She testified for 11 hours before the Benghazi Committee



https://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/10/22/451012235/clinton-endures-an-11-hour-grilling-before-benghazi-committee

Mark Meadows, Kash Patel, Dan Scavino and Stephen K. Bannon are cowards and TFG is the biggest coward on this terrestrial ball.

A special large dose of cowardice and hypocrisy on Mark Meadows part. Representative Mark Meadows, was singing a very different tune in 2014, when Republicans opened a barrage of investigations targeting the Obama administration in the run-up to the midterm elections, by saying, “Really what most Americans want is that justice is served.”

5. I see an additional important point beyond the gangsterism

and culpability of the TFG. I also see her testimony as a continuation of the respect for the institutions of our system of government. The ability to stand for questioning and testify is part and parcel of constitutional accountability as well as serving as a mechanism for the clarification of actions of governmental officials.

The fact that the simple act of testifying becomes a brave action rather than expected one illuminates a deep seated lack of respect for our whole Constitutional framework. As a lawyer she knew how the system is supposed to work and ,while she had nothing to hide, she bowed to the requirement of testimony. It amazes me how far the other party has allowed fundamental government oversight to atrophy. It seems we have now come full circle with her work on the Watergate Committee where Executive Privilege met its match.

6. Yes, +1000! Belief in our institutions and our duty to uphold them.

Although the other side didn't exactly "allow oversight to atrophy." They've been deliberately destroying it and at the same time increasing the authoritarian powers of the presidency, beginning in the last century but revving up big time with Bush II.

Hillary really has been a witness through this remarkable history. And John Dean's been writing about the growth of authoritarianism and abuses of power in the Republican Party durng the same time.

7. So true! Atrophy is way too weak a

word. Deliberate destruction is much better and more accurate. Her history is incredible and John Dean was right on the money. Great points.

13. Some people Dean wrote about are still involved. (!) I guess if

you know what a person respects (for real) you know most of what he's about.

9. On loathing Hillary

Do you think a bunch of wackjobs woke one day to realize gee Hilary Clinton is a monster!

NO! One of the most experienced, qualified, and knowledgeable Presidential candidates was taken down by a decades long, well-planned, heavily funded character assassinations of all time.

11. They are not fit to be seen in the same room as her.

They're not even man enough to show themselves and answer to the nation they still want to ruin.

Mark bullyboy Meadows, Kash bagman Patel, Dan twitterman Scavino, Steve nihilist Bannon, the sick rot hiding from the light of democratic rule of law.

15. Hillary has more intelligence and integrity than...

The whole freaking corrupt G.O.P. and it's Q whackos, even if you added in their intimate and darkside dark-op Russian troll and bot buddies.

How DEPLORABLE to be a cowardly, traitorous, lying Republican. America farts in your general direction. And then America will lock your lying, cheating, betraying asses up in THE SLAMMER.
