Over 100 House Republicans want a full-scale investigation of Benghazi, which means a full-scale investigation of Hillary Clinton’s role in the disaster. John Boehner is not one of them.
Boehner thinks a report by various executive branch bureaucrats is all we need.
He is having trouble keeping the lid on. There is a revolt brewing.
A full-scale investigation of any scandal in government never takes place. The hotter the potato, politically speaking, the less full-scale any investigation will be.
Still, it would be fun to see a partial investigation. This would be the question: “How fouled up was the Department of State? Totally, or merely extremely?”
So, let us hope that Boehner loses his stand against an investigation. Every hour that Congressmen spend on an investigation, they are not attending hearings on the latest multi-billion dollar boondoggle.
