Less than a week before former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testifies before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., piled on Friday to a string of remarks suggesting the committee has politically targeted Clinton, following initial testimony earlier in the day with top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. “When you have the No. 2 person in the Republican party who comes forward, the person who makes plans with the speaker and the person who will continue to be — who was one step away from becoming the speaker, to tell you that this is all about a taxpayer funded political effort to derail the campaign of Hillary Clinton, ladies and gentleman that is a problem,” Cummings said. Clinton will testify before the committee on Thursday at 10 a.m.
