This Just In: Secret Video At MSNBC Production Meetings Released

No, it’s not about Benghazi.
Sorry, it’s not about the IRS deciding who gets audited depending upon their political persuasions or their religious beliefs.
What is going on inside of MSNBC is the news that Barack Obama’s Justice Department, for some inexplicable reason, decided in 2012 that not only was the President’s campaign staff concerned about what the media was reporting, but that they opted to secretly wiretap the offices of the Associated Press. Sources close to MSNBC came out of their planning session for how the little-watched network would cover the story.
Erika of course has the full story on the front page, but this leads to a bigger question.
Hugh Hewitt has long called for a select committee on Benghazi, because of the inter-jurisdictional problems of five committees involved that might step on each other. You’d have to think that’s almost a certainty now, wouldn’t you? With Benghazi, the IRS scandal, and WiretAP now busting out all over, there’s nobody in Washington busier than Darrell Issa in the House Governmental Affairs and Oversight Committee. His plate is certainly going to be full. Benghazi deserves its own investigatory committee.
We’ll soon see if the other scandals rise to that level.
