RNC Statement On The House Benghazi Report

RNC Statement On The House Benghazi Report

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the report issued today by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which interviewed 81 new witnesses and uncovered 75,000 new documents to provide the most detailed account of the 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans:

“The new information in the majority’s report on the Benghazi terrorist attack makes clear that Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration engaged in a politically-motivated cover up weeks before the 2012 presidential election. Hillary Clinton knew the night of the attack it had nothing to do with an internet video, and yet she shamefully peddled this false narrative to the American public and to the victims’ families. This in itself is a disqualifying act of deception.

“This report also sheds new light on the systemic security failures of the Clinton State Department, which repeatedly refused requests for additional security in Benghazi and left diplomatic outposts in other troubled parts of the world vulnerable to attack. Hillary Clinton was in charge, knew the risks and did nothing. Together the report’s findings make clear we cannot afford to let Hillary Clinton be our next commander-in-chief.”

Hillary Clinton I TPP “The Gold Standard” GOP

WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new video entitled “The Gold Standard,” which uses never before seen footage uncovered by the RNC to highlight Hillary Clinton’s brazen and transparent flip-flop on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.

As Secretary of State, Clinton heaped praise on TPP, calling it the “gold standard in trade agreements,” and publicly supported the trade deal at least 45 times. Now that she’s campaigning for President, Clinton has shamelessly flip-flopped, claiming she opposes the very same trade deal she fought so hard to promote as Secretary of State.

“Hillary Clinton’s flip-flop on TPP is the wholesale abandonment of a central priority of hers as Secretary of State,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Clinton’s willingness abandon core positions on a whim just because it’s politically expedient, is exactly why the American people struggling in the Obama-Clinton economy can’t trust that she’s fighting for them.”

“This November, voters will have a choice between a Washington insider who will say or do anything to get elected to distract from her stale ideas, or a proven business leader with the vision and experience to create jobs, grow wages, and bring prosperity back for all Americans.”

RNC Statement On Ex-Clinton Staffer Bryan Pagliano Pleading The Fifth 125 Times

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released th//e following statement on ex-Clinton IT staffer Bryan Pagliano invoking the Fifth Amendment 125 times today rather than answer questions under oath about Hillary Clinton’s secret email server that exposed classified information on more than 2,000 occasions:

“The fact Hillary Clinton’s former IT staffer pleaded the Fifth an astounding 125 times is another reminder of how much she has to hide and how serious the FBI’s criminal investigation really is. It’s important to remember that this wasn’t just any staffer; this was a longtime aide who obtained an unusual political appointment and was paid on the side for the sole purpose of maintaining Clinton’s illicit off-the-books server.

PRESS RELEASE: Wolf Recognizes Error, Leaving McGinty Alone Defending Massive PA Tax Hikes

For Immediate Release: June 21, 2016
Contact: Ted Kwong or Steve Kelly 484-809-7994?
Wolf Recognizes Error, Leaving McGinty Alone
Defending Massive PA Tax Hikes
North Wales,
Pa. — While Katie McGinty continues to defend her role in crafting one of the
largest tax and spend plans in Pennsylvania history, Gov.
Wolf today backtracked
on his tax hike. It should come as no surprise that it
wasn’t until after McGinty’s deeply partisan
influence was gone that the gridlock was broken, and now her
massive tax hikes are off the table as
well.
“Gov. Wolf said Tuesday he will no longer seek a hike in the
state’s personal income or sales tax to fund the state
budget. In an interview on a Pittsburgh radio station barely
a week before the July 1 budget deadline, the governor said
he believes he can achieve his priorities without having the
state take more out of people’s
paychecks. “I’m
not asking for a sales tax increase or a personal income tax
increase,’ Wolf said on KDKA-AM. ‘I think we can do
all this – a balanced budget, the increase in education and
the heroin initiatives – without a broad-based tax
increase.'” (Karen Langley,
“Wolf abandons call for hike in Pa. sales or income
taxes,” The
Philadelphia Inquirer,6/21/16)
“Now that Governor
Wolf has realized just how devastating these massive
middle-class tax hikes would be, that leaves Katie McGinty
alone in defending some of the largest tax increase plans in
Pennsylvania history,” said Toomey for Senate
spokesman Ted Kwong. “This demonstrates even
further than McGinty’s hyper-partisan influence was
toxic in Harrisburg and would be devastating in
Washington.”

BACKGROUND:
Katie McGinty Led
The Charge For
This Tax-And-Spend Budget Proposal. “With the delivery of
Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposals to legislators and
committee heads on
Wednesday, Chief of Staff
Kathleen McGinty stumped for his proposals and downplayed
criticisms.” (Christian
Alexandersen, “Gov. Tom Wolf’s chief of staff
promotes budget proposals,” The
Patriot-News, 3/11/15)
The Wolf-McGinty Budget Proposal Continue reading
