The State Department have communication with president Obama's reelection campaign in the critical days after Ben Ghazi terror attack that is what the Republican National Committee wants to know.
It is taking action to find out RNC chair rice previous joins us -- Hey good evening Greta.
OK so first of all what have you done that to try to find out -- -- the State Department had communications with the Obama campaign.
-- -- citizens that is entitled to open records request so we just took our.
Our -- it to ask the State Department to release any and all emails that.
Relate to bring guys -- Libya that came from any email address that Barack Obama or the DNC and I think it's a reasonable question.
There's so much -- -- not talk about his talking points why.
Think if -- -- -- I think is there any is there any sort of -- Leon.
Evidence or suggestion -- even says this -- and I think.
Or assists just so -- -- that fishing exclusive big act fishing expedition or is this just something like you're six cents.
I think it's just a matter of the fact that we're in the closing days of the campaign there was so much talk about these talking points and what they would say and not today.
And the fact that the CA.
Called it an act of -- -- -- almost immediately but then all of this was switched up and changed.
And and Susan Rice is talking points for change she came on on the talk shows singing a different tune.
I just think that's a reasonable question for us ask which is has who was the campaign.
Or was anybody at the DNC involved in any way in communication with the State Department.
On this issue in a listen.
But the circumstantial evidence.
I think it's certainly there to suggest that somehow some political decisions were being made -- lest we asked the question.
-- up and and you've seen plenty of subpoenas -- and defensive candidate -- comes this is pretty simple stuff that's one.
Question and you know what it's a simple question and it could hear it very simple answer the stadium.
-- spot and two sentences.
-- here's your your major problem is that in this city we all now pretty much know the dangers of email.
I suspect if there was any -- funny business going on between the State Department in the DNC.
Most likely it was done in a non State Department emails was done that way right.
Know people still slip up and make mistakes in user email.
But -- it's it would seem to me if you had a more effective way to go -- have to get the information try to seek if you go to the DNC somehow which is not government entity.
Or to the reelection campaign and see if they had any communications with -- -- at the state bar there might be more likely if there is taping their two that do catch something it.
You know -- to Greta though it in in court and litigation you have to make you make your record two and so people don't comply with an open records request or.
There's been there's been rulings -- that just it just because you don't use a State Department email doesn't mean you might be subject to.
An official request that your otherwise using on a personal email address and so -- while that's.
She's looking crisis and -- difficult.
So -- it matters if we just didn't -- another this you re doing all this stuff they're not supposed to be doing on your private day email account.
And you work for like the -- we think that they're gonna sort of say oh you know what I didn't use a State Department email but I used my personal around so -- this red neck and neck can be but.
I've also been involved in cases and my previous life where eventually.
You can get to.
Those emails and so I think it's also.
-- posing the question posing the question to the Washington beltway which is.
Is anyone thinking about.
The campaign as anyone thinking about the DNC -- I'm not I don't believe it's our role this are getting involved and you know what that did.
Did the CI AEA say that the DOJ.
I think that's totally up to.
The members of congress and Darrell ice and I think they're doing a great job.
But I do think that it's reasonable for the national political party at the republic on the Republican side that asked the question.
As to whether or not the campaigns were involved.
In shaping the talking points and Ben Ghazi and I think it's an important question and we asked that.
Well I should -- a lot of important unanswered questions in this city end though clearly you can't run on -- -- -- hopefully with all who get answered and then we can go on but anyway.
Susan thank you very much chairman.
You bet thank you Greta.
