Questions surrounding the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi should be dismissed by Democrats as a "conservative conspiracy theory," according to a file leaked from the party's House leader.
"While mistakes have been identified, no great scandal or wrongdoing has been uncovered," stated the memo purportedly taken from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's personal computer. It added that Democrats should use the deaths of the four Americans who died in Benghazi to deflect attention from those mistakes, and call for people to move on.
"Benghazi is a tragedy, not a scandal," the memo stated in one section devoted to talking points. "Reports ordered by the Republican-led Congress have repeatedly debunked conspiracy theories of criminal negligence or cover-ups. We must learn from what happened and do better, but those still calling for a witch hunt years later, despite the evidence, have clear self-serving political motivations."
