Did you hear? The Benghazi investigation is finally over.

The special congressional investigation into the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi is officially over now that the panel filed its final report the day before the House adjourned for the year. 

The Select Committee on Benghazi initially released its findings in June but remained in place for months afterward trying to declassify supporting documents like emails and interview transcripts for public release. 

The final report, not including dissenting views from committee Democrats, clocks in at more than 322,000 words. It was added to the official House record without fanfare on Dec. 7 by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the panel’s chairman. 

The panel, which spent more than $7.8 million over two and a half years, disbanded at the end of the 114th Congress, before a new Congress begins in January.

This was of course the eighth investigation into the Benghazi attack and not one of them found anything significant.

So why did it take so long for this last committee to file its report?

Oh I think you know why.

Democrats contended all along that the committee was a political effort to taint Clinton, an allegation that got some traction when House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News that because of the committee, "her numbers are dropping." 

The panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said Monday that the final report was a “desperate rehash.” 

“Republicans voted on this partisan report five months ago, but delayed filing it and completing the committee until after the election,” Cummings said. “Republicans promised a process that was fair and bipartisan, but the American people got exactly the opposite.”

Yes it, just like the Russian hacks and the Comey letter, existed only to destroy Hillary Clinton's chances of winning the presidency.

Filing the report before the election would have only helped Hillary, and of course Trey Gowdy and his fellow witch hunters could not allow that, now could they?

    When I see this guy, the theme from "Deliverence" starts playing in my head. Duelling banjoes is one of my favorites, but this dumb looking person almost ruined it for me. Not to worry, I still like the music. Why does the gop have so many members with "punchable" faces, such as Issa, tRump, Ryan, McConnell? Do they have to be homely to be a member of their party? It goes without saying that "dumb, money grubbing" are admirable traits for them also. They got themselves a prize in tRump, dumbest of them all, plus the most corrupt.

    ot? Because JESUS!
    "a steady stream of legal decisions confirms that such court-ordered treatment is illegal."such coercion has declared that the 12 Steps are religious in nature, and that it violates a parolee’s or probationer’s First Amendment rights for a court to require AA attendance when the 12-step philosophy violates the individual’s belief system."In fact, it remains standard practice."

  4. Unless for any reason, the Electoral College makes Hillary President.

    Then look for that Benghazi investigation to rise from the walking dead and start to jog again.

    Oh come on, they only spend 2.5 years and $7.8 million, surely they can form another committee to keep themselves busy for another year or so.

    That way they will not have to investigate the real crime: the stolen 2016 election and treason committed by the RNC, Traitor Trump and his campaign staff.

    O/T Another settlement in the making?

    Judge refuses to cancel or limit Trump deposition

    A judge has refused President-elect Donald Trump's request to cancel or limit a deposition he's scheduled to give at Trump Tower early next month in a lawsuit he filed over abandoned plans for a restaurant at his new Washington hotel.

    D.C. Superior Court Judge Jennifer Di Toro issued an order Wednesday turning down Trump's lawyers' motion to scuttle the planned testimony in a case Trump's companies filed against firms owned by Washington celebrity chef Jose Andres. Andres canceled plans for a Spanish restaurant at the new Trump International Hotel, after Trump disparaged Mexicans during his campaign launch in 2015......
