StopHillaryPAC - Benghazi Bombshell  

 I'm going to make this quick and to the point.

Trey Gowdy just announced the Benghazi Select Committee will begin hearings in less than one month!

Here is what we know for sure: Trey Gowdy is about to come under a tremendous attack from Hillary Clinton's campaign apparatus and the pro-Hillary media.

Gowdy and the Committee are moving forward with their investigation, despite tremendous opposition from the White House, Hillary Clinton and the media.

But here is what we don't know: will Hillary be forced testify under oath?

AND THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN...no subpoena has been issued for Hillary Clinton yet -- meaning Hillary is still off the hook.

That's why I'm asking you to click here immediately to sign on to our Citizens Subpoena of Hillary.

You and I must bring the full force of the American people behind Trey Gowdy's Benghazi Select Committee AND ensure Gowdy knows that he has the moral authority of the American people behind him.

We need to collect 200,000 signatures for this emergency Citizens Subpoena.

If Hillary escapes a Subpoena from the Benghazi Select Committee, she will have gotten away, AGAIN!

According to our sources, the hearings will be held in early September. And after months of silence from the Committee, Hillary's allies and the media have had the time to apply immense political pressure to Chairman Trey Gowdy.

You and I must show Trey Gowdy that he has our support - and the support of the American people.

Will you sign the Citizen's Subpoena of Hillary by clicking here?

I know Congressman Gowdy is committed to the truth, but if we cannot protect him from Hillary's political assassins, another American will fall victim to the Clinton political machine.

If we gather 200,000 signatures on this Subpoena, we can show Trey and the media -- Hillary will not escape the court of public opinion AND SHE WILL NOT ESCAPE HER RESPONSIBILITY FOR BENGHAZI.

Please, stop what you are doing and immediately sign your Citizens Subpoena for Hillary right away.

And if you can, chip in $10 to help us fight to ensure Hillary is held accountable.

Join me in demanding answers!

For the truth,

Ted Harvey
Chairman, Stop Hillary PAC

NHDP - House Speaker Votes to Give Himself Power to Jail NH Citizens

Concord, NH - During the debate on the HB655 last week, House Republicans offered an amendment that would give the Republican House Speaker Bill O'Brien subpoena power and the ability to throw New Hampshire citizens in jail for five days.  While the amendment was voted down 205 to 136, Speaker O'Brien cast just his 4th roll call vote of the entire year in favor of the overreaching amendment.

 

"The House Republican agenda has gone from morally reprehensible, to fiscally irresponsible, and now back again," said Harrell Kirstein press secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "Even with bills that would repeal kindergarten and the state budget that has killed over 1,500 jobs, giving Speaker O'Brien the unilateral power to subpoena and imprison law abiding New Hampshire citizens might be the most reckless idea from this out of touch bunch yet."

 

Testimony from the floor made clear that the New Hampshire Constitution gives the power to issue and enforce subpoenas to the New Hampshire House of Representatives and Senate not to the presiding officers of either body. Additionally, New Hampshire RSA 516:7 outlines the penalty for "neglecting or refusing to appear" at the request of a subpoena "shall be guilty of a violation, and may be ordered to pay costs." It makes no mention of an individual being ordered to spend any time in prison.

 

Video of the debate over the reckless amendment on the House floor can be found here. It begins at the 3:18:00 mark. The full text of the amendment to HB 655 can be found below. Speaker O'Brien's roll call votes can he found here.

 

 

Amendment to HB 655

(2011-2621h)

Proposed by the Committee on Ways and Means - R

 

Amend section 3 of the bill by replacing paragraph II with the following:

 

            II.  The committee shall have the same investigatory powers as the general court. The committee may take evidence under oath, issue subpoenas duces tecum for records, and issue subpoenas to compel testimony.  A person shall have 5 business days to respond to any subpoena issued in accordance with this section.  Upon approval of the speaker of the house of representatives and the president of the senate, any person who fails to respond within the 5-day period may be fined up to $10,000 per day and may be subject to 5 days imprisonment.
