Here was James Carville speaking to Andrea Mitchell today on the sheer ludicrousness of the Benghazi Committee:
There have been seven, seven congressional committees that have looked into this and issued reports. In addition to Admiral Mullen and Ambassador Pickering. So, they can ask what they want but, they have already exposed themselves for what they are. They are no more interested in finding out anything. All they’re interested in is driving her poll numbers down. They have admitted as much. It’s just a fact. And it’s all — he got into Congress because the Koch brothers put him there.
Here’s the interview in full, and it’s a thing of beauty:
At some point, the Republicans are going to have to get their heads around the fact that this is not only huge waste of money and time, but actively toxic to their own political ambitions. The public isn’t buying their charade and they will likely suffer in the general election should Hillary get through and they keep using it to score political points.
Let’s hope they keep it up!
