House Speaker John Boehner can put his plans for a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi on hold. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has gotten to the bottom of the scandal:

It's the Koch brothers' fault.

Yes, the Nevada Democrat's obsession with billionaires Charles and David Koch extends to blaming them for the Republican-controlled House's desire to get to the bottom of why the Obama administration blamed a terrorist attack on an obscure anti-Islam video (to protect President Obama politically, according to emails newly obtained by Judicial Watch in a lawsuit).

Here's Reid's statement on Boehner's announcement Friday:

Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.

Those crafty Koch brothers — is there anything they can't do?
