject in the hearings of Congress. After that, we urge the Judiciary Committee to weigh the evidence from the standpoint of impeachable High Crimes and Misdemeanors. We the undersigned will be watching the actions of Congress closely on these life and death matters.
