Susan Estrich, in her May 26 column, sought to absolve Obama from any responsibility for Benghazi by invoking Clinton’s sad abuse of a young intern and his impeachment, connecting it to the tragic death of four Americans. As sad as Clinton’s behavior was, his impeachable offense was for lying under oath and has nothing to do with Benghazi.
In the case of Obama and Benghazi, was there a cover up in the White House or State Department until after the election? As a respected attorney, Susan Estrich knows that is the legal issue yet to be determined.
As far as saying Clinton is “a whole lot more popular” today than Gingrich, it is debatable and just more extraneous commentary — again having nothing to do with the Benghazi legal issue.
