Rep. Mike Pompeo: Clinton's Benghazi Testimony "Good Theater"

Rep. Mike Pompeo who grilled Hillary Clinton before the House Select Committee on Benghazi last week tells Newsmax TV the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential front-runner's 11 hours of testimony was "good theater."

"[The media] praised her for her theater and I'll give you, it was good theater. But the facts are the facts and the facts will long outlast the behavior of any of us, frankly, at the hearing," Pompeo, a Kansas Republican, said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"There was much that was learned by the American people. I can tell you, there were many facts that no one's really said much about that the committee learned that we will use as we continue our investigation."

One of those came when Pompeo asked Clinton is she was ever aware of efforts by the U.S. government to provide weapons to Libyan rebels or Syrian rebels either directly or through a third party or country. "No," Clinton answered.

Pompeo asked if she had ever considered using private security experts to arm the opposition in Libya. "Not seriously, no," she answered. Pompeo then read from an email from Clinton to an aide: "FYI, the idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered."

Pompeo told Malzberg: "She paused and said, well no, not seriously. Which is a yes. Which means she did consider it."

"So we have some work to do to follow up and make sure we understand all of the activities because they go to how our government was behaving in Libya and how we ended up that day with all of that risk to the four Americans."

The committee is probing the attack in Benghazi, Libya, when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed during an uprising on September 11, 2012 — and whether Clinton, as secretary of state, was negligent in failing to protect them. Democrats say the investigation is a witch hunt designed to hurt Clinton's presidential campaign.
