While he was fundraising off of four dead Americans, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) accused President Obama of a Watergate style cover-up.
According to The Tampa Tribune, Issa said:
Benghazi is just in the early stages. The president can come clean and we can have this done in a few weeks.
It takes very little time and very little committees if the administration wants to tell the truth. If the administration wants to continue delaying, denying and lying and covering up, it takes a long time.
There was a lot of time and a lot of money spent on Watergate to eventually get to the truth about the wrongdoing of Richard Milhous Nixon.
Issa made these remarks at a Republican fundraiser, and expressed no reservations about raising money off of the four Americans who died in the Benghazi assault. Issa called it normal for both parties to raise money off of their activities in Congress. It just so happens that his activities involve exploiting the dead for partisan political gain.
The reason why the House Republican investigation into Benghazi is a joke is because people like Darrell Issa have already decided that President Obama covered something up and committed a crime.
Republicans aren’t interested in truth. They are looking to abuse their investigative powers in order to whip up grounds for impeachment against the president.
There is a cover-up going on, but it is not being carried out by President Obama and the White House. House Republicans have been covering up the truth about Benghazi for two years. The truth is that House Republicans are exploiting the dead for political gain. The investigations have been done. The facts are known, and the real criminals are those who are using Benghazi for their own benefit.
