Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Greta Van Susteren tonight that Petraeus will be questioned before Congress despite his resignation today.

“The fact that he’s resigned and had an affair has nothing to do with whether he will be subpoenaed to Congress. I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four star general and a former CIA director. I would hope he would come voluntarily but if he won’t he will be subpoenaed. And none of what happened today is an offense to a subpoena… He’s either a witness in our case in chief or he’s gonna be a rebuttal witness if Susan Rice and others blame him for their failure of intelligence and failure of information. But there is no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus.”

  1. But there is no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus.

    Which is why Petraeus will suddenly disappear in the very near future, into hiding or something a bit more permanent.

  2. There is one good aspect to this; an affair means that even the liberal mainstream media will have to cover the story.

  3. Best news I have heard all day.

    Also, since the affair is “out”, the leftists have nothing to hold over Petraeus’ head.

  4. He testified once, and he didn’t tell the truth, why would a second time be any different.

    A sex scandal was good enough to divert attention from Clinton’s crimes at his Senate trial that he was acquitted. Yeah, a diversionary sex scandal is always good so as to get at the truth of government corruption.

  6. This “affair” should have been small potatoes. However, because it is the Obama regime and Democrats who did the digging and held the dirt file on Petreus I am prepared to have a guess that the reason he told that original story in Congress is that the affair was being held over his head. He went along with it, probably thinking that Obama would be defeated. However, the election was stolen and Obama retains power. So, Petreus has a meeting at the White House. There were probably words, a lot of shouting, threats… including the affair which is the blackmail being used to make him go along with the Administration story. The only way to stop the blackmail is to out himself telling everyone about the affair so that it no longer has any kind of power over him. Was it a smart move? I do not know… BUT if Petreus now seeks a private debriefing with Congress just like the guy who gave the goods on Fast and Furious, then you can expect more fireworks.

  7. I hope he clears his name and sends Obama down the river.

    hmmm, maybe Petreaus outfoxed them by putting this issue up front,
    now they can’t make him jump so to speak, as now they have nothing
    to blackmail him with, well, except for assassination of either he or his
    loved ones anyways, of which a lot of has have been taking place, we
    just don’t hear about them because the media has been blocked from
    reporting them via their own by their own governments, not just US..

    here is an example..

  9. Lets organize a massive march on the White House to demand an end to the deceptions and lies.

    We need to let these SOB’s know that we will take no more.

    oops, forgot to edit..

    that said..

    just take a listen to the pompass O’bobbleheads speak as if
    they’ve privileged insight in to what makes the General tick.. :roll:

    ==

  11. We should picket the White House every day until Benghazi justice is done. 4 dead. Broken trust.

    We should not Stand Down.

  12. ++

    perhaps a dumb question, perhaps not,
    but whichever, i’m asking it anyways..

    what the heck does Petreaus have to do
    with the Benghazi “stand down order”??

    re: #14 November 10, 2012 at 1:07 am bg

    thought Hillary claimed that one.. /s/

  14. They need to also subpoena Hillary Clinton. I heard on talk radio that she was lawyered up with the best in the country, and she has documentation and emails as backup to clear her. Her documentation may be necessary to verify other testimony. However, apparently Hillary has declared herself “unavailable” for the hearings.

  15. Petraeus should have knowledge of the Stand Down order. It was HIS guys under fire, Woods and Doherty were CIA. If his guys were to be cut loose and hung out to dry, Petraeus would be acutely aware of it.

    Problem was, this wasn’t just a random CIA operation gone bad. It was a consulate or “diplomatic mission” and a raped/dead ambassador. Obama did NOT make a Gutsy Call.

    thanks.

    re: the gutsy call..

    oh i know that, he didn’t even give
    the order in the bin Laden fiasco..

    and again, perhaps a dumb question..

    if he is responsible in any way, wouldn’t he have
    been i involved in the Obama Osama drama??

    [if the link skips to code, click on go back one page, i copied
    saved the entire article because it keeps being sucked up by
    Obama's black hole machine]
