Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton unloaded on Congress’ Benghazi investigation during a Monday morning interview on the “Today” show.

A visibly angry Clinton tore into the Republican-led Select Committee on Benghazi when she was asked how she would react to hypothetical GOP leaders facing scrutiny over their own government email use.

“Look at the situation they chose to exploit, to go after me for political reasons: the death of four Americans in Benghazi. I knew the ambassador. I identified him. I asked him to go there. I asked the president to nominate him,” she said.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, has struggled to answer questions over her own email use in recent months.

She long dismissed the scrutiny but, after she tumbled a bit in polls, recently started apologizing and opening up her campaign to the media.
