#3 Clapper's power as DNI depends on the White House.

#4 Unless he was TOLD to remove it, and he testifies to the fact under oath, I don't believe it.

#5 "The intelligence community assessed from the very beginning that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack." DNI spokesman Shawn Turner tells CBS News. That information was shared at a classified level -- which Rice, as a member of President Obama's cabinet, would have been privy to.

In other words:
1) When Rice appeared on those 5 news shows, she was knowingly spreading disinformation.
2) She is not out of the woods as there was no operational reason for this deception, only political.

#6 I think the Obama admin will invoke exec priv to keep Clapper from testifying. Since they used exec priv in the Fast&Furious case and got away with it, this would be consistent.

#7 I don't see why Ogabe would invest the effort to continue covering up any questionable activities from his first term. He won the election. Hardly matters now. The Democratic-controlled Senate will never convict him if he's impeached.
