Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) on Sunday said the Obama administration’s storyline surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi “doesn’t pass the laugh test.”

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Ayotte accused the administration of changing the Benghazi narrative in the weeks leading up to the 2012 presidential election so that it wouldn’t hurt President Obama’s campaign.
“The White House was pushing a political explanation leading up to an election,” Ayotte said. “The president had been saying al Qaeda was on the run. They were trying to push a narrative of strength in foreign policy and that did not fit their narrative. This was actually an indication of a broader failure in foreign policy.”
