There’s new reaction on Benghazi from lawmakers today after newly released White House emails show top aides worked to prep then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice for the Sunday talk shows.

Rice delivered the now-discredited narrative that blamed the deadly attack on an anti-Islamic film.

Former White House senior adviser Ben Rhodes wrote in one email that the goal for Rice’s appearances would be to "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”

Earlier on America’s Newsroom, Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) called the documents “the most compelling piece of evidence that the White House was pretty occupied with spinning their policy more so than they were telling the American people the truth.”

Today on Outnumbered, Katie Pavlich pointed out the link between Ben Rhodes and his brother, David, who is the president of CBS. Former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson recently told Bill O’Reilly that she was called a “troublemaker” for pursuing the Benghazi story.

“Now maybe we know why they didn’t want her reporting on that topic,” Pavlich said.
