Republicans Crushed as Their Own Investigator Debunks Entire Benghazi Witch Hunt

Believe it or not, Republicans are still “investigating” the 2012 Benghazi attack. I would say I’m “shocked,” but I actually predicted back in 2013 after they failed to link it to President Obama that they would go to extraordinary lengths to keep this nonsense going until 2016, hoping to use it against Hillary Clinton.

Surprise, surprise – that is exactly what’s happened.

Even a year and a half ago when Republican-led investigation concluded that there was no wrongdoing – GOP leaders simply ordered another investigation. This, of course, led to the now infamous 11-hour grilling Clinton withstood last October where all Republicans really did was make her look very presidential. Even many within the conservative media said Clinton walked away from that stunt looking stronger than ever.

Then I was absolutely “stunned” – stunned I say – when Republicans announced last year that they didn’t expect to release their “findings” until sometime a bit closer to the 2016 presidential election. I’m sure nobody saw that coming. Well, except for every rational person who’s known from the beginning that this Benghazi propaganda coming from Republicans has been nothing but their way to try to hurt Clinton’s chances in 2016.

Well, another bit of a “bombshell” came out on Monday when it was reported that former three-star Lt. Gen. Dana K. Chipman, who was specifically picked by Republicans to investigate this, concluded that there was nothing that could have been done differently to have changed or altered the outcome of the attack.

As reported by Right Wing Watch:

While interviewing former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in January, the then-chief counsel acknowledged, “I think you ordered exactly the right forces to move out and to head toward a position where they could reinforce what was occurring in Benghazi or in Tripoli or elsewhere in the region. And, sir, I don’t disagree with the actions you took, the recommendations you made, and the decisions you directed.” (Emphasis added)

Later in the interview he told Panetta, “And again, sir, I don’t mean to suggest that anything could have been done differently to affect the outcome in Benghazi, and I think you would agree with that.”

This shouldn’t really be “news” considering every single “investigation” that’s been conducted on Benghazi has essentially concluded the same exact thing.

For a while the question I’ve been asking is when do we launch an investigation into the Republican party over this complete and total waste of taxpayer money? They have literally wasted millions of dollars on what’s been nothing more than a very elaborate political stunt aimed at trying to slander the person who most people believed is going to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

Not only that, but Republicans have blatantly exploited and politicized this tragedy and the deaths of these people, all for political purposes.

While I’m sure it won’t happen, I really do believe that once this circus is wrapped up there needs to be an investigation into the GOP and everything that went into wasting so much time and money exploiting a deadly tragedy all for the sake of a petty, partisan political witch hunt.

    Something went very wrong in Benghazi but that is beside the point. Just keep in mind why she didn’t stay for Obama’s second term. I like many liberals don’t trust Hillary. She is too secretive, conniving, and power hungry. From her being shot at in Bosnia to her emails getting lost to her rise to power via Bill, she is too much of a politician who will do and say anything to grow power.

    • judd1157

      No one in the history of mankind has sought this office or one similar without being “power hungry”. This slur has been flung at her for years. It’s never used against men.

      • Fitz

        never say never, and the first presidents, quite litterally were forced into it.

      • Fobes

        hahaha judd get’s completely blasted… Judd your anti-man card is in the mail

    • Kuzimo Gardner

      Like Trump and Bernie and all of the rest of the politicians that ran for president.

    • kevinbarry

      Not to mention the Clinton Crime Family Fund La Cosa Noxious and all the dirty dealing money for favors

    “It never ends. The Republicans are on a witch hunt. If they could they would use the “Dunkiing Chair”, tie her in, leave her under water for 30 minutes. If she survives then burn her at the stake because for sure she is a witch, if she dies well that proves she was a witch or God would have saved her.” …a more perfect example of republican thinking cannot be found…thank you for your input….

    • Shari D

      Actually, it’s “If she dies, then that proves she wasn’t a witch or she would have saved herself.” The proof of one’s innocence in their eyes is your own death. So, what do you have to be to be proven innocent? Dead, of course.
      So, they can bury you while they can be “so sorry” they were wrong and you were right, but by now you’re beyond saving, because you’re dead and lying in your grave.

    • Fobes

      heard of satire? you’re a complete idiot to think this is not. You lost all credibility when you follow this news site without fail as your “source” and you act if your shit doesn’t stink. Fact is the Dems are just as bad if not worse but you choose one side as if it’s holdy ground and better…idiot

    • kevinbarry

      Witch Hunt ? They found her ! Hillary !

      • noah vail

        That’s the best youve got ? … Typical…

    • Blindchitlin

      You have obviously never hanled classified material. She stored SAP material in an unclassified server. They are the most closely guarded secrets we have. I am not a Hillary fan, but she should not get special treatment. The SAP program I was read into I had to sign a non-disclosure that told me on top of random polygraphs. I was responsible for mishandled data on the SAP, and intent is not a viable excuse. This infraction she has done would be like handing Iran our nuclear launch codes. There is no witch hunt Einstein people have gone to jail for decades for doing what she did. INTENT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ESTABLISHED. The FBI does not work for Obama. Comey is appointed by congress for 10 years…he has no dog in the fight. Lorretta who works for barry will either charge her or not–all it is is the democrats covering for their own.

    • Blindchitlin

      O by the way get mental help.

      • noah vail

        with that avatar you’ve got a lot of nerve telling others they need mental help… your avatar shows the world what the republican party stands for , a refuge for racists and other haters…

      • Blindchitlin

        I will take it down when you liberals headed by Presedent two tone start to recognize that black racist will start to be recognized…BLM is encouraging young black youths to beat up old defenceless white women, men Ana disabled vets. You are an ignorant left wing white guilt a ss hole. We have gone back to the 1960’s. In race relations and you are part of the problem. Their fun little game is called Polar bear hunting. Where young men in groups try to knock the white victim out with one punch. If not they will keep punching untill you are dead. They set a vet you p piece of liberal s hit on fire. Never covered by the left news paper ignors this…this is a hate crime and I will not cower to these black thuggs. I hope hit you and you can see it first hand.Stupid. white guilt suck boy. You just keep appoligizong for the sins of your father.

      • noah vail

        use whatever you need to justify your racism…and while you’re at it you might ask someone for some english lessons…your spelling and syntax (look it up ) are absolutely abysmal…perhaps a little education will bring you into the 21st century….BTW, are there any conspiracy theories to which you don’t subscribe…try having an original thought sometime…

      • Blindchitlin

        Liberal 101, you are as predictable as a morning s hit. 1.Attack them Becuase all you can spew is Blatherskite. 2. call them a racest– again you know nothing about the subject so you attack grammar errors. 3. You me
        call me a racist because you are no doubt some composition Nazi.
        …that again takes away from the fact that you know nothing about the subject matter. YAADS………

      • noah vail

        i call you a racist because no one in their right mind would appear in blackface in the 21st century…once again you prove my point you fu**ing moron….

      • Blindchitlin

        You don’t begin a sentence “i”retard…….Blatherskite…you stupid liberal. You missed the whole point–you and your confabulated white guilt…….

    • Blindchitlin

      I like the chair idea maybe they can take the raper tie them together then sink them, Its about time they have cought up with these two criminals: white water, travel gate, rape gate, the mysterious death of Vince Foster. He shot himself 6 times, storing too secret clearance data on her home server, the death of Chris Stevens her BFF and the other 3 seals she allowed to die. O and the Clinton foundation. What is it going to take to put these criminals away.

    What part of job description don’t you guys understand!
