On Tuesday’s “The Situation Room” on CNN, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) addressed the prospects of a former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run in an interview with host Wolf Blitzer. According to Rubio, much of that comes the lapses that led to the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.
“I think Hillary Clinton is going to struggle to win on multiple fronts,” Rubio said. “First, she’s going to be asked to account for her time as secretary of state. And I don’t think it is the sterling success people think it is. Quite frankly, much of the foreign policy failures we see in place today began when she ran the Department of State. I think she’s going to have to answer for Benghazi. I know people want to push that aside. But here’s a fact – the State Department knew that the risk level for that facility was extremely high. They should have either closed that facility or provided it adequate security. They did not under her watch. She will have to answer for that.”
