The Select Committee to investigate Benghazi is “fraught with political peril”, Fox News’ Political Insiders, Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen, and a very hoarse John LeBoutillier made clear on Sunday evenings show with host Harris Faulkner.
If the committee ends up looking political it will be a victory for Democrats. That’s why Democrats are trying so hard to paint it as such, and the stupid party isn’t helping by already trying to fund-raise off of it.
As of Sunday evening, there was no word from the RNC, that the fund-raising was going to stop, Pat Caddell lamented. Inexcusable.
While it’s of course true that Democrats can fund-raise off of anything they want and not get called out on it by the MSM – Republicans are held to a higher standard, and they should be aware of the bad optics, here. No one ever said politics in America is fair.
Trey Gowdy has made clear interview after interview that he wants a fair investigation.
Pat Caddell said, “what is disturbing most of all – I say this as a Democrat – is why no one in my party has felt as some Republicans at least did during Watergate – that we deserve to know the truth of what happened. I have heard more outrageous spin and lies about how there’s nothing to know, or whatever for the purpose of politics —when it involves American Security, a dead Ambassador and dead Americans. It is outrageous about our political system.”
