All Benghazi (and e-mails) all day with Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton testifies today before the House committee using Benghazi as a prextext to destroy Clinton's presidential candidacy.

It's being streamed live many places, including on NBC.

It's opening with a lengthy defense by Chair Trey Gowdy of his hit job. All those other investigations weren't thorough because, see, it's all about the e-mail.

Clinton begins with a recitation of other attacks in embassies and administrations and responses. She mentions Congress' failure to approve some recommended security changes. She urged the pane to "put national security ahead of politics and ideology." She said:

"We should resist denigrating the patriotism and loyalty of those with whom we disagree."

UPDATE: After the morning session, I'd say Clinton kept her cool while Republicans ranted over old ground, particularly Sidney Blumenthal.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
