Hillary Clinton said that if the Republicans were to embark on their investigation of Planned Parenthood it would be a "witch hunt" just like the the Benghazi Select Committee.
"After my experience yesterday I am just amazed that they are talking about setting up another special investigative committee, this time to investigate Planned Parenthood," Clinton said while speaking at the Democratic National Committee's Women's Leadership forum in Washington, D.C. on Friday morning. "And I think we all know by now that's just code for a partisan witch hunt — haven't we seen enough of that?"
The former secretary of state sat in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi for 11 hours on Thursday, as she testified about her knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on Americans in Libya. The Democratic front-runner has repeatedly stated that the GOP-led investigation is an attempt to sabotage her presidential campaign.
Clinton is also a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood, the federally-funded health organization that is currently under scrutiny by Republicans for its abortion practices.
"There are so many people with a very different vision for our country," Clinton warned the Democratic audience. "And they will say do and spend whatever it takes to expand their out of touch, out of date agenda. For people who say they hate big government, Republicans sure spend a lot of time trying to restrict women's reproductive health and reproductive rights!"
