We've been very clear from the beginning that she had a stomach virus and ugly stomach virus.
She got very dehydrated she fainted.
It was later discovered she -- had sustained a concussion.
On doctor's orders she is working at home this week she's on the -- she's going to be absolutely fine.
She is working at home as you know she got the air -- report yesterday.
She read through it yesterday she's been working on the letter that we'll go with it.
To the hill she stated on the phone and in email contact with senior staff -- Secretary Clinton not reviewing the AA RB report that is the independent panel report on the Ben Ghazi Libya attack that is actually up on Capitol Hill right now ahead of classified hearings this week to deputy secretaries will actually.
Testify in her stead.
After that virus and concussion that was talked about.
At the State Department this week as -- -- -- secretary of knives and firms we're back with the panel.
What about this the the issue the the whole issue Charles.
Former UN ambassador -- to both -- because that's a diplomatic illness.
And we heard from Victoria who knew him and -- -- bed bug.
I think that perhaps -- -- -- big guys he allergy she seems to have a severe good guys Realogy.
Five days after the attack.
She was not out there to give the to address the American people she sent out somebody whom the president himself -- had no idea it was underground -- only been guys in.
And actually -- she's supposed to speak to the congress about this year -- this.
Illness that American.
Say she doesn't have wanna be happy to -- and -- neurological exam but in the absence of that.
I'll take -- word but there is something strange about this she did say ostentatiously.
I take full responsibility for this.
For the attack and -- -- and she said that unity campaign.
Which is completely and utterly meaningless what does that mean.
In Britain where there was an invasion of the falcons a foreign secretary resigned over it.
You know it wasn't his fault as a matter of principle if it happens on your watch you resigned.
That our season gonna happen in her case but she won't even speak about it.
Which ought to be -- minimal requirement.
And I think that's incumbent upon her to do.
-- they're saying that she's open to testifying it's a scheduling issue now.
You know once you get into January.
-- into a new congress and what about that possible.
And she thought -- gonna named secretary of state right I mean there are people who are accusing her of lying and saying this is the -- concussion.
I think it would be really hard to -- a concussion and had it actually be leaked to the press on how that at the whole story was concocted.
That would be really quite brazen.
But she's been conspicuously absent from any situations ever since this happened on September.
Eleventh where she would have to talk about it.
Absence she did finally make a comment about Susan Rice but absent from -- her absent from.
Tet -- giving an account of what happened -- that -- exception of course of what Charles mentioned that she wanted to make a statement about being fully accountable.
She obviously is.
Examining -- prospects for her future she's considered the front runner for 2016.
And both parties.
And -- -- it ahead of -- and Republican prospects in the next presidential cycle.
On any testimony and Ben -- is going to be a very tough experience.
Putting off until January as a way of softening the blow.
But I think she she has to do it I'm not saying she's lying but it's that it's awkward this report is going to.
Create some secure we'll see how much when when we.
Hear what we hear means classified here.
That's -- report apparently comes out tomorrow and keep in mind and I'm I'm not a position.
And I can assess your current condition but.
In September you'll remember if you wouldn't be looked back at the wording she said she couldn't speak -- -- doesn't that point because she had quote in grueling week.
It does strain credulity and keep in mind this is not just about being -- it's about this administration's policy toward the Arab and Islamic world which is seen.
In the last four years a resurgence of Islamic activity in key big countries Egypt Syria will be even and -- I'm not suggesting the White House is responsible -- that but I am suggesting a Smart person could ask a series of pretty penetrating questions about the effects of their policy.
None of which appear to have borne fruit in Lisa helps us just -- -- within a pattern at some point it seems to -- secretary of state she should have to last -- what the left often says this.
Susan Rice that was a side show.
The -- what she's secretary of state she's responsible.
