Clinton: ‘No Reason’ to Continue Investigating Benghazi

BY:

In spite of recent key developments in the Benghazi investigation, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday there's "no reason" to continue making inquiries into the 2012 terrorist attack.

"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 said. "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 the Congress."

A select committee has been formed in Congress with seven Republicans and five Democrats, led by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) to try to get to the bottom of the assault and any White House cover-up to shield President Obama and Clinton herself, who was Secretary of State when the attack happened.

White House officials and liberal press members have consistently tried to ignore or disparage Republican efforts to investigate Benghazi for over a year-and-a-half.

Full exchange:

ROBIN ROBERTS: On Benghazi, the new investigation. Are you satisfied with the answers and are you content with what you know — what happened?

HILLARY CLINTON: Absolutely. I mean, 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. 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 the Congress.
