Pelosi: Benghazi is a diversion, ‘can’t we talk about something else?’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed the Benghazi-related emails recently released by the White House as nothing new, refusing to acknowledge any wrongdoing by the administration.

“I haven’t seen it, but I will say this again — diversion, subterfuge — Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Why aren’t we talking about something else?” Pelosi said at Thursday’s press conference responding to a question from Breitbart News. “What I know of what I’ve read in the press about the emails was what was put out there before. I don’t think there was anything new there.”

Pelosi rebuffed the idea that the White House may have been hiding something by not releasing the emails under the Freedom of Information Act, but instead waited for a subpoena, adding that Republicans should focus on more important issues.

“If you all want to sit around and talk about Benghazi, you can sit around and talk about Benghazi, but the fact is, that’s a subterfuge,” she said. “They don’t want to talk about jobs, growth, immigration, voting rights–you name it.”
