Ted Lieu beats up hypocrite McCarthy for supporting the Benghazi investigation however not for a 1/6 probe
MP Ted Lieu (D-CA) asked MP Kevin McCarthy what he was hiding when he supported several investigations in Benghazi but spoke out against the 1/6 commission.
Rep. Lieu tweeted:
@GOPLeader supported several investigations in Benghazi but did not support a non-partisan commission to investigate the January 6 uprising. Why doesn't he want the American people to know what led to January 6th and what happened on the day of the uprising? What is he hiding from people? https://t.co/ZHiGKCxLq5

Republicans had no problem using the bogus investigation in Benghazi to attack Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 election. Benghazi was the entry point for the infamous Clinton email scandal that definitely impacted the 2016 elections.
Given the GOP's past behavior in power during an election year, they would have no qualms about using its platform to launch an investigation during an election year.
The bipartisan support for the Commission is not coming. Democrats must act now and not waste time.
Kevin McCarthy is a hypocrite, and the way to make him pay for his hypocrisy is to start the 9/11 commission and summon him to testify.
