If you thought the House Select Committee on Benghazi was the end of the Hillary investigations, guess again. Picture what will happen when you combine the partisanship and drive of Congressional Republicans with the scattershot, conspiratorial insanity of Donald Trump. The Donald just loves to ask questions and leave them hanging out there as delicious bait for a broad constituency.
Now don’t get me wrong, it makes perfect sense to have a Congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack. People screwed up and the tragedy could have (possibly) been avoided. But it’s pretty apparent that among the eight (8!) investigations into Benghazi, there were plenty of overtly political attempts to dig something up on Hillary Clinton. (Meanwhile, just today, the NRA hit Clinton with a Benghazi ad campaign.)
Hillary emerged from the Congressional investigations mostly unscathed, but if you combine idle Republican inquisitors with a Trump campaign that likes to play fast and loose with facts and ethics, we’re sure to see some more Hillary dirt-digging. It’s all in the questions, right? After all, Donald Trump didn’t slime Hillary’s religion, he just said “we don't know anything” about her religion. (For all he knows, Hillary might be a Kenyan follower of Reverend Wright because . . . nobody knows!) Prepare your slime-shields, and be sure to check out my Patreon page.
