The House special committee on the Benghazi attacks have been nothing but a freak show for the last several years. For years, Congressmen Darrel Issa (R-CA) and now Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have engaged in the longest Congressional Committee investigation in United States history.
Let that sink in. The investigations into the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, and 9/11 do not even come close to the “investigation” into the Libyan attack which killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
For the last two election seasons, Democrats have bashed Republicans for using these deaths as a political maneuver to hurt the image of the White House and the Democratic front-runner for President, Hillary Clinton. Republicans have asserted their commitment to “truth” is what keeps the investigation going, not a smear campaign.
Yesterday, however, Republicans exposed themselves to be hypocritical liars yet again.
Appearing on Sean Hannity, Kevin McCarthy said on air regarding the committee:
“What you’re going to see is a conservative Speaker, that takes a conservative Congress, that puts a strategy to fight and win. And let me give you one example. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee. A select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known that any of that had happened had we not fought to make that happen.”
And there were have it. “Had we not fought to make that happen.” Issa, McCarthy and the bunch of witch-hunting Republicans don’t care about Ambassador Stevens or the three others who lost their lives in Libya. Their only concern was to hurt Hillary in the polls.
While Republicans have paraded around the grieving families of the victims as pawns in their anti-Hillary campaign, McCarthy’s remarks show just how little human compassion these clowns have for people affected by tragedy.
