Judicial Watch: Jay Carney isn’t credible on Benghazi ‘smoking gun’ emails

Jay CarneyWhile appearing on Fox News, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is not credible on the emails that show Susan Rice was coached to lie about Benghazi.

Carney was confronted about the email and claimed it had nothing to do with Benghazi:

Q: Jay, I guess you’re aware that Judicial Watch obtained an email from Ben Rhodes to staff members about the Benghazi attack.

MR. CARNEY: That’s incorrect, but go ahead.

Q: Oh, OK.

MR. CARNEY: The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi. They were about the general situation in the Muslim world, where you saw, as you may recall, protests…

Here’s video of that exchange:

Judicial Watch, however, said not so fast.

I saw it at the top of the hour and I went back and checked our lawsuit to make sure that we were right. Indeed we had sued for documents about the Benghazi talking points. This document was reproduced to us in response to that lawsuit. We didn’t ask for documents about protests everywhere in the world. We asked for Benghazi talking points, we got this document from the administration, from the State Dept. in response to a specific request about Benghazi documents.

Mr. Carney is not credible here. Obviously he got a copy of the email that’s at issue here so he has some personal interest here. You’ve got questions of obstruction of Congress and misleading the American people. His credibility is on the line and he just fell into it today. It’s terrible. terrible, terrible to see.

Here’s video of that:

Did Jay Carney willingly lie?  You be the judge of that.

Meanwhile, the House seems to be dragging its feet on this issue.  Again, one has to wonder why…
