Feinstein: Benghazi Committee a ‘Hunting Mission for a Lynch Mob’

On CNN’s State of the Union yesterday, Candy Crowley asked Senator Dianne Feinstein about the House’s Republican-led select committee on Benghazi and whether the Senate would take up another Benghazi investigation as well. But Feinstein considered it nothing but a waste of time and told Crowley, “I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob, actually. That’s what’s going on.”

Feinstein cited all the major reports and investigations that have already taken place to look into the Benghazi attacks, but even with the Ben Rhodes memo critics have cited as a smoking gun, Feinstein still argued there’s little to no point in continuing to pursue a case the Congress has already taken on.

She expressed confidence that all the questions about Benghazi have been answered, even as a recent poll shows a majority of Americans approve of the select committee. National Security Advisor Susan Rice admitted recently she couldn’t possibly imagine what information about the Benghazi attacks and how the administration handled the aftermath hasn’t already come out.
