WASHINGTON — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) screwed up when he admitted the Benghazi committee was a weapon against Hillary Clinton, the likely future speaker of the House admitted Wednesday.But he insisted the committee, which was impaneled after multiple bipartisan investigations found no wrongdoing, is a genuine attempt to get to the bottom of what happened in the 2012 attacks in Libya.”Benghazi is not political. It was created for one purpose and one purpose only — to find the truth on behalf of the families of four dead Americans,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he had inadvertently aided the campaign of Clinton, who released an ad Monday highlighting McCarthy’s comments from the week before.”Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee, what are her numbers today?” McCarthy told Fox News last Tuesday. “Her numbers are dropping, why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened.”
