Last week, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy handed Hillary Clinton and the Democrats a gift when he went on TV and said, several times, that the House Select Committee on Benghazi has demonstrated its value by eroding Clinton’s poll numbers ahead of the 2016 presidential race. It was a statement of the obvious – the GOP’s interest in Benghazi has long been pegged to Hillary’s political future – but to have a member of the Republican leadership just come right out and say it made it impossible to pretend that the committee’s investigation is being conducted in anything resembling good faith. McCarthy gave the Democrats an opening, and they’re plowing right through it.
