Giuliani suggests Libya cover-up by Pres. Obama

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani tells CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that there was a cover-up by President Obama and the administration regarding Libya consulate attack.

Giuliani says, “The cover-up of Benghazi, I mean, is startling.”

O’Brien says, “So the White House now is basically saying the State Department dropped the ball… –“

“Who put Susan Rice on?,” Giuliani asks. “The State Department or the political people? It was a political appearance on CNN. So what they’re really trying to do is they’re trying to run out the clock. They’re going to have this investigation. Investigation will be after the debate, after the election is over. So what they’re trying to do is cover-up this scandal as much as possible.”

O’Brien asks, “Calling something a cover-up kind of takes it a further step, don’t you think?”

Giuliani states, “No, it doesn’t.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
