Former President Bill Clinton discussed debt, deficit, economic growth and inequality Wednesday with Gwen Ifill as part of the 2014 Fiscal Summit sponsored by the Peterson Foundation in Washington, D.C.

Ifill also asked Mr. Clinton to discuss his wife’s role in the investigation of the Sept. 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that took the lives of four people, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Mr. Clinton said that the former Secretary of State made the right steps in the aftermath of the attack by assembling a high level review committee.

“(The panel) looked into what was wrong; they gave 29 recommendations. She took them and started implementing them,” he said, referring to Mrs. Clinton’s actions.
