Kirsten Powers on Benghazi: 'Bill Clinton Would Not Have Gotten Away With This'

Kirsten Powers said something Saturday that should deeply embarrass so-called journalists across the fruited plain.

Appearing on Fox News Watch, Powers - who was Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Public Affairs in the Clinton administration - said of the job the current White House is doing with the Benghazi cover up, "Bill Clinton would not have gotten away with this" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MONICA CROWLEY: Yeah, and you also have mounting evidence which we saw this week, too, of a White House and a State Department at the very highest levels engaging in lies and stonewalling, intimidation and bullying. If you reverse this and say if this were a President John McCain or President Mitt Romney, this media would be all over the story every single day.

KIRSTEN POWERS: If it was President Bill Clinton. I'm sorry, like I worked in the Clinton administration. I have never seen anything like this. Bill Clinton would not have gotten away with this.

Is she right?

After all, Clinton got away with a lot during his eight years in the White House.
