Reps. Chaffetz, Lynch Clash Over Intimidation Of Benghazi Witnesses - Fo...
MichaelSavage4Prez - Chaffetz said that witnesses have "absolutely" been threatened and intimidated from coming forward. They're "scared to the death" of what the State Department is doing, he asserted. Lynch jumped in to argue that Chaffetz's assertions were "completely false" — that the attorneys have not asked for the information yet and, in fact, the State Department would cooperate.
Not surprisingly, Chaffetz was insistent about his story, further adding that Democrats are more than welcome to participate in the process. But they simply haven't. The congressmen refuted nearly every point they made to each other, neither agreeing on much about where the situation stands.
Chris Wallace later jumped in to pose the question about how much then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew about the security requests (which she said she never saw). Every cable that goes to the department, he told Chaffetz, has Clinton's name on it — so that's not necessarily a way to argue that Clinton should have seen that cable. Chaffetz by asking for the release of the unclassified document.
Clinton, he argued, "claims" to take full responsibility for what happened, but simultaneously "pleads ignorance."
