Wednesday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” guest panelist Steve Rattner, a former New York Times reporter who believes the biggest scandal of the three currently facing the White House is Benghazi, asked David Axelrod what he believes the Administration should do to try and get out from under the scandal. Axelrod said, “I think they would benefit from getting all these emails out in public.”
The emails Axelrod, an Obama confidante who now works for MSNBC, is referencing are those surrounding the shaping of the CIA talking points that occurred between that agency, the State Department, and the White House prior to Susan Rice’s now-infamous round-robin of five Sunday talk shows.
The talking points are not only controversial because they were completely wrong, but also because the White House is leaning on them to excuse their misleading of the American people for almost two weeks during which they insisted the September 11 attack on our Libya consulate had nothing to do with terrorism.
Tuesday, both CNN and ABC News called for the release of the emails.
New Media has been demanding to see these emails since last September.
