HIGHLIGHTS: Bret Baier, Greta Van Susteren Sit Down With Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton sat down with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren this evening, where the Fox News hosts asked the former secretary of state tough questions about Benghazi, the Bergdahl swap, Iraq and more.
Baier asked Clinton if she stands by her statement that she didn’t know of any reports that contradicted Ambassador Susan Rice’s talking points on TV shows following the Benghazi attack.
“I do, Bret,” she said. “This was the fog of war.” Clinton said that her assessment of the situation “careened” from whether a YouTube video had something to do with the attack or nothing to do with it.
“Do you know where the president was through the attack?” Baier asked.

In his follow up, Baier asked Clinton exactly what she was taking responsibility for after the Benghazi attack.
Clinton responded, “I took responsibility for being at the head of the State Department at that time. Now that doesn’t mean that I made every decision because I obviously did not. But it does mean that I feel very deeply and very personally about the losses that we incurred.”
Watch the exchange:
Then, Van Susteren asked Clinton about the controversial Bergdahl swap and her remarks that the five freed Gitmo detainees are not a threat to the United States.
“As long as they’re in Qatar, they’re not a threat to the United States,” Clinton said.
“Well, bin Laden was never in the United States,” Van Susteren countered.
Lastly, Van Susteren asked Clinton about the IRS scandal.
“I think anytime the IRS is involved, for many people it’s a real scandal,” Clinton said, adding that there wasn’t a lot of evidence that it was deliberate.
Van Susteren pushed back, "I would say this is real to many Americans.”
