GOP’s anti-Planned Parenthood panel descends into ‘farce’

As ridiculous as the House Republicans’ Benghazi committee has become, at least the GOP’s investigation is scrutinizing a real event. Sure, by Republicans’ own admission, the entire exercise is a partisan political stunt. And sure, the events in Benghazi in 2012 have already been investigated by seven other congressional committees. But at its root, four Americans died in a terrorist attack that actually happened.
The existence of the House Republicans’ anti-Planned Parenthood committee is arguably tougher to defend.
The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank highlighted the latest antics of the panel’s far-right chair, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), who “isn’t one to worry about appearances.
The Tennessee Republican didn’t make any pretense this week of being impartial with the committee she chairs, the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, commonly known as the Planned Parenthood committee.
On the eve of her panel’s Wednesday’s hearing, Blackburn went over to Georgetown University to participate in a protest against Planned Parenthood, the very entity she
Committee Republicans not only didn’t care, they also based much of yesterday’s discussion around materials no one could substantiate.

If there’s a credible defense for such a reckless waste of Congress’ time, it’s hiding well.

Actually Planned Parenthood getting busted selling Fetal tissue for profit and the GOPs investigation into PP's illegal selling of fetal tissue for a profit did lead to something postive

And the investigations aren't over
http://thehill.com/policy/healthcar...-longer-accept-reimbursement-for-fetal-tissue

Planned Parenthood has stopped taking " donations " for Fetal tissue. Imagine that.

I wonder why ? Since they were doing nothing wrong in the first place

And the Benghazi investigations uncovered Hillary's private Email server. That led to her lying to to Millions of Americans ( did it so she could carry only one device ) and her being under a current Criminal FBI investigation.

So there's nothing ridiculous about these investigations at all. They have yielded exceptional results !!

Sorry Mr. Fenton ...

Seems those claims of selling parts and all the other claims charged in the undercover video record were doctored..........and those responsible are being tried in Court as we speak for their criminal acts...........


Planned Parenthood cleared, but 2 indicted over videos - Houston Chronicle
“Texas grand jury indicts pair behind Planned Parenthood videos

“A Harris County grand jury probe into Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast ended Monday with the indictments of two anti-abortion activists.

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted for tampering with a governmental record. An additional indictment for prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs was issued for Daleiden, according to a release from the Harris County District Attorneys Office.
“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” said Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”

Daleiden and Merritt were involved in undercover videos that surfaced last year appearing to show a Planned Parenthood official discussing reimbursement fees associated with fetal tissue procurement and donation.

When this story broke the traditional mainstream media ran with the story. Now that the criminals that ran the setup have been indicted one hopes they will start the vindicating process for Planned Parenthood.

The videos and all those claims were not true and also broke the law

BTW

What is the crime of making (and lets give you the benefit of your premise she lied) a public statement a crime of perjury, so to speak...........where the crime?

No...PP did NOT sell any tissue. Please...show me what state investigation came to that conclusion.

Repeating a lie over and over won't make it so.

Who cares? Texas is dominated by radical liberals who are pushing an agenda.

Oh thats right, they took " donations "...Lol

If there was nothing wrong with what they were doing, why did they stop taking " donations " ???

Planned Parenthood stops taking money for fetal tissue donations | TheHill

Do you have the state investigation that came to the conclusion that PP sold fetal tissue?

Of course you don't. And we won't let you continue to repeat that lie.
