GOP Shamed After Benghazi Report Gives No New Evidence Against Clinton

Offering no new evidence against Hillary Clinton, the 800-page Benghazi report is the culmination of a two year witch hunt on the former Secretary of State.

The GOP, which is already responsible for creating a monster of a presidential candidate, has put their foot in their mouth – but won’t admit it. As usual, social media went in flames while roasting the Republican party.

The Republican Party wrongly accused Hillary Clinton, the then-Secretary of State, of being responsible for the death of four U.S. citizens during a terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic offices in Libya on September 11, 2012.

After spending $7 million of tax-payers’ dollars on a two-year investigation, the GOP has concluded that the Benghazi attacks were the result of a slow military response and found no new evidence against Hillary Clinton.

What's more, as Twitter user Susan Davis pointed out, more effort was put into the Benghazi report by the Republicans than the 9/11 Commission report:

While speaking to the public, Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) refused to admit that the Democratic presidential nominee did not lie about her involvement in the Benghazi attack, but instead blamed the Obama administration more generally.

“Read the report,” he said to reporters, shirking direct responsibility. Twitter had a field day with Gowdy's repeated pointing to the report, instead of directly answering reorter's questions. 

The Democrats called the process which resulted in an 800-page report a “conspiracy theory on steroids, bringing back long-debunked allegations with no credible evidence whatsoever.”

By the GOP denying that they were wrong to drag Clinton through a two year investigation, they only prove how spineless they are.

They have not only supported Donald Trump through his unabashedly racist campaign, but have shown their misogynistic roots lie deeper than some rude remarks that Trump has made about women. 

Clinton's own response to the Republican's witch hunt is worth watching, as it offers her a chance to prove what she is: human.
