Benghazi hearings aimed to badger Hillary Clinton

On Oct. 22, I listened to an 11-hour-long Benghazi hearing, one preceded by seven previous investigations, resulting in the spending of millions of taxpayer dollars.

I hurt for the families of the Americans killed. They listened to a hearing where, according to Trey Gowdy, the chairman, little if any new information was obtained — no new information that would tell why we lost four courageous Americans. The hearing’s primary aim was to badger and discredit a single witness, Hillary Clinton, not to give any insight as to what happened.

Republicans need to rethink the hearing process; they don’t seem to be doing a very good job of sinking Clinton’s poll numbers. In fact, at the end of the hearing, Secretary Clinton’s looking more and more presidential.
