Loudmouth Idiot Cummings Calls Benghazi Chair A Liar, Demands He Apologize To Hillary
Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi, demanded Chairman Trey Gowdy apologize to Hillary Clinton for accusing “her of compromising national security and endangering lives” in a Sunday letter.
Cummings criticized Gowdy for rushing out an Oct. 7 letter claiming Clinton “received classified information from [Sid] Blumenthal — information she should have known was classified at the time she received it … [and] forwarded that email to a colleague — debunking her claim that she never sent any classified information from her private email address.” (VIDEO — Benghazi Chair: ‘Shut Up Talking About Things You Know Nothing About’)
Cummings called Gowdy’s accusations “incorrect” and criticized him for proceeding without checking first with the C.I.A.:
The CIA yesterday informed both the Republican and Democratic staffs of the Select Committee that they do not consider the information you highlighted in your letter to be classified. Specifically, the CIA confirmed that “the State Department consulted with the CIA on this production, the CIA reviewed these documents, and the CIA made no redactions to protect classified information.” …
Unfortunately, the standard operating procedure of this Select Committee has become to put out information publicly that is inaccurate and out of context in order to attack Secretary Clinton for political reasons. These repeated actions bring discredit on this investigation and undermine the integrity of the Select Committee and the House of Representatives.
