The Cuban protests aren’t about vaccines just like Benghazi wasn’t about a YouTube video.
Democrats fear the truth.

On Qevin McCarthy's latest stunt
Speaker Pelosi gave GOP a 50/50 committee. 35 House Republicans joined to vote yes. It was Republican Mitch McConnell who rejected it in the Senate. Blame Mitch
Speaker Pelosi used Benghazi rules for the Select Committee. Exactly same GOP rules https://t.co/ISTWXVAGdq
Do what you gotta do Kevin, but THE SPEAKER has spoken! Remember Benghazi, was it partisan then as well?
Keep in mind that the Benghazi committee didn't work out for the Republicans. The goal was to drive down Hillary's numbers, but they were still high by the time that committee was done. Even from a cutthroat standpoint, the Benghazi committee was not a blueprint for success.
Nobody cared that the Benghazi Committee was effectively designed around finding something to harm Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Seems like a lot of hypocrisy today.
Remember McCarthy bragged that the House GOP's investigation into the Benghazi attack had made Hillary Clinton's poll numbers plummet. He presented it as part of a "strategy to fight and win," rather than a nonpartisan effort to find the truth.

Benghazi ain't going away! #BenghaziAintGoingAway
NEWS: Kevin McCarthy will pull all his picks to January 6 Select Committee.
Benghazi them !
Oh FFS likely this was his plan all along. Weird how he forgot Benghazi and the offer of a bipartisan commission. https://t.co/i5rRuJ9XOU
Sorry your sources aren't going to get to serve on the committee, Rachael. I'm sure you can find some other crazies to leak to you, like you did during the BENGHAZI fervor that you were the main MSM conduit for. https://t.co/5gvGWi0Dvp
This is right of course but furthermore, this is the exact same process used to create the Benghazi Committee. To the letter. https://t.co/EJVJaJcucm
For any congressional investigative committee to succeed, it has to be seen by the AVERAGE AMERICAN as being "fair." If they think the committee is biased, they'll just write off its conclusions. It's why the Benghazi probe, for all its noise, accomplished nothing for the GOP.
McCarthy: Please join us in writing our report "George Floyd Did Benghazi"
Pelosi: Uh, no?
Politico: The Speaker just politicized this process
Republicans worry the 1/6 committee will be partisan? Benghazi was investigated for 4 years, Hillary testified for 11 hrs & after it was done, she was vindicated but not until the 2016 election was over. This investigation will stick to facts & be done fairly,GOP's greatest fear.
No Gym Jordan, the committee won't be any more partisan than any of those 33 Benghazi committees were. Don't worry about it, boys.
It’s worth noting how farcical and desperate McCarthy’s actions are.
Pelosi privately rejected his two Trojan horse nominees to the 1/6 Committee.
Now he’s threatening to run his own “investigation.”
But he has no subpoena power.
The Benghazi playbook won’t work anymore. https://t.co/HXzQakuF73
[Shrug] How many Libyans were on the Benghazi committees?
Basically, the GOP is treating the 1/6 riots the way Democrats treated Benghazi. They know something really bad happened that hurts their political party, but they have no interest in letting the other political party continue to rub their nose in it. That’s really all this is.
Curiously, the Benghazi select committee, dreamed up by your Republican colleagues, was the basis for the rules for this committee. i look forward to seeing #tfg testify for 11 hours about what he knew about January 6. Come to think of it, I look forward to your testimony, too.
This McCarthy line from '15 also is instructive to the back-and-forth over the Jan 6 cmte:
“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why?"
He conveniently forgets how the Benghazi investigations were run.
Republicans are ranting and raving because Pelosi kicked 2 Republicans off the January 6th Commission. Don't ever forget McCarthy voted against a January 6th Commission even when he got everything he asked for. GOP should be ashamed. Remember Benghazi?
“Jim’s a smart guy, but he is unbelievably dishonest.”
served on the Benghazi select committee with Rep. Jim Jordan and says there’s a reason Republicans want him in all hearings. “He has a very specific mission here: he is going to bully witnesses into submission.”
Rachael’s take in particular makes perfect sense once you remember that she was Trey Gowdy’s stenographer during the Benghazi sham hearings.
1) This is Rachael Bade's wishful thinking about "Speaker McCarthy."
2) Rachael was a major Benghazi truther.
3) The framing of this as being all Democrats' fault is deplorable.
4) Democrats have to stop fearing what Republicans will do in the future. Just do what is right. https://t.co/NbwvFPwMEl
