No....Benghazi is a pretty well settled matter....It was a White House/State Department cluster fuck...And Susan Rice is a Liar...

But I would sure like to see this go back into Hillary's e-mails and did Obama and Loretta Lynch commit obstruction of Justice...

And you know all kinds of things that all those expensive Republican Congresscritters couldn't figure out with all the resources available to them.

But alas, they didn't have your biases and preconceived ideas to guide their conclusion.

Who the fuck said I did..?? If I did, I wouldn't be asking the question.... Comey did not tell the Congress critters that he was taking memos on all his communications, did he??...Now he says he did....But did he do it only when he talked to Trump, or was it a matter of procedure for him As in his comunications with Loretta Lynch and Obama??..or is he full of shit and never took a memo on his conversation with Trump....And if he did why didn't immediately notify the attorney General?? and risk violating statute himself...

Apparently you don't go to many meetings, Jim. If you did you would notice that many/most attendees take notes. I attended hundreds of meetings in my profession and never without my legal pad and eventually my laptop.
Comey and others in the intel community said it is common practice to take notes. Comey also said that he took notes in his meetings with Obama, but the meetings were so routine that he didn't see the need. So, yes. It was a matter of procedure--common practice, etc.
I have no idea why he didn't notify the AG--maybe he did? But if he was building a case, Comey probably thought he needed more time/info before he took it to the AG. I'm sure that question will be asked and answered when he testifies.
Thanks from Camelot

Good Morning Clara....I am very active in the American Legion and the VFW....I attend waaaay too many meetings....My AM Legion Post is probably the only one in the country that still has 1 meeting a week..... And this year I have been the acting Adjutant, I am also the County Council Adjutant, so don't lecture me on taking notes at meetings......btw...I am an AM Legion District Chaplain, a VFW Post Chaplain and a VFW District Chaplain.....I was one very very busy duck over the Memorial Day weekend...

Now didn't you notice a trace of sarcasm when I said did he take memos??...Of course he did....So, if you want the Senate to investigate him, don't you think they should go alllllll the way back to Oba,ma and Loretta Lynch meetings....I would hope so....because that is the likely place for the "obstruction of justice " charges...

Or perhaps they have a reason to investigate the Trump related stuff but don't have a reason to go allllllllllllllllllllllll the way back.

But of course, given your confirmational bias, you can't see that.

Well, take this with a grain of salt...I saw this yesterday about Joe Scarborough, and he's claiming to have inside knowledge of the White House (but can't reveal his sources)

dailymail.co.uk
'Morning Joe' says Steve Bannon is LEAKING Kushner stories
'Morning Joe' says Steve Bannon is LEAKING Kushner stories | Daily Mail Online

'Morning Joe' co-host Joe Scarborough claimed Friday morning that presidential strategist Steve Bannon is now effectively running the country – uttering the phrase 'President Bannon' seven times in 35 seconds for dramatic effect.

And he said Bannon, not U.S. intelligence agencies, is behind a series of embarrassing leaks about Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner's alleged Russia ties.

'Steve Bannon has been leaking – I believe, based on everything that I've heard – has been leaking these stories,' Scarborough said.

'People very close to Steve Bannon were telling me before the stories were leaked that he was going to be leaking these stories.'

'Two days after I heard this – two days! – [there was a] front-page New York Times story about the links between Kushner and Russia,' he added. 'A coincidence? Absolutely not.'

White House Chief Strategist Steven Bannon, pictured Thursday in the Rose Garden, is the source of leaks that have damaged presidential adviser Jared Kushner, according to 'Morning Joe' co-host Joe Scarborough

Scarborough (right) said Friday that he heard from Bannon insiders that stories would be leaked – and then days later saw that his tipsters were right

Kushner, pictured Friday morning outside his Washington, D.C. home, is President Trump's son-in-law and one of the most senior policy aides in the White House

Two White House correspondents confirmed on Friday that Bannon has fed them negative information about Kushner in the past – but wouldn't say when, or whether they had used the dirt in their published reporting.

Bannon did not respond to a request for comment about Scarborough's accusation.

Palace-intrigue stories about tensions among Bannon, Kushner and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus have been plentiful since President Donald Trump took office in late January.

Some accounts describe a zero-sum-game atmosphere inside the West Wing, with the three top aides undercutting each other in the hope of creating power vacuums ripe for filling.

'He has a job and wants to keep it,' MSNBC panelist Mark Halperin said Friday of a scheming Bannon, 'and will do what's necessary to do that.'

Most recently, Kushner has faced tough questions about a meeting last year with the KGB-trained CEO of a Russian bank under U.S. government sanctions.

The Kremlin has framed the meeting as 'ordinary business,' saying the two were discussing a real estate venture and nothing more.

Kushner was also rumored to have sought a back-channel means of communication with Moscow in the weeks between the November election and the January inauguration.

While The Washington Post touted the story as a major scoop, diplomats and intelligence experts were quick to point out that it's a common practice for the U.S. government.

Scarborough, though, seemed more consumed with Bannon's role in Trump's decision Thursday to pull out of the 195-nation Paris global warming treaty.

The centrist former Republican congressman-turned-TV-host slammed the outcome as a triumph of Bannon's conservative nationalism over Kushner's more moderate political thinking.

'What we saw yesterday is Time Magazine was right. Steve Bannon is president of the United States,' he said, referring to a February cover story that branded Bannon 'the great manipulator.'

'Donald Trump doesn't know anything about policy. Donald Trump doesn't know anything about politics. Donald Trump doesn't know anything about anything,' Scarborough alleged.

'He can get up and give a good speech. You listen to him talk about any topic and he wanders from sentence to sentence to sentence. So Steve Bannon is now the President of the United States. And that was more clear yesterday than ever before.'

Later, Scarborough vented that by siding with Bannon on the Paris pullout, Trump was shooting himself in the foot politically.

By then, however, Trump's name was nowhere to be found in the host's rhetoric.

'President Bannon is on the wrong side of the majority,' he declared.

'President Bannon may be right when President Bannon is looking at President Bannon's primary base. But when President Bannon is looking at the overall scope of American voters – you can talk about the past three decades – President Bannon's not even reading the polls right for today.'

Scarborough said Trump's decision would ultimately be seen as a sop to 'a small subset of the population that President Bannon's obsessing on' in order to secure re-election.
