Christie: Hillary ‘Doesn’t Tell the Truth,’ ‘Refuses to Be Held Accountable’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” while discussing her testimony to the House Select Benghazi Committee last week, Republican presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “doesn’t tell the truth” and she “refuses to be held accountable.”

Christie said, “I think they were. the fact is we should be talking about what really matters in that this sense, Secretary Clinton says that she is not responsible for what happened there. She says other security professionals were responsible yet she didn’t fire anybody. And I think what the American people dislike the most about Hillary Clinton that she refuses to be held accountable. Mistakes happen. Bad things happen. You need to be held accountable stand up to do that. She has no accountability. No transparency to what is going on. I don’t think they did effective job. Here is the thing. Come next September when I’m on the stage with her in debates she’ll have federal prosecutor asking these questions.”

Host John Dickerson said, “When he say she wasn’t on top of it, her security staff, people said that about with you the George Washington bridge. He should have known this is happening it shows that he wasn’t on top of things.”

Christie  said, “Bad things will happen sometimes, You have to be accountable. Within 24 hours when that news came to New Jersey I fired the people who were responsible. What happened to Hillary Clinton, why did those folks not fired? Because she doesn’t want to tell the truth. That is the biggest problem with Hillary Clinton. is that she doesn’t — she doesn’t tell the truth and she doesn’t want to be held accountable. That’s not the kind of person we need in White House. Somebody who is willing to be accountable for what goes on in this country, What goes on on Capitol Hill.”
