In what could turn out to be very interesting information, the Republican National Committee has requested emails and documents between the U.S. State Department and President Obama’s reelection campaign relating to the Benghazi terror attack.

Although it’s unclear why the RNC believes there would have been any communication between the State Department and Obama’s reelection staff, particularly about possible classified information, the RNC issued a press release explaining its Freedom of Information Act request to obtain such documentation:

In an effort to uncover the truth about why the Obama administration was not honest and forthcoming with the American people about the attacks in Benghazi, the Republican National Committee sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request letter asking for copies of all emails and documents between Department of State employees and staff on President Obama’s reelection campaign between September 11 and November 7, 2012, that include the words “Libya” and/or “Benghazi.” These dates include the day of the attack, the events surrounding Ambassador Rice’s Sunday Show appearances, and all of the presidential debates.

“Americans need to know whether the State Department had any contact with the staff of the president’s reelection campaign as talking points on Benghazi were drafted and edited. We certainly hope political considerations didn’t come into play when the administration decided what to tell the American people, but the administration’s changing answers certainly raise valid concerns that we don’t know the full story. Assuming there was no contact between the State Department and the campaign, this should be an easy request to fill,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
