This clip is from the Government Oversight Committee and the ranking Democrat member, Elija Cummings, tries to take on Chaffetz and likely comes to regret it.
Four Americans were killed in Benghazi and dozens injured, secret documents in both our consulate and CIA annex were exposed, national security compromised. It was all avoidable.
We know that in spite of the fact that they asked for better security hundreds of times, Hillary stripped their security from them and Hillary actually hired an offshoot of Al-Qaeda (yes the guys who carried out the 9/11 attacks) to provide security for our consulate.
There is evidence to show that the State Department was using the facility to send weapons to Muslim Brotherhood and pre-ISIS Islamic radicals who were fighting Syrian strongman Bashir Al-Assad. The fewer patriotic Americans on site who would leak such idiocy if they found out about it the better, hence most of the American security was stripped from them…and now they are dead.

Democrats have said over and over that the Benghazi investigation was purely political. Democrats, along with their friends in the elite media, have said that the attacks have been investigated and resolved.
To this day, thanks to Obama Administration stone walling, most of our Benghazi questions to this day have not been answered:
Thanks to Clinton campaign emails released by WikiLeaks we see very clearly just who was politicizing what rather than working to find the truth. The email:
The Daily Caller summarizes:
New documents released by WikiLeaks in connection with its dump of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s email indicate that Democrats on the House Select Committee on Benghazi coordinated with David Kendall, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s long time private counsel.
Kendall, of Williams & Connolly, has represented the Clinton’s since 1993, when he was retained in connection with the Whitewater investigation.
“Benghazi Committe Dems want us to know that Gowdy has just quietly signed up to appear live on FTN this Sunday,” Kendall wrote, in reference to Face the Nation, the CBS Sunday morning political program hosted by John Dickerson. “Apparently, R’s were disappointed in how little media pick up the SB email ‘revelations’ got. I’m not sure there’s much we can do but be forewarned,” he continued, in reference to news that Sidney Blumenthal, a long time Clinton confidant who was banned from joining the administration by White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, was advising Mrs. Clinton in an informal capacity.
The email was sent to Jennifer Palmieri, the campaign’s communications director, and Nick Merrill, Clinton’s traveling press secretary. Senior Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, and Katherine Turner were also copied on the message. All three are lawyers who have counseled Clinton throughout the probe of the private email server she maintained during her tenure as Secretary of State. All three were present when she was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Mills forwarded the email to “firstname.lastname@example.org,” the email address Clinton appears to have been using at the time. The address is no longer active.
“Can we do another video w Brian Fallon or another campaign press person debunking it all before he appears so he has to respond?,” Clinton responded. Fallon is a campaign spokesman.
Trey Gowdy vs the IRS:
This is a classic example of government incompetence that gets Americans killed and makes you want to pull your own hair out. The ARB (Annual Review Board) is a part of the State Department which exists to find and correct mistakes within the department.
Since 1999 the ARB has been pounding that security at State Department facilities such as Beirut, Benghazi, and more have been woefully inadequate. How many lives have been lost because the State Department bureaucracy simply refuses to do its job?
Trey Gowdy uncovers this important truth:
