“It may be smart politics but it is a lousy way to run a serious investigation”
October 22, 2015
After months of calling the Benghazi investigation a partisan attempt to bring down her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton today arrived on Capitol Hill, and was immediately subjected to a dressing down from the leading Republican on the investigative committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy.

I’m here to honor those we lost, and to do what I can to aid those who serve us still,” she added.
