Exactly 24 hours prior to the vice presidential debate, on Wednesday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited high-ranking members from each campaign to share their perspectives, and offer insight, into the state of the race for the White House.
Joining via satellite, Debbie Wasserman Schultz addressed the recent criticism of the Obama administration in regards to the handling of intelligence and information about the U.S. Embassy attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
A rather heated discussion ensued between Morgan and the chairwoman of the Democratic National Convention when Morgan suggested that "Ambassador Rice and others made public statements which were deliberately misleading," in telling the public that the attack was a result of an inflammatory video offending Muslims and the Islamic faith.
"I can't even believe that you would suggest that Ambassador Rice would make deliberately misleading statements," replied an incredulous Wasserman Schultz. "Piers, it is not, it is not OK for you to be saying that the administration was putting out completely false statements."
"Because these investigations are complicated and detailed and rather than say absolutely nothing, rather than - you know, than not give information to the American people, Ambassador Rice went out and talked about what they believed to be happening at the time with the information on - from the intelligence community that she had," said Wasserman Schultz.
"But it is irresponsible and Un-American, quite frankly, for my colleagues, my Republican colleagues in Congress to be jumping on this immediately as some political opportunity."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, to see Wasserman Schultz's reaction when Morgan tells the DNC chair that she is "flogging the wrong dead horse."
