I'd like to think the Benghazi train has left the rails and is derailing, but between our media and Republican spin machines, I'm not so sure. Still, yet another Republican has admitted for the record that the Benghazi Select Committee was nothing more than a political hack job on Hillary Clinton, something I told you back in 2013.

ThinkProgress reports:

“Sometimes the biggest sin you can commit in D.C. is to tell the truth,” Hanna said in an interview on Keeler in the Morning, a radio show in upstate New York. The third-term congressman paused for a moment, perhaps recognizing the importance of what he was about to say, before going on to agree with McCarthy’s original statement.

“This may not be politically correct, but I think that there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people and an individual, Hillary Clinton,” Hanna said.

In the inimitable words of Rick Perry, "Oops."
