Sens. McCain, Lieberman and Graham on Susan Rice for Sec. of State
Tonight at 9pm, “Piers Morgan Tonight” navigates to the nation’s capital, as the host sits down with a trio of Senators for an hour-long exchange of insight and opinion.
Joined by John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham, Piers Morgan turns the topic to Susan Rice and Benghazi, referencing the September 11th attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations who initially supplied false information to the public and the press as part of the White House’s response.
Extremely outspoken in his criticism of Rice, and the Obama administration in general following the violence, McCain offered his feelings on Rice’s political future, as the 48-year-old has been regularly mentioned as a potential replacement for current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
“I don’t know if she’s even nominated or not. She deserves the process that every nominee goes through,” says the Republican from Arizona. “But the fact is, she not only gave wrong information, but she gave the party line, that … Al Qaeda is decimated – Al Qaeda is not decimated. That our embassies and consulates are secure – they are not secure. So … we’re all responsible for what we say. So we’ll go through the process if she’s nominated and we’ll see.”
Later Morgan asks Sen. Graham to speak on Rice as the potential Secretary of State.
“Personally, I don’t believe she would serve the country well in that capacity,” the Republican from South Carolina says flatly.
