Radio host Mark Levin began his program last night with a few words of advice to the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives regarding the Petraeus scandal: “Go ahead and subpoena Petraeus – he has to show up. He can plead the fifth if he wants. But subpoena him”
Levin criticized the media for sifting through the emails of Paula Broadwell, the biographer now embroiled in a sex scandal with former CIA Director David Petraeus, instead of demanding answers from Pres. Obama about what he did after the 9/11/12 Benghazi attack:
“Right now everybody’s chasing down emails. Oh, really? What did her emails say? What did her emails say of the other woman? Oh, what about her? And I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Do you realize Barack Obama still has not told us where he was, what he did or didn’t do when our consulate was attacked in Benghazi?’ – and we’re chasing down these women and their emails.”
“I think this is a complete set up and a complete cover up and these women and Petraeus are just pawns in the whole process,” Levin said.
Levin then offered advice to the Republicans in the House of Representatives:
“Now let me give a little advice to the geniuses in the House of Representatives; that would be you Republicans: Go ahead and subpoena Petraeus – he has to show up.
“He can plead the fifth if he wants. But subpoena him. There’s not a court in the land that won’t uphold it. And subpoena Hillary Clinton; because she has no rational basis, no constitutional argument not to appear. She has to appear. Now issue your damn subpoenas and get on with it. Let’s find out what happened. You got to start picking off the senior staff around the President of the United States and then eventually you’ll get to him.”
“We still don’t know what the hell the President did or didn’t do,” Levin said.
