Well, Lindsey Graham can cancel those cocktail party invitations.
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina pledged last night on Fox News to block President Obama’s secretary of defense nominee, Chuck Hagel, until Leon Panetta testifies on the Benghazi terror attack.
“All right, Senator Hagel has been nominated by the president for secretary of defense. How are you going to vote on that one?” Fox host Greta Van Susteren asked Graham.
“It will depend on what he says on the hearing Thursday. But the one thing I’m not going to do is vote on a new secretary of defense until the old secretary of defense, Leon Panetta, who I like very much, testifies about what happened in Benghazi,” said Graham.
“I haven’t forgotten about Benghazi. Hillary Clinton got away with murder, in my view. She said they had a clear-eyed view of the threats. How could you have a clear-eyed of the threats in Benghazi when you didn’t know about the ambassador’s cable coming back from Libya?”
