Clinton, polls targeted as Republicans revive scandals

Speaker of the House John Boehner answers questions during his weekly news conference on May 8, 2014 in Washington, DCRepublicans are reviving well-worn political scandals as they bid to seize control of Congress in mid-term elections while seeking to check Hillary Clinton’s momentum towards a possible presidential bid in 2016. GOP leaders and strategists have steadily rolled out the plan in recent weeks, including the House voting to recommend the attorney general appoint a special counsel to probe IRS targeting of political groups. But Thursday marked a potential watershed, when the House, pushed by its Speaker John Boehner, voted to create a select committee to investigate the 2012 attack on the US mission in Benghazi. The two scandals consumed Washington for months in 2012 and 2013, and the GOP managed to put the administration, including its high-flying then secretary of state Clinton, on the back foot.
