Letter: Dragging Clinton through the mud of Benghazi
I am shocked at the stupid Republicans in Congress. They are trying to defeat a potential 2016 presidential run by Hillary Clinton by dragging her through Benghazi mud. Go ahead. Do it. Do it now.
Even Sen. Lindsey Graham has said publicly that he does not believe any law was broken. But Republicans appear to be bent on a subpoena of Clinton to Capitol Hill.
Rather than holding hearings to gather information on making outlying posts more secure (not to mention the fact that Republicans refused to fund outlying security in 2011), Republicans are more interested in accusing Clinton, the former secretary of state, of lying, after the fact. They say she was putting a “political spin” on a terrorist event only weeks before the 2012 presidential election.
In politics, it is my understanding that “spin” is the catchword for misinformation, lying, disinformation, fibbing, exaggerating, withholding information and cherry-picking information.
The military has testified in hearings that, given the time frame, there was nothing they could do! Clinton was an excellent secretary of state. She is smart. She knows the game of politics. No, two wrongs do not make a right. But, most women are catching on to Republican agenda.
Hold your Hillary hearings. Do it. Do it now!
