There’s a Snapchat Filter for the Benghazi Hearing Because #ThisTown

“This message will disappear,” the filter says, next to a warning sign, “just like Hillary Clinton’s emails.”

The hot­test House hear­ing in Wash­ing­ton now has a Snapchat fil­ter.

Hil­lary Clin­ton’s ap­pear­ance be­fore the House Se­lect Com­mit­tee on Benghazi Thursday has cap­tiv­ated the cap­it­al. The com­mit­tee is in­vest­ig­at­ing the former sec­ret­ary of State’s role in the 2012 at­tacks on the U.S. con­su­late in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Amer­ic­ans. And while Re­pub­lic­ans have denied ac­cus­a­tions that they’ve turned the tax­pay­er-fun­ded com­mit­tee in­to a polit­ic­al witch hunt, Ju­di­cial Watch—a con­ser­vat­ive found­a­tion that “pro­motes trans­par­ency, ac­count­ab­il­ity and in­teg­rity in gov­ern­ment, polit­ics and the law”—has sponsored a spe­cial Snapchat fil­ter for the oc­ca­sion.

“This mes­sage will dis­ap­pear,” the fil­ter says, next to a warn­ing sign, “just like Hil­lary Clin­ton’s emails.”

Un­less, of course, you screen­shot them.
