House leader: Of course Benghazi probe was intended to damage Hillary

Posted By on Wed, Sep 30, 2015 at 1:14 PM

It'll be interesting to see what the mainstream media makes of a blunt admission by would-be House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on the purpose of the never-ending Benghazi investigation now that he's admitted the obvious. From Joe Conason for those who always suspected a pure political motive:

But on the evening of Sept. 29, the amiably dim Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) fully vindicated those original suspicions during an interview on Fox with Sean Hannity. Attempting to defend the departing Boehner, whom he is touted to succeed as Speaker, McCarthy highlighted what he considers the outstanding achievement of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?” said eager beaver McCarthy. “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.” Or in plain English: We brought down Hillary Clinton’s polling numbers by dispatching a select committee to pursue her – and Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman, has done a great job! The equally dim Hannity naturally agreed.

UPDATE: Now he's walking at back. Truth hurts.
