Ill. Rep.: Clinton yelled at congressman for calling Benghazi a terrorist attack
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Illinois Republican, said he was shocked when former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton actually screamed at one of his congressional colleagues during a closed-door session to discuss Benghazi, Libya, just days after the terrorist attack.
“Two days after this attack, we were in a briefing with Hillary Clinton and she screamed at a member of Congress who dared suggest that this was a terrorist attack,” Mr. Kinzinger said earlier this week during a town hall meeting with constituents in Rochelle, Ill., the Blaze reported. “Now we find out that while it was happening, they knew it was a terrorist attack. These are the answers. We are going to get to the bottom of this.”
Mr. Kinzinger said Friday on Fox News it wasn’t so much Mrs. Clinton’s screaming that now bothered him. It was mostly the fact that the administration went to such great lengths to paint the attack as anything but an act of terrorism to the public. But privately, as it’s now known, the White House and cabinet level officials were well aware the attack was rooted in terrorism, he said.
He declined to identify the congressional member who was the target of Mrs. Clinton’s screams, saying it was up to that member to come forward if he or she wanted to be known. But he also said that there were “plenty of witnesses” in the room who saw and heard the verbal attack.
