Official Who Edited Benghazi Talking Points Reportedly Interested In Becoming A Clinton 2016 Advisor

The Wall Street Journal reports that Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell, who took the blame for editing the Obama administration’s Benghazi talking points, is “interested in advising future presidential campaigns” and “is close to Hillary Clinton”:

As he leaves the agency, Mr. Morell says he is weighing opportunities on corporate boards, with security-consulting firms, and on the speaker’s circuit. But Mr. Morell, 54 years old, who joined the CIA straight out of the University of Akron, still sees a potential return to government, saying he is interested in advising future presidential campaigns. Officials note he is close to Hillary Clinton, who is believed to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid.
