After aggressively questioning Hillary Rodham Clinton for more than 8 hours on Thursday and generating no new information, the Select Committee on Benghazi has decided to waterboard the former First Lady in the next round.

“We keep getting the same answers to the same questions,” said Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, the committee chairman. “We have to change something up.”

After seven previous investigations and millions of dollars, the Republican-led committee is now getting pushback from members of its own party who claim that not only are the hearings an ongoing embarrassment but are counter-productive by making Mrs. Clinton look more presidential.

Representative Gowdy was undeterred, however, and responded, “How presidential does someone look while drowning?”
