California Senator Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) denounced Republicans for investigating the terror attacks in Benghazi and praised Hillary Clinton for her reaction to the incidents.
Boxer took the Senate floor on Tuesday and labeled the House Select Committee on Benghazi a “sham,” a “political witch-hunt,” a “kangaroo court,” and a “waste of taxpayer dollars.” She also suggested that Republicans were only concerned with hurting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 elections.
Boxer praised Clinton’s response to the attacks, reminding Republicans that the former secretary of state was the first to call for an independent investigation.
Boxer also criticized Republicans for calling the attacks a scandal.
Boxer reminded Republicans of multiple terrorist attacks around the world where Americans were killed, but she insisted that the Democratic Party never used it for political gain.
Boxer also denounced Republicans for their eagerness to investigate the attacks in Benghazi, though they did not look into the scandal of the Iraq War.
