Kevin McCarthy slipped up while talking to Fox News about the Benghazi select committee, good for Hillary Clinton, bad for Republicans.

Off The Grid Fiorina is full of shit. Can I be anymore blunt? She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. I’ve been waterboarded. I know what it is and I’ve looked at the facts. Why do you think we don’t let police departments torture? Because it’s already been proven that when you torture someone, all
