• Even MSNBC Admits Clinton Emails ‘Vindicate’ Benghazi Committee

    When you’ve lost MSNBC, you know it’s bad.

    A June 2014 poll conducted by CNN/ORC International showed that 61% of Americans believe the Obama administration has been dishonest in its presentation of the facts and details surrounding the September 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya.

    And now–nearly a year later, and after it’s been revealed that Hillary Clinton’s been playing fast and lose with emails that could contain sensitive material–the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi is seeking “any private email that relates to official business” and “any work that could have been done on private-to-private accounts for those State Department employees we know had private accounts,” said South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, who heads the Benghazi committee.

    And even MSNBC admits that Trey Gowdy and his committee were right all along to keep investigating the aftermath of Benghazi.

    “This committee has been operating somewhat in secrecy, they first learned about the fact she was using private e-mail last summer and that did not leak,” MSNBC correspondent Luke Russert said Wednesday. “So as far as the next steps are going to be, expect them to periodically have information dumps regarding Secretary Clinton, especially about her role in Benghazi, and expect there to be other things about her tenure in the State Department.”

    Commenting further on all the condemnation Republican lawmakers have received for pursuing the selectBenghazi committee, Russert noted that “When John Boehner made this committee, he came under a lot of criticism last year: ‘Benghazi was investigated thoroughly and people knew what happen and there was no wrongdoing.’  Now it seems that his decision to do this committee because of Clinton’s use of personal e-mail at the State Department has to some degree been vindicated, especially amongst Republicans here on Capitol Hill.”

    The June CNN poll also found that 48% of voters believe the GOP should continue to investigate Benghazi.

    Speaking of Hillary Clinton, Russert added that “This will be a thorn in her side from now through the election.”

    Gowdy says his investigators have found gaps in the emails that Clinton coughed up to the committee of “several weeks, if not in some instances months.”

    A thorn in her side, indeed.
