Talk about a conspiracy. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican, has said that Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was wrong to say what he did about the special committee on Benghazi — and that Mr. Chaffetz intends on correcting it by challenging Mr. McCarthy for the speakership.

The House GOP seems to believe this is the only way it can stuff the Cheshire cat back into the bag after Mr. McCarthy admitted to Sean Hannity that the committee is political and its true target is Hillary Rodham Clinton’s run for the presidency.

Speaking of the Cheshire cat, Mr. Chaffetz fits that grin perfectly.
