Sharyl Attkisson is an award-winning investigator who says CBS executives hid key Benghazi information for the sole purpose of helping Obama win his 2012 election and to hurt Romney.
Attkisson spent 20 years as a network reporter covering Obama scandals such as the Fast & Furious gun-running and the attack on the Benghazi compound that left four Americans dead.
“They, in my view, skipped over it, passed it up, kept it secret throughout the whole time when it would have been relevant to the news,” she said.
“And I think that was because they were trying to defend the president and they thought that would be harmful to him.”
Attkisson quit her prestigious CBS job after clashes with management and what she described as efforts to suppress or kill stories she was working on, stories that could have been highly critical of Obama and top officials in his administration.
