Hicks: Higher-ups at State told me not to talk to GOP congressman about Benghazi; Update: “Effectively demoted”

posted at 3:21 pm on May 8, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller, the five most essential, damning minutes from today’s hearing. And Jordan does an expert job framing them. The money line, when Hicks is asked whether he’d ever been told before not to meet with a congressional delegation: “Never.”

I won’t slow you down with further comment. None is needed — except this: Cheryl Mills is no run-of-the-mill State Department apparatchik, even among the top tier. She’s been one of the Clintons’ right-hand men for decades. She worked in Bill’s White House legal office, then as counsel to Hillary’s presidential campaign, then became chief of staff at State when Hillary was appointed secretary. If she’s the right-hand man, what other conclusion is there than that Hillary’s the one who wanted Hicks to keep his mouth shut when meeting with Chaffetz?

One last point, per today’s theme of ghettoized media. As I say, these five minutes are obviously the biggest news to come out of today’s hearings (so far). Note that, then note tomorrow how many news outlets spend any time on them vis-a-vis other ancillary issues from the testimony. For instance, Politico’s lead story as of 2:45 ET is … “Benghazi hearing gets emotional.”

Update: As of 3:30 ET, Hicks just told the panel that he was “effectively demoted” after challenging State’s leadership about its handling of Benghazi. Of course he was. How else could they discredit him later?

Note that in the clip he mentions being contacted by both Obama and Hillary afterward and congratulated on how well he’d performed during the attack.

Mark my words: the media will use this 5 minutes of testimony to proclaim what a “tough as nails” kind of woman Hillary is. How she won’t be a sitting duck for anyone. She’s too smart to allow partisanship to get in the way of her duties. She’s got a laser sharp focus on the task at hand, etc. etc.

It makes it look pretty obvious(especially when juxtaposed with the scrubbed talking points and YouTube nonsense) that there was a concerted effort to cover this up, and Hillary was heavily involved. I hope Issa and Co. keep at this. We need to know who gave the order to stand down, who scrubbed those talking points, and what the hell Stevens was doing in Benghazi that night in the first place.

You’re only partially correct. Yes, there are many idiots out there who have no clue about any of this(I affectionately call them Democrat voters).

Now, there is a lie. Your conclusion was made the day of the attacks when Obama and Hillary gave you your marching orders that the attack was based on a video, that there was no intelligence about a possible attack and that nothing could have been done about a possible attack.

And, your comments on the subject on every thread about it shows that your conclusion was made long ago and you ignore any facts that go against your conclusion and you will continue to do so until your dying day.

because being left is being dishonest. It is as simple as that.

Not saying he’s a partisan hack.

I’m more suspecting the disguntled employee out to damage his employer and make a quick buck/15min kinda thing…but I’ll need more evidence either way before coming to a conclusion

Oh look, the liar has something to say. You’ve been caught in so many lies, I’m amazed that you still have the gall to post here.

Since the morning folks destroyed him, and the evening folks kick him around regularly, he was hoping the afternoon crowd would take sympathy on his lying ways.

An issue of motive might arise, which might cloud Hick’s credibility

Strangely enough such considerations never come up when it’s a whistleblower testifying against a GOP’er, because in those cases the witness is impeachable, moral, and a paragon of speaking truth to power.

Do you really think anyone here gives a shit what you think Dave Rywall?

Who cares about liberal America? It’s a cesspool anyway. This is about one of the worst cover ups in history and a totally botched security operation. Hillary lied, 4 died.

Its funny though…no one I know is even talking about this. This may be getting coverage in the MSM, but its not penetrating liberal America.

The pathological liars I’ve dealt with are all like that – they can’t help but continue lying and making up bigger lies to cover up and keep it rolling (Harvard? Ya, right.) – especially when they get caught and are proven to be lying, they often double-down on the whole thing and just dig a deeper hole (again, Harvard? Ya, right.).
