Judicial Watch is seeking answers from top Obama officials in relation to Benghazi.
The watchdog filed papers in court Thursday, asking for the depositions of former United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice and White House Communications adviser Ben Rhodes.
The pair will likely be grilled about their decision to describe Benghazi as a “protest-gone awry” when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had already declared it terrorism.
“And this was an important issue, the Benghazi scandal led to the killing of four innocent Americans, and you can see from this discovery and what we are having to figure out in terms of the way this case was derailed, dishonestly, what we’ve had to go through just to get basic answers to this major, major investigation,” explained Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Judicial Watch believes the answer to this contradiction can be found on Clinton’s private email server, and that both Rice and Rhodes likely have information about those records.
