Hillary Clinton Does Not Believe More Benghazi Hearings Are Necessary

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the GOP’s call for more hearings and answers regarding the 2012 attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi today during a live interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, sponsored by Philanthropy New York. Asked by Roberts if she is “satisfied” with the answers previous hearing uncovered and “content” that she knows what happened on September 11, 2012, Clinton answered, “Absolutely.”

“Of course, there are a lot of reasons why, despite all of the hearings, all of the information that’s been provided, some choose not to be satisfied and choose to continue to move forward.” Clinton elaborated, “That’s their choice, and I do not believe there is any reason for it to continue in this way, but they get to call the shots in Congress.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) previously announced plans to form a select committee to further investigate the Benghazi attack and its aftermath. The committee will be chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and will likely contain seven Republicans and five Democrats.
