>> we have a situation where we have congressman mccarthy make it clear that what this is all about. then of course have the hand-picked member of the republican staff to affirm what mr. mccarthy has already stated. e then have congressman hannah we've been asked to not listen to the words of mccarthy, and not listen to the words of others but look at the actions of the republican staff to affirm what and this morning again we have
a situation where it is clear the hen we look at actions calling ms. abdin in, letting the press know about her me the location of the interview when she based on we've stimony that gotten has no -- no policy responsibilities, no operational responsibilities, clinton th secretary on the night of this phenomenal tragedy only leaves one to ask , did the gentleman congressman mccarthy congressman hannah and mr. pod
isca tell the truth. that's question. the question also becomes a taxpayer is funded effort to derail the candidacy of hillary clinton. and to be very frank with you, a taxpayer the statements of those three gentlemen and i match them up with what we have been saying all along, the -- when we look at what they do and we look at what the gentlemen said, they all match. it comes together. it is interesting to note that those people most them up with been saying all along, the -- when we look at what closely associated with hillary clinton eem to be treated differently.

because sometimes they seem to get lost in all of this. but when we met with the families they only asked for three things. that's all. and they basically begged us do ot make this a political football. we football. we beg you. some of them with tears in their eyes. the second thing they asked for find out what happened on that night and they asked us for a third thing and that was do everything in your power to make sure this does not happen to someone else. ladies and gentlemen, i think that no matter how you look at when you have when you have th person in the republican party who comes forward the person plans with the speaker and the person who will continue to be -- who is one step away from becoming the speaker to tell you that this is all about a taxpayer funded political effort to derail the campaign of hillary clinton, ladies and gentlemen, that is a problem.
i am not answering plans any questions. d so again i came here today out of respect for ms. abdin. and i'm hoping that there will very targeted leaks give a partial -- part of the story. but the whole storyifment this is the last point. i've said it over and over again. e-mails of mr. blumthal were released i said look don't just release the e-mails. release the whole transcript so that the press and the american eople can see the whole story. and we did not get a vote did not get an opportunity to do
that. hopefully come thursday clinton will have her day to explain all of this. i look forward to her testimony. and i want to thank all of you or being here. clinton will har >> congress returns this week with several items on the agenda and the house members consider a measure to prevent default on the national debt another reauthorizing federal school vouchers for schools in washington, d.c. later in the week we expect work on a budget reconciliation federal school vouchers for schools in washington, d.c. later in the week we expect work on a budget reconciliation package that would repeal planned parenthood.
