Hillary’s Email Revelations Followed Request from Benghazi Select Committee

Contrary to claims made a State Department spokeswoman, Hillary Clinton's emails were not requested as part of some records-keeping process.

And he at least attempted to explain why he refuses to adopt the phrase "Islamic extremist."
