Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich blasted the Obama administration’s handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, tweeting that the growing scandal is bigger than Watergate.
“No one died at Watergate! The Obama lies about Benghazi and Biden's deliberate lies Thursday night should be a bigger scandal than Nixon,” declared Gingrich.
Gingrich said it is clear that Vice President Joe Biden was lying about the incident during Thursday’s debate with GOP vice presidential challenger Paul Ryan.
“It is clear the Obama team decided to have the vice president lie about an event that killed four Americans, including an ambassador,” Gingrich tweeted.
He believes that the facts surrounding the Sept. 11 terrorist strike that claimed the lives of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others should be a major focus of the remaining two presidential debates.
“Now had over a month of dishonesty and cover-up from Obama team about Benghazi,” Gingrich wrote on Saturday. “Getting to truth should be number one goal next two debates.”
