The Bi-Partisan Stench of Washington D.C.

A curious vignette mentioned by Andy McCarthy vis-a-vis the Benghazi hearings.

...Intriguing questions have also been raised by Judicial Watch’s Micah Morrison about the activities of Aegis Defense Services, a military contractor active in Libya that has close ties to the U.S. intelligence community. One of Aegis’s top U.S. executives was Kristi Rogers, the wife of Congressman Mike Rogers (R., Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Rogers’ committee was responsible for investigating the Benghazi Massacre, including the CIA’s still unexplained mission there. As Eli Lake has reported, Rogers gave a pass to CIA officials accused by others of stonewalling his committee, and he vigorously opposed the appointment of a select committee. Recently, Rep. Rogers abruptly announced he would not seek reelection to his safe congressional seat and coveted chairmanship; Mrs. Rogers resigned first from Aegis and then, quite suddenly, from a law firm she’d joined only 13 months earlier – a law firm that had touted the “top secret facility security clearance” Mrs. Rogers had obtained for Aegis, and her creation of a board of directors that included two former senior CIA officials....

There's very good reason that actual Conservatives have zero respect for Republicans.

I won't miss "Lightbulb" Rogers, the ultra-jackass who banned incandescent bulbs.  It would be nice to see him in Club Fed, just for that offense alone.  But if he's also complicit in the Benghazi slaughter, I think he should be sent--alone--to fight ISIS.
