A Hillary Clinton supporter introducing the Democratic candidate to a small gathering in Iowa Tuesday afternoon may land the frontrunner in hot water for saying "Who cares?" when speaking about the Benghazi terrorist attack and Clinton’s email scandal.
"Set aside all that hoo-ha about emails and this, and about Benghazi—Who cares?" Nathan Ryker of Muscatine, Iowa said in front of a nodding Clinton. "I want to know what tomorrow is about, not what yesterday’s about."
The Clinton campaign has taken advantage of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R., Calif.) gaffe boasting of the political ramifications of the Special Committee on Benghazi. Feeling vindicated, the campaign is hoping to frame the committee as part of a "vast right-wing conspiracy" with a new ad.
Hillary Clinton accused Republicans of politicizing the incident just one day prior.
"Look at the situation they chose to exploit to go after me for political reasons, the death of four Americans in Benghazi. I knew [Ambassador Christopher Stevens]. I identified him. I asked him to go there. I asked the president to nominate him," Clinton said in New Hampshire. "This committee was set up, as they have admitted, for the purpose of making a partisan political issue out of the deaths of four Americans."
The FBI is currently investigating the potential improper handling of classified information on Clinton’s private server. Despite promising under penalty of perjury she turned over all relevant work emails, the State Department received over 900 Clinton emails regarding Libya and Benghazi not included in the original record.
Clinton is scheduled to testify in front of the Benghazi Committee on Oct. 22.
