According to conservatives, you can’t question legal rulings — if a grand jury said that Darren Wilson didn’t need to be tried then it’s absolute, and it cannot be questioned. If something like eight Congressional committees said that there’s no conspiracy behind Benghazi, then they can’t be questioned, and they’re absolute.
I didn’t type that with a straight face and I hope you didn’t read that with one.
A few days after Lindsey “The Brown People Are Gonna Kill Us We Gotta Bomb Someone Pronto” Graham condemned the Intelligence Committee’s report on Benghazi as “full of crap,” incoming House Oversight Committee chair Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) threw his hat in with Graham.
The latest waste of your tax dollars to feed the never ending querulous paranoia driving the Republicans (and you elected these people; good job, America) cleared the Obama administration of any wrongdoing during the September 11, 2012 attacks on the Libyan consulate.
Just like the other ones.
Chaffetz, however, wasn’t convinced. He told the Salt Lake Tribune in an interview published on Wednesday that he thought “Lindsey Graham [was] probably right” and that he based that off “knowing as much as I do about Benghazi.” He agrees with Graham, so clearly this man is a fountain of knowledge in regards to the attack; I’m sure you could squeeze everything he knows into a Planck length. It’s impressive stuff, really.
Chaffetz, however, noted that he’s going to leave further investigation into the so-called “Benghazi scandal” to the crack geniuses on the select committee:
I know Trey Gowdy and the select committee will get to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I think it’s fair to wait and see what that committee comes up with.
I’m sure he will. In the meantime, I’d like to leave you with a quote:
Let the Benghazi witch hunts continue, but for God’s sake, man, don’t you dare suggest that black teenager didn’t didn’t deserve to die and don’t you dare suggest that the grand jury was rigged. All legal rulings are final, unless conservatives disagree with them.
