As new emails thrust the deadly attack on the US compound in Benghazi back into the political spotlight, and with reports surfacing that allege the IRS targeted the Tea Party, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Olympia Snowe to share her political insight and perspective.
A former Republican senator from Maine, Snowe surprised many by choosing not to run for what would have been a fourth term, sighting an inability for Democrats and the GOP to work together effectively.
Speaking live with Piers Morgan, the 66-year-old detailed her sentiments Monday night:
"Congress needs to get to the bottom of it and I think the White House has to provide those answers, but it has to be done on a bipartisan basis," she said, referring to such issues as Libya, and political targeting by the Internal Revenue Service. "Seeking the truth should be a bipartisan pursuit. Republicans cannot be overly political about it, and the Democrats cannot be overly dismissive."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Snowe reveals the reaction amongst her colleagues after ending her political career and authoring a book entitled "Fighting for Common Ground: How We Can Fix the Stalemate in Congress."
