(Video) Sen. Graham: No Hagel or Brennan confirmations without more info from White House

While on CBS' Face the Nation this morning, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that he doesn't want to see Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense or John Brennan as CIA Director until the White House releases more information on its response to the Benghazi attacks.

"I don’t think we should allow Brennan to go forward for the CIA directorship, Hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense, until the White House gives us an accounting," Graham told host Bob Schieffer. "Did the president ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the Libyan government to help these folks? What did the president do?"

Schieffer asked Graham if he would work to block these nominations, The South Carolinian replied, "Yes, I’m going to ask my colleagues, just like they did with John Bolton, Joe Biden said no confirmation without information."
