Newest Hillary Email Dump Reveals Discussion on ‘What Difference Does It Make’

In the newest Hillary Clinton email dump, it turns out there’s a thread featuring Clinton and others discussing her infamous “what difference does it make” moment at the 2013 Benghazi hearing.

You may recall that during the hearing, after being grilled by a Republican senator, Clinton went off and said, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Well, in one of the emails released tonight, Mark Penn sent an email to Clinton saying, “I don’t think the emotion in the hearing works to your advantage… looks more like they rattled you on something no one outside the crazy right blamed you for anyway.”

Below you can see how the rest of the chain unfolded, with Clinton’s response at the top:
