After watching 60 Minutes last night, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had a moment of clarity and decided that Benghazi(!) is still a thing.
During his appearance on Fox News this morning, Graham said he will block all nominations until the survivors of Benghazi are paraded through Monkey Court.
GRAHAM: So I am calling for a joint select committee. But for God’s sake, let the House have a select committee where you get three or four committees together to look at this situation as one unit rather than stove piping. And where are the survivors? 14 months later, Steve, the survivors, the people who survived the attack in Benghazi, have not been made available to the U.S. congress for oversight purposes. I’m going to block every appointment in the United States Senate until the survivors are being made available to the Congress. I’m tired of hearing from people on TV and reading about stuff in books.
Graham is tired of hearing about this from other people on TV. Why should they get to have all the fun? Shouldn’t Graham be the one who gets to break the news that there is no news?
And what if those survivors don’t want to participate in the Republican party’s dog and pony show?
There’s nothing they could reveal that isn’t already known, but they may stammer or misspeak and provide new fodder for the GOP. That’s what they really want.
