Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) used a very familiar line to deflect questions about what he knew and when about the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
“This is making a big deal over nothing,” Reid said. “The whole deal, is it Friday or Saturday? What difference does it make? What difference does it make?"
The controversy stems from a disagreement between Reid and President Obama's White House about when exactly Reid was told of the deal. Reid's office claims the White House told them Friday, while the White House insists they told Reid Saturday.
Reid's answer at a Capitol Hill press conference today mirrors the same line Hillary Clinton used to deflect questions about what she knew about the killings of four Americans at a U.S. asset in Benghazi.
"With all due respect," Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, "the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they'd they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? "
