welcome to the overnight news. i'm jeff glore. the terror attack in benghazi is under focus. hillary clin will testify before the house committee investigating the attack. four americans were killed including ambassador chris stevens. john dickerson speck to elijah cummings for face the nation. >> i want to speak to you about people from your committee, you are familiar with their remarks, kevin mccarthy suggested this committee has driven downhill ear clinton's poll numbers. richard hannah, republican from new york said explicitly this was a political investigation.
a former investigator on your team has said this was a politically motivated investigation. why would all of these people say that? >> i guess because they didn't have any idea what the facts are. john. if you look at the facts. we have done 50 witnesses. one of whom you could argue was exclusively related to her e-mail. the shortest interview we have done. we have 50,000 new documents. less than 5% have anything to do with secretary clinton. she is an important witness, but she is one witness. and by the time we are through, john, we will have interviewed 70 witnesses. so, she is one out of the 70. i get she gets more attention than the other 69. but frankly if you ask me, the eyewitnesses on the ground that night in benghazi are more important to me as a former prosecutor than the former secretary of state. >> as a former prosecutor if you looked at evidence from republicans in your own party, who said this is a political
committee wouldn't that be enough to start an investigation into whether this is politically motivated. a pretty big body of evidence. >> actually, there is no evidence. there are three people who didn't have any idea what they're talking about. two of them are colleagues. the two republican members of the conference never asked for a update on our committee. they couldn't name three witnesses we tacked to. couldn't tell you a single document production we have received. and, the former staffer, left in june. so he has no idea what we have done since june. and his allegation about secretary clinton he never said until he sat down with somebody in your profession last friday. so the three wouldn't be called as a witness in my former job. because they have no firsthand knowledge. >> let me ask you, you told "the new york times" you would ask speaker boehner to allow another committee to focus on the clinton e-mails. you worried it would distract from the work of your committee. have your fears been realized? >> i don't know. other people are going to have to make the decision. i will tell you this. when speaker boehner called me. he never mentioned secretary
clinton's name. not once. in my position, it's always been the same. four dead americans is more than enough work for me. she is a witness. she was the secretary of state. you have to talk to her. talked to 50 not named clinton. another couple dozen not named clinton. there is attention associated with her. from my perspective. i am more interested in chris stevens' e-mails which we just received than i am her e-mails we just received. >> carly fiorina running for president, rendered her view on what the hearings are about this week. i wish for once mr. clinton would be prepared to stand and be -- i wish for once mrs. clinton would be prepared to stand. >> thursday is about benghazi, before, during, after. frankly, secretary clinton's
defense. she is going to have a lot more information about the before than she is the during and the after. so, i, i get that there is a presidential campaign going on. i have told my own republican colleagues and friends, shut up talking about things that you don't know anything about. and unless you are on the committee, you have no idea what we have done, why we have done it, what new facts we have found the we have found new facts, john that have absolutely nothing to do with her. >> what do you want to know from secretary clinton when she shows up? >> what i want to know is while violence was going up in libya why was our security profile going down. it wasn't staying the same. it was going down. in the past, john, she said i have people and processes in place to handle that. well, you also have people and processes in place to handle, drivel produced by sydney blumenthal. i want to know why certain things made tight your inbox, madam secretary, but the
pleadings of our own ambassador that you put in place for more security never bothered to make it to your inbox. i think that is a fair question. >> it is interesting that after 17 months, 4.7 million and counting of taxpayers' money that chairman is now saying he has another two dozen witnesses to interview. it's very interesting. and i do believe that, what he is trying to do, i listen to him carefully. now trying to shift back to where we should have been all along. that is looking at the benghazi incident. and, it's clear to me. he can try to dismiss the words of congressman mccarthy. the second. highest ranking member in congress. try to dismiss the word of congressman and of his hand picked investigator, who quit.
the fact is he keeps saying don't listen to what they say. they don't know anything. well we were on the committee too. by the way he said there were seven members. also five democrats. we know what has been going on. and, and, listen to this. he has not yet interviewed the head of the cia. but he has not yet interviewed the head of joint chiefs. the head of the, the secretary of defense. none of that. >> let me ask you, you mention, huma abedin, the adviser to hillary clinton, is this a sham on thursday? >> i think it's -- i think it is a sad day for, for all of us. because we made a commitment to the families. families came in with tears in their eyes literally. said please do not make this a political football. that's what happened. they said. find out more information about what did happen. and then they asked us to do, one other thing. and that is -- try to make sure
you figure out how this does not happen again. i think we failed in all three. if you listen to the chairman. he says two new things. looking at ambassador stevens' e-mails you get a sense how much he was pleading. not being listened to. lines of communication not open. new information about the ability to respond to an attack like that. isn't that worthy information? >> we need. we need to honor the family's request. we figure out how to make sure this doesn't happen again. i would be happy to look into that. we have investigations, by the way, i think, he talked about, sydney blumenthal and others. we need to have a transparent record. i am calling on him to make sure that -- he releases the transcripts of all the people we interviewed. most were state department people. or they were hillary clinton's former aides. people worked in her campaign.
give us a week, and we'll change your bed forever. want more freshness? add new downy fresh protect. dayquil liquid gels and go. hey buddy, let's get these but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. these are multi-symptom. well so are these. this one is max strength and fights mucus. that one doesn't. uh...think fast! you dropped something. oh...i'll put it back on the shelf... new from mucinex fast max. the only cold and flu liquid gel that's max-strength and fights mucus. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this.
the war of words heating up between donald trump and jeb bush. during the last gop debate. bush gave his brother, former george w. bush credit for keeping the nation safe on his watch. trump criticized that statement pointing out the 9/11 attacks happened with bush in office. he says the terrorists would not have been able to get into the country in the first place. jeb bush spoke about this and more on cbs this morning. >> when many people looked at this campaign before it really began. you were the guy they thought would be the front-runner. the first vote doesn't take place until february. people look at the numbers i repeated and say what happened
to jeb bush. >> i was one of though that thought i was the front-runner. i know i have to go tell the jeb story. people know me as george's boy, george's brother the they don't know that i was an effective conservative governor that disrupted the old order in florida. and made big changes i tell that story each and every day. it resonates. >> why can't you have more resonance then, this long, two debates from telling the jeb bush story. what's the problem to connect with the voters? >> it's not a problem. we are just starting. the important race is iowa. new hampshire. new hampshire. south carolina. nevada. you go into the super tuesday states. building an organization in all the places the i feel confident where we are right now? >> during the democratic debate. bernie sanders said they're stick of the e-mails. are you sick and tired of donald trump. he is gifting all the attention in the race. all the candidates are saying, look, we are over here weft have something to say. how are you and your team dealing with the donald trump candidacy.
>> i admire the fact that he is politically incorrect. we are too uptight as a nation. and i admire the fact that he doesn't feel embarrassinged about his wealth. what ls do i admire. let me think. running out of things. he's got a great family. >> is it frustrating? >> ultimately people are going to want to know who is going to sit behind the big desk. who is going to be making decisions that impact millions of americans. are we going to be sam. are we going to create a climate? >> anything about donald trump that makes you think we would not be safe and worried if he was there? >> i have no clue. that's the point. he hasn't shared his views. when he talks foreign policy. how putin ought to take care of isis. and isis ought to take care of assad. send refugees back to syria to their slaughter. these are serious times. you need a person who has the trem prame temperament and do it with compassion and conviction.
and have the skills to lead. over the long haul that's the lane i will stay in. i believe i will be effective. i don't know about donald trump's view of leadership. he talks about himself the whole time. rather than what he would do. >> governor, i want to ask you a couple policy serious questions. quickly, you talked about being your own man do. you see your brother. george w. bush coming out on the campaign trail with you. >> i don't know. he has been helpful raising money. giving me advice. last republican to be elected. the one before that. the one guy that i rely on, on, on, you know the ebbing and flowing of politics. it is pretty wild. he has done it. >> let me talk to you about afghanistan. the front page of the pay tires day. president obama leaves office in 15 months. saying the draw down will be left to his successor. you have said that obama is short changing our military commander. be specific. how many american troops would you leave in the ground in afghanistan. >> take the recommendation of the, the general that was responsible for it. who is now the chairman of the joint chiefs.
10,000 troops. 9,800 troops. the proper place to be. without a time line. the minute you create a time line. you are also, your opponents, enemies are organizing for waiting you out. i think that's the proper thing to do. >> insurance company says the valley wildfire in northern california last month did $1.5 billion in damage. it destroyed more than 1,200 homes. four people were killed. four firefighters injured. eight firefighters from middletown lost their own homes. here's carter evans. >> i had been seeing burned houses all day. knowing this was mine. and knowing there was nothing i could do. it's surreal. cal fire battalion chief, paul duncan says he took all the proper precautions. >> this was all green. we had done our clearances. >> reporter: when duncan saw smoke in the distance the he left his wife courtney and daughters rose and page. and raced towards the flames. the valley fire was 25 miles from his home when it suddenly
