O'REILLY: So here is my final question to you. Can you and your colleagues in the Senate make them?
RUBIO: Well, number one, that's what we are trying to get to the bottom of in all of this endeavor. The answer is you can put people under oath. And if they are willing to lie under oath they are going to commit perjury.
O'REILLY: Yes but you guys have been the House driving this train.
RUBIO: Well we did -- we did a hearing and Secretary Clinton came before us and answered questions and obviously as more information comes out what she said at that hearing will have to be compared with what the facts are that are being uncovered. And I hope that they match up. And then if they don't obviously there will be consequences for that.
But -- but look, here is the bottom line there are two separate issues to look at in Benghazi. One is, were the talking points manipulated for political purposes. And number two should we even have been there to begin with in Benghazi after a steady stream of intelligence reporting that told the State Department it is a very dangerous environment to have been there. They should have closed it down. And if they were going to keep Benghazi open they should have had adequate security and an adequate plan to rescue those people, they did not.
O'REILLY: All right. Are you confident we're going to get answers to any of these stories? Because right now that stonewall is pretty damn intense in Washington.
RUBIO: Well we've got to -- we've got to keep at it. That's our job.
O'REILLY: All right, Senator. It's my job, too. So you and I, we are simpatico here.
RUBIO: Yes that's right.
