Kevin McCarthy gleefully admitted to Sean Hannity Tuesday night that the entire purpose of the Benghazi Select Committee was to hurt Hillary Clinton's political chances.

Reaction on Twitter was almost immediate:

Oh, I love it when they confess. Perhaps Pope Francis' visit did some good, at least.

This has always been Republicans' goal. Remember when the Groundswell group met?

In May, 2013, General Jerry Boykin said this:

"We are not backing away from our call for a special committee with subpoena power, bipartisan, to try and get to the bottom of this whole Benghazi situation. In the end, I think what we're going to find is there was malfeasance, there was ineptitude, and there was a huge deception that went on before, during and after this whole thing. And I think that what we'll find today is that Hillary Clinton made some egregious decisions and the president was basically absent from his post and did not make the decisions that as the Commander in Chief he should have been making and because he was focused on some other things so--. "

In other words, let's make this about Hillary Clinton, shall we? Later in that same meeting, Breitbart News' Steve Bannon leapt in cautioning the group to be careful not to go after Hillary too soon, but to focus on getting the Select Committee first.

Therefore, this should have come as no surprise to anyone, but because our librul media has the memory of a goat --and I may be being mean to goats-- they just carried on with all the bullshit Benghazi stories and let the likes of Joe Scarborough pick up the reins and run with the smears.

Can you help us out?
