“2. Secretary Clinton, as you know, seven other congressional committees have investigated the Benghazi attack. Is there anything they missed that we should be looking into?
Of course, if Gowdy and the Republican members ask this question, they will have to try to explain why their committee exists at all (other than the anti-Clinton reason that everyone knows) unless they are willing to criticize other Republican Benghazi committees for not doing an adequate job, such as the Republican-controlled House Armed Services and Intelligence committees, which published extensive reports and findings about Benghazi.
3. Secretary Clinton, did your choice to use a single BlackBerry to send out emails during your tenure as secretary of State rather than two, or your decision to store emails on a private server at your home, have any impact whatsoever on the tragic events of what happened at Benghazi and its aftermath?
Of course, the truthful — and indisputable — answer to this question is: No. Gowdy and his fellow Republicans know this. ”

“Clinton, while saying she ‘took responsibility’ over Benghazi, faced frustrated GOP committee members throughout the lengthy hearing Thursday as she accepted little blame for the denial of security requests before the strike, and for the faulty narrative about an anti-Islam video that formed after.
‘There is no doubt in my mind that we did the best we could with the information we had at the time,’ Clinton declared, during a tense exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.
Jordan grilled Clinton on why the administration initially seemed to blame protests over an anti-Islam film.
‘Where'd the false narrative start? It started with you, Madam Secretary,’ he charged, pointing to a State Department statement that night saying some were using the video to justify violence.”
