Michelle Malkin Likens Hillary Clinton's Benghazi Testimony to Holder's After Fast and Furious: 'I Didn't Read What Was Addressed to Me'

Michelle Malkin took on Republican lawmakers on Fox and Friends this morning for failing to challenge Secretary of State Hillary Clinton more aggressively during yesterday's hearings on the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack.

Malkin said Republicans should have spent more time laying out the basic facts about Benghazi for the American people, adding "repetition is key" especially with "low-information voters." She pointed out there were only a handful of references to the Obama administration's initial claims about an anti-Islam video sparking protests on the night of the attack.

"Did they take an oath of office not to mention it yesterday?" Malkin joked.

Malkin compared the situation to the Fast and Furious scandal at the Justice Department, since Clinton says she did not see the requests for more security at the Benghazi consulate.

"This seems to be a theme with this administration. It's the same kind of excuse that was in vogue during Fast and Furious. (Attorney General) Eric Holder, even though 'the buck stops with him,' and he's in charge of course, gave the same excuse, 'I didn't read what was addressed to me," Malkin said.

Watch the full interview, including Malkin's thoughts about the latest issues in the gun control debate.
