Monday in Connecticut at a campaign rally, former President Bill Clinton, the husband of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s said his wife ate the Republicans’ “lunch” on Benghazi.
Clinton said “They had seven committees look into that Benghazi thing. The first six were honest committees, chaired by Republicans. They came up with the same thing. They said, ‘Look, yeah, there needs to be some changes made, but she’s not responsible.’ No secretary of state has ever been responsible for security stuff. But she did immediately take responsibility for implementing the recommendations. End of story. Well who cares about that. Who cares that that’s the only time in the history of the country any party has ever politicized foreign policy and the loss of life in the service of America in that way? You never hear that in the press. They said breathlessly we know there’s now a special committee which questioned her for 11 hours, and if I can be colloquial I think she ate their lunch because it was obvious that they were so political. They were so political.”
