During a campaign rally in Connecticut, former President Bill Clinton said his wife, Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ate Republicans' "lunch" on Benghazi (video below).
According to Breitbart, the former president said:
They had seven committees look into that Benghazi thing. The first six were honest committees, chaired by Republicans. They came up with the same thing. They said, "Look, yeah, there needs to be some changes made, but she's not responsible." No secretary of state has ever been responsible for security stuff. But she did immediately take responsibility for implementing the recommendations. End of story. Well who cares about that. Who cares that that’s the only time in the history of the country any party has ever politicized foreign policy and the loss of life in the service of America in that way? You never hear that in the press. They said breathlessly we know there’s now a special committee which questioned her for 11 hours, and if I can be colloquial I think she ate their lunch because it was obvious that they were so political. They were so political.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump recently celebrated several primary victories, and both essentially declared themselves their parties’ nominees.
“I consider myself the presumptive nominee,” Trump said following five wins. “Gov. Kasich and Sen. Cruz have really, really hurt themselves with a faulty deal that was defaulted on before it was even started."
Clinton said she would devote her time to winning over the supporters of her rival, Bernie Sanders.
"Whether you support Sen. Sanders or you support me, there's much more that unites us than divides us," Clinton said in Philadelphia, CNN reported.
Trump criticized Clinton for using the “woman card,” saying that she wouldn’t “get five percent of the vote” if she were a man. That remark promoted a strong response from the Democratic front-runner.
“The other day, Mr. Trump accused me of playing the woman card. Well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in,” she said.
