• Jim Jordan BUSTED Hillary For Lying At Benghazi Hearing

    Rep. Jim Jordan accused former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Thursday of lying to the American public by blaming an anti-Muslim video for the Benghazi attack, when emails to her family reveal she knew immediately it was a terrorist attack by an “al Qaeda-like group.”

    “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film,” Jordan read out from Clinton’s email. “It was a planned attack. Not a protest. Let me read that one more time. We know, not we think, not it might be, we know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with a film. It was a planned attack. Not a protest. State Department experts knew the truth. You knew the truth, but that’s not what the American people got. Again, the American people want to know why. Why didn’t you tell the American people exactly what you told the Egyptian prime minister?”

    Republicans contend that a terrorist attack of such magnitude would undermine the Obama administration, which repeatedly touted having al-Qaeda “on the run” at the time, and Obama’s re-election campaign narrative.

    “You tell the American people one thing. You tell your family an entirely different story,” Jordan said.

    “Real quick, calling it an attack is like saying the sky’s blue. Of course it was an attack,” Jordan said. “We want to know the truth. The statement you sent out was a statement on Benghazi and you say vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material on the internet. If that’s not pointing as the motive being a video, I don’t know what is, and that’s certainly how the American people saw it.”

    “Well, congressman, there was a lot of conflicting information that we were trying to make sense of,” Clinton responded. “The situation was very fluid. It was fast-moving.”

    Jordan pressed on, criticizing Clinton for “telling the truth” to her own family and foreign diplomats, but not the American people.

    Chairman Trey Gowdy asked Clinton whether or not she wanted to respond and she plugged her book.

    “I wrote a whole chapter about this in my book, Hard Choices. I’d be glad to send it to you, congressman.”
