SECY. CLINTON EXPLODES ON SEN. RON JOHNSON (R-WI)
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is a gangster and I love her for it.
If you missed her Senate testimony on Wednesday about the Sept. 11 incident in Benghazi, then you missed some good political moments. Don’t worry, we have them right here!
Clinton was on Capitol Hill to give testimony about who knew what when about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. The fallen included U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) tried to get tough with Hillary about the timeline of events. That set Madame Secretary off. She loudly let him know that they were trying to drum up outrage over statements that were made about the deaths in a breaking news situation.
Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) in his usual high-browed style tried to reprimand Clinton about what she knew and when … basically saying her answers weren’t satisfactory. But, the secretary had an amazing comeback. She reminded McCain how the Senate never wanted to fund anything around Libya, saying that the country was already rich enough and didn’t need Congressional funds. Welp!
Among the items that Sec. Clinton says are being withheld by Congress — bilateral security assistance and support for anti-terrorism assistance in the House. This could have helped prevent the attack. She said “we gotta get our act together between the [Obama] Administration and the Congress.”
I couldn’t agree more.
CLINTON AND MCCAIN GO BACK AND FORTH ABOUT BENGHAZI
