Benghazi Ethics

Kevin McCarthy Asks You to Stop “Playing Politics” With His Politics

Written by SK Ashby

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy continued his week-long apology tour at a press conference this morning where he accused critics of "playing politics."

“Let’s be very clear: Benghazi is not polit­ic­al,” Mc­Carthy said. “It was cre­ated for one pur­pose and one pur­pose only: to find the truth on be­half of the fam­il­ies of the four dead Amer­ic­ans. Peri­od.” [...] “The integrity of [com­mit­tee chair­man Rep.] Trey Gowdy, the in­teg­rity of the work that has been done has nev­er come in­to ques­tion and it nev­er should be. Stop play­ing polit­ics,” he ad­ded.”

That's the joke.

The man who openly admitted they created the Select Benghazi Committee to tackle an "unbeatable" Hillary Clinton, and then directly credited the committee for sinking her poll numbers, says his opponents need to "stop playing politics."

If Republicans ever stopped playing politics, I don't know what they'd do.
