Rep. Nunes says Benghazi testimony 'outstanding' help to probe of attack

 

Rep. Devin Nunes told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Tuesday night classified hearings on the Benghazi attack are providing “outstanding” testimony that will help Congress in the investigation of the assault going forward.

Nunes, R-Calif., said on “The Kelly File” the testimony by two CIA contractors before the House Intelligence Committee gave lawmakers a “lot of good leads” in their probe of the attack, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

He said the contractors' account raises questions as to why no one was sent to help the Benghazi compound that night when it was unclear whether the attack had ended.  

“What if they attack had gone on for another 24 hours?” he asked. “Would they have sent help then?”

Nunes said it is unclear why even though the contractors found out about the attack around dusk, they did not arrive to help those at the compound until the next day around 5:00 a.m.

“There is no accountability in the process that I’ve seen so far and nobody knows what the president knew and when he knew it,” he said.
