These are the people accusing the GOP of politicizing Benghazi. Clearly this dolt realizes the more we actually find out about what went down that fateful night the more it damages the woman Democrats have anointed for 2016. So who are the fearful ones here?
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) chided Republicans Tuesday for conducting a “political witch hunt” by requesting a Senate select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack.
“I urge Sen. [Harry] Reid to say a very clear ‘no’ to the request by 37 Republicans that we create a new Senate select committee on Benghazi,” Boxer said on the Senate floor. “We don’t need to spend money on another committee because someone is afraid of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.”
Clinton is expected to be the Democratic candidate for president in 2016.
Boxer, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said House Republicans’ formation of a select committee was a “political witch hunt” designed to rally support ahead of the November mid-term elections and damage a potential presidential candidate.
She might want to watch using the words “Hillary” and “witch” together. Just saying.
“To spend the funds for this separate committee in addition to the House committee doesn’t make sense unless you believe, as I do, that this is just a political witch hunt,” Boxer said. “This is a campaign tactic to gin up their base. We know Republicans have been actively fundraising off this tragedy.”
And they’re fundraising off the fundraising. Now they’re back to the canard it was lack of security funding for the attack.
“How about reading what we already have — stacks and stacks of information,” Boxer said pointing to nearly a dozen binders of reports on the attack. “But you’re not going to see an investigation into why Republicans thought it was wise to cut embassy funding. … We know what happened. It was a terrorist attack on a facility that needed more security.”
So if Republicans are to blame, why isn’t there an investigation of that?
