I'm told it's worth waiting for UN ambassador Susan Rice she is back on Capitol Hill yet again today more meetings with lawmakers -- the White House response the tax and Ben Ghazi.
Yesterday she met with three top Republicans.
Who all said they were more disturbed about the situation after the meeting than they were when the meeting started have a list.
I'm more convinced than ever that it was bad it was -- justified.
Did -- this scenario.
As presented by ambassador rise and President Obama.
Before an election so that was Lindsey Graham John McCain.
Was out there Kelly hey -- Republican senator Jim in half as a member of the senate foreign relations and armed services committees and sir good morning to you.
How good morning you're on the record already saying that you will not support her -- she is nominated be secretary of state but not just because of Libya.
What's the problem yet he yeah let -- clarify that.
My first thought -- was like if Susan Rice was thrown under the bus in that they all knew that she didn't have the information at the CIA.
Then I thought you'd have to feel sorry for -- Yesterday in talking to some of those who -- I'm absolutely convinced in my mind bill that she's part of the cover up she knew all the time the CIA information that was get -- but.
Your your points very good I would have a hard time effect I could not support her.
And it is secretary of state if she is nominated public any reason why I mean lists several and know our TV -- because -- Korea Syria.
Israel's relationship of the Palestinians.
Well sure he's on the wrong side of the UN membership of the Palestinian Authority.
She's and all of these giveaways sovereignty things that come up for in the United Nations she's on the opposite side of where I am.
She is kept on funding UNESCO.
Which was in violation I believe the instructions given to her.
Do law and so she's on the opposite side of every issue that I didn't -- for that -- I would probably I would have -- -- anyway but let it -- -- I know I'm convinced.
-- it appears to me and many others that -- when we listen to folks like yourself talk.
That this issue is much bigger than than than Susan Rice and the potential position of secretary of state.
Blitzer let me just drilled on -- -- one who -- one area here.
Because yesterday the CIA acting director at 10 AM apparently blamed the FBI for changing the language in the guidance of the talking points.
At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the CIA acting director came back and said it was the CIA after all.
Now what explains that.
I don't know what explains that because we're not -- the same story that you have to keep in mind this step is really coming from.
The White House their hope and this will go away.
In this has been something that I think is now a much more of a problem after yesterday probably will be today and I don't -- to be one of the senators.
That she cares to talk about maybe it's because.
I'm opposed to her from her positions.
As ambassador to the United Nations and nothing else I think.
It would could change my mind.
But and based on that answer it appears in your women take this issue higher than just.
Susan Rice becomes the bank Gaza.
Oh absolutely well all these things in this gonna go down as the biggest cover up in history.
They all knew that there -- polluted go away their hope and personal to have it go beyond the election date which it did that now people are not gonna forget.
Not gonna forget that the administration deliberately covered this.
In misrepresented what happened in the -- the Internet in that the death of four people one of whom was a good friend of mine ambassador Stevens.
The relative to get that.
The biggest cover up an American history.
It could be that you see -- -- -- -- -- -- yes here.
What senator Lieberman came out yesterday afternoon.
-- seen -- you know he's listed as an independent caucus with the Democrats but he seemed to take more of a conciliatory tone towards Susan writes.
And after hearing his explanation you wonder of this is now developing into a Republican vs Democrat issue.
And if that's the case you're in the minority.
So that's true.
But let's keep in mind -- senator Lieberman is neither Republican nor Democrat but he -- on the Democrat side.
I generally his attitude toward.
It's much more much different than mine so I think it goes back to.
What do you see in that role and that's what I think.
But it is the issue move forward if it's Democrats on one side and Republicans on the other or.
Was this some sort of trial balloon floated by the White House to see how Susan Rice.
Was received by your fellow senators on me.
I think that's part of it I think it's also -- part of checking out to see if there's enough support there should he nominated her to be secretary of state that she would be able to survive.
And I think that they're in the process of learning that now.
I hope that they they couldn't.
It is an intriguing issue sir thank you for your time we're gonna watch and see what comes of these meetings today.
We did not expect the reaction we got yesterday from McCain -- -- But it was a major -- sir thank you senator yesterday take you -- mark.
