Today's congressional hearing with Hillary Clinton was supposed to focus on what happened on the night of the deadly attack on the American presence in Benghazi, Libya, but it also had another focus: the legitimacy of the Benghazi Select Committee itself.
In committee chairman Trey Gowdy's opening statement, he defended the need for the committee, saying investigations that had come before it had not been as thorough as this one. (Video via U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi)
"I understand some people — frankly in both parties — have suggested this investigation is about you. Let me assure you it is not. ... This work is about something much more important than any single person," Gowdy said.
