Kevin McCarthy Screws Republicans Again By Confirming Benghazi Committee Is A Lie

mccarthy admits benghazi lie

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was trying to save his own hide with a statement about the Benghazi committee today, but what he admitted was that the Select Committee is based on a lie.

McCarthy was reacting to starring in Clinton’s first national campaign ad:

McCarthy confirmed that the ad was correct while he was trying to defend himself by saying, “The mission of the Select Committee on Benghazi is to find the truth — period. The integrity of Chairman Gowdy, the committee and the work they’ve accomplished is beyond reproach. The serious questions Secretary Clinton faces are due entirely to her own decision to put classified information at risk and endanger our national security.”

McCarthy claims that the committee is about finding the truth, but he never explains what truth they are looking for. The only reference he makes involves Hillary Clinton and her emails.

Rep. McCarthy didn’t address the fact that the Committee is supposed to be finding the “truth” about what happened to the four American citizens who died in Benghazi. He didn’t say anything to counter his previous admission that the Benghazi Select Committee is really only concerned with partisan politics.

By not addressing any of the real questions concerning the intentions and purposes of the Committee, McCarthy was admitting the stated purpose of the Select Committee is a lie.

The cat is out of the bag, and no number of dodgy statements from the likely next Speaker can go back in time and restore the great Republican lie.

Kevin McCarthy is only digging himself in deeper by attaching the truth to each of his lies.

  1. He’s an idiot, but what Republican isn’t these days? It’s required with the new GOP. Groups are calling for the GOP to be investigated. I’m all for it, I’m just not sure which government organization would actually undergo the investigation.

  2. The GOP should be on the lookout for a “Lynching” by the Justice dept… There are laws on the books for abuse of power, ask Rick Perry, the smartest man in the United States.

  3. No way. A Democrat would be more intelligent. Have you heard some of this guys speeches? Word salad to rival Sarah Palin’s.

  4. McCarthy and Chaffetz are low-info, vicious Teatard bastards…BOTH are up to no good; neither can be trusted by ANY thinking person…
    {spits twice…one hits the trash can}

  5. Their cover is blown. “Chairman” Gowdy is just another partisan hack. He’s just not quite as slimy as Issa.

  6. He will soon get on to explain it is The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Committee.

    The VRWCC in business since forever.

  7. Again a quote from Hamlet…”so full of artless jealousy is guilt that it spills it’s self in fearing to be spilt” The Reich wing is artless and jealous of the intellect and humanity of the left.

  8. “The serious questions Secretary Clinton faces are due entirely to her own decision to put classified information at risk and endanger our national security.”

    But I thought the entire thing was about to find the “truth” on the death of 4 people in Benghazi…?

    And so far, the only Clinton emails leaked have nothing to do with either Benghazi or having her private server, but simply to embarrass her. If that’s the case, then Dems should get access to the GOP candidates’ emails for the last 5 years…

  9. airhead McCarthy can’t take the California central valley heat and his pea-brain is fried.

    They call him surferboy, however the nearest beach to him is 120 miles away in Ventura.

  10. Never forget: Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security: ‘You Have To Prioritize Things’ Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010. On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had “voted to cut the funding for embassy security.” “Absolutely,” Chaffetz said. “Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

  11. I’d settle for the vigorous application of brains by the electorate. That way we can vote out the GOP politicians and stop the nonsense.

  12. His brain is so obviously not wired up correctly & I would not trust him to manage a Kwik-Trip.

  13. I have to agree with Shadowolf on this one. sadly, sometimes a Louisville Slugger, is the correct answer.

    I really think that the only way to get anything through the thick skulls if these Republicans, is with an electric drill and a ramrod…

  14. So, the truth is that the Benghazi Committee is all about getting Hillary. Its not about the death of 4 Americans; its not about the call for help & how long it took to get to Benghazi; its not about any of those things. Good to know. However, it does explain why none of the Consulate & Embassy attacks during the GWBush reign were ever investigated when we lost far more than 4 American lives.

  15. I think the icons that represent the parties have been mixed up. It is now the GOP that is stubborn as a Mule & the DEMS that have long memories. Memories of when government actually worked for the people & grew the largest middle class in the history of this country.

  16. Add your voice to the growing chorus of those who are demanding that House Republicans be held accountable for the years and millions wasted on their Bengahzi farce.

    Rep. McCarthy admitted again today that the Benghazi Select Committee is based on a lie. Hold the Republicans accountable by signing the petition demanding an ethical investigation into the fraud of their activities:

    Here’s the petition link:

  17. I’m totally on your side here…I have always contended that the Gowdy hearings as well as all the rest were politically motivated. However, there is nothing in the latest remarks that justify the headline you posted. While I admire your work, I don’t EVER post your stuff to facebook, because I find all too often that you stretch the truth to make a point..This doesn’t help, it gives THEM more ammunition, and reduces you to a site similar to Breitbart in partisanship…You have to stick to facts.

  18. Kevin McCarthy speaks in “word-salads”, trying to compete with “Sarah Palin-speak”! Interpreters are needed for both of them!

  19. I don’t dislike Hilary but I think Bernie Sanders would be far better for the country. His policies have been consistent. He does not change according to polls and he will continue to fight hard for what benefits the American people as he has done for over thirty years. He is not beholden to powerful corporations or individuals. His speeches generate much larger numbers of people and enthusiasm than any other candidate from either side. He has the ability to unite and is creating a revolution in the political system that can transform the country into one that serves the people rather than only serving large corporations or the super rich. Bernie Sanders is an honorable, compassionate, decent, intelligent man! A rare commodity among politicians! The American people would be very fortunate to have him as President!
