Chuck Todd has a message for Republicans still harping on Benghazi: it's over, people.
The panel on Tuesday's "Morning Joe" was discussing the new House Select committee formed to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks. The inquiry comes after several others into the attacks, all of which led Todd to suggest that the latest investigation is not necessary and is more of a "partisan" process than anything else.
"I'll hear from Republicans that say, 'But there are unanswered questions!' Well, no, all the questions have been answered," he said. "There's just some people that don't like the answers, that wish the answers were somehow more conspiratorial, I guess."
Todd said that there were a number of issues, like policy or the United States' response to Arab Spring, worth discussing. "But to sit here and investigate talking points seems to be totally missing the larger point here," he added. "It's like investigating who cut down one tree in a forest that's been burned down."
