After the longest congressional investigation in U.S. history, Republicans have not been able to blame Hillary Clinton for what happened in Benghazi in 2012.
The Benghazi Select Committee spent over $7 million dollars of taxpayer's money trying to derail Hillary Clinton's chance at being elected president.
The military ended up being blamed for the death of the four Americans. Just like in the other seven reports.
Known Clinton hater (since the days Bill was president) Trey Gowdy, who led the bogus investigation, was on a personal vendetta (see Benghazi committee report).
Last year, in a not so shocking admission by Republican Reps. McCarthy and Hanna, the blatant political motivation behind it was on full display when they bragged about how the committee was damaging Clinton's campaign chances.
Let's make one thing clear: Trey Gowdy's single-minded attack on Clinton came after seven other investigations cleared her of any wrong doing. Preventing another tragedy was never part of Gowdy's focus.
So what did his committee find?
That Hillary Clinton wasn't to blame for the death of those four Americans. The 800-page report faults the military for its slow response sending resources to Benghazi despite clear orders from the president on down.
The Democratic spokesman for the Benghazi Select Committee, Brian Fallon, said that the way in which the committee released the report shows the GOP members of the committee "...were clearly seeking to avoid any fact-checking of their discredited conspiracy theories."
When a reporter asked Gowdy whether Clinton lied, he demurred and said, "That's a word you couldn't use in a courtroom."
So this whole partisan mess is over, right?
Not so fast. Lies have been spread for over two years by this select committee. Lies were leaked out via misinformation to the public.
Those lies took root with time.
Die hard Republicans, and other sundry extremists, will never accept the truth. They've been brainwashed for too long with lies, lying memes, and false stories.
Understand that Gowdy's failed attempt at discrediting Hillary will not stop here. He's a man on a mission of hate. Expect to hear from him again somewhere down the line.
