Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took a page out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook today when asked why he was the only member of Congress notified prior to Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s prisoner swap for five Taliban commanders.

An incredulous Reid responded to a press question about the Bergdahl trade by echoing Clinton's now-infamous quote:

“The whole deal, is it Friday or Saturday? What difference does it make?” Reid said. “What difference does it make?”

Clinton testified that it no longer makes a difference whether or not the administration's widely discredited claim that the Benghazi attack was prompted by a video was false.

The law requires congressional notification for any detainee transfers out of Guantanamo Bay 30 days in advance. President Obama ignored this provision in the Bergdahl case. But, to Reid and Clinton, the details of any controversial national security decisions by the Obama Administration are beyond reproach.

Bergdahl or Benghazi, there's no difference in the administration's response.
