Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” long-time Clinton ally James Carville said the House Benghazi Select Committee chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is a conspiracy to attack Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton by New Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch and political activists the Koch Brothers.
Carville said, “I got an idea for some of that media, why don’t you see that this is true. Trey Gowdy is a creation of the Koch brothers and the whole crime of denial industry. This committee was nothing but a creation of Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers. Fox ran over 1,000 segments in 20 months after this thing. This is according to not only Kevin McCarthy, the guy from upstate New York, the Air Force major who is a life-long Republican. This is a taxpayer-funded, understand, taxpayer-funded partisan operation that they’re running there. There have been seven, seven congressional committees that have looked into this and issued reports. In addition to Admiral Mullen and the ambassador, they can ask what they want but they have already exposed themselves for what they are. They are no more interested in finding out anything. All they’re interested in is driving her poll numbers down. They have admitted as much. It’s just a fact. He got into Congress because the Koch Brothers put him there. Fact-check it. I’m right here. Everybody fact-check it.”
