Republicans claim that their new select committee on Benghazi is serious investigation. Let any Democrats question this, and these Republicans accuse them of spitting in the faces of four murdered heroes. In that case, what is it when these same Republicans ignore the head of that committee to use both him and it as an opportunity for their second favorite (behind election theft) activity: sheeple-fleecing.
