After grilling former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for 11 hours Thursday during her testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Chairman Trey Gowdy says he still can't identify "what she's taken responsibility for."
The Republican South Carolina congressman told Fox News Friday evening that Clinton made it clear during Thursday's testimony that she was not responsible for unfulfilled requests for additional security at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, ahead of the attack that left four Americans dead on Sept. 11, 2012.
"We heard for several hours yesterday that it wasn't [Clinton], she was very clear about that, that she takes responsibility, but apparently not for the request for more security," Gowdy told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.
He added, "I'm not going to give you a name because it wouldn't be fair to that person but I can tell you that if her position is, despite what the previous [Accountability Review Board] said about taking personal responsibility and personally review it, if her position is that she didn't do it, then we need to find out what level that decision was made so we can make sure it never happens again."
Gowdy also weighed in on emails introduced by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, during Thursday's hearing that were sent by Clinton to her daughter and the Egyptian prime minister hours after the Benghazi attack occurred. In the emails, Clinton identified the incident as a "planned attack" by an "al Qaeda-like group" and indicated that she knew it "had nothing to do with the [anti-Islam] film" that she and President Obama publicly blamed it on afterwards.Read more on WashingtonExaminer.com
