With a disgusting and callous disregard for four Americans who were murdered by terrorists in an incident that the Obama regime tried to cover up, CNN spit on the graves of the victims of Benghazi.
Not that anyone should expect anything else from the wretched and dishonest propaganda network, but trivializing the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans is pretty low even for CNN.
During a segment that was set up put lipstick on the pig of Nancy Pelosi’s unconstitutional impeachment inquiry, hosts John Avlon and Poppy Harlow aired footage while lying about the context.
The segment was an attack on former congressman Trey Gowdy who has agreed to serve as President Trump’s legal counsel during the sham hearings that are soon coming to Capitol Hill.
CNN aired the clip of an angry Gowdy demanding that an Obama lackey provide documents to the House panel that was investigating the Benghazi disaster and the administration’s reluctance to cooperate.
While lecturing the audience about Gowdy’s probe of Benghazi, the smug hosts said:
“I would love for Trey Gowdy to be consistent on this,” Avlon answered. “I’d love to see any philosophical consistency in Congress rather than pure situational ethics … because everyone is sort of knee-deep in hypocrisy on this stuff.”
“The problem is it is the Constitution at stake. This is not a Benghazi-type hearing, this is really serious stuff.”
Memo to CNN – NOBODY is going to DIE during the impeachment farce!

Not only was it a terrible insult to the four Americans who came home from Benghazi in body bags thanks to Hillary and Obama but the clip was from a completely different set of hearings.
Gowdy’s demand was actually made during the investigation of Obama’s vicious hatchetman Eric Holder’s Mexican gun-running operation Fast And Furious.
CNN's creepy, greasy John Avlon says of impeachment: "This isn't Benghazi, this is serious." Who died in impeachment?? https://t.co/LWu05TLfpt

The 2012 Benghazi attacks are suddenly a topic of interest for CNN on Wednesday morning, but only as a tool to criticize Republicans. Smug CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto eagerly showcased a clip of former Rep. Trey Gowdy slamming Democrats for withholding information from the Republican led-committee, equating it to what Trump’s administration is doing now with the impeachment inquiry.
But the clip CNN used was from June 2012, months before the attacks in Benghazi even occurred. The former representative was blasting the Obama administration for stonewalling an investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal.
Regardless, Harlow smirked, asking senior political analyst John Avlon, “So Avlon, when he is asked, ‘Mr. Gowdy, where is the respect for the rule of law?’ What does he say?” (Since Gowdy, now out of office, has joined President Trump’s legal team, the CNN hosts were eager to label this as hypocrisy.)
Avlon crudely dismissed the Benghazi hearings, that were based on the Obama administration’s controversial handling of the terrorist attack on our consulate which killed 4 Americans, as not “serious”
I would love for Trey Gowdy to be consistent on this. I’d love to see philosophical consistency in Congress rather than situational ethics. But you know the problem is he didn’t need to shout it, and be it, we don’t expect it. Because everyone is sort of knee deep in hypocrisy on this stuff. The problem is it is the Constitution at stake. This is not a Benghazi type hearing, this is really serious stuff. ”
How the CNN editors could have allowed for such a “mistake” is mind-boggling (hint: they lie and lie and lie some more) but the disregard for lost lives to score cheap political points is downright disgraceful.
This is CNN and it’s how they roll.
