Republicans’ Manufactured Benghazi Probe Has Gone On Longer Than Watergate Investigation

Have you been trying to keep track of the various investigations that Republicans are spending your money on, when they are not giving it to oil companies to help subsidize them?

Well, you’ll be happy to know that Republicans’ manufactured Benghazi probe has now gone on longer than the Watergate investigation. It is the longest probe in Congressional history. It has cost more than 4.5 million of your dollars so far, and they’re just getting warmed up.

ABC News pointed out the Watergate comparison:

As of Monday, the House Select Committee on Benghazi has been active for 72 weeks — surpassing the record previously held by the Watergate Committee in the 1970s.

“The Benghazi Select Committee has now become one of the longest and least active congressional investigations in history,” ranking member Elijah Cummings, D-Md., wrote in a statement. “The Committee has squandered the last 16 months and more than 4.5 million taxpayer dollars dredging up political attacks to impact the 2016 presidential election — a severe misuse of taxpayer funds and Congressional power.”

A probe into nothing has gone on longer than Watergate. Longer than any investigation into the Bush administration’s weapons of mass destruction propaganda. Longer than ignoring intel prior to 9/11.

This “investigation” is such a sham that Republicans have refused to allow witnesses to speak on camera, have never addressed their own defunding of security, have pretended to not believe the results of their own investigations that have shown this was a tragedy but not a conspiracy, and so much more.

This is your modern day Republican party– getting ready to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood so they can increase the abortion rate and investigating a non-issue longer than the very real scandal of Watergate was investigated because they desperately need something to throw at former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton.

  1. Since 2012 we at Politicususa has debunked this witch hunt. If somehow we can pull up every thread about Benghazi any sane person would say WTF!!!? There is no there there.

    Pay Us Back: House Republicans Owe Taxpayers $14 Million For Benghazi Investigations

    And growing. How many of our homeless Vets could have left the streets if we spent that money on them? How many seniors could have had meals on wheels?

    We will never know because our media would never report it. All they know is fake scandals sells and to hell what we as people are experiencing .

    As the Rev. Wright said GODAMN AMERICA

  2. For the gnopers I would guess that the length of time required to find the “truth” is a clear indication that the dems are much more devious and better at hiding the facts than they are.
    Surely any group of pols that can unite virtually the entire global scientific community in a hoax like climate change can conceal the facts about Benghazi pretty effectively. Just give them another year and a few million more dollars and the will find the proof. Just like those WMDs in Iraq.

  3. I think God has already damned America by giving us a G.O.P lead house and senate. And people who don’t get off there ass and vote.

  4. I wasn’t even a glint in my mother’s eye when Watergate went down. To see this circus act go on longer then an actual investigation that nearly took down a crooked man at the top is disgraceful on many levels.

    It shows what the GOP is willing to do to stop Hillary because they know damn well that she is pretty much unbeatable in a general election.

  5. Well duh.

    The republicans want dirt on Hillary Clinton and they don’t plan to stop until they get it. Hence the never-ending Benghazi tale and the nitpicking over the emails.

    Her fortitude and equanimity are amazing, esp. considering this goes back to her days as FLOTUS.

  6. Top Republican Admits House Benghazi Committee Designed To Attack Hillary Clinton’s Poll Numbers (VIDEO)

    The House of Representatives Select Committee on the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi is all about attacking Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers, admits a senior Republican.

    Current House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Fox News host Sean Hannity during an interview on Monday night that the Select Committee, chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) that Clinton’s dropping poll numbers are evidence of the effectiveness of the committee.

  7. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the Benghazi Committee, responds:

    “This stunning concession from Rep. McCarthy reveals the truth that Republicans never dared admit in public: the core Republican goal in establishing the Benghazi Committee was always to damage Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and never to conduct an even-handed search for the facts. It is shameful that Republicans have used this tragedy and the deaths of our fellow Americans for political gain. Republicans have blatantly abused their authority in Congress by spending more than $4.5 million in taxpayer funds to pay for a political campaign against Hillary Clinton.”

  8. And, the world is STILL waiting for the Bush/Cheney GANG to even be brought to trial, when they should have ALL been rotting in prison long ago! WHEN are they going to be CHARGED and tried for all their crimes, INCLUDING lying to Congress to even get us INTO these NEVER-ENDING wars!!? THIS is the BIGGEST OFFENSE and should be handled FIRST!! Course, Republican criminals get away with murder! They’re so “Pro-Life??” because they need those saved babies, to kill in their wars for profit! God knows that THEIR children will never be on any front lines!
