Hillary Clinton ran her first national advertisement this week. It featured House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy making it clear (accidentally) that the Benghazi hearings were all about Hillary’s poll numbers. She’s now doubling down with a second attack ad on this same issue. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) addressed his recent comments about the Benghazi committee again on Wednesday, urging people to “stop playing politics.”
McCarthy last week touted the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s success in hurting Hillary Clinton, prompting outcries from Democrats that the committee was formed for political reasons.
“Let’s be very clear: Benghazi is not political,” McCarthy said when asked about his comments at a press conference with House leadership, according to National Journal. “It was created for one purpose and one purpose only: to find the truth on behalf of the families of the four dead Americans. Period.””*
