Four years, seven committees, and millions of dollars later, the Republican Benghazi witch hunt of Hillary 'inexplicably' shuts down overnight. 

Of course, it's worth noting that, despite this inquiry being the longest congressional inquiry of any single American event in history - and that's taking into account the Kennedy assassination, for Christ's sake - the committee was unable to find anything at all worth pursuing. But let's be honest, the inquiry helped accomplish exactly what it was supposed to accomplish. Republicans launched this inquiry during the 2012 election, in the hopes that the mere appearance of impropriety would weaken Obama's chances at reelection, (as when Romney was smacked down by Candy Crowley for falsely saying that Obama had refused to call the Benghazi attack an 'act of terror'). But when that didn't work, they escalated and prolonged the attacks to focus on Obama's likely successor, Hillary Clinton. And even after the committee officially wrapped up its work in July, it continued to seek out further information until now. I wonder if they'd be closing down if Hillary had won. I suppose those four dead Americans don't matter so much anymore, now that the real mission of the Benghazi committee has been accomplished. 

The disgusting irony, of course, is that these are the same people who are now saying Americans should just 'get over' the fact that Russia meddled in the American electoral process, in an effort to sway the election in favor of Donald Trump. No special subcommittees needed; nothing to see here.

What could be the mere reason why Benghazi committee suddenly shuts down. Whatever the reason is, the readers wouldn't know. This committee has been very familiar for every American since they are part of the country's election history. Some news may not be pleasing for many, but publicity is still a publicity. I hope they will soon realize that serving the country is the best thing to do than anything else.

We should be able to respect their own decision. I believe that neither us or you can really know why the Benghazi committee chose to shut down. I do not look at an object on one side only. I choose to base my judgement and opinions from hearing both sides. Let us not point fingers here and allow both sides to make their own rebuttals.
