...today House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa decided that today would be a good day to feed the GOP base a brand new #Benghazi subpoena:
But there's also another reason, and in many ways a more plausible one: Today we had a pretty good jobs report. And on days like this, if you're in the GOP leadership, you don't want your base talking about #Jobs, #Jobs, #Jobs. You want them talking about #Benghazi, #Benghazi, #Benghazi.
8:29 AM PT: Ah, in all seriousness, here's what might be the real driver of Issa's move: House Republican leadership is about to announce a House Select Committee to investigate Benghazi according to multiple reporters (Sam Stein, Chuck Todd, and Dana Bash.) This will move the focus of the Benghazi investigation away from Issa's committee, which he can't be happy with. So the Kerry move could have been his attempt to hold the spotlight.12:01 PM PT:
