Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called out the Republican party this week, saying that they are not concerned with emails as much as they are with finding dirt to use against Hillary Clinton in her anticipated run for president.
Clinton has been under the spotlight for the last few weeks after it was revealed that she used a personal email account during her time in the State Department. This might not be as big of a deal because she has willingly handed over all the work-related emails; but House Speaker John Boehner can’t seem to let it go, especially after finding out that she deleted 30,000 emails.
Instead of giving up on a wild goose chase that might lead to emails that would supposedly help them tear down Clinton’s reputation (maybe), Boehner is insisting on a full investigation. And investigations aren’t cheap. According to Politicus USA, the Republicans spend $14 million on the Benghazi investigations.
Funds for these investigations come straight from the pockets of tax-paying Americans. Pelosi called this a “partisan” investigation that is a waste of money.
Seriously though. It seems like a waste of time and money to focus on a few emails. Are they really going to find anything that’s going to help them out so much that they win the election? Highly doubtful. Why not use that money to make some posters or something?
