George Will On Benghazi: ‘Rather Less Significant’ Than Watergate

On Fox News Sunday, George Will was asked about the significance of the Benghazi memo. Specifically, host Wallace asked about remarks by Charles Krauthammer comparing the discovery of the Rhodes email to discovery of the Nixon tapes.

WALLACE: How signficant is it?

WILL: Rather less than the Watergate tapes which showed a President at the heart of crime wave suborning perjury and raising hush money and all the rest. This is a memo pushing a narrative that we now know to be false that he should have known to be false at the time, that he probably did know to be false and is therefore meretricious.

Will also agreed with Rep. Adam Schiff that it would be a smart move on the part of Democrats to boycott any further investigation into the Benghazi incident, as it would make the Republicans look “obviously” as if they were just participating in partisan presidential election politics.

As if boycotting isn’t the EXACT same thing.
