Rule of law. It’s the most basic foundation our of constitutional republic. Rule of law = civilization. And yet the Obama administration increasingly is on a path of anarchy and destruction.
Obama should compel Kerry to testify, but not only won’t he, he will use Kerry as an example when he is subpoenaed.
It’s only a matter of time until the people take to the streets.
“John Kerry won’t comply with Benghazi subpoena, State Dept. says,” CBS news, May 6, 2014
Secretary of State John Kerry won’t comply with the subpoena he received to appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on May 21 because he will be out of the country that day, a State Department spokesman said Monday.
Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., subpoenaed Kerry to testify before the committee about the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead, but Kerry has plans to be in Mexico on the day of the hearing, spokesman Marie Harf told reporters.
“We were all surprised, quite frankly, that instead of working with us and reaching out to us and offering first an invitation to testify, that Chairman Issa jumped immediately to subpoenaing the Secretary,” Harf said.
Issa said in a statement last week that he was subpoenaing Kerry because the State Department had failed to produce all the documents related to the Benghazi attack and the State Department’s response to it. “Compliance with a subpoena for documents is not a game,” Issa said.

Editor’s Update 5-7-2014 9:00AM: It has come to my attention that John Kerry reversed his stance yesterday, at least somewhat. I was unaware of this. Here is a link to read about Kerry’s change of heart. Please note that he did not say he will now testify on the 21st of May. It is unclear if that will happen or if a compromise will be sought. My gut feeling is that we will see a war of words that lead to stall tactics. Don’t forget what happened when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was subpoenaed. -Dean Garrison, Editor
