ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Fireworks at the Benghazi panel came from bickering between Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and Rep. Elijah Cummings who bickered over the role Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal played in Libya. "We just heard, email and email after email, about Libya and Benghazi that Sidney Blumenthal sent to the Secretary of State." Gowdy said. "I don't care if he sent it by morse code, carrier pigeon, smoke signals, the fact that he happen to send it by email is irrelevant what is relevant is that he was sending information to the Secretary of State." Cummings responded, "you asked for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, well that is what we want to have. Let the world see it." Clinton's appearance before the Benghazi panel was another major challenge for Clinton, who has been on a hot streak with a strong performance in last week's first Democratic debate and the news that her strongest potential challenger, Vice President Joe Biden, will not seek the Democratic nomination.
