Hillary Clinton, of course, has already testified before Benghazi committees before. She’s answered all the questions, and it’s hard to imagine there are going to be many new Benghazi issues brought up on Thursday, because this ground has already been so thoroughly covered. What was supposed to happen, as far as the Republicans were concerned, was a thorough grilling of Clinton, exposing her for the arch-fiend they truly knew she was. Embarrassing soundbites would be in the news, and anti-Clinton PACs would have lots of fodder for attack ads to run against her. That was the plan, at any rate.
Now, however, the focus will be on the questioners themselves. Hillary can now afford to play offense while they have been reduced to playing defense. The soundbites on the news may be the most partisan and slanted questions asked, and not the answers. Republican committee members may even now be revising the questions they were planning on asking, because they likely won’t be able to get away with saying what they really wanted to say.
I’m actually looking forward to Thursday because the Republicans have most definitely overplayed their hand. Everyone is going to be watching and Trey Gowdy and his bunch of slack-jawed yokels are going to have to be very careful.
And look what I found…
