MSNBC: Benghazi Scandal Makes White House 'Look Terrible,' Possibly 'Impeachment Issue'

5/10/13 - After examining all the details that emerged on Friday relating to the efforts by members of President Barack Obama's administration to remove references to Islamic terrorism when explaining the reasons behind the 2012 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi, the panel guests on MSNBC's Now agreed that the appearance of a scandal makes the White House "look terrible." One guest even suggested that the controversy could lead to impeachment proceedings against the president.

NBC Reporter Kelly O'Donnell read from portions of emails in which high ranking State Department officials coordinated with the CIA to alter the official talking points on the Benghazi attack to remove any references to prior warnings or Islamic terrorism.

"This is quite the window into what is usually the hush-hush process about how to deal with these types of attacks and the spin that irrevocably comes afterwards," NBC reporter Luke Russert opined.

"This is not good for the White House right now," Russert said to BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith. "Does it stick?"

"Well, sure," Smith replied. "They look terrible."

Smith said that the emails indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been directly involved in the process of "scrubbing" references to Islamic terrorism from her department's talking points.

"Does this become then an election politics thing?" Russert asked. He said that the Republican Party has been trying to link Clinton to the Benghazi scandal for some time.

The Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky said it does. He invoked "that word that starts with 'I'" to describe the potentially significant political fallout that could result from the Benghazi scandal.

"It becomes a potentially impeachment issue as long as the Republicans are in control of the House," Tomasky added.

"I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian," submitted Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson. "It also, I think, reminds us that there is only one person that the far right-wing hates more than Obama, and that's Hillary Clinton."

The Benghazi coverup is a symbol of this administration.

Yes we need to get them on the video LIE because that LIE violated an American citizen's 1st Amendment RIGHT and exposed his identity against his will making him a marked "American" and led to his unconstitutional arrest. Plus is he STILL in prison?

The arrest of this American Citizen because of a LIE is more dangerous! Think about it! In Cali they passed a law about if you have a felony record you can't have a gun....what if the government could willy nillly arrest us based on LIES without probable cause or a fair trial??????? Good-bye gun!

Where are the Constitutional lawyers? Don't we have ANY??????

If the testimony get worse for Obama/Clinton, and the msm get up and starts doing its job, Obama will have to resign. General Carter Hamm, the commander of the African Command was ordered to fire a fellow general who was ready to respond to Benghazi, but ordered not to, and was then himself, fired. Hamm was responsible ONLY to the president..I hope these senators are asking the witnesses to name names. Eventually I believe it will pass Hilary Clinton, and go right to Obama's doorstep. If it does........

MSNBC, Benghazi makes White House look terrible? How about thinking it is a crime to lie and deceive the American people and this has been going on from the beginning of Obama's fake tenure.

People who go against Marxist regimes have a way of turning up dead from "natural causes." Still, there has to be someone or some group who would like to go down in the history books as having had the temerity to actually do the right thing for the country. We shall see.
