The State Department, under Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, created an arrangement for her longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin to work for private clients as a consultant while serving as a top adviser in the department.

Ms. Abedin did not disclose the arrangement — or how much income she earned — on her financial report. It requires officials to make public any significant sources of income. An adviser to Mrs. Clinton, Philippe Reines, said that Ms. Abedin was not obligated to do so.

The disclosure of the agreement that Ms. Abedin made with the State Department comes as her husband, former Representative Anthony D. Weiner, a Democrat, prepares for a mayoral run in New York City. Politico reported the arrangement on Thursday afternoon.

Ms. Abedin declined a request for an interview, but the picture that emerges from interviews and records suggests a situation where the lines were blurred between Ms. Abedin’s work in the high echelons of one of the government’s most sensitive executive departments and her role as a Clinton family insider.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) said Friday that he will subpoena Ambassador Thomas Pickering over the investigation into last year's deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, according to multiple reports.
Along with former Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen, Pickering led the independent review of the attack. The two men sent a letter to Issa on Thursday in which they agreed to testify before the committee in public but declined to meet privately with lawmakers before the testimony.
"In our view, requiring such a closed-door proceeding before we testify publicly is an inappropriate precondition," they wrote.
On Friday, Issa responded with a letter of his own, expressing disappointment at Pickering's refusal to meet behind-closed-doors.
“In light of your continuing refusal to appear voluntarily for a transcribed interview, however, I have found it necessary to issue a subpoena to compel your appearance at a deposition," Issa wrote, according to Government Executive.
Pickering's private deposition is scheduled to be held at 10:00 a.m. ET on May 23. He told Government Executive that he hadn't heard about the subpoena yet.

'So if you don't say what we want to hear, neither will anyone else.'
If the people who wrote the Benghazi report refuses to be responsible for and justify their findings, then the report has no merit. You do realize Hilary assigned the investigators? Maybe it is time for an independent review?

Actually, I do apology for some of comments earlier. Grey Ghost had a melt down every time I mentioned pant wetting and I was yanking his chain.
For some weird reason, I still think there is hope for you.

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

Edited by you out of your link:

"I believe the President’s policies are destructive and will harm our economy, our nation, and our sense of national self long term. I believe his policies have the effect of turning us into subjects of the government, not citizens in charge of it. Because of his expansion of the social safety net funded through class warfare, Mr. Obama’s policies will cause too many Americans’ fortunes to rise and fall with those of the government, unable to chart a course for themselves apart from government."

There is the problem I had with John McCain. He made a grave error by not allowing the investigation to go forward on Weiner's wife. Her mother was former Moslem Bro Hood and the connection was there.

An opinion piece.

The person also states

"I believe the President’s policies are destructive and will harm our economy, our nation, and our sense of national self long term. I believe his policies have the effect of turning us into subjects of the government, not citizens in charge of it. Because of his expansion of the social safety net funded through class warfare, Mr. Obama’s policies will cause too many Americans’ fortunes to rise and fall with those of the government, unable to chart a course for themselves apart from government."

Maybe the person fails to understand that abuse of power or incompetence-whatever is the cause of the current failures- is also just as destructive.

Just sayin
Galt in my opinion has never served a minute and I would bet on that. Second he continues to say that I brag about my military service...A big lie..I have stated a number of times that I'm proud to have served, but never have I ever bragged about any exploits or special anything that I did or accomplished while serving. All are fabricated by him and others on the right who profess to love our military. I served and was proud then and still proud..But I repeat "I have never bragged about any heroics ever" Juat more lies from the right, I respect you realtime and i'm totally confident that you were a very good soldier, and to all that have served in any capacity..
