The Republicans had no downside with utilizing the bogus Benghazi investigations to assault Hillary Clinton earlier than the 2016 election. Benghazi was the entry level for what infamously turned the ginned-up Clinton e-mail scandal that undoubtedly impacted the 2016 election.
Given the GOP’s previous conduct when in energy throughout an election yr, they might haven’t any qualms about utilizing their platform to launch an investigation throughout an election yr.
Bipartisan help for the fee is just not coming. Democrats must act now, and never waste time.
Kevin McCarthy is a hypocrite, and the way in which to make him pay for his hypocrisy is to launch the 9/11 Fee and subpoena him to testify.
