RNC Chair: Hillary Just ‘Playing Politics’ With Benghazi Book Chapter

June 1, 2014 1:27 p.m.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday said that Hillary Clinton is playing a political game “24/7.”

Clinton leaked a chapter in her book about benghazi to Politico, in which she defended her decision not to go on the Sunday shows after the Benghazi attack. Priebus criticized the chapter on Benghazi in her book as an attempt to cover herself politically.

“Hilary has been playing politics about this issue from the very beginning, and she is launching an organized political defense,” Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Their people are trying to preempt or stop any more criticism that she’s been receiving on Benghazi.”

“She played a part in the White House’s cover up of what this is all about in Benghazi. It was a terrorist attack. Our heroes and diplomats have died and were murdered, and she continues to play politics,” he continued. “Hillary Clinton is politics 24-7, and this is no different.”
