CNN Host Don Lemon Blows up on Air: 'I Don't Want to Hear About Benghazi'

On Friday night, CNN's Don Lemon hosted political commentator Ben Ferguson for what would turn out to be a rousing exchange.

The panel of guests was on to discuss President Donald Trump's interview with The New York Times; however, it quickly turned to his former political opponent.

Ferguson argued that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been privy to special treatment and cited her use of a personal server as an example.

He noted that Clinton sent “those top-secret classified documents to people that aren't even cleared to see them,” which were then forwarded by Huma Abedin to her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).

Lemon fired back with the comment that the FBI has already investigated her emails, there's been “a million hearings on it,” and he called it “water under the bridge.”

While Lemon wondered what Ferguson's comment had to do with anything, he retorted it isn't “water under the bridge” for “the rest of the people in this country.”

The CNN host repeatedly said “no” before he cut to a commercial break. However, it wasn't long before the two were again sparring over Clinton's past.

“Listen, I don't want to hear about Benghazi; I don't want to hear about uranium,” he explained to his guest when they returned to the air. “It has been litigated a million times.”

Ferguson interjected with the allegation that Lemon doesn't want to hear about Benghazi because it “doesn't fit the narrative,” to which the host retorted it's “irrelevant.”
