Report: GOP Senators Won’t Confirm Kerry until Clinton Testifies on Benghazi (Video)

“WHERE IS SHE?” the Drudge headline roared this morning, linking to this Weekly Standard’s post.

On December 15, the day after the day after the shooting at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, State Department officials notified the press that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had fallen ill. “While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion,” deputy assistant secretary Philippe Reines said in a statement to the press.

Since then, Clinton does not appear to have been sighted in public.
Republicans on Capitol Hill don’t want Hillary to leave town until she’s testified on her role in the Benghazi debacle.

Joe Gehrke of the Washington Examiner passed along this The Cable report:

Republican senators will refuse to confirm Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., as Secretary of State until the nation’s current top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, testifies about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

“The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” The Cable’s Josh Rogin notes.

Clinton backed out of testifying at a congressional hearing last week after fainting and suffering a concussion. She was the first cabinet-level official to acknowledge that terrorists played a role in the assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

Democrat strategist, (please!) Pat Caddell suggested that the Senate sit on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies, over the weekend on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Fox show, Justice With Jeanine

He noted that if the White House had concocted the YouTube video story, and “Susan Rice was willing to lie at the drop of a hat”, where was Hillary?  He’d like to see Clinton questioned under oath about whether she was asked to go on the Sunday shows, and if not, why not.

    I for one think it’s high time someone get to the bottom of Hillary’s medical situation. I’m very concerned. For all anyone knows she may be laying somewhere with another concussion and in desperate need. This is the Secretary of State after all, where has she been? At least Bubba got out there stuck his finger in our collective faces and lied to us.

    Obozo isn’t available for any 3am phone calls and it seems Hillary isn’t available for the 3pm ones!

    A couple of fantastic recent lines regarding Hillary:

    “No one has heard anything from Hillary since her immaculate concussion” – Laura Ingraham

    “A series of actions doesn’t necessarily establish a pattern, but it definitely establishes a line” – Ambassador John Bolton [talking about Hillary’s no show appearances on Sunday talk shows & the Benghazi hearings]

    […] Unfortunately, this means that Obama can appoint yet another hardcore progressive who hates Americans having affordable energy. Perhaps Republican Senators can take a hard line on whoever is nominated, like they did with Susan Rice, and are doing with John Kerry (via Nice Deb) […]

    Doesn’t that filmmaker have a legal argument that he could not POSSIBLY have gotten a fair trial, with Hillary stating that they were targeting him as well as both Hillary and Obama condemning him publicly?

    Also, how was this admin involved in his prosecution, which they clearly must have been?

    Finally: Note dear People, the Fort Hood Shooter, Nidal Hassan, has not yet been prosecuted and has been, I believe, collecting pay & benefits for all these YEARS for his heinous acts of “workplace violence”.

    Could the anti-Americanism be more blatant??

    Yep – All of those points should have been hammered hard by Republicans before the election. Now we’re stuck with 4 more years of it.

    Maybe she’s afraid to be publicly indicted for her part in the deaths of our Ambassador and three other Americans. She did say she would accept responsibility. It sounds like an admission of guilt to me.
