President Obama is giving his first press conference in months, and it’s more of the same. He thinks he has a mandate to raise taxes and the investigations into his many scandals are ongoing as usual. In the meantime, General David Petraeus has agreed to testify before Congress. Maybe now that he isn’t constrained by the corrupt Obama administration we can get to the truth.
On the heels of David Petraeus agreeing to testify on the Libya terror attack, Republican senators on Wednesday stepped up their call to empanel a “select committee” to investigate the tragedy — as they raised concern that the administration’s internal review would fall short.
“Let me be clear: there is no credibility among most of us concerning the administration and the numerous controversies and contradictions that have been involved in their handling of this issue,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said, at a lengthy news conference on Capitol Hill.
McCain was joined by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., in calling for a temporary Senate committee established specifically to investigate Libya. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid later said he would not support their proposal.
The call for what would effectively be a new investigation comes as lawmakers continue to pry into the administration’s narrative on what happened before, during and after the attack that killed four Americans.
