As Twitchy reported, Hillary Clinton managed to get herself caught in yet another lie. After claiming she “never had a subpoena” from the House Benghazi Committee, the committee released that subpoena she never got:
Unless, of course, you ask MSNBC. They’ve got a different take on all this:
“Republican accuses.” That’s the headline they’re going with.

The partisan battle over Hillary Clinton’s private emails reignited Wednesday after the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi essentially accused the former secretary of state of lying about her private account – a claim the Democratic presidential candidate’s allies dismiss as wrong and a politically-motivated “stunt.”
Questions about the private email server Clinton used exclusively as secretary of State have been dogging her for months, and she hoped to put them to rest in a CNN interview Tuesday. “I’ve never had a subpoena,” Clinton said when asked about whether it was right to delete emails while facing a subpoena. “Let’s take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation.”
“Obviously everyone – including Secretary Clinton – knows Chairman Gowdy issued a subpoena back in March because he also issued a press release about it at the time,” [Rep. Elijah] Cummings said, pointing to numerous press reports press reports at the time.
Oh, Elijah Cummings said “obviously” Hillary didn’t lie? Despite the damning evidence to the contrary? Guess that’s good enough for MSNBC!
Pretty neat trick by MSNBC to make it look like Republicans are the ones spreading falsehoods, no?
