Sen. Lindsey Graham: 'I Will Not Confirm a CIA Director Until Obama Administration Releases Info on Who Changed the CIA's Talking Points on Benghazi'
Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator from South Carolina, has been a vocal critic of the White House’s handling of the Benghazi, Libya terror attack. He joined Bret Baier for an exclusive interview, reacting to the release of the only suspect in custody tied to the attack.
Graham had previously written to the Tunisian government and eventually, the FBI was granted an interview with the suspect. “It didn’t take much effort on my part to get the Tunisians to cooperate, I can only imagine what would’ve happened if the president of the United States had picked up the phone
,” he said.
The senator told Baier he will not confirm John Brennan or anyone else as CIA director until the Obama administration shares information with Congress about who deleted references to Al Qaeda in the CIA’s talking points. “Three weeks before the election,” he said. “I think it was purposely done and I want to know who did it and why before we move forward.”
