Timing Is Everything or is it.....Hillary Clinton Won’t Testify On Benghazi After Suffering A Concussion

Convenient: Hillary Clinton Won’t Testify On Benghazi After Suffering A Concussion


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t testify to Congress next week on Benghazi, after fainting and suffering a concussion Saturday and due to her ongoing stomach ailment.

“While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philippe Reines said in a statement. “She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”

Deputy Secretaries of State Bill Burns and Tom Nides will both testify in Clinton’s place, according to the office of Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA).

“Secretary Clinton’s team contacted Senator Kerry this morning to inform them of the Secretary’s concussion. Senator Kerry was relieved to hear that the Secretary is on the mend, but he insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear on Thursday as previously planned, and that the nation’s best interests are served by the report and hearings proceeding as scheduled with senior officials appearing in her place,” said Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth in a statement.

Way to convenient especially since she has put it off already, what will she come up with next as an excuse not to testily.

Benghazi will be wiped from existence by the obama group. The media continues on with it's seemingly blind support of obama. The Repub House, with a few exceptions, treads water. This is going to be a long painfull costly 4 years ahead.

How convenient to have a concussion not verified by a hospital visit. No MRI, CT Scan, or X-ray for diagnoses. Aw shucks, I bet she's all broken up about not being able to testify before congress.

Thunder thighs may have skated around this round of hearings but bet the farm Darrell Issa will end up issuing a subpoena once she has recovered from her near fatal upset stomach.
