GOP lawmaker rejects claims Hilary makes in her Benghazi chapter

(CNN) – Hillary Clinton's book "Hard Choices" doesn't come out until June 10, but there is already insight into the message the former Secretary of State wants to send.

Politico obtained Clinton's 34-page chapter on her role in the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans in 2012 at U.S. diplomatic posts.

Clinton's tone in recounting the events is described as "defiant."

She is coming out swinging in this chapter, saying what happened in Benghazi has been used as a political tool, and writing that that "minimizes the sacrifice" of those who lost their lives.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has been an outspoken critic of Hillary Clinton and the White House on this issue, and he isn't buying any of it. Check out his response in the video above.
