“How could you look at everything when you don’t even bother to interview the person who is ultimately responsible for what happens at the State Dept?” Gowdy asked the head of the Accountability Review Board, Admiral Mullen at today’s Oversight hearing.
Mullen replied that they “found no evidence that she was involved in the decision making, and no need therefore” —
But Gowdy interrupted saying that she was responsible for the decision making (per a 1998 ARB recommendation regarding Sec. of State responsibilities)…
He asked Mullen if he interviewed the president about whether he made any calls to our allies in the region to ask for help since our people were under attack. Mullen answered in the negative.
He also asked about the “heads up” Mullen gave to the State Dept. about Charlene Lamb testifying.
Mullen answered that he didn’t think the State Dept. would be represented well by having her testify.
“But the facts pick the witnesses”, Gowdy countered.
