State Dept does a ‘document dump’ late on a Friday – 97 pages of documents relating to Ambassador Susan Rice’s television appearances
Below was emailed to me from FNC’s James Rosen
State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki:
‘Our utmost priority is the safety and security of our men and women who serve overseas, which is why we are focused on the implementation of the 29 recommendations of the independent Benghazi Accountability Review Board. Since September, the Department has demonstrated an unprecedented degree of cooperation with Congress, taking part in eight hearings and thirty-five inter-agency briefings for Members and staff. We have accommodated previous requests for information from the House Oversight Committee by providing 25,000 pages of documents for their review….
….Today, after investing countless additional hours re-reviewing our records, the Department provided the Committee with 97 pages of documents that we have identified in searching for records up to the time of Ambassador Rice’s television appearance….
Friday’s 97-page document dump is in response to a subpoena from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to the State Department served a few weeks ago.
Its purpose: to obtain talking points connected to Susan Rice’s September 16, 2012 appearances on CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, and CNN’s Sunday morning talk shows five days post the September 11th 2012 Benghazi attacks which resulted in the death of four Americans, i.e., U. S. Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, Information Officer, Sean Smith, Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
