Why wait until Benghazi whistleblowers Mark Thompson, Gregory Hicks and Eric Nordstrom testify before the House Oversight Committee? Rep. Elijah Cummings was ready to call b.s. before they even had a chance to speak on Wednesday.

Oh, come on. Breathing while conservative qualifies you for that.

Video here:

Cummings started off his statement with a shoutout … to “public employees.”

He insisted he was glad to have the whistleblowers at the hearing and called them “important.”


And whistleblower protection? Cummings is on it!


But wait … there’s more.


Cummings went after Fox News, all sneaky-like, natch.

Politicizer, heal thyself.

And a boom-worthy rebuttal from Rep. Darrell Issa:

Heckuva job, Cummings!



What difference does it make? Eric Nordstrom fights back tears during opening Benghazi statement: ‘It matters’

Here we go: Backlash against Benghazi whistleblowers is underway
