Rep. Adam Kinzinger says former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got angry in a briefing with congressmen about the attack last year on the U.S. mission in Benghazi when one lawmaker suggested it was an act of terror.

"I don't care about the yelling so much. She yelled. But I care more about the fact this was a terror attack. And a member of Congress, who has a right to know this and ask these questions, was chided for even saying what we eventually found out was the truth," the Illinois Republican said Friday on "Fox & Friends."

He said the meeting between Clinton and lawmakers took place two days after the Sept. 11, 2012 attack. At that time, the administration still maintained that the attack that killed four Americans was sparked by an American-made anti-Islam video that was posted on YouTube and seen around the world.

"I sat there and could not believe the Secretary actually believes this is a YouTube video, because of how passionately she argued it," Kinzinger said.

Kinzinger first referenced the Clinton briefing in a town hall meeting back in Illinois on Wednesday. He would not name the congressman to whom Clinton's alleged "yelling" was directed.

"We find out that they knew the whole time this was a terror attack, including when it was happening," Kinzinger said on the Fox show.

"The president didn't want to admit it. He didn't want to say it. He was more interested in getting through November. That's my belief," he added.
