Boehner: Benghazi Investigation Has Nothing To Do With Hillary Clinton's Presidential Aspirations

Although Republicans are still continuing to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Sunday that it has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton's potential 2016 presidential bid.

In an interview with Fox News, Boehner stated, “The idea here is to get the American people the facts about what happened. Why wasn’t the security for our embassy in Libya given to our ambassador after repeated requests the night of the event. Why didn't we attempt to rescue the people that were there? Why were the people there told not to get involved? And then, as importantly, when did the president know this and why for some two weeks did he describe it differently than what it really was?”

Democrats however, see this as Republicans trying to score political points by continuing to focus on the Benghazi attacks, which took the lives of four U.S. citizens including Ambassador Chris Stevens. At the time of the attack, Clinton was serving as secretary of State. Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) also believes there are many unanswered questions. Boehner stated that Clinton, “was never interviewed by the Accountability Review Board shortly after the event." Whether or not Clinton will be called to testify is up to Representative Gowdy who is chairman of the Benghazi committee.
