(CHICAGO) Two members of Congress from Illinois, Republican Peter Roskam and Democrat Tammy Duckworth, are on the Benghazi committee and questioned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Roskam was the first Republican who got to grill Clinton. He called our policy in Libya a disaster and tried to pin it on Clinton.
“You saw it, you drove it, you articulated it and you persuaded people, did I get that wrong?” Roskam asked.
“Well congressman, I was the Secretary of State. My job was to conduct the diplomacy,” Clinton said.
Duckworth, a Senate candidate, was the first Democrat to question Clinton. It was more of a lovefest.
“Even as a young platoon leader, we got and read [reviews] that gives the individual solder an idea of what the Defense Department is trying to do and I understand you initiated something similar in the State Department,” Duckworth said.
“I agree with you completely congresswoman. It’s a very successful road map as to where we should be going and I’m impressed that as a platoon leader it was something that you took into account,” Clinton said.
