The Best $8 Million Of Your Money They Ever Spent

Having done exactly what it set out to do, the taxpayer-funded Republican SuperPAC known as the "Benghazi Select Committee" folded it's tents today.

House Benghazi committee files final report and shuts down

WASHINGTON — The special congressional investigation into the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi is officially over now that the panel filed its final report the day before the House adjourned for the year.

The Select Committee on Benghazi initially released its findings in June but remained in place for months afterward trying to declassify supporting documents like emails and interview transcripts for public release.

The final report, not including dissenting views from committee Democrats, clocks in at more than 322,000 words. It was added to the official House record without fanfare on Dec. 7 by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the panel’s chairman.

The panel, which spent more than $7.8 million over two and a half years, disbanded at the end of the 114th Congress, before a new Congress begins in January.

The panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said Monday that the final report was a “desperate rehash.”

“Republicans voted on this partisan report five months ago, but delayed filing it and completing the committee until after the election,” Cummings said. “Republicans promised a process that was fair and bipartisan, but the American people got exactly the opposite.”
Of course, traditionally the end of one Benghazi show-trial signals the beginning of the next Benghazi show-trial, but this time the trolls and traitors have packed up their red-white-and-blue Benghazi dunking stools for good because they have finally fulfilled the solemn promise they made to the Pig People years ago:  to stoke the tragic death of five Americans into a toasty Republican Reichstag Fire big enough and hot enough to cripple the candidacy of Hillary Clinton:

Because while they suck at almost everything else, nobody is better at perverting the levers of federal government power (and your tax dollars) to cynically exploit dead Americans for partisan gain than our own, home-grown American Fascist Party.

The four people that died in Benghazi doesn't matter any more to Trump republican voters.

We know from Trump, it was just campaign lying and he really didn't mean it.
Somebody died and I was able to benefit by smearing it all.

The republican party puts their true selves on display that the election is over. That they really didn't give a damn about dead Americans in line of duty.

The rabid frothed foaming GOP voter who ranted insanely over Benghazi. When they heard Trump say, lock her up and they felt their first orgasm. They will go on now to abortion or nancy pelosi.
They themselves only needed something to hate and yell at.
Will democrats or liberal or progressive alike let them burn scarecrows nailed to crosses on the lawns of people that are not conservative like them?

Did anyone catch the Bernie live in Wisconsin town hall with Chris Hayes?
I found it bothersome and interesting at the same time.

Any thoughts?
