Issa: Clinton’s ‘Not a Target’

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., displays a letter of praise from President Obama to Gregory Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya, number two in rank to slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, during a House Oversight Committee hearing about last year's deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, May 8, 2013. House Republicans insist the Obama administration is covering up information about the attack, rejecting administration assurances to the contrary and stoking a controversy with implications for the 2016 presidential race.

    Time for the Sunday-morning assault. Key House Republican Darrell Issa of California insisted on Sunday on Meet the Press that the investigation into Benghzai isn’t targeting Hillary Clinton or the Democratic Party. Issa is the head of the investigation into the State Department’s response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. Issa said he would seek depositions on the Benghazi review board heads Ambassador Thomas Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen. Meanwhile, former Defense secretary Robert Gates on Face the Nation Sunday defended the administration’s response, and said that he would have done the same while at the helm of the Defense Department.
