Rand Paul on Benghazi backlash: "Never understood the cover-up"

Is there more fallout yet to come over the September 11th attacks in Benghazi?

Republicans say the investigation isn't over, despite yesterday's Congressional testimony from so-called "whistle-blowers."

So what more are they looking for?

Rand Paul: Clinton should never hold high office

Former Arkansas Governor and one-time GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee made one suggestion on his radio show this week.

"I believe that before it's all over, this president will not fill out his full term. I know that puts me on a limb. But this is not minor. It wasn't minor when Richard Nixon lied to the American people and worked with those in his administration to cover-up what really happened in Watergate," Huckabee said on The Mike Huckabee Show.

But do other Republicans agree that President Obama should be impeached?

OutFront tonight: Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.

    Why are these GOP leaders so afraid of Hillary Clinton? I will answer my own question. Because if and when Hillary runs for the Presidency, She will win. They are trying to smear her starting now. Rand Paul, why don't you run and try. You will fail miserably. Huckabee, you have tried and you have lost.

    Timeline error: It has been repeatedly said that they didn't send forces during the attack on Benghazi because they wouldn't have arrived in time...

    There is no way they could have know at the time of the attack how long it would have lasted.

    'So-called whistleblowers' – Those gentlemen are patriots and should be commended for coming forward. In the end, isn't it the truth that we are all after? If political motivations (election concerns) played a part in this doesn't the American public have a right to know? Who serves who?
