Julian Castro defends Hillary Clinton as veep chatter grows: Benghazi probe like a ‘witch hunt’

Sunday, May 24, 2015
Julian Castro, the up-and-coming Obama cabinet secretary who is frequently mentioned as a likely running mate for Hillary Clinton, called Republican efforts to pin blame on his prospective future boss for the 2012 Benghazi attacks a “witch hunt.”
“What you have here with these emails is basically a witch hunt, and Congressman (Trey) Gowdy (R-S.C.), who is leading this, is very intentionally trying to manipulate this witch hunt to play politics,” Castro, who serves as President Obama’s Secretary for Housing and Urban Development, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“This thing has been studied to death, by Republicans and by Democrats, several committees, including in Congress, that have all said, ‘Yes, of course what happened was tragic, but Secretary Clinton was not in any way at fault,’ ” Castro said.
Last week, the U.S. Department of State, responding to pressure from a select House committee investigating Clinton’s response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks, released hundreds of emails from the then-secretary of state to other State Department officials.
Castro, a rising star in Democratic circles, is thought to be near, or at, the top of the list of potential running mates for Clinton — if she wins the party’s presidential nomination — due to his public speaking skills, as well as his Latino ethnicity, which many strategists think could help attract the Latino vote.
