Trey Gowdy on Benghazi Hearing: Committee Was Fair to Hillary

After more than 11 hours of testimony by Hillary Clinton before a special House panel on the 2012 Benghazi attacks, "I frankly still can't tell you what she's taken responsibility for," Chairman Trey Gowdy said Friday.

Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican, told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News that Clinton was "a good witness" on Thursday, but that "this is not the first time she has appeared before a congressional committee."

Clinton first testified before House and Senate committees on the Libyan assaults that killed four Americans in January 2013.

Gowdy said that he believed that his 12-member committee was fair to the former secretary of state, even though some of the exchanges with Republicans grew intense at various times.

"I let her answer the questions fully," he said. "I thought some of our questions were different, but there was a certain familiarity to her answers.

"On some responses, there was a certain level of candidness," though Gowdy added that he was not clear whether Clinton accepted full responsibility for the security issues that led to the attacks.

"What are you taking responsibility for?" he told Van Susteren. "The three things we think she should take responsibility for she pushed off on other people.

"I will let the American people decide whether she was candid or not.

"She was not cut off and given every opportunity to answer the questions," Gowdy added. "I thought the questions were new, but I thought the answers were a little old."
