Joe Manchin Says Benghazi Investigation Was a ‘Witch Hunt’

The West Virginia Democrat defended Hillary Clinton from the investigation.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) called the Benghazi investigation a “witch hunt” in an appearance on CNN on Wednesday.

Asked by CNN host Chris Cuomo if he considered the Russia investigation a witch hunt, Manchin responded, “This is not a witch hunt.”

“I’ve seen witch hunts. I saw the Benghazi witch hunt,” he continued.

Manchin has been considered one of the more conservative members of the Democratic caucus, but he stuck to the left-wing ideological talking points to attack the Trump administration and defend Hillary Clinton.
