In the days since House Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy bragged to FOX’s Sean Hannity the real reason for the Republican driven Benghazi investigative committee – to drive down Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers – McCarthy has unsuccessfully attempted to walk back his “inartful” statements.
