Hillary Clinton on Benghazi: 'Some choose not to be satisfied'

Hillary Clinton told Robin Roberts of ABC News Wednesday that she is "content" with the Benghazi investigation and admonished, "some choose not to be satisfied."

Last week, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act revealing the role of the Obama Administration in guiding the disputed Benghazi talking points. As a result, House Speaker John Boehner called for a select committee to be headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, who has been receiving "death threats...because of his role in investigating the 2012 attacks," as reported yesterday at Politico.

Clinton was speaking at an event for Philanthropy New York sponsored by the Ford Foundation. Clinton is also receiving an award on the same day at another event sponsored by the International Crisis Group (ICG), where she will be honored for her "outstanding contributions to advancing peace & security."

It should be noted that ICG Board co-chair Thomas R. Pickering will be presenting the award to Hillary Clinton. Pickering also served as chairman of the infamous Accountability Review Board (ARB) report on Benghazi.

During the Philanthropy New York event, Clinton also discussed how the federal government has done an "inadequate job" of informing parents about the importance of early childhood education. The likely Democratic presidential candidate said that she "applauds" New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's push for a universal Pre-K program.

Billionaire George Soros also serves on the ICG board, and has also applauded de Blasio's Pre-K initiative.

Referring to the Benghazi investigation, Clinton said, "I don't see any reason why it should continue in this way."
