The 7 Most Startling Things the Senate Judiciary Committee Asked Hillary Clinton

AN UP-HILLARY BATTLE DEPT.

Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee grilled Hillary Clinton about her failure to prevent the embassy attack in Benghazi. It was an eye-opening discussion (when it wasn’t eye-closingly boring)…
