Sen. Johnson responds to his comments Clinton used an emotional “trump card”

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.”

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