‘The Benghazi guy?’ Ex-Hillary staffer needs a minute when she finds out who’s taking over Russian probe

Democrats wasted no time reacting to the announcement that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes would be stepping aside in the Russia investigation, and for one former Hillary Clinton hack, his choice of replacement did not bode well.

Zerlina Maxwell,  who served as the director of progressive media for Clinton’s presidential campaign, was not confident that Rep. Trey Gowdy would conduct a “completely transparent” investigation.

Nunes, in his announcement Thursday to remove himself from the probe of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said Gowdy along with Rep.Tom Rooney would step in to assist Rep. Mike Conaway in taking over the investigation. Conservatives were thrilled with the decision that “pitbull” Gowdy would be stepping in.

Liberals on the other hand…

“The Benghazi guy?” Maxwell responded on MSNBC Thursday when guest Kristin Tate said she was “happy to hear” about Gowdy.

“The Benghazi guy is taking over, so that’s not necessarily something that Democrats will appreciate that much,” Maxwell said, indicating her doubt over the South Carolina Republican’s ability to conduct a bipartisan investigation.

“I think it’s important that [Nunes] is stepping aside because we need a bipartisan, completely transparent investigation into what happened because it’s not really a partisan issue,” she added. “The fact that a foreign government interfered in our election should matter to Republicans and Democrats.”
