Hillary Clinton got into heated arguments Wednesday while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the administration's response to the September attacks in Benghazi.
On Sept. 12, 2012, the American diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya was hit by an armed group that killed four people, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. An investigation into the identity of the attackers and how the U.S. government handled the aftermath is still ongoing.
On Wednesday morning, Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson stated, "We were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that. That was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the American people could have known that within days."
Clinton, who said she takes full responsibility in her opening remarks, immediately responded by saying, "What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again."
Later on, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul told Clinton she should be fired.
"One of the things that disappointed me most about the original 9/11 is that no one was fired," Paul said. "The people who make judgment errors need to be replaced, fired and no longer in a position to make judgment calls... Had I been President at the time, I would have relieved you of your post."
