There's no way to walk back a comment that confirms what everyone already knew

It is funny to see Republicans try to walk back Kevin McCarthy's admission that the primary purpose of the House Committee on Benghazi was to do political damage to Hillary Clinton. McCarthy was only saying what everyone already knew. As Booman put it: "To say that this was the worst-kept secret in Washington DC would be to imply that it was a secret at all."

I wonder what the families of Christopher Stevens or Sean Smith (the two U.S. Diplomats who were killed in the 2012 attack that the committee is pretending to investigate) think about members of Congress using their loved ones to score political points.
