Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he believed the House Intelligence Committee’s Benghazi report, which vindicated many administration claims, was “full of crap.” (VIDEO: Reporters Mock State Department Spokesman For Benghazi Spin)
GRAHAM: I think the report’s full of crap, quite frankly.
HOST GLORIA BORGER: Why? Why?
GRAHAM: The Deputy Director of the CIA when I asked him, “Do you know who changed the talking points?” with Senator Ayotte and McCain, and Susan Rice sitting by his side said the FBI changed the talking points, when in came to al-Qaida. Only later did we find out through a lawsuit that Mike Morell was deeply involved in changing the talking points, the deputy director of the FBI, when he was sitting in front of a congressional panel and he was asked, “Does anybody here know who changed the talking points?” He sat silent. So the intel community through him lied.
BORGER: So you’re saying the intel community is lying to the House Intelligence Committee? The administration’s not exonerated…?
GRAHAM: No, I’m saying the House Intelligence Committee is doing a lousy job policing their own.
