Once upon a time seven years ago, House Republicans demanded a select committee to investigate the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, insisting that either President Barack Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had done something to cause that attack or had at least failed to respond properly to protect Americans in the embassy. Congress voted for that committee to be formed and the members appointed included seven Republicans – Trey Gowdy (SC), Susan Brooks (IN), Jim Jordan (OH), Mike Pompeo (KS), Martha Roby (AL), Peter Roskam (IL), and Lynn Westmoreland (GA) – and five Democrats – Elijah Cummings (DA), Adam Smith (WA), Adam Schiff (CA), Linda Sanchez (CA), and Tammy Duckworth (IL).

After months of investigation, the Republican-led committee determined that there was no wrongdoing on the part of the American government that caused the attack on the embassy and nothing that could have been done to stop it. Republicans looked rather foolish for their endless ranting about Benghazi, especially when a group of members who were in the majority part of the Republican Party made the determination.

Today, there is actual evidence of an attack on an American government building and that then-President Trump may have acted to cause that attack to happen and, at the very least, failed to protect Americans from the attack. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has called for an investigative committee into the attack, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy refuses to allow any Republican to serve on that committee and is threatening to remove committee positions from any GOP representative who accepts an offer to sit on it.

Suddenly, Republicans are concerned that an investigation may find evidence that looks bad for them, so all of their bloviating during the Benghazi investigation about their responsibility to protect Americans has gone out the door.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) is one of only a handful of Republicans who has supported the Democrats’ push for an investigation. He celebrated the appointment of Rep. Liz Cheney, who has already been removed from her committee assignments because she dared to disagree with Trump.

Twitter was in full agreement with Rep. Kinzinger. Read some of their comments below:
