Republican House now trying to frame Obama on Benghazi
The monomania about Benghazi, which has so far come up snake eyes, is now desperately trying to involve the White House.
The committee sent Obama a list of questions, which the administration has called inappropriate and an attempt to frame the White House as uncooperative. Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, has advised Obama not to answer any questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” he said in a letter to Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).
“If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” the letter reads.
Meanwhile committee spokesman Jamal Ware criticized the White House for being unhelpful to the investigation.
