WILLIAMS: Right. But that was not the assessment as the official assessment from the intelligence community.

REP. JASON CHAFFETZ, R-UTAH: Yesterday at the hearing Charleen Lamb testified that she could witness this virtually in real-time. Real-time, they didn't have to wait until later and Ambassador Kennedy from the State Department came to Capitol Hill within 36 hours and told members of Congress, their staff that he thought he was a terrorist attack.

WILLIAMS: What did he say yesterday, Jason?

CHAFFETZ: That's exactly what he said.

WILLIAMS: He said it was not at the time we were there; we did not think it was a terrorist attack.

CHAFFETZ: Witnessing it in real-time there was no protest. And I spent the day
Saturday in Libya. There isn't a single person who ever mentioned the video.

HANNITY: I know this is important. You heard all the four hours of the testimony. So two weeks later when the president is still blaming a movie trailer he knows that is false, right? When Joe Biden said what he said tonight is inaccurate?

CHAFFETZ: I think the intelligence community knew that evening that it was a terrorist attack and had nothing to do with the video. And there was no protest.

WILLIAMS: And you're saying the corruption in the intelligence community is that they'd issue an assessment?

CHAFFETZ: No. I don't, I think it's shocking to me just that 30 days after the death of four Americans including our ambassador, 30 days afterwards he looks people in the eye and said there was never a request for more security. Absolutely, there was a request.

WILLIAMS: He didn't know about the request.

CHAFFETZ: Ignorance is not a defense.
