Rep. Jason Chaffetz says Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy should apologize for linking the congressional investigation into the Benghazi terror attack to Hillary Clinton’s sliding poll numbers.
Reports The Hill:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz says Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) should apologize for his comments about the Benghazi Committee, calling them “absolutely wrong.”
“I’m very supportive of Kevin McCarthy, but those statements are just absolutely inappropriate. They should be withdrawn; Mr. McCarthy should apologize. I think it was absolutely wrong,” Chaffetz (R-Utah) said on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on Thursday.
“We want to answer those questions, but to suggest that there was any sort of political motivation is absolutely – it’s not fair to Mr. Gowdy, it’s not fair to myself, and most importantly it’s not fair to those four families who lost those loved ones,” Chaffetz said, a reference to Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).
“That’s not why we’re doing this.”
