Democrats Won't Boycott the Benghazi Committee
Will Democrats boycott the Benghazi committee? Nope. Yesterday Nancy Pelosi announced the five Democratic members of the committee:
- Elijah Cummings of Maryland
- Tammy Duckworth of Illinois
- Linda Sánchez of California
- Adam Schiff of California
- Adam Smith of Washington
This ends days of speculation about a possible boycott, and will probably disappoint a lot of people who didn't want to provide Republicans with a veneer of respectability for their Benghazi witch hunt. But longtime political leaders rarely withdraw from the political process in order to make a point, so this decision isn't surprising. The fireworks should begin shortly.
