Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has said that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response to the storming of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last year should prevent her from holding public office ever again. Paul made the comments during a speech at the Spirit of Reagan Award Ceremony hosted by the Missouri Republican Party last week.
Sen. Rand Paul said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response to the deadly attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya last fall should prevent her from ever holding public office again.
The Kentucky Republican made the remark last week in a speech to the Missouri Republican Party, which just released a full video of his address in a fundraising appeal Tuesday morning.
During a Senate Foreign Affairs Committee hearing earlier this year, Paul told Clinton that he would have relieved her of her position because she didn’t read the cable communications requesting additional help and security in Libya.
