McCarthy’s Benghazi Committee Brag Brings Rebuke From Clinton Campaign (Video)
Kevin McCarthy’s boast Tuesday night that the Select Committee on Benghazi had succeeded in tanking Hillary Rodham Clinton’s poll ratings has brought a rebuke from her campaign and congressional Democrats, who have long insisted the panel was set up for political gain.
“This is a damning display of honesty by the possible next Speaker of the House,” Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said in an email. “Kevin McCarthy just confessed that the committee set up to look into the deaths of four brave Americans at Benghazi is a taxpayer-funded sham,” Fallon continued. “This confirms Americans’ worst suspicions about what goes on in Washington.”
