The judge appointed by Barack Obama who put Paul Manafort in jail this week previously cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility for the deaths of four American servicemen in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Manafort was put in jail for allegedly engaging in witness tampering, but most people see the jailing as a fraud to divert public attention away from the IG report that slammed James Comey and bolstered President Donald Trump’s arguments against the corrupt Deep State.
Amy Berman Jackson, a past Bill Clinton donor and federal judge, threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by Sean Smith’s mother Patricia Smith and Tyrone Woods’ father Charles Woods. The lawsuit claimed that Hillary Clinton revealing the location of Ambassador Stevens on her non-secure private email server prior to Stevens’ murder put their dead children in harm’s way.
Politico reported in 2017: “Jackson dismissed the wrongful death portion of the suit on technical grounds after granting the State Department’s motion to step in as the defendant on those claims. The Obama-appointed judge concluded Clinton used her email in the course of her official duties.”
Hillary Clinton has never had to face justice for overseeing the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, in which those Americans received no help from her in a time of dire need. It has been conclusively proven that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi trying to buy back weapons that Obama and Clinton were funneling into Syria to help rebel groups, including the group that became ISIS.
Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis told a Senate Committee adviser that House Speaker Paul Ryan “put the leash” on the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation into Hillary Clinton.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, who headed the Commission, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, both confirmed to the adviser that Ryan effectively shut the investigation down, Big League Politics has exclusively learned.
This revelation has big implications for the “Russia” investigation dogging President Donald Trump’s administration. Gowdy took over as one of the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee probe into alleged Trump-Russia campaign collusion after California Rep. Devin Nunes removed himself from the investigation. Nunes angered anti-Trumpers for backing up some of the White House’s claims on surveillance and Russia. The media targeted Nunes for briefing the White House on some of his findings before he announced them publicly. Ryan ultimately decided that Nunes should be taken off the investigation, saying that Nunes’ problems “would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election.” Some Republican congressmen are already bashing Nunes’ claims that the Trump transition team was surveilled.
Gowdy became one of the leaders of the investigation, along with Reps. Mike Conaway and Tom Rooney. But Gowdy’s history of taking orders from Ryan does not bode well for Trump, considering that Ryan is a fierce Trump critic behind the scenes with a very different agenda than the president.
Ryan‘s maneuverings in the Benghazi case occurred at the same time that he was shoring up support to take over from John Boehner as House Speaker.
Gowdy‘s interrogation of Clinton before the Commission was massively hyped but produced little actual results, instead allowing Clinton to come off calm, composed, and prepared while sitting for eleven hours of testimony. Rolling Stone called the hearing “Republicans’ 11-Hour Gift To Hillary Clinton.“
Clinton’s testimony occurred in October 2015, before Paul Ryan‘s rival Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee or even won a single primary or caucus.
The hearing also indirectly led to the political downfall of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who said during a Sean Hannity interview that the purpose of the Commission was to affect Clinton’s poll numbers. McCarthy’s bid to take over as House Speaker collapsed.

SAD: George Soros Names President Obama His “Greatest Disappointment”
He praised John McCain, though.
Billionaire left-wing mega-donor George Soros stated that former President Barack Obama was his “greatest disappointment” during an interview with the New York Times. The wide-ranging interview was largely based on his understanding that he’s losing big in the Trump era. Soros also used his time to praise Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), affirming his commitment to promoting bipartisanship.
His harsh statements about Barack Obama was based on around his belief that the former President “closed the door” on him after getting into office. Soros said he had great hopes that Obama would consult him on economic and financial issues, but that the President was more inclined to “woo his opponents” while taking his supporters for granted. Soros was a major supporter of Obama, giving millions to support his candidacy.
In the interview, the billionaire recalled the post-election phone call where Obama thanked him for his support, stating that it “was meant to last for five minutes,” but that he “dragged it out to eight minutes.” That call was likely the moment that Soros realized that Obama only cares about himself, seeing him as nothing more than a tool to gain power.
But while much of Soros’ time was used to express his disappointment in Obama, he did have positive words to say about Sen. John McCain. He stated that he feels that the Republican party should reform itself and become more moderate, clearly seeing people like McCain as a positive influence towards that goal.
Soros also praised other moderate Republicans, specifically citing Sens. Lisa Murkoski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME). He even went so far as to state that he would be inclined to give them financial support before backing away from that statement, saying that his donation “would hurt them.”
George Soros is perhaps the most influential political donor on the left. Recently he spent millions of dollars to support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, and has since then funded numerous “resistance” groups designed to stop President Donald Trump from implementing his agenda.
As for his future plans at the Presidential level, he was unsure what he would do, declining to say if he would back Bernie Sanders (I-VT) if he were to run. The only thing he made clear is that going forward, he will most likely become less influential to Democrats, stating: “I don’t particularly want to be a Democrat.”
