Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton thinks the Benghazi Committee has become “a partisan arm of the Republican National Committee,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on “State of the Union.”
Tapper: You’re scheduled to testify before the Benghazi Committee and the House of Representatives in a few days. What are you expecting and how are you preparing?
Clinton: I really don’t know what to expect. I think it’s pretty clear that whatever they might have thought they were doing they ended up becoming a partisan arm of the Republican National Committee with an overwhelming focus on trying to — as they admitted — drive down my poll numbers. I already testified about Benghazi. I testified to the best of my ability before the senate and the house. I don’t know that I have very much to add. This is after all, the eighth investigation. Other committees of the Congress, standing committees with very experienced members and staff have all looked into this and basically just rejected the conspiracy theories that are still floating out there in some circles. So I really don’t know. I will do my best to answer their questions, but I don’t really know what their objective is right now.
