WaPo Reporter Dan Balz: Benghazi Scandal “Could Actually Be Good” For Hillary Clinton In 2016…

Appearing on Monday's The Daily Rundown on MSNBC, Washington Post reporter Dan Balz touted Democratic spin that the ongoing Benghazi scandal could actually help Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign: "I talked to somebody over the weekend, a Democrat, who said, you know, this could actually be good for Clinton because the degree to which the right is really after her helps her with her left....if she's under attack by the right, the Democrats across the spectrum will be more forgiving of her."

Host and NBC political director Chuck Todd led off the exchange by wondering if the House GOP was just "playing politics" with the issue by announcing a select committee to investigate the 2012 terrorist attack. Balz declared: "I mean, I think the base of the Republican Party is very stirred up and continues to be very stirred up over Benghazi." Todd whined: "And they believe the worst in this conspiracy about the White House. And they believe it to the core."

 

Turning to NBC political reporter Kasie Hunt, Todd derisively asked: "Do any Democrats on Capitol Hill take this Benghazi – take these set of Benghazi hearings seriously, either in the substance or the politics of it?" Hunt replied: "I get the sense that they are pushing this idea that it's just a rehash, that we've been through this."

Todd wrapped up the segment by portraying Republican persistence on Benghazi as merely anti-Obama shorthand: "I think Benghazi no longer is the name of a city in Libya. In many ways, for some Republicans, you throw that and it encompasses everything that they don't like, I think, about this administration."
