Benghazi: A cover-up or politics?

How the administration handled the aftermath of the deadly attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya is dominating the headlines and Beltway politics.

At Tuesday’s White House press briefing a reporter asked, "President Obama is being compared to President Nixon . How does he feel about that?

"I can tell you that people who make those comparisons need to check their history because what we have here with one issue Benghazi is so clearly, as we are learning more and more a political sideshow, a deliberate effort to politicize a tragedy," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

Erin Burnett asks -  is it a political side-show or a Obama administration cover-up?

Outfront tonight: Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff of California.
