Rachel Explains The Term 'Witch Hunt' For Pete Sessions (By Way Of Monty Python)

1 year ago by Scarce

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has a bit of fun with the inanity that is otherwise known as Pete Sessions. Critics have charged the announced Select Committee on Benghazi will amount to nothing more than a partisan ' witch hunt'. With some background on the Salem witch hunts from the 17th century, before going back even further with a sketch from Monty Python's "Holy Grail" where villagers accuse a woman of witchcraft. Sessions isn't just some rank-and-file knucklehead either, but was once the chairman of the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee).

REP. PETE SESSIONS (R-TX) “[Democrats] would blame our insistence upon getting the truth as a political ‘witch hunt.’ Well, Mr. Speaker, that must mean that there’s a witch somewhere.”
