(Wall Street Journal) David Axelrod, a former White House adviser and senior strategist for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, said Wednesday that the administration should release emails related to last year's terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
The White House so far has resisted calls to make the emails public, as Republicans' demands for their release have intensified and as portions of the correspondence have leaked out in media reports. Administration officials have said the emails, which show the discussion among several agencies as they developed "talking points" about the assault on the American diplomatic compound, were provided to lawmakers months ago.
On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Mr. Axelrod suggested that the White House should go further, saying, "I think they would benefit from getting all these emails out in public."
