Pelosi protests new Benghazi committee by declining to appoint Democrats to it for now
Hot Air ^ | MAY 9, 2014 | ALLAHPUNDIT

You can read the full text of the letter she sent to Boehner at the Examiner. Fox News heard from its sources a few hours ago that she was thinking of appointing a single Dem to the committee, which makes sense. She and her caucus want to show people that they think it’s illegitimate, which counsels a boycott, but they also don’t want GOP members having a field day with Democratic witnesses on TV with no Dems on the committee to push back, which counsels participation. Obvious solution: Partial boycott. Let Elijah Cummings participate, rant about a witch hunt and show trial and “evil tree” or whatever, and leave the other Democratic seats on the platform empty. I still think that’s the way they’ll go.

But for now, we’re at an impasse.

Let them boycott. It will be so precious when the many truths of Benghazi are revealed to the American people. And these dem House members will have to answer to their constituents this coming November.

This is a great development. The democrats will do nothing but gum up the process anyway.

WGAF? They are window dressing anyway. They'd all yield their talk time to Elijah Douchebag to squawk and grandstand to try to get everyone to forget that he was the a$$hat who worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS...

At least by not adding them, Pelosi is actually removing any potential leaks from the committee to the Press to try to get out in front of the new email doc dump that just came out.

IIRC,

When the House was investigating former President Clinton it was arranged that the collected evidence was placed in a secure room in the Capital.

All members of the committee, Henry Hyde being the chairman, had access to these records.

Not a single democrat on the committee reviewed these records. Not one - not Barney, not Zoe, ...

Vacant Lott and others of the GOP Senate leadership??? can explain the rest of the story.

The Benghazi committee is “illegitimate” and we’ll prove it by not placing any democrat on the commttee.

But Obamacare is legitimate and in fact is “settled law”, though not ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN voted for it.

Can’t stand these friggin liberal dem hypocrits!

Look like old Nancy is playing politics with the death of 3 American heroes and a dead, corrupt ambassador.

The democrat party is a criminal organization cleverly disguised as a political party.

I’m trying to think of any Dem who would be able to deal with truth and facts on the matter. Every argument I hear coming from Dems is to avoid the subject; to say it has already been investigated; to label it as a political “witch hunt.” Well, I reckon political cover ups beget political witch hunts.

Benghazi is political murder.
