Now that Donald Trump is the President-elect, House Republicans have announced that the special congressional investigation into the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi is officially over, proving that the entire ‘investigation’ was just a Clinton witch hunt, USA Today reported.
After spending nearly $8 million of tax-payers dollars over two and a half years, Rep. Trey Gowdy, the committee chairman, quietly closed the investigation and added the report to the official House record without fanfare on Dec. 7, according to USA Today.
The special committee was created in May 2014 to investigate the terrorist attacks at the U.S. compound in eastern Libya where four Americans died, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
But after helping elect Donald Trump by a historic minority of voters, Republicans have decided that a headline-grabbing fake investigation into Hillary Clinton just isn’t necessary anymore.
In multiple desperate attempts to blame the tragic Benghazi terrorist attacks on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, Republicans spent years betraying taxpayers by knowingly wasting millions of their dollars doing their best not to uncover the truth, but to turn public perception against the president and the former secretary of state.
Democrats contended all along that the committee was a political effort to taint Clinton, an allegation that got some traction when House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News that because of the committee, “her numbers are dropping.”
“Republicans voted on this partisan report five months ago, but delayed filing it and completing the committee until after the election,” The panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said Monday. “They promised a process that was fair and bipartisan, but the American people got exactly the opposite.”
Cummings added that the final report was a “desperate rehash.”
Yes, it was propaganda — an effective taxpayer-funded propaganda.
