Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails, CBS News Report Claims

Source: Huffington Post

One day after The White House released 100 pages of Benghazi emails, a report has surfaced alleging that Republicans released a set with altered text.

CBS News reported Thursday that leaked versions sent out by the GOP last Friday had visible differences than Wednesday's official batch. Two correspondences that were singled out in the report came from National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes and State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

The GOP version of Rhodes' comment, according to CBS News: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

The White House email: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

33. no, no, no, you have it ALL wrong...

see what the GOP were doing was TRANSLATING all of Obama's big, Harvard liberal WORDS, in order to make it easier for all us good CONServatives to actually UNDERSTAND the cover-up taking place before our very eyes. And that's not illegal, because of how Patriotic it all is (kind of like Torture). God, you Liberals are sooooooo dumb. Don't you KNOW that every time you project this way, you give yourselves away for the true fools you really are? No wonder CONServatives enjoy such broad support among America's Electorate...

If I need a sarcasm tag, you are likely in the wrong corner of the intertubes.

Doubt this will get much attention though - Republicans will just cook up another scandal and the media will eat that shit up and ignore the doctoring that had to be done to create this scandal.

The Democrats hold the Senate. Why don't the Democratic Senate hold investigations on the Republican Congress. And if you want to be specific, on Issa and Chaffetz abuse of power and using hearings to manufacture evidence. And why wouldn't this turn into a criminal investigation led by the DOJ based on those reports from the media about altering those emails as evidence from the White house sent to Issa's committee? Why isn't this a conspiracy by Issa to mislead the public and the Press?

64. Bengazi-gate was Republican projection

Wasn't their initial charge that the White House altered talking points to improperly influence the public?

I'm pretty sure that colluding with a major news organization to leak and alter evidence from a congressional investigation in order to present to the public would be an even bigger deal.

I don't understand why Democrats in Congress aren't demanding an investigation? They need to put an end to the Republicans false narratives.
