JACKSON, Miss.–Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker spoke this week about the Benghazi situation that has been ongoing.
The September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, one of which was a U.S. ambassador, has lead to more hearings this week about the events that unfolded that day.
“The Secretary of State Hilary Clinton on her way out the door said what difference does this make?,” said Senator Wicker in an interview on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV. “I think it makes a lot of difference.”
Many have pointed to this incident as possibly putting an end to her Presidential hopes in 2016 if she were to run.
“A career diplomat that knew what he was talking about asked for more security,” said Wicker. “He said he needed it.”
Republicans and Democrats have continued to be at odds over whether the situation could have been handled any differently, and and specifically if there was a coverup of facts.
“If this [situation] had happened during an election time with George W. Bush running for election I think it would have brought down the campaign,” stated Wicker.
Wicker said in the interview that he believes Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is correct in saying that the dam is about to break in regards to the truth about the Benghazi facts.
