    The Watergate break in was a felony crime. Covering up is a felony and a "high crime and misdemeanor"

    Benghazi was a terrorist attack on the United States. There was no "coverup" only initial misreporting.

    ^^^ What a hack.

    The Obama administration orchestrated a misinformation campaign to conceal the involvement of Al Qaeda in a terrorist attack prior to the election. This, in combination with the epic fail of Obama's foreign and military policy and the tragic (and avoidable) deaths of four Americans, is far worse than Watergate.

    Watergate was one of the biggest crimes committed by a president, that the right winger's could care less about because it was done by an (R)

    how can anyone take seriously Republican complaints about Benghazi -

    when the Republicans are responsible for a misguided, unprovoked, unfunded 9 year Iraqi war that culminated in the Great Recession.

    Interesting.....I imagine you have proof

    All proof indicates the CIA was in charge of releasing information. They either had inaccurate information or chose not to release the full story immediately. Barring any proof on your part, all you have is another rightwing conspiracy theory

    How did your Fast and Furious conspiracy work out for you? Or your seven year Clinton Whitewater investigation?

    This is what Republicans do when they are not in power
