These 3 Emails Show What Hillary Was Really Saying About Benghazi
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) highlighted emails that Hillary Clinton sent in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack in which she labeled it a "planned attack" by an "al Qaeda-like group."
At the House Benghazi Committee's hearing Thursday, Jordan highlighted the messages as an indication that Clinton knew the attack was not related to a protest over an anti-Islam video.
Here's what the then-secretary of state wrote in an email to her daughter on the night of the attack: "two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al-Qaeda like group."
In another email on the day after the attack, Clinton told the Egyptian prime minister that "we know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest."
Clinton responded to Jordan by saying that "there was a lot of conflicting information that we were trying to make sense of" at the time. She said that the intelligence community was still trying to determine what happened.
Yet another email detailed the notes from a phone call between Clinton and the Libyan president while the attack was going on.
Clinton spoke of a "gun battle ... which I understand Ansar al-Sharia is claiming responsibiliy for."
At the hearing, Clinton said she still believes to this day that the video played some sort of role in the attack.
On "Fox and Friends" today, Kimberly Guilfoyle drilled down on the contents of these emails with Rep. Jordan.
He said the emails prove that Clinton "knew on the day of the attack that it was a terrorist attack, yet she told the American people something else."
Jordan said in private conversations, administration officials, including Clinton, "were telling the truth" about who was behind the attack.
He noted that before the attack had even ended, Clinton was making sure the White House knew about then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney's statement.
"They were talking politics before the attack was even over. ... Yesterday we had, I think, some pretty compelling evidence that highlighted that fact," he said.
Jordan said the committee's investigation will move forward with more interviews, adding that there is lot more "ground to cover."
