McCarthy Says Benghazi Panel Helped Drive Down Clinton’s Numbers

“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Tuesday. “But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would’ve known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen.”

  • “What you’re going to see is a conservative speaker that takes a conservative Congress that puts a strategy to fight and win,” says McCarthy, favored to succeed John Boehner as House speaker, offering Clinton point as “one example”
  • NOTE: Boehner and Chairman Trey Gowdy have said committee’s work is a nonpartisan exercise to obtain more information about the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead
