That's what Steve Benen (MSNBC/MaddowBlog) concludes about the outcome of the Comey hearing favoring Clinton and Democrats.
The House Republicans got upset with FBI Director James Comey for not charging Hillary Clinton with criminal acts. They hauled him before the House Oversight committee and he did not budge all. He defended his decision (and that of the dozens of FBI investigators). So what happened is the hapless Republicans managed to deep six their own narrative and converted the players from GOP vs. Clinton to GOP vs. Comey. Just as Clinton won in the 11-hour Benghazi hearing Comey won, for her, in this piece of staged idiocy that backfired on the GOP.
