Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz said House Republicans have grown tired of the Obama administration’s attempts to stall the investigation of the Benghazi terrorist attack, and that calls for the president’s impeachment “will likely increase.”

Chaffetz, an outspoken critic of the administration’s handling of the Benghazi investigation, spoke to National Review Online’s Robert Costa about his frustration.

“They purposefully and willfully misled the American people, and that’s unacceptable,” Chaffetz told Costa. “It’s part of a pattern of deception.”

Chaffetz said he is “tired of waiting for answers” from the “self-preservationists” in the White House who continue to protect Obama from scrutiny.

“Now, [House speaker John Boehner] has more patience than I do,” Chaffetz said. “He has told me to be patient, that the truth will eventually surface. But I’m not a patient person, and if this administration makes us do this the hard way, that’s what we’ll do.”

Chaffetz spoke extensively about his investigative trip to Benghazi, Libya after the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate and complained to Costa “the heavy-handed tactics of the president’s advisers sullied his investigation from the start.”

According to the article, Chaffetz said:

They’ve obstructed me from doing my congressional duty. When I went over there, a State Department babysitter intimidated me and many others.

It was unsettling — to see, up close, the depths to which Secretary Clinton was willing to go to manipulate the process.

“Look for Chaffetz, the chairman of the oversight committee’s subcommittee on national security, to lead the fight for accountability as the controversy — and talk of impeachment proceedings — escalates,” Costa concluded.

    boh ner would rather wait for the eventual unveiling of the truth. he would rather find out much later if he should have been more supportive of seeking out the truth now. The Truth may end up affecting him,,, and we wouldn't want that.

    Jason Chaffetz is a jewish infiltrator. this is not left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is war against White people.

    Why do hostile globalist elite defend Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravage White majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

    The world is 93% non-White, only 7% White. But 3rd world colonizers are aggressively advancing their agenda to annihilate gullible Whites, just as China annihilates Tibet.

    How long will gullible Whites cuckold for murderous anti-White elite, who confiscate our guns, infiltrate/subvert our banks/FBI/CIA, indoctrinate White kids in academia/mass media, plunder White jobs/wages, & butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars?

    "Native" Americans! invaded from East Asia. Yellow & Brown races committed 10-times more genocide, slavery, imperialism than Whites. Since Old-Testament, Whites have been victims of Jewish/Crypto-Jewish, Turkic, Muslim, N.African imperialism, slavery, genocide.

    Gullible Whites should reject subversive ideologies- libertarianism/feminism/liberalism- & reject hostile slanders of racism. Peace to all humanity, but White people must organize to advance their interests, their fertility, their homelands. Spread this message. Reading list: , , ,
