Ending one of the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued its final report on Tuesday, finding no new evidence of culpability or wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton in the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead.
That's right. Republican congressman, and Chairman of the committee, Trey Gowdy was specifically chosen because he supposedly had the skills to do what prior investigations failed to do: indict Hillary. Yet after all this time, not only did he not find anything incriminating (or interesting, for that matter), he actually wound up exonerating her.
Not that any of this is surprising. Republicans made the mistake of assuming that the problem here was that they needed an intelligent and competent prosecutor, instead of things like facts and actual evidence to build a case against Hillary. We already had eight investigations so far on the matter, and none of them turned up any damning info on Hillary whatsoever, and in fact, many have even absolved her of any wrongdoing. Gowdy, for however skilled he may have been as a prosecutor before entering congress, was destined to be heading into a brick wall.
It's like I always say: a flat-Earther with a PhD in geology, is still a flat-Earther.
