A couple of very interesting moments occurred today when Hillary Clinton appeared before the Benghazi committee. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) opened things up with an epic rant, excoriating anyone and everyone who has ever suggested the Benghazi hearings were about Hillary Clinton.
“Madame Secretary, I understand some people — frankly in both parties — have suggested this investigation is about you. Let me assure you it is not. And let me assure you why it is not. This work is about something much more important than any single person. It is about four U.S. government workers, including our Ambassador, murdered by terrorists on foreign soil. It is about what happened before, during, and after the attacks that killed these four men.
It is about what this country owes those who risk their lives to serve it. It is about the fundamental obligation of our government to tell the truth — always — to the American people. Not a single member of this Committee signed up for an investigation into you or your email system. We signed up because we wanted to honor the service and sacrifice of four people sent to a foreign land to represent us – who were killed – and do everything we can to prevent it from happening to others.”

In an email that the American people had no idea existed until it was unveiled, Clinton is seen telling the Egyptian President (less than 24 hours after the attack) that the Libyan embassy was attacked by Ansar al Sharia and that it had nothing to do with a video!
