Boehner Demands Email

After yesterday’s nothingburger of a hearing, John Boehner asks President Obama to release a State Department email.

I think the best take on this was from Dana Milbank of all people — “They summoned a whistleblower to Capitol Hill, but instead they got a virtuoso storyteller.” A riveting account of a horrific incident which really didn’t tell us stuff we didn’t know before or do what Republicans wanted, which was to suggest bad acts or dereliction on the part of President Obama or Hillary Clinton. About all you could use Hicks’s testimony for is actual oversight aimed at improving security policy going forward.
