Hillary asks, “What difference at this point does it make?”

5

A tense exchange between Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as Johnson tried to find out why the White House fabricated a story about protestors rioting in Benghazi prior to our ambassador’s murder. A clearly exasperated Clinton asks at one point, “What difference at this point does it make?”

WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes interviewed Johnson shortly afterwards (podcast) and has the transcript.

The Clinton playbook from the 1990s is still the same. No accountability. Just “move on.”

I’m amazed to see some liberals defending Clinton’s performance today, as if shouting and throwing a tantrum is somehow winning a debate. Of course, that’s what they thought when the Capitol in Madison was occupied, too.

But when the Secretary of State says it no longer matters if the administration lied about the circumstances of an American ambassador’s death, then she isn’t fit to hold the office. It’s one thing to be wrong. It’s another thing to be an accomplice to a brazen lie over a foreign policy crisis.

“What does it matter now?” It should matter now, and the American people are owed answers about why a tale was spun of a protest getting out of control instead of acknowledging the murder of an American ambassador was a terrorist attack. But the only conclusion we can draw from Clinton’s performance today is that she doesn’t care about the truth. The administration got through another day, and there’s always another lie to be told tomorrow.
