Well, I just got home today and now I'm home posting about the 11 hour Congressional Select Committee on Benghazi.
From 10am to 9pm, former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton comes to Washington to testify about the situation.
The Republican-sponsored investigation in the September 11th, 2012 tragedy in the seaside Libyan city. The American ambassador Chris Stevens and three men died in an attack on the CIA-sanctioned U.S. Consulate.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is the chair of the committee. He along with a handful of Republicans grilled Hillary Clinton today. Many of the Republicans managed to get a piece of her.
Memorable moments were an exchange between Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) and Clinton.
Clinton laughed at Roby when a question about Clinton's personal business. Of course, Roby wasn't thrilled that she laughed at her.
Rep. Pet Roskam (R-IL) has a turn.
Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) was trying his best.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) the insurgent leader also got a grill in. "Where'd the false narrative [the YouTube anti-Muslim video] start? It started from you!
In regards to the unrest in the Middle East after the release Innocence of Muslim, a controversial movie trailer being shown in translated language.
While I seriously believe that the Republicans intentionally created this committee in order to stop Hillary Clinton from winning the election, Republicans tell the public that they're not here to hurt her chances. They're there to find out the truth.
Democrats offered the most defense towards Clinton.
Rep. Ellijah Cummings (D-MD) blasted the committee as being a ploy for "gotcha moments".
He and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) put Gowdy on blast for this $5 million disaster called a investigation.
That network that obsesses over Hillary Clinton's emails was first to cut away from programming.
MSNBC and CNN ran through the hearing with exceptions to committee breaks.
Many see this a game changer for Hillary Clinton. The candidate was struggling throughout the summer and conservatives were hoping that Vice President Joe Biden would jump into the race.,
Many conservatives believe that Clinton may end up in federal time out. This is the wet dream for many conservatives. They believe that Clinton violated federal law. They seriously believe that she would order a stand down when there's an attack on an American embassy. They are trying to paint President Barack Obama as weak on terrorism.
America is ready to move past the Benghazi controversy. Many people don't really give a crap about Clinton's emails or the pinata Sidney Blumenthal.
