3:31 am
in the it's friday, october 23rd. >> from abc news, this is "world news now". >> good morning. >> we have emus and john travolta to get to. hillary clinton is back on the campaign trail this morning after an 11-hour day before the benghazi committee. >> and clinton the chairman of the committee shaking hands there. when it was all over after 9:00 p.m. eastern. talk about marathon hearing. before that hours of very aggressive questioning and tense moments. can abc's jonathan carl reports from capitol hill. >> hillary clinton was all smiles as she came before the committee that she's accuses of being on a partisan witch hunt with huge crowds lining the hallways outside from the start the republican chairman was defensive. >> madame secretary, i understand. >> there are people frankly in
3:32 am
both party who have suggested that this investigation is about you. let me assure you it is not and let me assure you why it is not. this investigation is about four people who were killed representing our country on foreign soil. >> and the top democrat on the attack. >> republicans are squandering millions of taxpayer dollars on this abusive effort to derail secretary clinton's presidential campaign. >> republicans released a never seen before e-mail mrs. clinton wrote on the very night of that deadly attack at benghazi. it was addressed to diane reynolds, the name she used for e-mail sent to her daughter chelsea. two of our officers were killed in benghazi by an al qaeda linked group. that's quite different than what the obama administration said in the days after the attack that killed four americans including and bass door chris stevens that it was a spontaneous protest over an anti-islamic video that grew violent. >> you tell the american people one thing, you tell your family
3:33 am
an entirely different story. why didn't you just speak plain to the american people? >> well, congressman, there was a lot of conflicting information that we were trying to make sense of. the situation was very fluid. it was fast-moving. > republicans also demanding to know why the state department had denied several request requests for more security in the months before the attack. >> can you not for why that is, why we have increasing requests and yet no increase in security? >> well, congressman, i can only tell you that i know a number of requests were fulfilled. and some were not. >> mrs. clinton took responsibility for what happened as she has in the past. >> i would imagine i've thought more about what happened than all of you put together. i've lost more sleep than all of you put together. i have been racking my brain about what more could have been done. >> republicans came with printouts of clinton's e-mails related to lynnia and asked why there were so few in the months before the attack implying that

she was not paying attention. >> libya, benghazi, chris stevens, the staff there, they seem to fall off your radar in 2012 and the situation is getting much worse. >> well, congresswoman, i did not conduct most of the business that i did on behalf of our country on e-mail. i conducted it in meetings. i read massive amounts of memos, great deal of classified information. i made a lot of secure phone calls. i was in and out of the white house all the time. >> and again and again, republicans pressed her about her e-mails from her old friend sidney blumenthal. >> help us understand how sidney blumenthal had that kind of access to you, madame secretary, but the ambassador did not. >> that line of questioning made democrats furious as the two sides started fighting with each other. >> the whole truth and nothing but the whole truth. that's what we want to have. let the world see it. >> why is it that you only want mr. blumenthal's transcript released. >> they went at it.
3:35 am
hngt just looked on. if republicans were hoping to draw blood with this hearing, they cannot really succeed. in the face of questioning, hillary clinton was calm, sober and substantive and when republicans tried to engage her in political fights, she didn't take the bait. jonathan carl, abc news, capitol hill. hillary clinton did get three breaks during the hearings, each one about an hour long. so that means she spent more than eight hours before the panel. the word e-mail was mentioned near 300 times and the committee has interviewed 54 witnesses with more to come. so far the committee's investigation has cost taxpayers just under $5 million. a major political boost for republican presidential rsh candidate ben carson. one poll shows that he's a fronts runner iowa. the latest quinnipiac poll shows carson with 28% of the iowa vote, that's eight points ahead of donald trump. marco rubio 13% it, ted cruz 13% was trump slipping to second.
