Things Go Horribly Wrong for Fox News When They Ask GOP Congressman for Benghazi Evidence
Fox News tried to push their Benghazi conspiracy theory today, but things went horribly wrong when they asked Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz for evidence and he couldn’t provide any.
WALLACE: Congressman Chaffetz, has the Obama admininstration blocked potential witnesses from testifying or not?
CHAFFETZ: Absolutely, and more than one. We’ve asked for the non-classified version of how did these people get an attorney who has a degree of classified information, and they still haven’t given us that. No, there are people out there that wanna testify that have been suppressed.
WALLACE: But you heard the State Department person just say that nobody either a lawyer or a witness has requested to testify.
CHAFFETZ: Because they’re scared to death of what the State Department is doing to them. That’s what. Look we’re the other branch of government. They’re supposed to be able to come to congress, and be able to share this type of information. That has not happened, because the administration has suppressed. We have a person who was injured eight months ago who’s still in the hospital. They changed his name on the medical records. This is a story of the State Department doing things that haven’t been done in any other case.
WALLACE: Are you saying? Again, I want to bring in Congressman Lynch. Tell me-a direct threat, a direct act of intimidation against a potential witness?
CHAFFETZ: Yes, and I think we’ll probably…
WALLACE: Tell me one… tell what’s been said.
CHAFFETZ: There are people, more than one, that have felt intimidation from the State Department.
