Clash over Clinton's comments after Benghazi
WASHINGTON, D. C. - At the House Benghazi hearing, there's a tense back-and-forth between GOP Rep. Jim Jordan and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton over her public comments right after the 2012 attacks.
Jordan says Clinton emailed her family that night of the attacks saying that al-Qaida was responsible - and not an anti-Muslim video that inspired protests across the Mideast.
Jordan is citing a Clinton statement that some people were using the video to justify the attacks, and he says Clinton misled the American people about the true nature of the incident.
The Ohio lawmaker accuses Clinton and her aides of "playing politics" because they were concerned that a terrorist attack in Libya that September could jeopardize President Barack Obama's re-election bid a short while later in November.
Jordan is telling Clinton: "You can live with a protest about a video, but not a terrorist attack."
Clinton says she resents Jordan's "insinuations." She says - "I'm sorry it doesn't fit your narrative. I can only tell you the facts."
