Hey, did you all know that the Benghazi hearings were still a thing?

Former CIA Director David Petraeus faced questions on Wednesday from a House committee investigating the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, as the inquiry entered its third calendar year — and a presidential election year.
Petraeus was the first of four former Obama administration officials scheduled to appear before the Republican-led committee in the next week. The committee will question former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Friday.
All four interviews were set to be conducted behind closed doors.
The panel's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., told reporters that about a dozen interviews remain, including sessions with national security adviser Susan Rice and Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes. The Benghazi committee hopes to release a report "within the next few months," said spokesman Matt Wolking.
Okay so I guess the strategy is to first attack Hillary's feminist credentials by accusing her of enabling Bill's affairs, second is to keep kicking the dead Benghazi horse in the hopes that it will finally fart out something useful, and then if that does not work I assume that somebody will heave a kitchen sink at her at some point.
If the GOP keeps scraping the bottom of the barrel like this they are likely to dig themselves all the way to China.
