Senate Democrats Demand Benghazi Committee Reimburse Taxpayers $5.4 Million For ‘Investigation’

It’s been clear to most observers that the House Benghazi committee was nothing more than a political witch hunt aimed squarely at Hillary Clinton.

And now that several committee members have confirmed their main goal was to hurt Clinton politically, top Democrats want the committee to reimburse taxpayers the $5.4 million it’s wasted thus far:

The senators, including Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), accused the GOP Wednesday of “operating a political opposition machine against Secretary Clinton,” and called the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s use of taxpayer funds “wholly inappropriate.””Over the past several weeks, several House Republicans have made clear what many observers have suspected all along: that the Select Committee has conducted a political inquisition aimed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” the senators wrote in a letter to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.

“We firmly believe the Committee should be disbanded, and that every penny of taxpayer money that has financed this purely political committee ought to be repaid,” the letter continued.

Wow! Good job, Harry Reid! These so-called “fiscal conservatives” have no problem wasting millions of dollars when it comes to needless investigations and it’s time to pay the piper.
