7. Remember Joseph McCarthy?

 

I suppose not.

Anyway, this is how history will similarly frame Benghazi.

9. GOHMERT CALLS FOR A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE BENGHAZI

Louie Louie



While Senate Republicans call for a “Watergate-style” special joint committee to probe the administration’s failure to prevent American deaths in Benghazi, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is advocating another tactic employed in the famous scandal: the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate.

Backed by a 100,000-signature petition presented by conservative military organization Special Operations Speaks, Gohmert made his case at a Thursday press conference outside the Capitol.

“We need to know when the commander-in-chief became aware that the people that were dying under his command were actually out there needing help. We need to have answers,” he said.

Famously, Congress appointed Archibald Cox as special independent prosecutor in the Watergate scandal. Since then, the statute governing such appointments has expired, but Gohmert noted that the move was still possible in cases with suspected conflicts of interest.

11. That law expired a few years ago, btw


They can call for one all they want.

Just like I can call for a team of special foot masseuses.

But, it's not going to happen.
