[McCarthy has] found himself under a harsh glare for comments he made suggesting that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s poll numbers were dropping in part because of a Republican-led inquiry by the Select Committee on Benghazi…. "Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable," [McCarthy told Sean Hannity, who is very 'trustable']. "But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen."
Well put, Kevin. Neither I nor Team Clinton could have said it better, and it's appreciated.
The remarks about the Benghazi investigation were not the only subject where Mr. McCarthy generated controversy. He also seemed critical of the man he seeks to replace, Mr. Boehner. "I think John Boehner deserves a B-," Mr. McCarthy said in the interview.
So McCarthy angered establishment Republicans by not giving Boehner an A, and he antagonized the "conservatives" by not giving him an F. In brief, McCarthy managed to annoy his entire caucus before being sworn in. This should be quite an adventure.
