Rove's dig at Clinton's health

Karl Rove's suggestion that Hillary Clinton suffers from a brain injury is coming under attack.

Rove, the mastermind behind George W. Bush's two presidential election victories, appeared at a conference last Thursday, where he discussed a 2012 incident that sent the then-secretary of state to the hospital, according to the New York Post's Page Six, the newspaper's well-known gossip column.

"Thirty days in the hospital?" asked Rove, a Fox News Channel contributor, according to the report. "And when she reappears, she's wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what's up with that." FULL STORY.

At 6:30pm ET Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) join Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter, who is back from maternity leave!

Democrats yet to decide on Benghazi panel

Will it be a boycott or a chaperone?

House Democrats remained undecided Friday on whether they would join a select committee created by majority Republicans to investigate the Benghazi terror attack.

The chamber's Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, described a split in her caucus over the matter in remarks to reporters that lambasted Republicans for what she called a "political stunt," "subterfuge" and a "diversionary tactic."

Options under consideration include participating as a minority bloc, which Republicans have proposed; having a lone member take part to register disapproval but maintain a presence, or rejecting the entire process as a partisan witch hunt.

"The question is what are the terms under which Democrats can participate," Pelosi said, citing the need for her side to concur with any committee decision to issue subpoenas. FULL STORY.

At 6:30p ET, two Congressman are in the #Crossfire; Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) join Van Jones and S.E. Cupp to debate.

Benghazi witch-hunt or cover-up?

House Republicans are unlikely to bend to Democratic demands for more equity in the structure of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attack, a GOP source familiar with the matter told CNN.

The House was set to vote on creating the panel later in the day that, at this point, would include seven Republicans and five Democrats.

House Speaker John Boehner called that division fair on Thursday at a briefing with reporters, and said he had spoken with Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi about her party's concerns.

Boehner said of the conversation that he "made clear that this is a serious investigation, that we wanted to work together to get to the truth." FULL STORY.

Is the Benghazi investigation a worthwhile use of taxpayer money?
