ABC’s Gibson Defends Clinton, Declares There’s Nothing to Benghazi or Her E-Mails

Demonstrating there’s no space between liberal politicians and major media figures – once they feel free in retirement to express their true views which guided their news judgments during their careers – long-time ABC News correspondent and anchor Charlie Gibson on Wednesday afternoon dismissed the relevance of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails or Benghazi: “I don’t think there’s anything to Benghazi and I don’t think there’s anything to the e-mails.”

Talking with ex-Clinton family operative George Stephanopoulos during the 5 PM EST hour of Good Morning America: 40 for 40, the forty hour online marathon leading to GMA’s 40th anniversary on Thursday morning, Gibson insisted:

I don’t think there’s anything to Benghazi and I don’t think there’s anything to the e-mails. And I agree with Bernie Sanders: I’m sick of hearing about them...Politically, I think he was right. I don’t think there’s anything to this. And I think, as some people said the Benghazi, as McCarthy said, the investigation was designed to hurt her politically.
