Rather than boycotting, Nancy Pelosi should appoint Alan Grayson to the Benghazi panel so he can give Trey Gowdy's nonsense some counterbalance
Dems Should Appoint Alan Grayson To Benghazi Panel

This is a brilliant idea. Rather than boycotting the Benghazi Select Committee, Nancy Pelosi should appoint Alan Grayson as the sole Democratic representative.

Why? Because he can tear Trey Gowdy and their stupid narrative to shreds with a few key questions.

In the aftermath of the Iraq War, Grayson’s courtroom prowess resulted in millions of dollars in judgments against war profiteers. This skill was on display in September when the congressman used his five minutes as a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee to dismantle conservative Benghazi mythology while questioning Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy:
