As it’s becoming clearer by the day that President Obama, former State Department Head Hillary Clinton and White House spokesman Jay Carney lied to the American people over the cause of the attack on our Benghazi consulate, the Democrats are attempting to discredit the testimony of State Department official Gregory Hicks.

Hicks was the highest ranking official in Libya after the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Unsurprisingly, the black liberal establishment ran to President Obama’s defense. Today Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program  and claimed that Hicks’ comments at the hearing were changed to reflect the views of Republican committee members.

Mediaite discussed the MSNBC segment:

“Are you telling me Mr. Hicks changed his story?” Scarborough pressed.

“That’s exactly right,” Cummings replied.

“I don’t blame him,” Cummings added. “I blame the Republicans on our committee trying to put words in his mouth.

In one media appearance, Cummings was attempting to discredit both Republican investigators and whistleblower Hicks. Shameless!!
