Fox's Shepard Smith: Benghazi Committee Took 2 Years And Spent $7 Million But Found “No New Evidence”
Smith: “After A Two-Year, $7 Million Investigation ... The Authors Of The Report Make No New Accusations And Provide No New Evidence Of Wrongdoing Against The Former Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton”
From the June 28 edition of Fox News’ Shepard Smith Reporting:
SHEPARD SMITH (HOST): The House committee investigating the deadly terror attack in Benghazi today released its report. After a two-year, $7 million investigation the eighth investigation to date, the authors of the report make no new accusations and provide no new evidence of wrongdoing against the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But the report does blame the Obama administration, the CIA, and the U.S. military for responding too slowly to the attack. Quoting from the report, “Despite President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta's clear orders to deploy military assets, nothing was sent to Benghazi and nothing was en route to Libya at the time the last two Americans were killed almost eight hours after the attack began,” unquote. The committee's chairman, Trey Gowdy, says the report does not target Secretary Clinton, but Democrats on the panel have accused him and other Republicans of doing exactly that. The Democrats released their own report on the committee's investigation. They say the military could not have done anything differently to save the lives of the four Americans killed in the attack; Ambassador Chris Stevens, the State Department officer Sean Smith, and former Navy S.E.A.L.s Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
