‘If John Boehner has to sound like a mentally ill conspiracy theorist in order to attack Clinton and Obama, so be it’.
‘Speaker of the House John Boehner went off the rails today by putting on his tin foil hat and claiming that President Obama is making it impossible for Republicans to get to “the facts” on Benghazi’.
‘There have been seven previous Congressional investigations in Benghazi, and all have found no wrongdoing on the part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the White House’.
‘A two-year investigation into Benghazi by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee found that the CIA and the military acted appropriately and that there was also no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees’.
But NOW……..’It’s a cover up’.
‘ThinkProgress notes, the press release Schweizer cites was revealed as a hoax back in 2013’.
‘This is called “throwing everything at the wall to see if something sticks”.
“creating enough “smoke” that people naturally start to believe there must be something to the charges or all these accusations wouldn’t be out there”.
‘Schweizer explains he cannot prove the allegations, leaving that up to investigative journalists and possibly law enforcement’.
“Short of someone involved coming forward to give sworn testimony, we don’t know what might or might not have been said in private conversations, the exact nature of the transition, or why people in power make the decision they do,” he writes’.
So “he doesn’t know”. Just writes a bunch of stuff. No evidence. No witness. Nothing.
So Republican politics as usual.
‘Later, he concludes, “We cannot ultimately know what goes on in their minds and ultimately provide the links between the money they took and the benefits that subsequently accrued to themselves, their friends, and their associates.”

“We learned that the Rand Paul campaign had been selling Ray-Ban sunglasses imprinted with the “Rand” logo without our consent,” Jane Lehman, who handles corporate media at Luxottica, Ray-Ban’s public relations firm, wrote in an email to The Hill’.
‘So let me get this right’:
“One picture on Paul’s website showed President John F. Kennedy wearing the iconic glasses atop his head next to a picture of Paul with a similar pair of glasses.”
“I can hear Senator Bentsen now, ‘I knew Jack Kennedy and you’re no Jack Kennedy,’ ” a caption on the site said. “Well, you and I may not be Jack Kennedy, but Rand likes Raybans and now we can all own Rand branded Raybans.”
“$150 is more than you might normally pay for sunglasses, but these are Raybans and even more, they are indelibly marked with the Rand Brand … and as always, it’s a contribution to the Rand Paul for President campaign,” the site said.”
