Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seized on comments by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who boasted on Fox News last week that the committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack had driven down Clinton’s poll numbers. “Look at the situation that they chose to exploit to go after me for political reasons – the death of four Americans in Benghazi,” Clinton said. But Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, a member of the committee, disputes that. “Despite what Clinton says, this committee has never been about politics,” he said in a statement. “Our work has always been about transparency and getting every single available fact related to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, so that we can ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.” – Phillip Brownlee
