Tom Cotton on the Democrats’ “outrage” that Republicans are “politicizing” Benghazi:
On the subject of the upcoming hearings, Charles Krauthammer has some good advice:
The select committee will be headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, a skilled 16-year prosecutor. He needs to keep the hearings clean and strictly fact-oriented. Questions only, no speechifying. Every sentence by every GOP committee member must end with a question mark. Should any committee Republican instead make a declarative statement ending in a period, the chairman should immediately, by button, deliver an electric shock through the violator’s seat.
John Adams once said, “Facts are stubborn things.” If the facts come wrapped in rhetoric, the incest media will bury them. However, if they come out of the mouths of witnesses, no matter what the media does, they’ll float up to the surface where the American people can then see the facts for themselves.
