House Republicans debunking the House GOP Benghazi findings of no cover-up by the Obama Administration isn’t sitting well with Sen. Lindsey Graham. He blasted it as “full of crap.” Who didn’t see this coming? The Republicans are literally fighting each other. The GOP-controlled House Intelligence Committee released its report on Friday (news dump day) debunking all the nutty conspiracy theories about Benghazi, played over and over on Fox News.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday blasted a House GOP-led investigation that recently debunked myths about the 2012 Benghazi attack.
“I think the report is full of crap,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
The House Intelligence Committee released a report on Friday evening, which took two years to compile, that found there was no outright intelligence failure during the attack, there was no delay in the rescue of U.S. personnel and there was no political cover-up by Obama administration officials.
After Graham was asked whether the report exonerates the administration, he initially ignored the question, and then eventually said “no.”
The House Intelligence panel, Graham said, is “doing a lousy job policing their own.”
Graham didn’t clearly pinpoint why he dismissed the report’s findings, but suggested its information was provided by people in the intelligence community who had previously lied to Congress about the attack.
“I don’t believe the report is accurate given the role [former CIA deputy director] Mike Morell played in misleading the Congress on two occasions,” Graham said. Source: The Hill
By the way, Sen. Lindsey Graham is exploring throwing his hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential election. Um, there are no words, but then again, it will be fun to watch the GOP clown car fill up for the presidential election cycle.
