NH Sen. Ayotte calls for full-scale Benghazi investigation
In congressional testimony last week, Eric Nordstrom, who served as a State Department regional security officer in Libya at the time of the attack, said all legally-mandated protective measures for the Benghazi complex were not in place at the time of the attack. Nordstrom said that under federal law, exceptions to the security requirements can only be made with the approval of the Secretary of State.
Ayotte said further investigation of Clinton's role is appropriate, denying that the questions being raised are grounded in partisan politics.
"The person representing the State Department happened to be Victoria Nuland, who has worked for Democrats and Republicans alike, at one time worked for Vice President Cheney," Durbin said. "She's certainly not a partisan in this exchange."
