For a bunch of people who like to complain about government spending, taxes and even the collection of taxes, Republicans don’t have any inhibitions toward spending it on wasteful partisan politics, goose chases, manufactured scandals, and witch hunts.
Republicans have spent over two years and $7 million of taxpayer money in a partisan Congressional investigation trying to destroy Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. On Thursday they released what is supposedly their final report on Benghazi which failed to be the destructive force for Clinton they had hoped it would be. All it revealed is what we already knew, that there were plenty of failures within the State Department and U.S. military, but no evidence of actual wrongdoing or professional misconduct by Hillary Clinton or any other Obama administration members. Republicans want to cry…or keep making up stuff.
The GOP spent more time on an investigation on Benghazi than they did on 9/11, the largest and most destructive terrorist attack ever committed against the United States. There have actually been seven Congressional investigations into Benghazi. The 9/11 hearings were bipartisan and weren’t designed to destroy George W. Bush. Every member of that committee, Democrat and Republican, signed off on the investigation. The Republicans on the Benghazi Committee refused to even let their Democratic counterparts see their report before they released it to the public.
Kevin McCarthy, a Republican member of the committee, even boasted months ago how the committee was hurting Clinton’s poll numbers.
The only thing the Benghazi Committee succeeded in doing, other than wasting time and money, was build stupid and ridiculous conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, which Republicans are gullible enough to believe anyway and without having to spend $7 million of taxpayer money.
Republicans keep bringing up the names of the four Americans who died in Benghazi and have blamed Clinton and President Obama for their deaths. What the GOP has actually done is used their graves, service, and memory for cheap political gain.
