Darrell Issa Subpoenas John Kerry Again after State Department lies to him

Democrat leaders in the Obama administration have been doing everything they can to avoid any responsibility for the Benghazi scandal. Darrell Issa is refusing to let John Kerry slither away though, issuing yet another subpoena in an attempt to force him to testify.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Thursday issued a new subpoena requiring Secretary of State John Kerry to testify on Benghazi, accusing the State Department of using “slippery” tactics to try to wiggle out of having Kerry appear.

Issa’s new subpoena demands that Kerry testify before his committee on May 29.

Issa lifted his first subpoena requiring Kerry to testify on May 21 after the State Department said it was seeking another date because Kerry is due to be in Mexico at the time.

“But soon after I lifted the subpoena, the State Department backtracked — stating publicly that we should accept ‘a more appropriate witness’ and refusing to commit to making Secretary Kerry available,” Issa said in a statement. ”With this State Department’s slippery tactics, it’s no wonder our friends in the world are losing faith in us and our adversaries doubt our credibility.”

Republicans have finally — finally — been stepping up on Benghazi, and if they don’t lose their spines, then the Obama White House may finally be responsible for ignoring intelligence on the cause of the Benghazi attack, as well as purposely leaving four Americans to die. The fact that no one has been held responsible for what should be one of the biggest political scandals in decades is unacceptable.
