If Trey Gowdy doesn’t already know that Hillary Clinton’s a lot smarter and tougher than he is, he’s about to find out. Truthfully, they’d be better advised to fold the committee and file some weasel-worded report.
House Democrats are taking the gloves off, after the Republican leadership’s public admission that the Benghazi committee is all a political game.
My instincts told me that if we just gave the Hillary email story another poke or two, the whole house of cards would collapse.
Journalists would be wise to take note of the pattern of plain deception behind various GOP-sponsored pursuits, and ask themselves if they want to keep sponsoring these planned distractions.
Watch as Kevin McCarthy insists the investigation has nothing to do with politics — and what’s more, he says, it’s been “applauded by all sides of the aisle.”
Trevor Noah realized that Donald Trump’s campaign style is in fact very presidential — he’s just like some of the more notorious presidents from back in Trevor’s home continent of Africa.

Rep. Trey Gowdy is defending the Republicans’ misuse of taxpayer funds for an inquisition that has in no way advanced the public’s understanding of the Benghazi tragedy.
In his book The Great War of Our Time, former CIA deputy Director Michael Morell explains the blunder that led to Saddam Hussein being deposed and sent him into hiding in a spider hole.
National Memo editor-in-chief Joe Conason appeared with David Frum of The Atlantic on Both Sides Now, a weekly radio show hosted by Mark Green, to debate the Clintons.
This latest Blumenthal scandal is increasingly reminiscent of the pointless, endless probes of Whitewater by congressional Republicans two decades ago.
Republican staffers on the House Select Committee on Benghazi plainly leaked Clinton emails to the paper of record — in frustration that their probe is headed nowhere.
“Republicans have always been trusted more on national security,” said Republican pollster Whit Ayres, “and Obama has been a weaker leader than people expected.”
Fifteen years after its publication, this book still rings with relevance. The crosshairs may have shifted toward Hillary in the last decade or so, but the offensive is still very much engaged and demands a response.
The far right lashes out at Al Sharpton, Ben Carson is pretty sure we’re Nazi Germany, and much more.
