I knew that Rep. Nancy Pelosi would not allow Rep. Trey Gowdy’s House Select Committee investigating the murders in Benghazi to proceed without any democrats participating, if for no other reason than it’s important for democrats to have someone to rush to the mic at the end of each session and supply the dinosaur media with their Obama apologist soundbite of the day. (Terrific journalist Byron York has reported that “ClintonWorld” pushed to have democrats there as Hillary’s “first line of defense.”) I thought she might assign that role to the frequently hysterical Rep. Elijah Cummings, who has demonstrated his enthusiasm for trying to obfuscate the search for the truth with his antics on Rep. Darryl Issa’s committee. Indeed, he Rep. Cummings is one of the five selected.
Let’s take a closer look at these stellar public servants.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD), known for his combativeness and desire to obstruct the investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups. He intends to continue that strategy, which is obviously why he was chosen. Given that earlier this month he attacked Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks (see video above) and of Benghazi said “death is a part of life,” I’m going to go out on a limb and say that he’s more interested in keeping the cover up alive than actually getting to the bottom on this horrific episode.
Rep. Tammy Duckworth (IL), who notoriously walked out of a hearing to avoid listening to the testimony of the families of the murdered Benghazi heroes
Rep. Adam Smith (WA), who said that democrats shouldn’t participate in this committee’s proceedings, calling it a “witch hunt.”
Rep. Adam Schiff (CA), who called the Select Committee a “red herring” and “a colossal waste of time.”
Rep. Linda Sanchez (CA) the 8th most liberal member of Congress, who therefore is down for the Obama socialist agenda. Defending the One and his “remaking” of America is Job One for her.
We know what to expect from this bunch, and so does Rep. Gowdy. He was his typical classy self yesterday, welcoming them to the committee, but I am sure that he’s under no illusions about why Leader Pelosi sent them there. If there is any justice, their strategy will fail, even with the assistance of their media lapdogs, and truth will prevail.
By the way, didn’t Barack Obama tell us that someone would be held accountable for the murder of these 4 Americans. Has that happened yet? Didn’t think so.
