John Boehner is demanding Obama should release the Benghazi emails from the State Department.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Benghazi emails detail how the talking points were altered by the State Department after the CIA submitted its initial draft.
Not all of the Benghazi emails were released, so John Boehner is calling on Obama:
“The State Department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this email when it was reviewed. I would call on the president to order the State Department to release this email so the American people can see it.”
The Benghazi emails were not supposed to be revealed due to a deal made in Congress in order to pass the confirmation of John Brennan. These emails detail some of the names of those wanting to rewrite the Benghazi talking points and the reasons why.
The White House claims it only made “stylistic” changes at a closed door White House meeting the morning after the Benghazi attack. The talking points originally included detailed information about the terrorist attack, including links to al Qaeda, but the final version stripped out those references and blamed Benghazi on “violent demonstrations” that never occurred. The story about the YouTube video by Nakoula Basseley was apparently added later by someone in the White House.
John Boehner says some congressmen were able to review the Benghazi emails while being watched, but were not allowed to keep any copies. Boehner is alleging that Obama is hiding the truth about Benghazi:
“Last November, the President said he was ‘happy to cooperate in any way Congress wants. This is his chance. The truth shouldn’t be hidden from the American people behind a White House firewall,” Boehner continued. “Four Americans lost their lives in this terrorist attack. Congress will continue to investigate this issue, using all of the resources at our disposal.”
What do you think the Benghazi emails will reveal?
