Paul Ryan announced today that his first official act as Speaker will be to launch a congressional inquiry into the inability of Republican members of the Benghazi committee to have a point.
I want Hillary Clinton for president. The only thing that will satisfy me after the great run of our historic first African American is a smart, tough, unflappable woman. She will make one hell of a president. In fact, she might be one of our best.
The Republican inability to make personal political headway against Hillary is the consequence of tone-deaf, hyper-personal, overheated violations of the basic rules of conduct for legislative hearings.
Some Bernie Sanders supporters, rudely awakened from their White House dreams, got mad over Hillary Clinton's surge after the October 13 debate in Las Vegas.
This is Chris Wallace. In the wake of Joe Biden taking himself out of the race for President, I interviewed the Vice President at his official reside...
If you've been paying federal taxes for the past few years, then you've been funding a Republican hit job against Hillary Clinton. The House Select Committee on Benghazi's investigations have bilked -- in total -- around $4.7 million for their relentless, shameless, fact-free pursuit.
The Benghazi investigation was never about getting to the bottom of what actually happened. It was always a dirt-digging operation, a wild search for some hint of scandal that could stop Barack Obama from being re-elected, and, when that failed, stop Hillary Clinton from succeeding him.
To me, the Benghazi attack has become more than fodder for an ongoing investigation. It has become a cautionary tale for anyone who has ever owned or managed a business.
This Thursday, Hillary Clinton will appear (once again) in front of the latest congressional committee to investigate Benghazi. The first seven investigations have turned up precisely nothing, but that didn't stop Republicans from trying one last time to do political damage.
It is time to cease the operations of the Special Committee on Benghazi. This taxpayer-sponsored witch-hunt must come to an end now. It is a textbook example of what Secretary Clinton's husband aptly labeled "the politics of personal destruction."
If Accuracy in Media is desperate to deny the obvious partisan nature of the House Select Committee, it's certainly not going to admit the partisanship and credibility issues of its own "Citizens' Commission on Benghazi".
The legendary George Orwell would vote for Bernie Sanders, not Clinton or Trump, because Sanders doesn't use semantics as a weapon or shield. The Vermont Senator will win the Democratic nomination and presidency because Americans are tired of what Orwell refers to as defending the "indefensible."
This is Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room. And we have BREAKING NEWS. Three more Republican congressmen have said the Benghazi investigation is a sham created just to bring down Hillary Clinton. Live with reaction is Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Because of the importance of the first debate of the season for Democrats, we're devoting the entire column today to scrutinizing the various talking points (good and bad) delivered by the candidates.
Vladimir Putin is only nine years older than Barack Obama, yet they somehow are of a different generation. How could this be?
No matter who becomes the next Speaker of the House, it's reassuring that the second person in the line of presidential succession won't be best known for turning tragedies into unfair investigations of political enemies like Kevin McCarthy.
