Sen. Feinstein says credibility is being lost on Obama, Clinton

The Sunday political news shows were abuzz with talk of the Benghazi hearing, but a few guests focused on specifically defending former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton with the hope she will run for president in 2016. Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., appearing with David Gregory on NBC’s Meet the Press, was one of them.

After showing a clip of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., from a February appearance alleging a Benghazi cover-up, Gregory asked if the criticism was warranted.

“Well, I think some of it is,” Feinstein replied. “My concern is, when Hillary Clinton’s name is mentioned 32 times in a hearing, that a point of the hearing is to discredit the secretary of state, who has very high popularity, and may well be a candidate for president.”

Rand Paul says in Iowa, as he’s ramping up for a presidential run, talking about Secretary Clinton, ‘It was inexcusable. It was a dereliction of duty, he said. ‘It should preclude her from holding higher office.’” Gregory said.

“Well, I think that’s nonsense,” Feinstein responded. “And I think the American people will think it’s nonsense. This is a woman who has devoted herself to the job, who has traveled the earth, who has tried to bring countries and organizations and groups closer together. She’s a builder, not a divider.”

According to Mediaite, The Weekly Standard‘s William Kristol, also defended Clinton blasting Republican groups for running ads against Hillary, while Sens. McCain and Susan Collins, R-Maine, argued that impeachment of President Obama would probably not happen.
