The Republican National Committee has submitted a Freedom of Information Request for emails between the State Department and President Obama's re-election campaign in an effort to get the truth about talking points developed to explain the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The FOIA requests copies of all emails and documents that include the words "Libya" and/or "Benghazi" between State Department employees and Obama's campaign staff between September 11 and November 7, 2012. This time period covers the 9/11 attack and the appearance of UN Ambassador Susan Rice on five Sunday shows when she blamed a YouTube video.
“Americans need to know whether the State Department had any contact with the staff of the president’s reelection campaign as talking points on Benghazi were drafted and edited. We certainly hope political considerations didn’t come into play when the administration decided what to tell the American people, but the administration’s changing answers certainly raise valid concerns that we don’t know the full story," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. Assuming there was no contact between the State Department and the campaign, this should be an easy request to fill."
