Dear Editor:

After 18 months of Benghazi-Benghazi-Benghazi and 13 hearings by eight GOP House committees, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) decided to appoint a select committee to investigate — Benghazi! Why pay lawyers more tax dollars for another merry-go-round of political theatrics? Boehner said a new email smoking gun will reveal new light. I think not!

Just a side note. Under Bush-43 many embassies were attacked, with numerous killings. Why did the GOP Congress avoid hearings?

Folks, when you look past the smoke and mirrors, the Republican House plans reveal two political strategies.

1) Destroy Hillary Clinton’s chances to become America’s 45th president.

2) Revenge! Republicans want to link Obama to a new political scandal — Benghazigate!

This would allow, for the third time, a GOP House impeachment of a president. (Andrew Johnson and William Clinton). By removing Barack Obama from office, they would get even for what the Democrats did to Richard Nixon over his 1972 election: Watergate scandal!

Kudos to Congressional Democrats for their decision to not “partake” in Speaker John Boehner’s clever political ruse!
