The Day After the Election, Mike Rogers Finally Decides To Do His Job

On October 2, 26 days ago and over a month before the election, I asked why Darrell Issa, rather than House Intelligence Chair Mike Rogers, was leading an investigation into the Benghazi attack.

Issa’s subsequent investigation worked out as expected: a big showy hearing, sensitive information revealed, and a month of misleading leaks. Even Dana Milbank realized having Issa lead investigation didn’t make sense.

Lo and behold, today, the day after the election, the House Intelligence Committee has revealed that they–like their counterpart in the Senate–will conduct an investigation.

Finally! A serious investigation rather than a transparent effort to trump up an October Surprise.

emptywheel @thegrugq Agree. But also, calls with Merkel (which include MoCs, presumably) one of few things that concerns MoCs.

emptywheel @NoahShachtman Especially appreciate the retired General saying there's no reason the govt needs a "monopoly" on this stuff.

bmaz @armandodkos @MarcACaputo Shockingly little general focus on Chevron though. I am stunned.

emptywheel @CUEwindsearch No. You sign NDAs when you work w/govt. Snowden did. That's why he's being prosecuted. @korch
