    Benghazi Committee Backfires as Boehner Refuses to Answer Fundraising Email Questions

    It is falling apart before their eyes..Boehner is backed into a corner.


    Benghazi Committee Backfires as Boehner Refuses to Answer Fundraising Email Questions

    A sign that the latest House Republican Benghazi show investigation is backfiring grew when John Boehner refused to answer questions about why he won’t stop the Republicans from fundraising off of Benghazi.


    that a wise thing to do?

    Boehner: Our focus is getting the truth for these four families and for the American people.

    Q: You are very involved in the fundraising off of this. Why is that happening?

    Boehner: Our focus is on getting the truth for the American people and these four families.

    Q: Four Americans died in Benghazi. Should the NRCC fundraise off of your efforts with the select committee?

    Boehner: Our focus is on getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones. Period.

    Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said Boehner has the ability to shut down the Republican fundraising off of Benghazi right now.

    Rep. Cummings said, “Speaker Boehner can shut this fundraising effort down right now, and he should. You shouldn’t be raising money with regard to this matter.”

    This story is backfiring on the Republicans. The media is already calling the commission a partisan stunt. Believe me, when you aren’t fooling Chuck Todd,*you aren’t fooling anybody. Even worse, loyal Republican talking heads like*Joe Scarborough are calling out Republicans for fundraising off of the Benghazi victims.

    Republicans needed a quick pivot after they were proven completely wrong about Obamacare, so they revived the corpse of a past conspiracy theory. The problem is that literally everyone knows what they are doing, and why they are doing it.

    John Boehner could put an end to the fundraising, but he won’t because Republicans are trying to profit off of the deaths of four Americans. This isn’t new behavior. The Republican Party has fundraised off of 9/11 for more than a decade.

    Oddly, it came from their OWN side about fundraising off Benghazi. They, themselves, put the "memo out" saying not to fundraise on it.

    Democrats had nothing to do with it.

    This should be comical.

    We are a nation composed of minorities, sub-cultures, cultures, and various ethnicities. You do realize white liberals are only one of them.

    They were asking him factual questions. The fact is Boehner could stop this if he was not scared of losing the speakers chair.

    So asking a fact-based question, and expecting an actual response is "bias" now? Interesting...

    But, this is kinda the standard procedure from the right now, isn't it?
    Don't like the ugly truth exposed about yourselves? Attack the media, and insist that its all "their fault".
