Conservative pundit Bill Kristol described House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) comment on the Benghazi investigation “embarrassing” on Thursday.

McCarthy, who is vying to be the next House speaker, earlier this week boasted that the GOP-led House investigation had harmed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The comment was criticized by lawmakers on both side of the aisle and outgoing Speaker John Boehner released a scathing statement piling onto McCarthy on Thursday.
