Mr. Ryan said he is sympathetic to calls from the public to not waste any more taxpayer money on Benghazi, but said he believes he's found "the perfect and final solution" to paying for the investigations -- gutting Social Security.
It was my hope that the terrible failure of this select committee would discourage any repetition of such an abuse of process. But with new GOP calls for additional investigations into Secretary Clinton's emails, the Majority appears to have learned nothing from its two year, $7 million debacle.
Even in the era of widening partisan gaps, it would be ill-advised to throw around indictments willy-nilly. Voters use James Comey's statements for the insights on Clinton's fitness for the presidency, not prison.
As the stream of Republicans fleeing the Donald Trump candidacy becomes a flood, it does seem the appropriate metaphor to use -- the ships are leaving the sinking rat this time, not the other way 'round.

Donald Trump's name lends itself to all sorts of mashed-up words, but we find it doesn't really work with the big story of the week. British voters decided to take the so-called "Brexit" (or "British exit") from the European Union.
Newt Gingrich's supposed smartness is rather indiscriminate, when examined closely. Newt has what he considers 10 or 12 brilliant ideas each day, which he is in the habit of just tossing out for discussion.
A former three-star general who served as the Republicans' chief counsel on the Benghazi Select Committee repeatedly acknowledged as he interviewed witnesses during the committee's investigation that nothing "could have been done differently to affect the outcome in Benghazi."
Hillary Clinton's "woman's card" campaign strategy is demeaning to women. She exploits grievance and group-think identity politics to serve her personal and political agendas and sometimes to shield herself from appropriate scrutiny.
