Months of Hillary emails missing . . . Rep.

In fact, we have no emails from that trip,” Gowdy said. The Hill

  1. ” Congressional opposition to Obama amnesty order over “.
    Thanks Republicans, now you and the DNC can call and send mail asking for $$$ to the illegals, oops, I mean dreamer’s.
    Sincerely, one po’d Citizen.

    • There’s no difference between Reid-McConnell and Pelosi-Boehner is there ?

      I’m so sad for our country that there is no true representation anymore. We voted Dems out for a reason, what’s it going to take for the GOP to get the message ?

      Haven’t heard a peep from the Tea Party leaders either, still bogged down with the IRS ?

      • There is a movement by the conservatives in the house to replace Boehner as speaker.
        He just enabled Obama to break the law.
        He is complicit and should be removed from his position.

        I don’t care if Obama’s administration has dirt on him.

        • Too late, AFVet. The damage is done and it’s irreversible.

          Heard that Boehner and the RINOS are praying that SCOTUS will not reverse course on O/Care. The lazy bums do not want to deal with it and will delay all actions if it is overturned.

          • Nothing is irreversible.
            As far as the SCOTUS is concerned, their decision will determine the spine that the congress has to restrain Obama.

            Maybe it is just sabre rattling by the conservatives in the congress.
            We have memories and we have the tools to tell us how they voted and who voted for what bill.

  2. Per the vaca’s.
    It has been documented that the price tag for their vacations has cost upwards of 40 million dollars,….and that does not include the price for security nor the additional aircraft it takes to haul around their equipment.

  3. Hmmmm?
    Jerusalem Post has an interesting article concerning pending nuclear treaty with Iran. House Republicans claim treaty can be overturned once Obama leaves office as it would only be an EO.
    Drudge has link also.
    I’m not sure what this would mean, anyone?

  4. As far as o claiming he just found out though the news. This excuse is getting old. He needs to change his advisors, and or others. Also he needs to read the briefings in front of a witness or a camera. He is like a child who may need their parent nearby, to make sure they do their homework.

  5. “If you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya – she has sunglasses on and she has her handheld device in her hand – we have no emails from that day…..” –Gowdy

    Well, of course there’s no emails. There she is, flying that C-17 (a mighty fine aircraft, btw), with Brian Williams as her co-pilot, dodging sniper fire and SAM missiles, making that aircraft do things no one has ever done with a C-17, saving lives, the fate of the world hanging on her quick decisions, and Gowdy expected her to be emailing?

    Need I say /sarc.
