Lindsey Graham Won’t Accept New Benghazi Report: It’s ‘Full Of Crap’

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday refused to accept that the new House Benghazi report cleared the Obama administration of any wrongdoing in its response to the Benghazi attack.

“I think the report is full of crap,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The senator insisted that members of the administration altered the Benghazi talking points after the attack.

“I’m saying that anybody who has followed Benghazi at all knows that the CIA deputy director did not come forward to tell Congress what role he played in changing the talking points,” he said. “And the only way we knew he was involved is when he told a representative at the White House, I’m going to do a hard review of this, a hard rewrite.”

CNN host Gloria Borger then told Graham that the House report concludes that the administration received bad information at first and did not lie.

“That’s a bunch of garbage,” Graham shot back. “That’s a complete bunch of garbage.”
