Griffin opposes Susan Rice as Hillary replacement

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (Arkansas News Bureau) – U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin is opposing the possible nomination of Susan Rice to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.

In a letter sent to President Obama on Monday, Griffin and 96 other House Republicans said they are "deeply troubled" that she is being considered for the top diplomatic post.

"We believe her misleading statements over the days and weeks following the attack on our embassy in Libya that led to the deaths of Ambassador (Christopher) Stevens and three other Americans caused irreparable damage to her credibility," they wrote.

Clinton has indicated that she does not plan to serve in Obama's second administration and will step down as secretary of state.
