Chris Wallace is very disappointed that House Democrats are not treating Benghazi like it’s Watergate.
During a break in Hillary Clinton's testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee today, Chris Wallace visited Fox News to offer his thoughts.
WALLACE: The other thing that has fascinated me, I have to say is the Democrats. And, you know, sometimes these congressional hearings really are bipartisan. I was thinking back most famously to perhaps the most famous congressional hearing and that was the Watergate - Senate Watergate hearings in the 1970s, when you saw Republicans asking tough questions of the Nixon administration just as much as the Democrats were. And, in fact, it was a member of the Republican staff who elicited the information that Nixon had a secret taping system.
Well, in this particular case, the Democrats seem only interested in trying to politically rehabilitate Hillary Clinton, to attack the committee, to attack the Republicans and I’m kind of surprised and a little shocked that they’re not asking a single question - honest question about what happened in Libya.
Maybe that’s because this is the eighth investigation, including one following a report from the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee exonerating the Obama administration of wrongdoing in its response to the attack. And maybe that’s because two Republican Congressmembers and one former staffer have destroyed the commitee's credibility as anything but a witch hunt aimed at harming Hillary Clinton.
Of course, host Jon Scott didn’t mention that.

There’s a simple reason for that, Chris: it isn’t . . .
That said, this is done in every sense of the word. If Clinton doesn’t get the nomination, it’s expected of them to dredge their version of this up as a reason, but really? It’s done.
