Mitchell questioned Todd about Clinton, “Chuck, you watched it all. She still has the hurdle of the FBI investigation but she’s really put at least the Republican-led Benghazi issue to bed, if not the larger question of the foreign policy, that toppled Gadhafi and led to arguably the disaster in Libya.” (RELATED: Benghazi Victims’ Family Members BLAST Clinton After Hearing)

Todd responded, “I accept the first premise. I don’t accept the second premise. I think you’re right about Benghazi and the incident itself. I think that that is largely for her as a political problem put to bed.”

However “it’s very likely the Republican nominee is going — may get there because of national security issues and I think that her record as secretary of state, her interventionist instinct in Libya, is going to be fodder in a general election and is going to be, I think something that’s going to be difficult for her to defend.”
