Last night, Sen. Kelly Ayotte talked to Piers Morgan about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's testimony at the Benghazi hearings earlier today. There "is still so many questions that went unanswered and frankly some unsatisfactory answers," the Republican senator said.
Clinton said "she was clear eyed about the dangers and threats in Eastern Libya but then she said that 'I didn't see any of the security requests,' which were multiple, coming from the consulate," the New Hampshire senator began. "If you are clear eyed about dangers and threats from Eastern Libya, why weren't you asking the questions about 'do we need more security?'"
Starting Point Anchor Soledad O’Brien interviews Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola and Ramona Rizzo, the stars of “Mob Wives,” about the series upcoming third season.
Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien asks Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) if he was implying in an interview that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faked being emotional to avoid his questions during yesterday’s testimony on the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
Johnson says, “Well, I was responding to a question maybe I shouldn't. I agree with Secretary Clinton we need to understand what happened so we can prevent it in the future. But again, we do need to get to the bottom of what actually happened. What is the truth of the matter here? Did the administration mislead us? I absolutely believe they did. That's for the American people to understand.”
