One of Jay Carney’s new favorite things is claiming that Mitt Romney politicized Benghazi during the 2012 presidential campaign to such a degree that it has led to ongoing investigations of one of the so-called “phony scandals.”

Today, Carney doubled and tripled down after being questioned about the formation of a select House committee to investigate Benghazi that will be headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy:

What would anything said by the Romney campaign the night of 9/11/12 have to do with why members of the Obama administration were still blaming “the video” days later?

Oh, Carney’s done that too!

As for Rep. Gowdy’s upcoming investigation, Carney said the White House is always happy to cooperate with “legitimate” oversight.

As usual, we’re pretty sure who Carney thinks will decide what’s “legitimate” and what isn’t.
