Former Clinton spokeswoman grilled on Benghazi edits

Former State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland answered numerous questions over her role in editing the Benghazi talking points during her confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Thursday.

Nuland, President Obama’s nominee to serve as the assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs, denied making any changes to the infamous talking points used by then-U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice on the Sunday talk shows after the attack.

“At no point was I ever told to object to anything…and I did not make any edits, as I said,” Nuland told the committee.

She also denied ever speaking to then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton about the talking points.

Grilled specifically by Republican senators on her email exchanges after the Benghazi terror attack, Nulan reiterated she served in a “communications role” – not a policy role.

“In the 2012 email exchange, Ms. Nuland had expressed concern about releasing certain information,” the Wall Street Journal reported. “In one instance, she objected to allowing lawmakers to identify terrorist groups by name.”

Multiple sources reported that Nuland is expected to be confirmed despite the questions over Benghazi.
