Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama administration lied about Benghazi 'video', GOP says

Hillary Clinton dismissed a Republican broadside on her and President Obama over the Benghazi attacks today saying: 'Move on.'

The Republican members of the House Benghazi committee issued their 800 page report with excoriating words for her and the president, accusing her of 'shameful' conduct over her secret email account, and the White House of lying about what caused the attacks.

Her 'homebrew' server was only revealed because of the investigation into the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The blistering 800-page report excoriates the Obama administration, finding that it lied about what caused the attacks which claimed the lives.

It says what went wrong may never be fully known because of a 'shameful' decision by Hillary Clinton not to turn over the contents of her secret 'homebrew' server, whose existence only came to light because of the investigation.

But her response was curt. 'I think it is pretty clear it is time to move on,' she said.

Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee claimed Tuesday that the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton lied repeatedly to the American people about the nature of and reasons for the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya, even as they privately acknowledged what caused them.

The report offers no explanation for why it took 18 hours for military assets to reach the Libyan city - many hours after the president ordered every possible measure to be taken, and the then defense secretary testified that he ordered deployment.

Total waste of time and money. While Rome burned.

Dave T: sorry but I'm not impressed with the GOP regarding this investigation. Their progress is slow, their message is weak and unclear. After all the time and money spent on this investigation I would expect a better performance. Get on the ball GOP, you are looking pretty lame. It's been my biggest criticism over the past 8 years that Obama's success is largely based on the fact that he is facing "weak" competition. The GOP continues to be in disarray while the liberal left is completely united as a cohesive group. There is no excuse in my opinion why conservatives can't band together and defeat the pack of liberal kooks that continues to dominate time and again. Spineless is how I describe Republican leaders today. And Paul Ryan, you are at the top of that list.
