Charles Krauthammer told Fox News yesterday that newly-released White House e-mail on the Benghazi talking points is “equivalent of what was discovered with the Nixon tapes.”

When questioned on Fox News if he had changed his mind on a statement last month regarding how Republicans should let Benghazi go, Krauthammer replied,

“Yes, because of the appearance of this memo. It’s, to me, equivalent of what was discovered with the Nixon tapes. The point is that Republicans have done a terrible job in building the case. Even today, I have to say. The questioning was disjointed, it was not organized. If they had appointed a special committee, a long time ago, the way it was it was done in Watergate, we would have had answers on this and the country wouldn’t be tired. But what I did say was the reason that it would not go anywhere was the lack of interest of the other media. And what’s changed now, and we saw it in the briefing room, is that I think the other media are somewhat embarrassed by the fact that, unlike Fox, they allowed themselves to be stoned and spun and rolled for a year and a half, and now the memo appears and it’s obvious that they missed the story.”
