Sen. Ron Johnson: “stunned” at the Secretary Clinton’s response to release of sole suspect detained in Benghazi attacks

Tonight on OutFront, CNN’s Erin Burnett spoke exclusively with Ron Johnson, a tea party backed Wisconsin Republican serving his first term, about his questioning of Secretary Hillary Clinton at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s hearing on the September terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.  Johnson persistently questioned Clinton on Wednesday morning about what he described as Rice “purposely misleading” the American people.  Johnson said he was “surprised by Secretary Clinton’s reaction to that because it was a pretty simple question.” 

Johnson also told Burnett he was “stunned” at the Secretary’s response to the release of the sole suspect detained in the Benghazi attacks,” you know, they said they were going to, you know, take these guys and they’re going to, you know, punish the people, but they don’t be — you know, they don’t appear to really be pursuing that very aggressively.”
