Before he died as a dying declaration.
What precisely did he say to you.
He said Greg were under attack.
Republican congressman -- -- is one of the most outspoken critics of how the Obama.
Administration has handled the dangerous situation is situation and got -- before during and after the attacks that left four Americans debt.
Today even after the testimony of three whistle blowers he says there are still many unanswered questions.
-- -- joins us now live sir thank you for tuning -- with us today.
-- -- happy Mother's Day.
We'll take you very much and -- let me ask you there have been a lot of your colleagues across the aisle -- said this is just a political witch -- that these whistle blowers are being used for political purposes by Republicans.
And they senate there was nothing new that they learned this week from this hearing but I have to ask you about something specific you mentioned that was new to me.
Maybe they already knew this and nine and in email in September I believe on September 12 that involves the acting assistant secretary for near eastern affairs Beth Jones.
And how she referred to what they knew about the attack -- the attackers at that time.
For folks -- -- the hearing walk us through that.
Well this September the twelfth at factories just after -- September the twelfth and Beth Jones -- -- and acting assistant secretary of state sent an email.
Essentially telling the Libyan ambassador we know that this attack was was conducted by a terrorist group.
So this is the day after being Ghazi.
Then you fast Ford and and President Obama and and and Secretary Clinton and ambassador rice are all talking about a video a spontaneous.
Not pre plan not premeditated.
Demonstration well that they knew on September the twelfth but that was -- So you go -- the twelve different iterations of their talking points -- -- factor in the fact that Victoria New -- who's the spokesperson for the Department of State.
One of the talking points edited because they were fearful that the Department of State would be criticized.
So -- colleagues I just.
So you know in your viewers know.
My colleagues always say that they say it's not true is not true it's not true that -- they say it's old news you're never gonna get them to say yeah that was an interesting -- revelation we have been hearing.
But trust -- they were surprised.
They didn't know it the administration did know that we had that email.
And it is damaging to the narrative put forth by.
And speaking of -- used said during these hearings to the families of the victims he said you don't care quote.
Don't give a damn whose careers and -- -- you're going to get to the answers.
At this point with four American lives lost and many others that were endangered -- people who are still recovering.
Whose career do you think is being protected at this point.
Well I think prior to November's election it was a concerted effort to save -- protect the president's second term aspirations.
He's been reelected in part because we did have all the answers to big Ghazi.
But but let's don't -- each other but Hillary Clinton wants to be the president United States if she was -- that's great more power to work.
But she's going to give an accounting for why she was obsessed with -- Ghazi wash -- proved a facility that didn't meet specifications.
She's gonna give -- an account for what role with the -- she played in the decision not to send assets during the siege itself.
And she most assuredly is gonna give an accounting -- what role she played in keeping the truth from the American people.
For -- weeks and months and months after being Ghazi.
And the only explanation knocking -- what was Shannon a big people whole lot when the truth serves them better that they just don't.
They tell the truth what it -- and -- so what gonna find out.
Why they misled us and we're gonna find out no matter how many witnesses we have to call.
And how many Saturday Night Live skit wanna -- we're gonna find out what happened in the Gaza -- she likes it or not.
We'll -- your comments there lend credence to the Democrat's accusations that this is all about stopping Hillary Clinton from becoming president in 2016.
Well I wish I had the power to do that.
Whether she runs for president some she's gonna have to decide -- I'll I'll tell you that she can't have -- both ways.
You can't go farewell -- talking about how great you were as a secretary of state and then not have to give an accounting or be held responsible and accountable.
We're decisions -- on your watch.
Let's assume -- -- she wants to run for president we also happen a call that commander in chief.
Right -- -- that's the commander in chief so is she.
Eligible for a promotion based -- how she handled the body of work that she had when she was the secretary of state.
I'm I'm laid out in politics in 26 today I who -- were -- I'll tell you this Hubbell former prosecutor that has looked at at at spouses and parents and children who have suffered at the hands of murders.
If nothing else politics aside I want to give those -- -- members the peace of knowing.
Exactly what happened to their loved ones and the politics can fall wherever night.
