Pelosi

Sure it is, Nancy.

Via The Hill:

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says newly released White House emails prompted him to launch a special investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack. But Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has a different theory.

The Democratic leader argued Friday that GOP leaders created the select committee simply to silence House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), whose months-long probe into the tragedy has come under scrutiny, even by some top Republicans.

“Issa just is damaged goods,” Pelosi said during a Friday press briefing in the Capitol. “They had to move from him to another venue with another chairman. That’s what this is.”

Known for his fiery rhetoric and sharp partisan attacks on the Obama administration, Issa has long-been the subject of Democratic criticism over his months-long investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which killed four Americans.
