Republicans Hammer Hanna For His Irresponsible Benghazi Comments

Richard Hanna, the Democrat sheep in Republican clothing, recently made comments suggesting that the Benghazi Committee investigation was nothing more than a partisan attack on Hillary Clinton.

During an interview on the Keeler in the Morning show, Hanna claimed that “there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people, an individual, Hillary Clinton.”

It’s a statement that can only be seen as a lifeline to Clinton, who was Secretary of State at the time of the Benghazi terror attacks, and who helped craft a false narrative that the Obama administration had ignored security concerns about terrorist attacks at the consulate, and were instead blindsided by a YouTube video.

Hanna’s colleague’s are fighting back, however.

Benghazi committee chairman Trey Gowdy released a statement basically accusing Hanna, who is not, nor ever has been on the committee, of not knowing what the hell he’s talking about.

“There are seven members of the Benghazi Committee who are intimately familiar with the work of the committee, the motives behind the work, and the results of that work,” Gowdy explained.  “Congressman Hanna is not one of them.”

He added that “The Members of the committee do not discuss its work in Conference, and Mr. Hanna has never asked for a briefing by the committee staff.”

Gowdy went on to say he had reached out multiple times to Hanna about any concerns he might have and heard no complaints.  He also suggested that Hanna not “offer thoughts on matters on which (he is) not familiar.”

Republican Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, who narrowly fell to Hanna in last year’s Senate primary, also issued a statement strongly condemning his comments on the investigation.

“Hanna’s comments on the Benghazi Committee’s investigation are insensitive and offensive to the four Americans who lost their lives in this brutal attack,” she said.

“Hanna is jumping to the defense of Hillary Clinton, now under federal investigation, who deceived the American people while Secretary of State by issuing false statements about the attack,” Tenney continued.

The Assemblywoman also pointed out that Hanna “was the only Republican in New York who refused to sign on as a co-sponsor to HR 36, the resolution that established the Select Committee on Benghazi,” only doing so almost a year-and-a-half later when he came under pressure.

Hanna never wanted to investigate Clinton’s role in Benghazi and has instead graduated to defending her deplorable actions.  He’d rather attack Republicans than find out what happened to four dead Americans.
