'Move on' from Benghazi? Republicans say it's unlikely

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton says it's time to "move on" after a congressional report on the deadly 2012 Benghazi attacks accused the Obama administration of lethal mistakes, but produced no evidence of wrongdoing by the former secretary of state.

Not likely, especially in an election year with presidential rival Donald Trump lashing out.

An 800-page report by a special House committee makes no direct accusations against Clinton, who was secretary of state during the attacks that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Still, Republicans point to Benghazi as a major failure by the administration and by Clinton during her tenure leading the State Department. The issue is likely to shadow Clinton as she continues her bid for president.

GOP Rep. Ed Royce of California said no one has been accountable.
